ADA self-evaluation and design standards

ADA self-evaluation and design standards

This module provides comprehensive and hands-on training about Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) self-evaluations, ADA standards, and the proposed Public Right-of Way Accessibility Guidelines (PROWAG).

This module is meant for municipal staff, public works staff, ADA coordinators, and anyone seeking to learn more about developing a self-evaluation with a focus on the public right-of-way.

After Module 2, you will be able to:

  1. Name appropriate design standards including PROWAG, ADA standards, and Section 41-6 of the Illinois Department of Transportation Bureau of Local Roads and Streets Manual.
  2. Apply appropriate PROWAG and/or ADA standards for various right-of-way design elements.
  3. Guide development of technical guidelines for municipal adoption that comply with ADA standards.
  4. Understand how to prioritize, inventory, measure, and analyze public right-of-way components and their compliance status using various methods, technologies, and approaches to collecting data.
  5. Identify necessary changes and associated costs (general cost estimates) to comply with ADA standards.
  6. Employ a successful public outreach strategy to gather community input during the self-evaluation process, particularly from the disability community, as well as residents in under-resourced, BIPOC, and low-income communities — and understand differing public involvement needs for various phases of the planning process.
  7. Know the general time and cost commitments for completing a comprehensive ADA self-evaluation and options for deployment, including use and mobilization of staff, interns, volunteers, and/or consultants.
