Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan

The City of New Orleans, Department of Public Works, has prepared an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Public Right-of-Way Transition Plan to address accessibility needs for persons with disabilities living and visiting the City. The plan sets priorities to improve pedestrian access routes along City-owned streets with facilities such as curb ramps, accessible pedestrian signals, and accessible transit stops.   

Development of the ADA Transition Plan was overseen by the Department of Public Works and the Mayor’s Advisory Council for Citizens with Disabilities to ensure consultation and involvement of key stakeholders in the planning process.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), enacted on July 26, 1990, provides comprehensive civil rights protections for persons with disabilities in the areas of employment, state and local government services, and access to public accommodations, transportation, and telecommunications. Title II of the ADA requires that the City develop a Transition Plan specific to City streets and sidewalks that addresses accessibility.
