[July 28, 2014]  SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) is seeking input on its draft 2014 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan to ensure the department meets the needs of individuals with disabilities.

The goals of the proposed plan are to continue to improve accessibility, provide seamless connections to other modes of transportation, offer additional safe and comfortable pedestrian facilities, and collaborate with transportation partners to find innovative ways to advance the vision for even better accessibility statewide.

“We hope the public takes the opportunity to provide feedback on such an important issue,” said Acting Transportation Secretary Erica Borggren. “This plan will help us build on our past successes to ensure our transportation system is fully accessible for everyone.”
In 1992, IDOT prepared and adopted an ADA Transition Plan to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The purpose of the 2014 Transition Plan is to update the 1992 plan by re-evaluating agency policies, programs, and facilities to ensure compliance with the latest accessibility guidelines.
