The Department of Transportation and Highways (DoTH) wants to hear from you on how to make Cook County more accessible to people with disabilities!
Cook County published a new ADA Transition Plan to guide accessible pedestrian travel development, and maintain and modernize existing facilities within the public right-of-way.
The ADA Transition Plan is now open for public review and comment on how pedestrian facilities can better serve all citizens. The plan evaluates DoTH policies, programs, and facilities within the public right-of-way to ensure compliance with the latest accessibility guidelines.
The ADA Transition Plan also furthers the goals and initiatives set forth in Connecting Cook County, the Cook County Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), which prioritizes pedestrians, transit, and other transportation alternatives, promotes equal access, and supports maintaining and modernizing existing facilities within the public right-of-way.
