ADA Transition Plan for Olmsted County Public Works Department


What is an ADA Transition Plan?

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), enacted on July 26, 1990, is a civil rights law prohibiting discrimination against individuals on the basis of disability.

As a provider of public transportation services and programs, the Olmsted County Public Works Department must comply with this Act, and has developed a Transition Plan detailing how the County will ensure that all transportation facilities are accessible to all individuals.

Olmsted County must meet these general requirements for individuals with disabilities:

  • Access to all public programs and places
  • Modification of policies that deny equal access
  • Effective communication procedures
  • An ADA Coordinator that coordinates ADA compliance
  • Public notice of ADA requirements
  • Grievance procedure for resolution of complaints

The Public Works Department’s goal is to provide ADA-accessible pedestrian design features as part of the County’s long term transportation capital improvement projects (CIP). These standards and procedures will be kept up to date with nationwide and local best management practices for design of pedestrian facilities within public right-of-way.

The transition plan will assist with the prioritization of ADA accessibility improvements which will be made over a period of time as resources are available.
