Hennepin County's Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) "Program Access and Transition Plan for County Rights of Way" is scheduled for completion this year. The plan involves a review of current policies, practices, and infrastructure, and outlines how the county will continue to provide accessibility on sidewalks, curb ramps, crosswalks, multi-use trails, and at traffic signals.
Residents and business owners are invited to attend informational open houses about the plan. The purpose of the open houses is to introduce the Transition Plan to the public, discuss the Transportation Department's work to date, and begin conversations about moving forward and rolling out the plan.
