Does Traffic Live load applies on sidewalk along with pedestrian load? Sidewalk is between exterior barrier and interior barrier, i.e vehicle can not mount on sidewalk. AASHTO says "The pedestrian load shall not be considered to act concurrently with vehicles", I assumed that only pedestrian load of 0.075 ksf on sidewalk and no traffic load on sidewalk. But later when I analysis the model using PG Super software, I found that traffic live load is considered on sidewalk too and there is no any option to consider only pedestrian load.
