ADA Sidewalks


Alice asked: I would like to know the minimum width on ADA accessible sidewalk for the state of Florida. Length of sidewalk exceeds 300 feet and leads to a screen door before entering cabin. Should there be passing points at certain lengths in the sidewalk? Should there also be a platform where they could back up or turn to open door?


We discuss the laws related to bicycling. Your question is beyond the scope of the site and should be directed to a source of ADA laws and guidelines. There is one post that discusses ADA sidewalk requirements that is addressed here:

Another source might be a housing contractor familiar with ADA construction requirements.
