Draft ADA Transition Plan for Public Works (2012)
The Draft ADA Transition Plan for Public Works was developed in 2012. The plan can be accessed here. Public Works began an update to the Draft ADA Transition Plan for Public Works in 2017.
Public Works’ ADA Transition Plan Update
Through a combination of the Public Works' ADA Transition Plan Update and the Minneapolis Transportation Action Plan, the City plans to address a variety of issues that impact the accessibility of city streets and sidewalks. In particular, through these two planning processes, Public Works intends to lay out a series of priorities, policies and approaches to address barriers in the public right of way, including sidewalk gaps, complex intersections and obstacles inhibiting pedestrian movement, non-compliant sidewalks and/or driveways, and curb ramp reconstructions.
The Public Works’ ADA Transition Plan update will follow three steps:
- Self-Evaluation: The self-evaluation includes assessing policies, procedures, and physical infrastructure within the public right of way.
- Identify Areas for Improvement: The results of the self-evaluation are compared against ADA standards. Items that need improvement are identified.
- Implementation Plan: A plan of action to implement improvements is documented.
The Draft ADA Transition Plan will be a culmination of these three steps.
Self-Evaluation and Identifying Areas for Improvement: Late 2017 - Mid 2019
Develop an Implementation Plan: Late 2018 - Mid 2019
Draft ADA Transition Plan available for public comment and review: Late 2019
Schedule is subject to change.
The Draft ADA Transition Plan will be posted online and distributed through project stakeholders and the project contact list. Please sign up below to receive a notification that the Draft Plan is available.
Comments received will be used to develop a revised ADA Transition Plan.
ADA Transition Plan Survey
A survey was available between May and August 2018 to inform the development of the Self-Evaluation and guide the prioritization of removing barriers in the public right of way.
