Learners will be able to define what a public right-of-way is, and discuss the standards and guidelines prescribed by the 2010 ADA Accessibility Standards, the 2021 International Building Code, and PROWAG.
Learning Objective 2:
Learners will be able to design accessible pedestrian access routes with appropriate route widths, slopes, cross slopes, surfaces, changes in level, curb ramps, blended transitions, landings, detectable warnings, ramps and handrails.
Learning Objective 3:
Learners will be able to provide accessible pedestrian street crossings, parking and transit spots with appropriate crossing times, accessible pedestrian signals, buttons, roundabouts, and more.
Learning Objective 4:
Learners will be able to discuss shared use path guidelines, resolve conflicts between users, separate pathways for pedestrians and bicyclists, and design shared use path intersections.
