Accessible Public Rights-of-Way Guidelines: U.S. Access Board Webinar

ASLA 2020 Professional Urban Design Award of Excellence. Dilworth Park, Philadelphia, PA. OLIN / Sahar Coston-Hardy

The next webinar in the U.S. Access Board's free monthly series will take place April 1 from 2:30 – 4:00 (ET), and will review available resources, namely the guidelines that the 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.

This is a great opportunity for landscape architects to learn how to navigate the challenges of ensuring access to public streets and sidewalks since new guidelines for accessible, public rights-of-way have not yet been finalized under the ADA. Questions can be submitted in advance of the session or can be posed during the live webinar.

Visit www.accessibilityonline.org for more information or to register. All webinars include video remote interpreting (VRI) and real-time captioning. The webinar series is hosted by the ADA National Network in cooperation with the Board. Archived copies of previous Board webinars are available on the site.
