Overview

 

The City of Springfield is in the process of completing a new inventory of their sidewalk and curb ramps located on public right of way.  With an estimated 700 miles of sidewalk and 10,000 curb ramps, maintaining a current inventory is a critical factor for a City to keep an accessible public right of way.  The completed inventory will serve as a benchmark to move the city forward with developing a process to keep their inventory current and developing their Public Rights of Way ADA Transition Plan.  This session will cover lessons learned along the way as well as partnerships that have been developed and have become the foundation to the overall success of the city’s ADA program.
