Montgomery ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan
The City of Montgomery in Alabama, brought on Kimley-Horn to develop the City’s ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan, evaluate pedestrian facilities throughout the City, and prepare cost projections for prioritized accessibility improvements. Kimley-Horn also developed strategies for the implementation of accessibility improvements.
The following facilities were evaluated for compliance with the 2011 Proposed Accessibility Guidelines for Pedestrian Facilities in the Public Right-of-Way (PROWAG):
- 75 signalized intersections
- 525 unsignalized intersections
- 35 miles of sidewalk
- 872 curb ramps
- 50 transit stops
Facility reports were developed for each intersection and sidewalk corridor, which included a summary of compliance, project priority, project cost projection, and photolog of curb ramps and pedestrian signal equipment. Additionally, the project team reviewed the public rights-of-way pedestrian elements within the City’s SmartCode design criteria for compliance with PROWAG.
The Kimley-Horn project team facilitated public involvement, hosting a public meeting to receive feedback on accessibility concerns. An online public access survey and interactive mapping tool were also used to gather public comments, allowing areas of concern to be drawn on aerial and site-specific comments to be inputted. The Transition Plan was completed in 2020.
