If new ADA sidewalk is being installed and the ADA route crosses an existing street are there any exemptions for the maximum 2% cross slope requirement if the existing road is steep (cross slope of pedestrian path over road is greater than 2%)? Shifting the crosswalk anywhere "up" or farther "down" the street will not solve the cross slope problem over the road. Is reconstruction of the existing road required? Is there a difference if its a public or private road?
