More than 9 out of 10 parking stalls, that we observe are noncompliant at some level; so, if you feel in the dark, you are not alone.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has requirements regarding a property’s exterior parking spaces and the path from the parking stall all the way to the entry threshold.
The individual components that make up this accessible path include;
- the parking stalls
- access isles
- accessible paths
- and more
Each of these components need to be taken seriously during the design phase as they are all individually reviewed for compliance according to the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design. If one of these items are off then there is no accessible route.
But wait… there’s more…
There are other components that could be present that need to be reviewed based on the number of entrances, use of the building, and total vertical height gained in the accessible path. Additionally, the height clearances, historical considerations, and street access are subject to review and consideration.
