Interactive Guide Helps Local Agencies Develop ADA Transition Plans
The federal American with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires all public agencies to develop a transition plan to identify physical obstacles that limit accessibility and schedule necessary improvements. In response to this, the LRRB funded the development of an ADA resource guide for local agencies. The guide is an interactive PDF, which includes many resources, a model transition plan, and process guidelines for providing accessibility within the public rights of way that local agencies can use to develop their own transition plan. The ADA Transition Plan interactive document is available on the LRRB Web/Software Applications page.
As part of this project, in October 2012, a webinar was hosted to educate agencies on the need for a public rights of way transition plan and demonstrate how to use this resource. The webinar, delivered by SRF’s Jim Gersema, outlines accessibility requirements and explains how agencies can use the interactive PDF to implement their own plans. A recording of the webinar is available by clicking here.
