The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) is seeking feedback from the public on its proposed transition plan to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The draft plan, which is required as part of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act, is intended to identify system needs and integrate them with ADOT’s planning process, while ensuring that all of its facilities, services, programs and activities are accessible to all individuals.

The transition plan applies to all facilities and right of way owned and maintained by ADOT.

Examples of facilities include office buildings, rest areas, scale sites and maintenance buildings. Examples of right of way features include curb ramps, sidewalks, crosswalks, medians and accessible pedestrian signals.

As part of the plan development process that began in January 2011, ADOT completed a comprehensive statewide inventory of public rights of way, including data collection of more than 22,000 features and 10,000 photos taken.

The draft transition plan is available online at www.azdot.gov/Inside_ADOT/ADA_Transition_Plan.

Comments may be submitted until Sept. 28 online https://www.research.net/s/ADATransitionPlan or by writing ADOT’s ADA Coordinator, Eddie Edison, at the Arizona Department of Transportation, 206 S. 17th Ave., Phoenix, 85007.

ADOT’s Transition Plan will be finalized after public comments are addressed.
