…At times, you will want to vary the design of your corridor over a given area.…Regions are excellent tools for…accomplishing this, because they allow you to subdivide your corridor and…apply different design parameters in different locations.…In this video, you'll learn how to create a region and…change its parameters to change the design of a portion of your corridor.…In this example, what we'd like to do is change the design over…a certain area to remove the sidewalk.…Specifically, we want to end the sidewalk at station 45 plus 00, so…that from that point northward, no sidewalk exists on the design road.…
Perhaps the owner wanted to cut some cost, or perhaps because of the large fill…area in this location, the owner felt that the side walk wasn't necessary.…So, to make this possible, to allow us to have a different design for…one part of our corridor than the other, we need to use regions.…To create a region,…I'll first click the corridor to bring up the Contextual Ribbon tab.…And, here I see two commands that I can use to create a new region.…
