The location of pedestrian signal equipment should be determined in conjunction with the curb ramp and crosswalk layout.
You must evaluate the pedestrian push buttons for accessibility triggers as well as the surrounding area for reach, range and landing requirement, when a project includes any of the following elements:
- Signalized intersections
- Rectangular rapid flashing beacons
- Pedestrian hybrid beacons
Accessible pushbuttons are required when traffic signal work is considered to be an alteration.
Technical guidance documents TR16-01(B) and TR16-02(B) have been incorporated into the Signal Design Manual
. These documents discussed requirements for pedestrian signal equipment and audible pedestrian signals.
