Interior and Exterior Accessible Routes

Thursday, January 7, 2021

Description

Under the ADA and ABA Accessibility Standards, an accessible route must connect to all accessible elements and spaces on a site. This session will provide an in-depth review of when accessible routes are required and issues such as overlapping clear space requirements and door maneuvering clearances. The session will also address exterior routes such as site arrival points, connections to transit stops and public streets and sidewalks and unique accessible route exceptions permitted at recreation facilities. Presenters will highlight some of the more frequently asked questions and common source of confusion for accessible routes.
