How do Public Works staff stay up to date on the ADA?

Making pedestrian facilities compliant with ADA requirements is part of our everyday work. Each Public Works project is reviewed to ensure we meet ADA requirements. All transportation projects have ADA components. For example, ADA improvements are an important part of safe routes to school and active transportation projects. City staff take regular training courses on ADA requirements.
