And how about the ADA? As noted earlier, the current final rule, ADAAG (2010), was written for building sites, rather than public rights-of-way, and does not mention APS. A 2006 memo from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) stated that Draft PROWAG “can be considered the state of the practice that could be followed for areas not fully addressed by the present ADAAG standards”. Clearly, APS are not “fully addressed by present ADAAG standards”. What Draft PROWAG says is that APS shall be installed at all newly constructed or reconstructed intersections where visual pedestrian signals are installed.
