Accessibility Guidelines for Pedestrian Facilities in the Public Right-of-Way; Shared Use Paths

Docket ID: ATBCB-2013-0002
Agency: Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (ATBCB)
We, the Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board), issued an advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) announcing our intent to develop accessibility guidelines for shared used paths. Shared use paths are multi-use paths designed primarily for use by bicyclists and pedestrians, including pedestrians with disabilities, for transportation and recreation purposes. Shared use paths are physically separated from motor vehicle traffic by an open space or barrier, and are either within the highway right-of-way or within an independent right-of-way.
