Course Description

Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as well as Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act have a
fundamental requirement that State and Local governments have completed a self-evaluation of all of
their facilities, services, and programs including the pedestrian network along the public roads and
should have a Transition Plan to address any items identified in need of correction during their self-
evaluation. This workshop will focus on ADA Title II and Section 504 requirements for the public rights-of-way for completing a self-evaluation and developing a transition plan. As a living document, transition
plans will need continuous update to track changes and improvements you have made.

Learning objectives

• Identify applicable laws, regulations, guidelines for accessibility in the public rights-of-way
• How to perform an ADA self-evaluation and what should be included
• Creating a transition plan and who must have one and who should have one
• Updating your transition plan
