Public Right of Way Accessibility Guidelines

The Public Right of Way Accessibility Guidelines online PDH course is a part of the Building Design category of courses. This course is an overview of the United States Access Board’s Proposed Guidelines for Pedestrian Facilities in the Public Right-of-Way. It covers the mandatory compliance required by regulations issued by federal agencies and includes accessibility standards for the design, construction, and alteration of pedestrian facilities in the public right-of-way.

More than 55 million Americans—18% of our population—have disabilities. Facilities for pedestrian circulation and use located in the public right-of-way must be readily accessible to and usable by pedestrians with disabilities.

The online PDH course is based on United States Access Board publication tilted, “Proposed Accessibility Guidelines for Pedestrian Facilities in the Public Right-of-Way”.

This course is intended to be used by architects, civil and structural engineers and others interested in learning about Public Right of Way Accessibility Guidelines.
