Ensuring safe and independent travel for people with and without disabilities in the event of snow can be difficult. A national standard for effective snow removal for pedestrians does not currently exist. Watch this webinar to look at snow removal issues and explore ideas for possible solutions to be considered at the local level. Presenters discussed how snow affects the independent travel of people with disabilities as well as effective practices in snow removal for public transportation as well as for the broader community with a Complete Streets perspective.
