The project was installed October 2010 to provide the University’s Student Activities Center with an emergency vehicle access lane that was also natural in appearance and aesthetically pleasing for the campus community. The lane is also used extensively as a walkway for students, so it was critical that an ADA compliant solution be used.

The site was revisited on June 6, 2011 as the UT Fire Prevention Services conducted a test of the fire lane with the Austin Fire Department.

The result? The test was a success, with the EZ Roll Gravel Paver supporting the weight of the truck with no lateral or vertical movement.

In the words of the UT FPS Engineer, the pavers “worked great!” A visual inspection of the site revealed that the pavers not only performed to standard but also blended neatly with the surrounding buildings and landscape, meeting the University’s requirements that they not only be functional but also natural in appearance.
