Access Board chartered PROWAAC in 1999 to recommend modifications to ADAAG's accessibility provisions related to sidewalks and streets.
Limiting application of the detectable warnings to 24 inches, instead of covering the full ramp and in a square array, was in consideration of minimizing discomfort for individuals who use wheelchairs for travel in the community (Bentzen et al., 2000; PROWAAC, 2001).
Access Board publishes draft guidelines for public rights-of-way that include changes to detectable warning requirements recommended by PROWAAC.
The next PROWAAC meeting will be held in Austin, Tex., on February 10-11.
