In 2018, the City of Springfield completed an inventory and assessment of sidewalks and curb ramps on public right-of-way. The City developed the Public Rights of Way ADA Transition Plan based on the results of the data collected during the inventory and assessment.
“The main goal of this plan is to set a timeline for the City to bring sidewalks and curb ramps that have identified barriers to accessibility, based on the data collected in 2018, up to current ADA standards,” said Public Works ADA Coordinator Dawne Gardner, AICP, ADAC.
