Applying the Americans with Disabilities Act in Work Zones: A Practioner Guide - F40 ADAWZ
(Free Publication) - A basic requirement of work zone traffic control, as provided in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), is that the needs of pedestrians, including those with disabilities, must be addressed in temporary traffic control plans (TCPs) in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), Title II, Paragraph 35.130. The ADA is a Federal law that requires that pedestrians with physical and/or mental disabilities be accommodated not only in completed, publicly accessible facilities, but also during times of construction or improvement. All pedestrians, including the disabled, should be provided with safe, accessible, and reasonably convenient paths that replicate as nearly as practical the most desirable characteristics of the existing pedestrian circulation facilities when temporary traffic control (TTC) zones are planned and set up. This document uses a variety of sources to provide State and local transportation agencies with strategies and technical guidance on how to design TCPs that address pedestrian access during construction, including the needs of those with disabilities. This document: -Describes the challenges faced by disabled pedestrians; -Outlines considerations to planning and designing strategies to manage pedestrians in a work zone -Provides examples to further assist practitioners in setting up work zones and making them safe for all pedestrians.
