This webinar covers the essentials of accessible design for transportation professionals. This brand new course represents a substantial departure from more traditional ADA training events. Not only significantly shorter, it foregoes complicated legal discussion to focus on plain description of the minimum accessibility requirements for planners, engineers, risk managers and other transportation specialists working in Florida and Puerto Rico.
Attendees will learn which accessibility standards govern planning, design and construction on Florida and Puerto Rico roadways; how to envision and provide pedestrian safety without losing sight of accessibility; how to recognize and correct inaccessibility in design or the as-built environment; and emerging issues impacting accessibility in Florida and Puerto Rico.
This recorded webinar is brought to you by Florida LTAP Center, in partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation’s Local Agency Program, Puerto Rico Highway Transportation Authority (PRHTA), and Florida Division of Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). This webinar was originally presented at the 3rd annual Gulf Coast Safe Streets Summit.
As of August 2022, this training no longer counts towards FDOT No. BT-05-0062 . Please refer to the FDOT – ADA in Design, Construction, and Maintenance recording found here.
