Accessible Pedestrian Signals

Thursday, May 5, 2016


Access for pedestrians at signalized intersections requires the right-of-way to be accessible and pedestrian signal information to be available to all users. This session will cover pedestrian signals that are accessible to all pedestrians, including those with vision or hearing impairments, and will also address basic intersection features such as curb ramps and accessible street crossings. Presenters will review requirements for accessible pedestrian signals in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices and discuss other signal and beacon information useful for designing safe and accessible street crossings. The Access Board will partner with the Federal Highway Administration to answer your questions and provide an overview of the proper implementation and usage of pedestrian signals.
