The City of Springfield desires that all individuals have safe walking routes. The American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA) and its standards have changed throughout the years and much of the City’s older infrastructure is not compliant by today’s standard. To eventually address all non-compliant sidewalks and curb ramps, the City of Springfield has developed an ADA Transition Planwhich prioritizes all ADA improvement needs on public Right-of-way. As of 2013, the City is holding itself to a higher standard for new or reconstructed projects by following PROWAG (Public Rights of Way Access Guidelines).
