Public Rights of Way

Tuesday, September 29, 2020


Agencies strive to offer vibrant, healthy places for their citizens and visitors to enjoy. Making facilities and transportation accessible to everyone, including seniors and people with disabilities can be difficult in an environment with existing constraints. This session will discuss the technical criteria aspects of pedestrian access in the public right of way of the proposed Public Right of Way Guidelines and obligations of states and local agencies under the Americans with Disabilities Act to make the public right of way accessible. Topics covered include the minimum criteria for pedestrian access routes, curb ramps, street crossings, accessible pedestrian signals, parking, and transit.

NOTE: This is a 2 hour session.
