Skagit County begins data gathering for ADA Transition Plan

Crews will be out on Skagit County roadways gathering data on pedestrian facilities in the Public Right-of-Way over the next few weeks.

Beginning this week, workers from the Transpo Group will be out on the roadways and streets of unincorporated Skagit County gathering data for Skagit County Public Works' ADA Transition Plan.

An ADA transition plan is one of the federally mandated requirements for state and local governments under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). 

This plan focuses on pedestrian facilities in the Public Right-of-Way including curb ramps, sidewalks, crosswalks, and signal push buttons. Through the development of this plan, Skagit County will inventory existing pedestrian facilities, identify barriers and obstacles which limit accessibility, determine criteria for the prioritization of barrier removal, and set a schedule for the removal of barriers.

So when you see the workers out on the street, remember to Give 'em a brake and slow down, be kind, and pay attention. Thank you!
