ADA Sidewalk Transition Plan: See Ballwin's plan to make ADA sidewalks throughout the City!
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) law requires public entities to develop a formal transition plan identifying the steps necessary to meet ADA accessibility requirements for all pedestrian access routes by upgrading all noncompliant features. The Street Transition Plan (PDF below) is attached that was adopted by the Board of Aldermen on February 27, 2017.
The Plan includes when, how, and where curb ramps and sidewalks will be updated to current ADA standards. All curb ramps will be upgraded when a street is overlaid, resurfaced, microsurfaced, or reconstructed. All new sidewalks will be constructed in accordance with the ADA regulations. Uneven sidewalks are to be eliminated in a timely manner.
