Title

ADA transition plan for public rights-of-way

Sections

The overall goal for an ADA transition plan is to provide access to all.  As such, the city has developed a draft plan to make roads, sidewalks and trails more accessible, as outlined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Learn more about ADA.  

The transition plan provides a better understanding of the Bloomington assets in the right-of-way.  It includes pedestrian ramps with truncated domes to audible pedestrian signals and even obstructions like power poles in the sidewalk.  It will also help us develop our investment priorities in the future.

City Council approved the plan at their November 7, 2016 meeting.

The Bloomington ADA Public Right of Way Transition Plan was approved by City Council on November 7, 2016 and is a living document that receives routine updates. The document is currently receiving updates and a draft document can be found on the ADA Public Rights-of-Way Transition Plan Let’s Talk Bloomington page found here https://letstalk.bloomingtonmn.gov/ada-transition-plan-update. This document will be available for review through February 4, 2022.
