if I'm at -1.8% in both my x and y...my diagnol corner cross slope exceeds the ADA  2%...is this in violation of ADA or is it 2% in the x and y?

I've found that this is really up to interpretation. You must consider where one can travel within the handicap designated area. For example, you wouldn't travel from one end of a ADA designated parking area to the other at a diagonal. With that said, if the field inspector is of the belief that it is indeed ALL directions then it would be best to grade the area as such to protect from and liability issues that may arise. Their is nothing "beau" about beauracracy. This subject came up in my office just this morning.

Make no mistake, the code is clear in this realm.

 

No greater than 2% in any direction throughout the handicap parking spaces.
