Forwarded on behalf of the Missouri Department of Transportation.  Please share with other interested individuals.



The Missouri Department of Transportation has updated its Transition Plan and posted it to our web page for public review and comment until October 30, 2010.  It may be found at - 


In addition to reviewing the plan, people are encouraged to take the surveys located on the same web page.  The surveys provide an opportunity for people to let us know about specific locations that may be important to them and will help the department prioritize where to spend available funds to provide services where they are most needed. 

To further its commitment to meeting the public's broad and varying transportation needs, the Missouri Department of Transportation has developed a transition plan outlining additional steps it will be taking to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  The ADA requires all public entities to make their facilities, programs and services accessible to everyone, including people with disabilities.   

Improvements are required when facilities and services are altered.  For example, as roads are resurfaced, curb ramps will be installed or upgraded to meet ADA requirements. The rest of the existing pedestrian network on the state's highway system will also be brought up to current standards as funding allows.  In addition, while MoDOT's buildings are ADA accessible, some modifications are needed and will be made over the next five years.   

The Transition Plan is also available at each of MoDOT's ten district offices. For assistance in reviewing the documents or completing the surveys please contact our customer service representatives at 1-888-ASK MoDOT (1-888-275-6636). 

Thank you,
