**ADA**-compliant

**sidewalk**is 36 inches (3 feet), though

**sidewalks**can be constructed wider than this. If

**sidewalks**are less than 60 inches (5 feet) across, passing spaces must be constructed at set intervals.

The running **slope** should be as flat as possible, up to a **maximum** of 5%. However, **sidewalks** may follow the **slope** of the adjacent roadway if less than 5% is technically infeasible.

One may also ask, what is ADA path of travel? An **accessible path of travel** may consist of walks and sidewalks, curb ramps, and other interior or exterior pedestrian ramps; clear floor **paths** through lobbies, corridors, rooms, and other improved areas; parking access aisles; elevators and lifts; or a combination of these elements.

Subsequently, question is, what is ADA sidewalk slope?

The defined **walkway** will consist of a paved area 4 ft. wide, at minimum, with a cross **slope** of 1% (2.0% maximum) to meet **ADA** standards. It does not have to be marked, but will provide and accessible path between the adjoining **sidewalks** or ramps. The running **slope** will 5% or less, or at the same grade as the roadway.

How do you calculate sidewalk cross slope?

Convert the change of height over the distance into a percentage pitch using the following **equation**: Percentage pitch = (height change / length) x 100. For example, a **slope** 20 feet long that drops by 1 1/2 feet has a percentage pitch of 7.5 percent — (1.5 / 20) x 100 = 7.5.
