Why is Public Works developing a transition plan now?

In 2011, Everett Public Works began a self-evaluation of our pedestrian facility inventory, and we have been working on our draft transition plan for many years. To create the self-evaluation inventory, crews travel 733 lane-miles of streets covering over 3,326 individual road segments and 1,536 intersections. In 2018, we made the draft Public Right-of-Way ADA Transition Plan available on our website.

This year, we are conducting a major public outreach process before we finalize the 2021 transition plan, to get as much feedback as possible to incorporate into the plan. We are required to have a final plan by April 2021. After we finalize the 2021 plan, we will continue to take public input through our regular feedback procedures.
