The Pedestrian Space

Pedestrian Barriers

Pedestrian Barriers for people with mobility impairments include:

-Narrow paths of travel

-Uneven terrain

-Curb ramps that are too high, are missing the curb cut, or they are only on one side of the street

-Sidewalks obstructed by public amenities and utilities

-Poorly maintained pavement.

 

Examine effective practices from the Walk-able Communities Initiative, for example, see:

the Healthy Communities Initiative from 2010, work by the National Center on Health, Physical Activity and Disability (NCHPAD.org), and tools such as The Walk-ability Assessment Tool --
