Pedestrian Access Route Barricade Creates ADA-Friendly Work Zones
| July 27, 2011 |
Tacoma, WA – Davidson Traffic Control Products announces the introduction of their new Pedestrian Access Route (PAR) barricade at the upcoming US DOT Federal Highway Administration’s ADA Demonstration in Sacramento, California June 8th, 2011.
Urban construction zones can be hazardous to people with visual or mobility impairments if the worksite is not adequately protected. People who use canes may not detect warning tape or a series of widely spaced traffic cones. Such practices are not sufficient to enable a blind pedestrian to anticipate a hazard, nor do they provide an edge along which to travel around an obstruction. The PAR barricade is designed to guide individuals with visual and mobility impairments around dangers in construction sites like drop-offs and trenches by providing a clearly defined & safe pathway through the work zone.
