Is there a ADA requirement for a walkway from Handicap parking

Is there a ADA requirement for a walkway from Handicap parking to a curb?
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.

In GA and under the Federal ADA guidelines there is only a requirement for curb ramps at pedestrian crossings. See: 28 C.F.R. §§ 35.150(d)(2), 35.151(2 (e). There are no specific requirements that a special walkway must be built from the handicapped parking spaces to the curb under the CFR that governs ADA requirements.

Is there any ADA law stating that a painted walkway with hash lines must be in place from the handicap area to the handicap ramp?

Thank you for your follow up question.

No, the CFR does not provide for the painted walkway from the area to the ramp I am afraid. I see that done on some private property, but not all and there is no basis for it in the ADA guidelines.
