Screen Shot 2016-06-22 at 8.38.07 PMBOCA RATON, FL ( — is investigating “Americans With Disabilities” (ADA) access issues at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport. We would like to hear from readers who have experienced issues moving — or moving in — a wheelchair from the parking garages to the main terminals. We would also like to hear from readers who have had problems using a wheelchair in the airport itself.
The Fort Lauderdale airport has been under construction for several years. The bridges connecting the main parking garage to the terminals are not expected to re-open until 2017 — forcing wheelchair bound passengers to cross the upper and lower driveways which are routinely plagued by speeding cars and inattentive police. Has this created a problem for you or someone you love?
