Pierce County completed our Americans with Disabilities Act Public Rights-of-Way Self-Evaluation Report in October 2015. This report details whether existing sidewalk facilities are in compliance with the ADA. We will use the findings in the self-evaluation report and the comments we received to develop the ADA Transition Plan.
Next, we will use the findings of our self-evaluation report to develop our ADA Transition Plan for Public Rights-of-Way. This plan will satisfy Title II of the ADA and 28 CFR 35.150. We will use this plan to prioritize future projects to bring our existing pedestrian facilities into compliance with the ADA. Ultimately, all facilities must be brought into compliance. The plan will focus on existing facilities. It will not address building new facilities in areas that do not currently have them.
