ODOT ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan
Kimley-Horn completed a statewide self-evaluation and Transition Plan of ODOT’s services, programs, and activities to ensure all are accessible to persons with disabilities.
Facilities evaluated as part of the self-evaluation included signalized intersections, sidewalks and curb ramps, weigh stations, rest stops, tourism information centers, and public buildings and their associated parking areas. Kimley-Horn managed, scheduled, and participated in the data collection for all signalized intersections and sidewalk corridors within a 1-mile buffer of all cities and towns in the state of Oklahoma (approximately 1,100 signalized intersections, 5,000 unsignalized intersections, and 670 miles of sidewalk). All field data was collected in real-time using a GPS-based software and tablet interface developed in-house by Kimley-Horn staff.
As part of this project, ADA field assessments were completed for sidewalks and signalized intersections in the following cities:
- Oklahoma City
- Broken Arrow
- Midwest City
- Ponca City
The team then provided accessibility training for ODOT Division ADA coordinator liaisons, division engineers, and field inspection staff as well as developed field application operation manuals and data collection guidelines.
Once the evaluation and data collection phase was complete, Kimley-Horn established evaluation criteria and procedures to prioritize and implement proposed ADA improvement, then aided in the development of cost estimate reports for all project intersections and sidewalk corridors. The final Transition Plan was approved in 2014.
