ARCHITECTURAL AND TRANSPORTATION BARRIERS COMPLIANCE BOARD

36 CFR Part 1191

RIN 3014-AA22


Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) Accessibility Guidelines 
for Buildings and Facilities; Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) 
Accessibility Guidelines; Correction

AGENCY: Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board 
(Access Board) is correcting a document that appeared in the Federal 
Register of September 26, 2013 (78 FR 59476). The document issued a 
final rule that amended the Architectural Barriers Act Accessibility 
Guidelines by adding scoping and technical requirements for camping 
facilities, picnic facilities, viewing areas, trails, and beach access 
routes constructed or altered by or on behalf of federal agencies. The 
document set out the Architectural Barriers Act Accessibility 
Guidelines in their entirety, as amended by the final rule, and also 
set out the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines in 
their entirety as word searchable text since both sets of guidelines 
were previously issued as ``camera ready'' images that could not be 
amended.

DATES: Effective November 25, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: James Raggio, Access Board, 1331 F 
Street NW., Suite 1000, Washington, DC 20004-1111. Telephone: (202) 
272-0040 (voice) or (202) 272-0062 (TTY). Email address: board.gov">raggio@access-board.gov.
