Deck Stairs width & Railing


Hello. I couldn't find any info in my deck permit book or any of my other books but how wide can deck stairs be before you need a railing in the center?

Not that I am aware of for residential, only the minimum:2009=
R311.7.1 Width. Stairways shall not be less than 36 inches (914 mm) in clear width at all points above the permitted handrail height and below the required headroom height. Handrails shall not project more than 4.5 inches (114 mm) on either side of the stairway and the minimum clear width of the stairway at and below the handrail height, including treads and landings, shall not be less than 311/2 inches (787 mm) where a handrail is installed on one side and 27 inches (698 mm) where handrails are provided on both sides.
Try locally.

All you have to do is call the town and ask them.
