Course Description:

This course will introduce you to the background, content and enforcement of the self-evaluation and transition plan requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as it relates to municipalities. With the ADA’s passage more than 30 years ago, it is critically important that local governments recognize their obligation to upgrade streets, sidewalks, and facilities in the public right-of-way for accessibility. In this course, you will learn how to perform a self-evaluation, how to create a transition plan and why they are important. The course will include a field exercise and group discussion.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of the course, participants will:

  • Understand applicable laws, regulations, policies, guidelines, and standards pertaining to accessibility for persons with disabilities in the public right-of-way.
  • Be familiar with enforcement activities and civil case summaries and how they relate to roadway agencies, ADA self-evaluations, and transition plans.
  • Understand the requirements for performing ADA self-evaluations and transition plans.
  • Identify and experience some of the challenges in the PROW faced by persons with disabilities.

Who Should Attend:

This class is designed for local transportation and public safety professionals who are responsible for the maintenance and construction of pedestrian facilities within the pubic right-of-way and those who may be responsible for the development of ADA Transition Plans.

Local Traffic Authorities, Chief Elected Officials, ADA Coordinators, Public Works Directors, Municipal Engineers, and Planners are encouraged to attend.
