Reminder: City’s draft ADA transition plan available for comment


The City of Edmonds has prepared an updated American with Disabilities (ADA) Transition Plan to address physical obstacles within the city’s right-of-way that limit accessibility to individuals with disabilities.

The draft document is available for review by clicking on the link here.

The plan focuses on pedestrian access routes and include sidewalks, curb ramps, street crossings, driveway crossings, rail crossings, hazards, and pedestrian-activated signal systems. The document also covers ADA legal requirements related to these type of facilities within the city’s right of way.

The findings and recommendations to implement improvements are included in the draft plan, which is scheduled for completion in November.

A paper copy of the document is available for review on site at City Hall (121 5th Ave. N)., Frances Anderson Center (700 Main Street), and Senior Center (220 Railroad Ave.).

Provide comments to Bertrand Hauss, Transportation Engineer, via email at [email protected] or by calling 425-771-0220. The deadline is Sept. 27, 2017.
