(Attach Needed Survey Forms to this Summary Sheet.)
At least one accessible route must be provided within the boundary of the site connecting the following elements, where provided on the site, to an accessible building entrance.
public transportation stops
accessible parking spaces
accessible passenger loading zones
public streets and sidewalks
If you are using a plan drawing, you may want to mark each of these routes with a colored pencil.
In addition, at least one accessible route must connect accessible buildings, accessible facilities, accessible elements and accessible spaces that are on the same site.
Accessible routes must connect these elements. If they do exist, then the completed survey form will reveal their complying and non-complying features. The accessible route to an accessible entrance must, to the maximum extent feasible, coincide with the route for the general public.
All objects that protrude from surfaces or posts into circulation paths must comply with the requirements of 4.4; and the sidewalks, ramps and other walking surfaces that make up the accessible routes and spaces must comply with 4.5.
Survey each accessible route with Form 3: Exterior Accessible Routes. You may also need Form 4: Curb Ramps; Form 7: Ramps; Form 8: Stairs*; Form 9: Platform Lifts*; Form 13: Elevators; Form 19: Signage; and Form 21: Detectable Warnings where these elements are part of an accessible route. If drinking fountains, public telephones, or automated teller machines are located on the site, use Form 5: Drinking Fountains; Form 6: Telephones; and Form 22: Automated Teller Machines (ATMs). If a toilet facility or bathing facility is located on a site, use Minimum Requirements Summary Sheet F: Toilet Rooms and Bathrooms.
*Note: The use of stairs and platform lifts to provide access is limited in new construction.
Interior and exterior stairs connecting levels that are not connected by an elevator, ramp, or other accessible means of vertical access must comply with 4.9. In new construction, this condition may occur in facilities subject to the elevator exemption (see 4.1.3(5) Exception 1), or where mezzanines are exempt in restaurants (see 5.4).
Survey stairs with Form 8: Stairs in those buildings and facilities only where the levels are not connected by an elevator, ramp, or other accessible means of vertical access.
In new construction, platform lifts complying with 4.11 and applicable State or local codes may be used in place of an elevator only under the following conditions:
Survey each platform lift with Form 9: Platform Lifts.
