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 Rice County Highway Department must comply with this Act, and has developed a Transition Plan detailing how the County will ensure that all facilities are accessible to all individuals.
Rice 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 Highway Department’s goal is to provide ADA-accessible pedestrian design features as part of the County’s capital improvement projects (CIP). These standards and procedures will be kept up to date with nationwide and local best management practices.
