Americans with Disabilities Act: Sidewalk Facilities for Public Rights-of-Way
The Kentucky Transportation Center’s Technology Transfer Program is pleased to offer the Americans with Disabilities Act: Sidewalk Facilities for Public Rights-of-Way workshop. This one-day course will discuss sidewalk, curb ramp, and crosswalk requirements mandated under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
This workshop is designed to offer participants information allowing them to better understand the needs of disabled individuals. Participants will also walk away from this workshop with tools that will help them to design infrastructure projects that maximize accessibility for all users. Proper dimensions and slopes for pedestrian facilities, the correct placement of detectable warning surfaces, and accessibility challenges posed by inflexible existing conditions will all be discussed along with many other topics. The workshop will also include brief overviews of ADA, the Proposed Accessibility Guidelines for Pedestrian Facilities in the Public Right-of-Way (PROWAG), U.S. Department of Transportation requirements pertaining to accessibility, and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s accessibility program.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Carla Crossfield at 800-432-0719 or [email protected].
Fee: $225 per person
