This workshop will benefit state and local professionals that plan, design, inspect, and construct ADA-related facilities within the public right-of-way. State and local agency staff, consultants, and contractors are encouraged to attend.

The content of this webinar will be presented jointly by LTAP and DOT staff over a span of 2 sessions on the same day, with each session lasting 2 hours. Attendance at both sessions is recommended since the topics build off of each other. However, attendance is required at both sessions for a certificate to be provided.

Why Attend?

  • Iowa DOT and SUDAS have produced Design Standards and/or Plan Preparation Requirements for Accessible Sidewalks
  • The Design Manuals are updated periodically as changes are needed, and the course covers the current standards
  • Accessibility of public rights-of-way is required by the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Renewed focus on consistent compliance with ADA Curb Ramp Design and Work Zone Accessibility
  • Workshop will update and summarize the Sidewalk, Curb Ramp, and Work Zone Portions of the Iowa DOT Design Manual, and provide information about Plan Preparation Requirements
