Ensuring ADA Compliant Parking Lots | Asphalt Paving Company, Wichita, Kansas

It is important that new parking lots are compliant with Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to promote safety and to avoid costly fines, potential lawsuits and downtime. Encore Pavement, a full-service concrete and asphalt paving company, headquartered in Wichita, Kansas, has put together some helpful related information for property managers and business owners to review.

  • What Does the ADA Require?

    Title III of the ADA prohibits discrimination on the basis of disabilities in places of public accommodations, commercial facilities and some private entities. Newly constructed or altered parking lots, and some already existing parking lots, must meet regulations related to:

    • The number of accessible parking spaces.
    • The design of access aisles and routes to entrances.
    • The construction of ramps and sloped areas at accessible entrances.
    • Detectable warnings on pathways.
    • Signs and accessory markings to designate accessible areas.

    If you would like more detailed information, please review the ADA Standards for Accessible Design on the ADA website.

    “If you have blueprints or plans available, we will review them against the actual site,” said Andy Waller, partner and CEO of Encore Pavement. “Next, we will review the ADA requirements for your area, which will help determine the design of the parking lot, including parking spaces, aisles, routes, ramps, entrances, pathways, signs, and markings.”
