It can also be used to identify barriers in existing buildings. No special training is needed to use this checklist. It can be used by businesses, building owners and managers, State and local governments, design professionals, or concerned citizens. Appendix A of the Department of Transportation’s regulations includes section 10 of ADAAG, which specifies additional provisions for transportation facilities.


Buildings and facilities constructed or altered by, on behalf of, or for the use of State and local governments covered by Title II, Subtitle A of the ADA, other than transportation facilities covered by the Department of Transportation’s regulationare allowed by 28 CFR This requirement applies only if: Full compliance with the new construction requirements is not required where an entity can demonstrate that it is structurally impracticable.

The exception for structural impracticability, a very narrow one, is discussed in 28 CFR Other exceptions for certain temporary structures, specific building areas and features including elevators are discussed in ADAAG 4. Areas that are used only by employees as work areas must be designed and constructed so that individuals with disabilities can approach, enter, and exit the areas as required in ADAAG 4.

The guidelines do not require that any areas used only by employees as work areas be constructed to permit maneuvering within the work area or be constructed or equipped i.

Departures from the ADAAG chwcklist and scoping provisions are permitted where the alternative designs and technologies used will provide substantially equivalent or greater access to and usability of the facility. The specific procedure for applying for such a determination is included in 49 CFR In general, alterations of specific elements or portions of a facility must be completed in compliance with the requirements for new construction. However, full compliance with the alterations requirements is not required where it is technically infeasible.

Accessible Buildings – Additions and Alterations. Additional special provisions and exceptions for alterations for special facility types are found in ADAAG 5, 6, 7, 9 and 10 and on the Technical Requirements Survey Forms for the special facility types.

If an alteration affects or could affect the usability of or access to an area of a facility that contains a “primary function,” an accessible path of travel must be provided to the altered area. In addition, restrooms, telephones, and drinking fountains serving the altered area must also be made accessible to the extent that the cost is not “disproportionate” to the cost of the overall alteration.

Disproportionality is defined in 28 CFR In such a case, checmlist requirements may be used. The alternative requirements are discussed in 28 CFR Accessible Buildings – Historic Preservation.

Barrier Removal in Existing Facilities. Public accommodations covered by Title III of the ADA must remove architectural barriers in existing facilities, including communication barriers that are structural in nature, where such removal is readily achievable.

The ADA generally defines readily achievable as “easily accomplishable and able to be carried out without much difficulty or expense. Measures taken to comply with readily achievable barrier removal must comply with ADAAG unless it would not be readily achievable.


However, no measure shall be taken that poses a significant risk to the health or safety of individuals with disabilities or others. This “grandfather” provision applies only to “key stations” and is discussed in 49 CFR The timeframes for making “key stations” and existing intercity rail stations accessible xhecklist specified in the Department of Transportation’s regulations at 49 CFR ADAAG applies to new construction and alterations of “places of public accommodation and commercial facilities.

This checklist presents the minimum scoping and technical requirements contained in ADAAG for newly constructed facilities in the logical progression of traveling to cheecklist through a building.

The Minimum Requirements Summary Sheets tell you what to survey, such as an accessible route, an entry, or a bathroom.

The Technical Requirements Survey Forms give you the specific features those elements must have. There are 29 survey forms to represent elements on the site and in the building. Many of ADAAG’s general requirements are repeated on different forms because they apply to more than one element. Some survey forms may refer you to others for detailed provisions. In alterations one must first attempt to meet the requirements checllist new construction unless it is technically infeasible or special provisions apply.

The survey process moves through a parallel structure in three steps using the following sheets and forms:.
