    Old project name: ADA Transition Plan

    New Project name: ADA Transition Plan and 2017 Supplement

    The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) identifies facility requirements to meet the needs of persons with disabilities.  This University has a very strong history of support for persons with disabilities, and that is reflected in many of the campus facilities.  One example is the new Tim Nugent residence hall with the Beckwith program in Ikenberry Commons.  Sidewalks, traffic signals, construction zones, and buildings are designed to meet ADA code requirements.  In 2012, the City of Urbana published an ADA Transition Plan to survey and upgrade all curb ramps in that city's jurisdiction.  A similar survey and plan needs to be developed for campus walkways.  The vast majority of sidewalks on campus are already ADA code compliant, so this will identify the locations lacking proper facilities and prioritize those locations for correction.
