The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination and guarantees that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to take part in the mainstream of American life — to enjoy employment opportunities, to purchase goods and services, and to participate in state and local government programs and services. The ADA is an equal opportunity law for people with disabilities.
Clackamas County adopts revised accessibility requirements starting Sept. 7
New requirements in the Public Right-of-Way Accessibility Guidelines (PROWAG) were recently approved by the US Access Board. These requirements exist under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to set national standards for access to sidewalks and streets, crosswalks, curb ramps, pedestrian signals, parking, and other components of public rights-of-way as well as shared use paths for use by bicyclists and pedestrians for transportation and recreation purposes.
ADA Transition Plan
The plan identifies barriers that impede access for people with disabilities to county roadways, and includes the results from a survey of county transportation facilities (more than 4,500 curb ramps, traffic signals and pedestrian signals) and extensive public outreach to learn about accessibility barrier concerns and priorities from people with disabilities.
