NJLTAP – Design of ADA Curb Ramps and Pedestrian Access Routes (Middlesex)
- April 20
- 8:30 am–3:30 pm
This is an asynchronous workshop with portions prerecorded as well as live in-person class content. Participants are required to view a prerequisite video prior to the live workshop. The link to the prerequisite video will be included with your confirmation email when you register.
This training 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. This training was developed to provide information and good 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 workshop will include a brief overview of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) requirements, NJDOT requirements, AASHTO “Green Book” requirements, 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.
