ADA Compliance Planning

Compliance Planning consists of the current SHA initiatives to ensure all public rights-of-way (PROW) become compliant. The following elements are part of the Compliance Planning process.

  • ADA Compliance Planning
    • Self Evaluation Plan : The purpose of this Self-Evaluation is to produce a comprehensive survey of existing access in public rights-of-way (PROW) facilities. SHA's self-evaluation consists of two parts: a field inventory of existing conditions based on a statewide checklist and local public meetings to create a dialog about the survey results. The results of the self-evaluation and public meetings will be used to identify and prioritize improvements that will be implemented through the Transition Plan.
    • Public Involvement : Public involvement is a critical element when providing people with disabilities the accommodations, locations, and infrastructure design that are most meaningful.  It also helps SHA determine how to prioritize projects, to determine if anything has been overlooked or evaluate if field level efforts meet public needs.  Public involvement takes many forms.  It is required as a part of the self-evaluation and transition plan.  On-going dialogue with people with disabilities, both individually and in groups, works to help SHA ensure that its efforts meet the needs of people with disabilities.

    • Transition Plan : The purpose of the Transition Plan is to aid in taking identified deficiencies and translating them into compliant elements needed to achieve accessibility to public right of way (PROW). It is essentially a schedule giving priority to certain types of facilities and allowing the State to program improvements in a cost-effective manner. Public Meetings are conducted to allow for the public to provide input for areas of concern or importance.
