Special Session - "Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Accessibility Guidelines for Public Rights of Way"

Tuesday, August 9, 2011


The Board plans to publish a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on Accessibility Guidelines for Pedestrian Facilities in the Public Right-of-Way in late July 2011. The proposed guidelines ensure that sidewalks, pedestrian street crossings, pedestrian signals, and other facilities for pedestrian circulation and use located in the public right-of-way are readily accessible to and usable by pedestrians with disabilities. Revisions to previous draft guidelines are included in this NPRM along with another opportunity for public comment. This session will provide an overview of the NPRM, including major issues addressed in the notice such as alterations to existing facilities, existing facilities that are not altered, and allowances for typical roadway geometry. Time will be allotted for questions and answers.
