ADA Guidelines: Designing Pedestrian Facilities using Public Right of Way Accessibility Guidelines

Start Date
End Date
The United States Access Board is the entity responsible for maintaining the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines. While the ADA guidelines address certain features common to public sidewalks, such as curb ramps, further guidance is necessary to address conditions and constraints unique to public rights-of-way. The Access Board has been developing Public Right of Way Accessibility Guidelines (PROWAG) for the past few years. Once PROWAGs are adopted by the Department of Justice, they will become enforceable under title II of the ADA. This course will provide a summary of the most recent PROWAGs that have been published by the Access Board and how they relate to the design of pedestrian facilities within public right of ways.
