Engineering for Accessibility

A transportation system that provides full accessibility results in a high quality system for all users. Accessible infrastructure has been linked to increased business opportunities, social development health benefits, and increased independence among community members.

Project Elements that Impact ADA Accessibility

For each project element, technical requirements are provided to guide the design of accessible public facilities. Project requirements for ADA can be found in the ADA Curb Ramp Process document.

Curb Ramp Inventory and Inspection Resources

ODOT maintains an inventory of curb ramps on state highways. The inventory data is collected from on-site visual inspections conducted statewide by certified inspectors.

Inspection Training

In this time of social distancing, ODOT has cancelled in-person construction training through June 30. While in-person trainings are cancelled, online training is available.

All personnel who perform ADA inspections/construction must be certified. Individuals may sign up for one of the virtual classes set up through iLearn. The short-term ADA certification will expire on December 31, 2020.
