Forwarded on behalf of the Missouri Department of Transportation. Please
share with other interested individuals.
The Missouri Department of Transportation has updated its Transition Plan
and posted it to our web page for public review and comment until October
30, 2010. It may be found at -
In addition to reviewing the plan, people are encouraged to take the surveys
located on the same web page. The surveys provide an opportunity for people
to let us know about specific locations that may be important to them and
will help the department prioritize where to spend available funds to
provide services where they are most needed.
To further its commitment to meeting the public's broad and varying
transportation needs, the Missouri Department of Transportation has
developed a transition plan outlining additional steps it will be taking to
comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA requires all
public entities to make their facilities, programs and services accessible
to everyone, including people with disabilities.
Improvements are required when facilities and services are altered. For
example, as roads are resurfaced, curb ramps will be installed or upgraded
to meet ADA requirements. The rest of the existing pedestrian network on the
state's highway system will also be brought up to current standards as
funding allows. In addition, while MoDOT's buildings are ADA accessible,
some modifications are needed and will be made over the next five years.
The Transition Plan is also available at each of MoDOT's ten district
offices. For assistance in reviewing the documents or completing the surveys
please contact our customer service representatives at 1-888-ASK MoDOT
