How wide is the cat walk up in the Arco Arena rafters in Sacramento, CA?

How wide is the cat walk up in the Arco Arena rafters in Sacramento, CA (where the Sacramento Kings play)?

Former Sacramento Kings owner Greg Lukenbill walked out on the catwalk during a game back in the late 1980's to attach a tarp that would catch rain that was leaking through the roof onto the court and that was preventing the game from being played.

I've been to Arco Arena in Sacramento, CA several times, but from even the upper most part of the arena, it is hard to tell how wide this catwalk is (and therefore exactly how dangerous it is to walk on).

The catwalk goes all the way across the arena and it a couple hundred feet from the arena's basketball court.

Read about the story here: or do a Google search for "Greg Lukenbill catwalk" to read other accounts about this incident.

The problem is that none of these articles mention how wide this catwalk is--they only mention that is located up at the Arco Arena rafters.

Looks like ~2 seats wide.  At seat width of 20-21", that's a little under 4 feet.

That was probably the original Arco which was a converted warehouse temporarily used until the permanent one was constructed.

The incident that I'm referring to happened in the current Arco Arena where the Kings still play.

I made the image by overlaying a seating diagram with a rigging/lighting diagram that's provided to show promoters.  They're PDF versions off the web site.  I'm sure you can get higher-res CAD files if you're an actual promoter renting the facility.

I threw the diagrams into layers in Illustrator and lined up the support columns with the gaps in the seating.  You can open this PDF file in Adobe Illustrator and see three layers.

Files came from here, and are public...I have no inside source.
