Access Board webinar on accessible sidewalks and street crossings
The United States Access Board is developing new guidelines for public rights-of-way (PROWAG) that will address various issues, including access for blind pedestrians at street crossings, wheelchair access to on-street parking, and various constraints posed by space limitations, roadway design practices, slope, and terrain.
As part of the Access Board’s monthly series AccessibilityOnline, the webinar “Accessible Sidewalks and Street Crossings” will be held on Thursday, June 3 from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. CDT.
This webinar will present and describe the most recent draft of PROWAG and provide an update on the status of this rulemaking. Presenters include Lois Thibault and Scott J. Windley. The following professional development certificates will be available:
- Certificate of Attendance (Free)
