ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a civil rights law that mandates equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities. The ADA prohibits discrimination in access to jobs, public accommodations, government services, public transportation, and telecommunications. The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) has undertaken a comprehensive evaluation of its policies, programs, and various facilities including the public rights-of-way and rail crossings to determine the extent to which individuals with disabilities may be restricted in their access to ODOT services and activities. In addition, ODOT has evaluated facilities adjacent to ODOT facilities, partnering with the local municipalities to ensure, as a federal recipient, that the municipalities receive the best guidance available to achieve their ADA compliance to the maximum extent feasible.
