E – 1450 ADA Requirements for the Design of Parking Spaces
Intended Audience: civil engineers
PDH UNITS: 2
This course provides detailed information on designing accessible parking spaces that meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act as defined by the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design. Both vans and cars are considered. Dimensions, distribution, location, connections to access routes (to accessible entrances to buildings), and minimum number of spaces are all described. Special requirements for making temporary events (such as street festivals, craft fairs, musical performances, sporting events and home shows) accessible are also presented.
This course is intended primarily for civil engineers involved in the design of parking spaces that meet ADA standards.
This course is based on a compilation of two ADA documents: “Accessible Parking,” [fact sheet] developed by the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center, 2014, and “A Planning Guide for Making Temporary Events Accessible to People with Disabilities,” [booklet] ADA National Network, 2015.
At the successful conclusion of this course, you’ll be able to identify and discuss:
- Minimum number of accessible parking spaces
- Number of van accessible spaces relative to accessible spaces
- Location and distribution of parking spaces
- Aisle width, vertical clearance, and signage for van accessible parking spaces
- Relation of access aisle to accessible route
- Requirements for access route
- Temporary accessible parking spaces
- Dealing with problem curb ramps
