#### b. Example 2

A -3.50% grade intersects a +2.00% at station 12+17.53 and elevation 634.25 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 half stations

(3) Station and elevation of the curves highest and lowest points

The computations are left to the reader. The answers are shown for checking your work.

Low point at sta 12+72.07 and elev 636.80 ft.
