In accordance with the American with Disability Act (ADA) ACHD is updating its transition plan to ensure that all pedestrian facilities within the agency right-of-way are safe and accessible for all users.

As part of this effort, ACHD has evaluated over 2,600 miles of sidewalk and 26,600 curb ramps and developed a plan to guide ACHD efforts to address inaccessible facilities.
