Pedestrian Signals and the ADA: Changes under PROWAG
Duration : 60 minutes
Decades in the making, the US Access Board recently completed its rule-making and issued the final rule for the Public Rights-of-Way Accessibility Guidelines (PROWAG). They will take effect September 7 and will become enforceable once they are adopted by the US Department of Justice (DOJ) and the US Department of Transportation (DOT).
This means that for the first time in history, there will be official accessibility standards designed expressly for pedestrian facilities, including crosswalks, signals and push buttons.
To help you make sense of the new standards (and implement them in your practice/community), we hosted a free public webinar that covered:
- What PROWAG is, what it covers, and when it takes effect
- How it differs from other/previous requirements (ADAAG/MUTCD)
- Where PROWAG requires accessible signals and push buttons
- What features those signals and buttons are required to have
