SANTA FE ― The New Mexico Department of Transportation is seeking input on the draft of the 2017 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan.
The draft plan is intended to identify system needs and integrate them with NMDOT’s planning process, while ensuring that all of its facilities, services, programs and activities are accessible to all individuals. It is required as part of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
This transition plan focuses on all right-of-ways owned and maintained by NMDOT. Examples of right-of-way features include curb ramps, sidewalks, crosswalks, medians and accessible pedestrian signals.
“We hope the public takes this opportunity to provide feedback on such an important issue. It is our mission to provide a safe and efficient transportation system for the traveling public. This plan will help us to build on our past successes to ensure New Mexico’s transportation system is fully accessible for everyone,” NMDOT Cabinet Secretary Tom Church said.
Comments may be submitted through Nov. 30 to NMDOT.ADACoordinator@state.nm.us or write NMDOT’s ADA Coordinator, Linda Ramos, at the New Mexico Department of Transportation, 1570 Pacheco Street, Suite A10, Santa Fe, NM 87505.
