Design of ADA Curb Ramps and Pedestrian Access Routes

This training is designed to ensure that pedestrian facilities and access routes, in particular curb ramps, along our roadways are properly design and constructed for all individuals, including those with disabilities. This training was developed to provide information and best practices for those involved in the design and maintenance of curb ramps and pedestrian facilities, and for those individuals that ensure the compliance to applicable accessibility laws and guidelines. This course is taught from the perspective of the Public Rights-of-Way Accessibility Guidelines (PROWAG), a best practice for accessible pedestrian facilities in the public rights-of-way.

The workshop will include a brief overview of the ADA, FHWA requirements, group exercise designing curb ramps, and video presentations by the United States Access Board to provide the attendees with background information and points-of-view of persons with disabilities navigating our pedestrian network.

Target Audience

Public officials, engineers, designers, technicians, road/street supervisors, construction & maintenance personnel, landscape architects, municipal attorneys and others responsible for regulatory compliance and management of liability risk will find the workshop beneficial.
