            [1] Juneau controls the third and fourth floors only.

            [2] There are 2 elevator cars; the notations correspond to larger car.

            [3] This toilet room, while not on a CBJ floor, is used by CBJ employees and visitors with disabilities, as the toilet rooms on third and fourth floors are inaccessible but contain adequate directional signage to this toilet room.

            [4] This facility is owned and operated by the State; CBJ runs some recreation programs out of the gymnasium.

            [5] This facility is neither owned nor operated by CBJ.  However, since the nearby Visitors' Center toilet rooms are not accessible, CBJ has an agreement with the Tramway to allow all visitors to use their toilet facilities.  Accordingly, the program access standard applies.

            [6] This room also contains an "alternate" stall designed for ambulatory persons with disabilities.  As the room only has 3 toilet stalls, the ambulatory stall is not required and its elements are not included in this Agreement.
