This course will present a brief introduction of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) design requirements and guidelines for public rights-of-way. Based on engineering design guidelines, several design challenges will be discussed in class to provide options that the engineer and designer can consider.

Participant familiarity with the U.S. Access Board’s draft Proposed Guidelines for Pedestrian Facilities in the Public Right-of-Way is recommended, but not required, prior to attending this course. This publication may be downloaded at:
