A +9.00% grade intersects a -7.00% at station 50+70.26 and elevation 239.12 ft. A 400.00 ft. curve will be used to connect the two grades. Compute:

(1) Station and elevation for the curve's endpoints
(2) Elevations and grades at full stations
(3) Station and elevation of the curve's highest and/or lowest points

First, draw a sketch

A vertical curve has an incoming grade of +4.4% and an exit grade of -2.2%. The length of the curve is 450.00 ft. The intersection of the grades is at 10+00 and the elevation at that point is 440.00. Compute the elevation of the +00 points on the curve. Then determine the location and elevation of the highest point on the curve. If there is an existing bridge at this location over the proposed road, and the elevation of its...
