Americans with Disabilities Act and Pedestrian Accommodations

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan outlines our strategy to provide pedestrian access in the County right-of-way for people of all abilities.

We are improving access to Washington County roads with an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan.

An ADA Transition Plan for access in the public right-of-way identifies needed improvements for access, the funding and schedule to address those needs, and establishes a process for the public to request accommodation.

We are creating this plan in phases:

  • Phase I: Curb Ramps
  • Phase II: Pedestrian push buttons
  • Phase III: Sidewalks
  • Phase IV: Parks and park facilities

Each phase includes research about the issue, a plan to remediate the issues, and implementation of of the plan. We will have opportunities for public comment on each phase.


Washington County has implemented Policy 211 to address access for people with disabilities.

(Proposed) Public Rights-of-Way Accessibility Guidelines

The U.S. Access Board develops guidelines under the ADA and the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) that will address access to sidewalks and streets, crosswalks, curb ramps, pedestrian signals, on-street parking, and other components of public rights-of-way.
