Supplementary Information

Introduction

The Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board) is reopening until February 2, 2012, the comment period for the notice entitled “Accessibility Guidelines for Pedestrian Facilities in the Public Right-of-Way,” that appeared in theFederal Registeron July 26, 2011 (76 FR 44664). In that notice, the Access Board proposed guidelines for accessible public rights-of-way and requested comments by November 23, 2011.

On the day the comment period ended, the Access Board received a request from the National Association of Counties, the National League of Cities and the U.S. Conference of Mayors to extend the comment period for at least 90 days to provide local governments with additional time to review and more fully assess the proposed rule. In addition, just prior to the closing of the comment period, the American Council of Engineering Companies requested an unspecified extension of the comment period. Although the Access Board has already provided a 120-day comment period and has held two public hearings on the proposed rule, the Board will provide additional time for the public to submit comments on this proposed rule. The new comment period ends on February 2, 2012.

Executive Director.
