In June of 2014, NYSDOT and FHWA held an ADA webinar, which discussed municipal requirements under the Americans with Disabilities Act, specifically related to sidewalks. A number of CDTC's Planning Committee representatives requested formation of an ADA Working Group to work toward completion of municipal Transition Plans. Some goals of the Working Group are to serve as a clearinghouse of useful information, to encourage a consistent approach among the region's munipalities, to help ensure transition plans are done correctly, and to assist with methods of data collection for pedestrian facility inventories.
For additional resources, including materials from the September 2016 FHWA Transition Plan Training for municipalities, see the ADA Resources page.
