temporary construction

i have seen numerous instances of a local jurisdiction performing construction in the public right of way and installing water pipes or hoses at the bottom of curb ramps with an asphalt patch on top.  the patch appears to serve the dual purpose of anchoring the pipe or hose in place and "smoothing out" the transition from the curb ramp slope to to the gutter.  i maintain this is not accessible, but cannot cite any actual guidelines or standards.  has anybody else come across this?

406.5 Location. Curb ramps and the flared sides of curb ramps shall be located so that they do not project into vehicular traffic lanes, parking spaces, or parking access aisles. Curb ramps at marked crossings shall be wholly contained within the markings, excluding any flared sides.

 

I have seen that also, but not as bad as your photo
