Accessible Routes or Path of Travel in new and existing projects are essential aspects of Accessible design. If you can not even get to an area, no matter how accessible that portion is, it will still not be accessible…at least until we invent teleportation. Not only is the route or path required to be accessible but there are many elements that are included within the definition which also are required to be accessible. We will look at a broad view of these elements, as one progresses from the street, thru the site, and into the buildings, touching on their various accessibility requirements.
