Design of ADA Curb Ramps and Pedestrian Access Routes (Virtual)
Date: 7/20/2020 10:00 AM - 7/27/2020 12:00 PM
This virtual live instructor led course 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. The 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. The information is presented 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 course 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.
The course will consist of three webex live instructor led classes. Attendees will receive links to the three classes after registering for the course.
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.
**People must attend all three dates to complete the training.
