ADA Compliant Curb Ramps

Gain and understanding of the different styles of curb ramps and how to access their viability.

The major problems with curb ramps are the sidewalk approach, steep slopes, bad flares, too narrow, no detectable warnings, and unalignment with the crosswalks. This topic will give detailed pictures and examples of both poor ramps and good ramps and specific pictures from FHWA and the U.S. access board guidelines. Correct curb ramps that benefit all pedestrians and the drivers who are often blinded by obstructions, thus not seeing the crossing pedestrians. Another great importance is using the training materials in this information for your contractors. Assuming they know how to construct a compliant curb ramp is a major error that all too often results in all involved being losers. This training is designed to help all involved from the agency, designers, contractors and users to be winners. I believe in practical, straightforward explanations, examples, and solutions and am a wheelchair user with a precious service dog named Sufra. This information will help you to walk away with an understanding of what constitutes a safe, ADA compliant curb ramp.
