U.S. Access Board: Comments on the Access Board’s Guidelines for Shared Use Paths Due May 14

Submit A Comment | View Comments

In February, the Access Board released for public comment proposed accessibility guidelines for shared use paths which are used by pedestrians, bicyclists, and others for transportation or recreation. The Board's proposal would add provisions for shared use paths to guidelines it is developing for public rights-of-way that were previously made available for comment.

Comments on the supplemental guidelines for shared use paths are due May 14. Those received after this date will be considered to the extent feasible. Comments can be submitted or viewed through the regulations.gov website. For further information, visit the Board’s website.
