Some examples from successful city programs are included. Part II: Design provides explanations of the details needed in executing the accessibility plans in Part I. Each design chapter provides definitions, Federal and other standards if they exist, illustrations, and an extensive part on Problems and Recommended Solutions. In this part, a checklist of commonly encountered general and specific design problems is provided, and then recommended solutions are listed by each problem.
