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 3, you will be able to:
- 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.
- Apply appropriate PROWAG and/or ADA standards for various right-of-way design elements.
- Guide development of technical guidelines for municipal adoption that comply with ADA standards.
- 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.
- Identify necessary changes and associated costs (general cost estimates) to comply with ADA standards.
- 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.
- 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.
