ADA In Temporary Traffic Control
February 6, 2023 @ 9:00 am - February 8, 2023 @ 12:00 pm EST
After a brief discussion of the relevant legal authorities (ADA, PROWAG, MUTCD), the workshop describes the challenges faced by individuals with disabilities as they travel in the built environment. The basic requirements of the Pedestrian Access Route are reviewed, including width, protruding objects, cross slope, grade, surfaces and curb ramps/detectable warnings. The requirements for the alternate pedestrian access route are reviewed.
Tools to minimize the impacts of construction/maintenance/utility operations on pedestrians will be discussed, namely: 1) phasing of construction, 2) utilizing detailed plans, 3) effective signing/communication and 4) effective barriers/barricades. The session will conclude with an interactive review/discussion of various work zone scenarios and best practices.
Upon completion of the class, participants will be able to: 1) assess a TTC zone set-up for compliance with ADA/MUTCD and 2) design a compliant TTC zone. Log on instructions will be in your registration confirmation. Advanced Road Scholar Credit
