Accessible Public Rights-of-Way

Thursday, April 1, 2021

Description

Ensuring access to public streets and sidewalks can be a challenge since new guidelines for accessible public rights-of-way have not yet been finalized under the ADA. This webinar will review available resources in the interim, namely the guidelines that the Access Board previously proposed for public rights-of-way and shared use paths. Presenters will discuss common issues and solutions, as well as review proposed requirements for sidewalks and street crossings, curb ramps and blended transitions, detectable warnings, pedestrian signals, on-street parking, street furniture, transit stops, and other components of public rights-of-way and shared use paths.
