Nashville Codes - Sidewalk Width Minimum 32" from Edge to Obstruction

Rick Kirkpatrick, of Nashville Public Works, graciously fielded multiple questions about sidewalks in Nashville today.  

Nashville does not have a current 'rule' on sidewalk widths but they strive to follow the ADA guidelines.

According to the American Disability Act (ADA) guidelines, from the edge of the sidewalk to obstruction there should be a MINIMUM of 32".  


Preference for sidewalks is 5' with a green buffer zone…
