Accessibility on the Williamsburg Bridge

See this article from the NY Daily News, which begins:

It's not just bicyclists who are calling on the city to remove allegedly dangerous expansion joint covers on the Williamsburg Bridge bike and pedestrian path.

Now advocates for the disabled have joined the fray - charging the pathway violates federal accessibility guidelines for people with disabilities.

"These expansion joint covers clearly violate the Americans with Disabilities Act," blasted James Weisman, head attorney for the United Spinal Association, the leading disability rights group in the city.
