ADA Parking Lot Compliance
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) affects every property owner. Since July 1990, businesses must now have an ADA parking lot, which designates the proper number of clearly identified handicapped-accessible parking stalls and requires van parking spaces regardless of company size. Additionally, ramps, accessible parking and designated walkways must also meet specific slope and size requirements in order to be considered compliant.
A newly constructed parking lot must typically be striped to ADA standards and proper signage implemented before an operating permit is issued; this is true of both commercial and large residential properties. In addition, a minimum number of parking spaces must be present per 1,000 square feet of a utilized facility.
Given the proper scope, CI can ensure your parking lot, ramps and walkways meet the current ADA compliance requirements. With our ADA parking lot compliance services, we provide installation of proper ADA parking signs, striping, and concrete ramps and handrails, ensuring an excellent experience for your customers, clients, and employees.
CI Pavement will ensure you have the required number of parking spaces with correct ADA parking lot striping to accommodate all of your clients. According to ADA regulations, the minimum number of required accessible parking spaces depends on the total number of parking spaces provided in the parking facility. If there are multiple parking facilities or parking lots on your property, the minimum number of accessible spaces is determined separately by the number of parking spaces in each parking facility.
