Pierce County is developing its Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan for Public Rights-of-Way. This plan will guide us as we bring existing pedestrian facilities—including sidewalks, curb ramps, pedestrian push buttons and driveway entrances—located in the public right-of-way into compliance with the ADA.
Public comment sought
We are seeking public comment on the draft ADA Transition Plan Aug. 1-30.
We reached out to the public through public meetings, stakeholder groups and an online survey to determine which types of defects pose the biggest impact to accessibility, and which locations are most important for the public to be able to reach without barriers to access.
