Provide handrails that are between 1 inches and 1 inches in diameter, exactly 1-1/2 inches from the side wall, with a continuous gripping surface along both sides of the ramp, extending at least 12 inches beyond the top and bottom of the ramp parallel with the ground surface. Ensure that handrails are mounted between 34 inches and 38 inches above the ramp surface, with ends rounded or returned smoothly to the floor, wall, or post, and that they do not rotate within their fittings. Ensure that the ramp and approaches are designed so that water will not accumulate on walking surfaces. Standards §§ 4.1.2(1), 4.1.2(2), 4.3.8, 4.8.

 

d. L-1 West Ramp: For portions of the ramp, the slope exceeds the maximum allowable slope of 1:12 and the handrail extensions at the top and bottom of the ramp are inadequate. Provide a ramp that is at least 36 inches wide with a slope not exceeding 1:12 and a cross slope not exceeding 1:50; with level landings at least as wide as the ramp and 60 inches long at the top and bottom of the ramp; and with edge protection at least 2 inches high at the drop off sides.

18. By December 31, 2008, the City will complete the following modifications to the OmahaPark Seven, located at 100 N. 15th Street:

 

a. Although 14 of the 700 parking spaces in this garage are designated as reserved for persons with disabilities, many designated spaces are narrower than 96 inches and all of the vertical signs designating accessible spaces are easily obstructed by parked vehicles. On the shortest accessible route(s), provide 2 van accessible spaces and 12 standard spaces designated as reserved for people with disabilities. Ensure that standard accessible spaces are a minimum of 96 inches wide and served by access aisles at least 60 inches wide. Ensure that van accessible spaces are a minimum of 96 inches wide and served by access aisles at least 96 inches wide. At all spaces designated as reserved for persons with disabilities, provide vertical signs with the International Symbol of Accessibility located such that they cannot be obstructed by parked vehicles. At van accessible spaces, provide an additional "Van-Accessible" sign located below the International Symbol of Accessibility. Ensure that all spaces and access aisles for persons with disabilities are flat and level, with slopes and cross-slopes not exceeding 1:50 in all directions, and that their surfaces are firm, stable, and slip-resistant. Standards §§ 4.1.2(5), 4.6, 4.30.7(1).

 

b. The fire extinguishers throughout the facility are mounted at 67 inches above the finished floor. Provide fire extinguishers mounted at a maximum height above the finished floor of 48 inches for a forward approach or 54 inches for a side approach and that is accompanied by clear floor space of 30 by 48 inches that allows a forward or parallel approach by a person using a wheelchair. Standards §§ 4.1.3(13), 4.27.2, 4.27.3, 4.2.4, 4.2.5, 4.2.6, Fig. 4.

 

c. On level L-8, the right-hand parking space designated for persons with disabilities encroaches upon the accessible route, so that if a car is parked in the space, there is not enough maneuvering clearance to get to the door to the elevator lobby. Provide an accessible route at this location with a minimum clear width of 36 inches, except at doors, where the width may decrease to 32 inches. Standards §§ 4.1.3(1), 4.3.3, 4.13.5.

 

d. East Elevator at South Tower: The audio component of the emergency communication system had too much interference and the recipient's instructions could not be understood; there was no way to determine if the emergency communications worked without voice communication. Provide a two-way communication system such that it does not require voice communication, the highest operable part is a maximum of 48 inches above the finished floor of the car, and it is identified by a raised symbol and lettering located adjacent to the device. If the system uses a handset, ensure that the length of the cord from the panel to the handset is at least 29 inches. If the system is located in a closed compartment, ensure that the compartment door hardware operates without tight grasping, pinching or twisting of the wrist. Standards §§ 4.1.3(5), 4.10.14.

 

e. Ramp at East Exit Level 1: The slope of the ramp exceeds the maximum allowable slope of 1:12, there are no handrails, and there is no level landing at the bottom of the ramp at the door. Provide a ramp that is at least 36 inches wide with a slope not exceeding 1:12 and a cross slope not exceeding 1:50; with level landings at least as wide as the ramp and 60 inches long at the top and bottom of the ramp; and with edge protection at least 2 inches high at the drop off sides. Provide handrails that are between 1 inches and 1 inches in diameter with a continuous gripping surface along both sides of the ramp, extending at least 12 inches beyond the top and bottom of the ramp parallel with the ground surface. Ensure that handrails are mounted between 34 inches and 38 inches above the ramp surface, with ends rounded or returned smoothly to the floor, wall, or post, and that they do not rotate within their fittings. Ensure that the ramp and approaches are designed so that water will not accumulate on walking surfaces. Standards §§ 4.1.2(1), 4.1.2(2), 4.3.8, 4.8.

 

19. By December 31, 2008, the City will complete the following modifications to the OmahaPark Eight, located at 1215 Capital Entrance:

 

a. Although 26 of the 1270 parking spaces in this garage are designated as reserved for persons with disabilities, many designated spaces are narrower than 96 inches and all of the vertical signs designating accessible spaces are easily obstructed by parked vehicles. On the shortest accessible route(s), provide 3 van accessible spaces and 19 standard spaces designated as reserved for people with disabilities. Ensure that standard accessible spaces are a minimum of 96 inches wide and served by access aisles at least 60 inches wide. Ensure that van accessible spaces are a minimum of 96 inches wide and served by access aisles at least 96 inches wide. At all spaces designated as reserved for persons with disabilities, provide vertical signs with the International Symbol of Accessibility located such that they cannot be obstructed by parked vehicles. At van accessible spaces, provide an additional "Van-Accessible" sign located below the International Symbol of Accessibility. Ensure that all spaces and access aisles for persons with disabilities are flat and level, with slopes and cross-slopes not exceeding 1:50 in all directions, and that their surfaces are firm, stable, and slip-resistant. Standards §§ 4.1.2(5), 4.6, 4.30.7(1).

 

b. Vehicles parked in spaces 449, 539, or 629 will block the accessible routes between the parking spaces reserved for persons with disabilities and the doors to the elevator vestibules. At each of these locations, provide at least one accessible route that has a minimum clear width of 36 inches. Standards §§ 4.1.3(1), 4.3, 4.5, Fig. 7.

 

c. Elevators: East and West. For each: The emergency communication systems do not work without voice communication, as a test call revealed that the operator did not know what to do in response to a silent call. Provide a two-way communication system such that it does not require voice communication, the highest operable part is a maximum of 48 inches above the finished floor of the car, and it is identified by a raised symbol and lettering located adjacent to the device. If the system uses a handset, ensure that the length of the cord from the panel to the handset is at least 29 inches. If the system is located in a closed compartment, ensure that the compartment door hardware operates without tight grasping, pinching or twisting of the wrist. Standards §§ 4.1.3(5), 4.10.14.

 

 

20. By December 31, 2014, the City will complete the following modifications to the Harry and Gail Koch Family Tennis Center, located at 12440 West Maple Road:

 

a. Parking - Lower: Although 130 parking spaces are provided in both lots, only one space is reserved for persons with disabilities and the paved surface is covered with loose dirt and gravel, so the surface is not firm, stable, and slip-resistant. On the shortest accessible route to the accessible entrance, provide 1 van accessible space and 4 standard spaces designated as reserved for people with disabilities. Ensure that standard accessible spaces are a minimum of 96 inches wide and served by access aisles at least 60 inches wide. Ensure that van accessible spaces are a minimum of 96 inches wide and served by access aisles at least 96 inches wide. At all spaces designated as reserved for persons with disabilities, provide vertical signs with the International Symbol of Accessibility located such that they cannot be obstructed by parked vehicles. At van accessible spaces, provide an additional "Van-Accessible" sign located below the International Symbol of Accessibility. Ensure that all spaces and access aisles for persons with disabilities are flat and level, with slopes and cross-slopes not exceeding 1:50 in all directions, and that their surfaces are firm, stable, and slip-resistant. Standards §§ 4.1.2(5), 4.6, 4.30.7(1).

 

b. Telephones: Although a telephone is provided for public use, it is not hearing aid compatible. Provide an accessible telephone with a clear floor space of at least 30 inches by 48 inches that allows either a forward or parallel approach by a person using a wheelchair such that bases, enclosures, and fixed seats do not impede approaches to the telephone; with the highest operable part of the telephone mounted no more than 48 inches above the floor for a front approach or no more than 54 inches above the floor for a side approach; that is hearing aid compatible and has a volume control mechanism; with telephone books, if provided, located between 15 and 48 inches above the finished floor for a front approach or between 9 and 54 inches above the finished floor for a side approach; with a cord of at least 29 inches long from the telephone to the handset; and with signage that complies with the Standards. Make available a TTY and provide signage indicating its availability. Standards §§ 4.1.3(17), 4.31, 4.30.7(2).

 

c. Men's and Women's Locker Rooms: For each:

 

i. The benches are too narrow. Provide a 24 inch by 48 inch bench fixed to the wall along the bench's longer dimension. Ensure that the bench has sufficient structural strength and is mounted with its surface between 17 inches and 19 inches above the finished floor. Provide clear floor space alongside the bench to allow a person using a wheelchair to make a parallel transfer onto the bench. Standards §§ 4.1.3(21), 4.35.4, 4.26.3.

 

ii. Men's Only: No accessible coat hook has been provided. Provide a coat hook at a maximum height above the finished floor of 48 inches for a forward approach or 54 inches for a side approach and that is accompanied by clear floor space of 30 by 48 inches that allows a forward or parallel approach by a person using a wheelchair. Standards §§ 4.1.3(12)(a), 4.25.2, 4.25.3, 4.2.4, 4.2.5, 4.2.6.
