Also, in 1995 and again in 2011, H&K preformed total raceway track reconstruction and paving of Pocono Raceway. This sensory inclusive playground project began when Pocono Raceway announced a partnership with Kulture- City, a nonprofit organization based in Birmingham, Ala., with the mission of inspiring the community to join in creat- ing a world where all autistic individuals can be accepted, included and fulfill their potential. KultureCity will assist Pocono Raceway to promote a positive experience for all guests and fans with sensory issues that visit the racetrack throughout the year. For those suffering with autism, one of the major issues is sensitivity to over stimulation and noise. With its new cer- tification, the raceway is better prepared to assist guests with sensory sensitivi- ties in having the most comfortable and accommodating experience possible. Now at Pocono Raceway, individuals with sensory issues will have the fol- lowing available for their use: sensory bags, equipped with noise cancelling headphones, fidget tools, verbal cue cards and weighted lap pads. These will be available to all guests who may feel overwhelmed by the environment. Fans will also have access to two dedicated sensory rooms, one located behind the Grandstand and one located in the Infield, for those who may need a quieter and more secure environment.
