Pierce County completed our Americans with Disabilities Act Public Rights-of-Way Self-Evaluation Report in
October 2015. This report details whether existing sidewalk facilities
are in compliance with the ADA. We will use the findings in the
self-evaluation report and the comments we received to develop the ADA
Next, we will use the findings of our self-evaluation report to
develop our ADA Transition Plan for Public Rights-of-Way. This plan will
satisfy Title II of the ADA and 28 CFR 35.150.
We will use this plan to prioritize future projects to bring our
existing pedestrian facilities into compliance with the ADA. Ultimately,
all facilities must be brought into compliance. The plan will focus on
existing facilities. It will not address building new facilities in
areas that do not currently have them.
