XL Center To Increase Access For Disabled After ADA Complaint

Hartford’s XL Center,  will make renovations to improve access at the arena for persons with disabilities.  The changes are part of a settlement in a federal lawsuit brought under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The Acting U.S. Attorney for Connecticut Deirdre M. Daly says the federal government has reached an agreement  with the XL Center,  its managing companies,  the City of Hartford and the State of Connecticut.  The changes will include adding accessible bathrooms and seating,  improving existing accessible seating,  removing barriers to mobility,  installing additonal safety measures and changing certain Center policies.

Prosecutors say the agreement also includes three years’ monitoring of the XL Center for compliance with the ADA’s prohibition on discrimination in places of public accommodation.
