On April 20 at 2:00 pm ET, the U.S. Access Board is hosting part one of a webinar series on “Promoting Independence and Access through Responsible Design.” Melissa Anderson, PE, formerly a Transportation Engineer for the U.S. Access Board, will present a four-part webinar series designed to improve the understanding of why and how to provide accessible pedestrian facilities in the public right of way. Part one will begin with a discussion of legal obligations, how the standards and guidelines apply and then move through the components of pedestrian access and how to actually achieve access.

The Access Board is also hosting a webinar on May 2 at 2:30 pm ET. This session will cover access to sales and services counters and review applicable requirements in the Americans with Disabilities Act and Architectural Barriers Act Standards. Presenters will illustrate access to various types of counters, including sales counters, check-in counters, and food service counters. They will also address teller and service windows, check-out aisles, self-service shelves, and food and beverage dispensers.
