The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in everyday activities. In regard to parking lots, many people assume that an ADA compliant parking lot is having handicapped parking stalls and a small ramp to a sidewalk. For true compliance, the entire route from the street, sidewalk, or parking stall to the building entrance needs to be addressed.
Having ADA compliant parking stalls and pedestrian routes not only protects you from potential legal issues, but it also ensures all people are able to access your property regardless of abilities. Minnesota Roadways has MNDOT certified ADA Construction personnel to help ensure your parking lot is compliant.
