Clackamas Board set to act on plan to increase access to roadways for those with disabilities; public hearing set May 4

The Clackamas County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on the proposed ADA Transition Plan for the Public Rights of Way on May 4. The hearing will be part of the Board business meeting, set for 10 a.m. in the Public Services Building, 2051 Kaen Rd., Oregon City.

The plan, developed by the county’s Department of Transportation & Development, outlines how the county will ensure equal access for those with disabilities to all county roadway facilities, in accordance with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990.

The plan, which applies to all curb ramps, traffic signals and pedestrian signals on the county’s road network, is available for public review at http://www.clackamas.us/transportation/ada.html or by contacting Principal Transportation Planner Steve Williams at 503-742-4696 or swilliams@clackamas.us.

The ADA Transition Plan was developed after a detailed survey of the more than 4,500 curb ramps, traffic signals and pedestrian signals on county roadways; a survey of people with disabilities and those who work or live with people with disabilities, and an assessment of how the facilities can be brought into compliance in coming years.

The plan includes information on the number and type of out-of-compliance facilities, what needs to be done to bring the facilities into compliance, a priority system for removing barriers, how to request barrier removals and an appeals process.

For more information, contact Steve Williams at swilliams@clackamas.us or 503-742-4696, or go to the project website at www.clackamas.us/transportation/ada.
