Readiness Roadmap

A phased ADA Transition plan mitigates risk in the short-term

Creating a “living” ADA Transition plan, which can be continually updated, allows you to start where you are, assess your risk, and minimize its impact over time. Our Readiness Road Map helps you evaluate your current situation and set a course for the future of pedestrian access in the public rights-of-way in your community.

1. Understand Where You Are

This critical initial step in creating an actionable ADA Transition Plan helps you assess your inventory, funding, existing asset management systems, and their shortcomings, as well as identify the people who must be involved to create a successful plan.

2. Understand Where You Need to Go

ADA Transition Planning is not a project, it is the beginning of a new program. A successful program must have leadership buy-in and support as well as practices and procedures that support the work.

3. Anticipate Common Pitfalls

Cole’s experience indicates that many agencies face similar issues in their ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Planning in these areas: mindset, organization, project timeline, the implementation plan and the Transition Plan Report. Our experts help you navigate and plan to avoid some of these challenges.

4. Integrate Strategic Solutions

Creating a “living” ADA Transition Plan and understanding that you must begin with the end in mind helps you develop a sustainable plan. For each challenge there is an opportunity to strategically put your agency in the best possible position, while maximizing pedestrian accessibility.

5. Identify Suitable Technology & Systems

Cole’s ULIP-ADA technology reduces the time and labor costs associated with collecting sidewalk inventory, efficiently and precisely producing the data you need to make decisions.
