U.S. Access Board Hosts Critical Webinars for Landscape Architects

The next webinar in the U.S. Access Board's free monthly series will take place January 7 from 2:30 – 4:00 (ET) and will provide an in-depth review of ADA and ABA requirements for interior accessible routes 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.
