The City of Clayton, MO, has selected Cole as their ADA Transition Planning consultant. Our team will be examining the existing conditions of pedestrian access routes to assist Clayton in achieving compliance with the 2010 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards & Regulations and Public Rights-of-Way Accessibility Guidelines (PROWAG). The end result will be a legally defensible ADA transition plan including a prioritized list of barriers and estimated annual budget for removal.
Data will be collected on 60 miles of sidewalk, 1200 curb ramps, and 23 signals in the City of Clayton. We are conducting the ADA public inventory using a modern technology built custom for ADA transition planning. These highly accurate and cost effective tools involve a ULIP (Ultra Light Inertial Profiler) mounted on a segway along with a Cole developed ArcGIS Database, web portal and electronic forms for data collection, synching, and sharing. We’re also assisting the City with staff training, public outreach, and grievance procedures.
Cole is pleased to continue working with the City of Clayton. The project will begin next month when we kick off work plan development and review of the City’s existing policies and design standards as they pertain to the ADA.
