Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

I am preparing a tentative map in the Temple City and wanted to get the County standards for private driveway with cul-de-sac. I downloaded the private drive-local cul-de-sac w/parallel parking and the private drive local from your website. What I am looking for are the design standards for the cul-de-sac (ie. min. radius).

Thank you for using our FAQ system.

Our private drive manual can be found online using the link below.

As a general rule of thumb a 32' radius should be adequate however you will have to contact LA County Fire Department to obtain approval for any private driveway and fire lane. The radius could also change based on specific design parameters. (i.e. length of cul-de-sac, grades, etc). If you have additional questions regarding road design please contact our Land Development Division Road Unit at (626)458-4921.
