The Board issued proposed guidelines on accessible public rights-of-way for public comment in July 2011.  This proposal includes revisions that were made in response to public comments received on earlier drafts of the rule the Board released in 2002 and 2005. 

The guidelines are based on recommendations from an advisory committee formed by the Board.  The Public Rights-of-Way Access Advisory Committee was composed of 33 members representing disability organizations, public works departments, transportation and traffic engineering groups, design professionals and civil engineers, government agencies, and standards-setting bodies. The committee issued its report, "Building a True Community," in January 2001.
