Transition Plan

A fully inclusive transportation system is critical to fulfilling ODOT's mission. Our plan to make our transportation system accessible is detailed in our Transition Plan. The plan identifies physical obstacles that limit accessibility of facilities. It:

  • Describes the methods to be used to make the facilities accessible;
  • Provides a schedule for making the access modifications; and
  • Identifies the public officials responsible for implementing the plan.

Our Commitment to Equal Access

ODOT is committed to providing equal access to our facilities, programs and services. We honor and respect our individual differences and we work to ensure that people from diverse backgrounds have equitable opportunities, both internally and externally, to work for and conduct business with ODOT.

ODOT is responsible for state and interstate highways. We are also responsible for much of the sidewalk, curb ramps and other roadway features that help to make communities livable.

We created an Americans with Disabilities Act Program that provides structures and processes for the agency. We recognize that because of the complexity of both the law and agency operations, a programmatic approach is required to ensure ADA is addressed in a complete, consistent, compliant and rigorous manner.


We are committed to fostering a diverse workplace that represent the communities we serve. ODOT is an Equal Employment Opportunity-Affirmative Action employer and does not discriminate on the basis of disability in hiring or employment practices, and complies with all regulations of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission under Title I of the ADA.

Job applicants with a disability may request a reasonable accommodation during the application/interview process. Contact the Employee Civil Rights & Diversity manager, 1-877-EEO-ODOT (336-6368).


You may request reasonable accommodation to ODOT services, programs and events. Requests may include but are not limited to:

  • Printed materials in alternative formats
  • Sign language interpretation
  • Assisted listening devices
  • Website accessibility/document conversion
  • Public meeting and facility access

To request assistance:

Call 855-540-6655; for TTY use 711 relay service

Designing for Accessibility

The Americans with Disabilities Act requires pedestrian infrastructure be accessible and usable by people of all abilities. ODOT provides technical requirements, guidance and standards to ensure completed projects are accessible.
