Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan
for Public Rights-Of-Way (ROW) Overview
In an effort to make Marion County’s pedestrian facilities within the public Right-Of-Way (ROW) accessible, the County is engaged in developing an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan for Public Rights-Of-Way (ROW). The Plan will demonstrate Marion County’s commitment to providing equal access to sidewalks, curb ramps, signalized intersections and related services within the public ROW for citizens with disabilities. The plan will focus on the County’s existing inventory, and prioritize future ROW improvements to facilities accessible by the public.
ADA Transition Plan for Public Rights-of-Way
This plan is intended to:
- Evaluate ROW services, policies, and practices;
- Identify modifications needed to services, policies, and practices;
- Identify physical barriers that limit the accessibility of ROW facilities for individuals with disabilities;
- Describe the methods to be used to make the facilities accessible;
- Provide a prioritization for making modifications to improve access on ROW facilities;
- Identify the public officials responsible for implementation of the Transition Plan; and
- Involve people with disabilities, individuals and groups that encounter barriers, and the public in the preparation of the Plan.
