We don’t believe that the work zone described here would meet ADA requirements, which mandate that contractors must provide safe pedestrian access routes (PAR) through construction work zones. If contractors cannot use an existing route, they must provide a temporary pedestrian access route (TPAR).
That said, contractors must use ADA-compliant temporary traffic control devices, or TPAR devices, to provide safe, continuous guidance through the work zone.
We manufacture and market SafetyRail Pedestrian Barricade, an ADA-compliant TPAR device. For more information, please visit www.adabarricade.com, and download our SafetyRail Product & Compliance Guide.none
