Innovative Technology for ADA Compliance and the Improved Safety of New Construction and Existing Track Crossings

Often times ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliance is not met on existing or new track crossings, or unsafe conditions exist for bicyclist or wheelchairs as roadway are changed. Unfortunately, these non-compliant issues, or hazardous conditions, can be expensive to correct, and the design or function of the areas frequently interrupted to maintain safe and compliant conditions. New innovative materials developed to perform under track crossing conditions, and their performance properties that lead to their success in these conditions, is discussed. Future opportunities to provide improved safety and compliance with evolving standards and roadway still exist with these innovative materials.
