INDOT Hosting Meetings to Update Public on ADA Transition Plan

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Department of Transportation today announced two upcoming public meetings to discuss INDOT’s Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) transition plan. Members of the ADA Community Advisory Working Group and the public will have the opportunity to provide information and recommendations regarding INDOT’s ADA Transition Plan and provide input to INDOT on how to improve accessibility to all INDOT programs and facilities. This includes efforts to increase the public involvement of persons with disabilities in transportation planning.

The first meeting will be held Thursday, February 22 from 10 a.m. to noon ET. The second meeting will be Thursday, March 22 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET. Both meetings will be held in the Indiana Government Center South Conference Center, 302 W. Washington Street, Indianapolis, IN 46204. Both meetings can be attended online at https://Indiana.AdobeConnect.com/indot.

INDOT’s ADA Transition Plan examines current facilities and services for barriers to access for persons with disabilities. INDOT uses this plan to quantify and prioritize changes that will bring its programs and practices into compliance with Title II of the ADA, Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and all related statutes, regulations and directives. The current document (being revised and updated for 2018) is available for review in Microsoft Word and PDF format on INDOT’s website under “Accessibility & Non-Discrimination” at http://www.in.gov/indot/3583.htm.

In accordance with the “Americans with Disabilities Act”, persons with disabilities requiring assistance and/or accommodation related to the accessibility to project documents and participation at the public hearing venue, are encouraged to contact Rickie Clark, INDOT Office of Public Involvement at (317) 232-6601 rclark@indot.in.gov.
