Start Preamble

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.
