ADA Transition Plan Update
MDT is updating the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan, which directs the department’s efforts to provide an accessible transportation system within the state of Montana. Periodic updates of the plan are beneficial to ensure continuous improvement through incorporation of new technologies, streamlined processes, and modernized approaches that best meet MDT’s needs and operating conditions.
The plan aims to establish a consistent approach for accommodating disabled individuals by identifying methods to assist MDT in complying with ADA regulations and removing accessibility barriers throughout the state. The plan is not intended to identify specific projects or barrier locations.
While MDT encourages comments at any time as accessibility-related transportation issues arise, the plan update presents an opportunity for targeted outreach on this topic to better understand needs and concerns from the perspective of disabled users, disability advocates, and other stakeholders and interested members of the public.
