MCEO AND THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT (ADA)

The Montgomery County Engineer is committed to providing safe and usable pedestrian facilities for all pedestrians and to assure compliance with all federal, state, and local regulations and standards.

Title II of The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a comprehensive piece of civil rights legislation prohibiting discrimination and requires local governments to provide persons with disabilities an equal opportunity to benefit and to participate in State and local government programs, services, and activities. The ADA is an “equal opportunity” law for people with disabilities.

The Montgomery County Engineer’s Office is pleased to present its Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Public Road Right of Way Transition Plan.

The Transition Plan is the Engineer’s Office’s plan to bring all pedestrian facilities (sidewalks, all-purpose trails, curb ramps, and crossing signals) on the Montgomery County Road System within compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and standards.  The Montgomery County Engineer’s Office is committed to achieving compliance with these laws and guidelines by way of current and future roadway projects on County jurisdictional roads, as well as access improvement-specific projects hereafter.

Please note that this plan applies to roads under the care and control of the Board of County Commissioners and the Montgomery County Engineer.  It does not apply to streets within cities or most roads within townships.  For further explanation of the County Road System, see Page 4 of the Montgomery Engineer’s Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Public Road Right of Way Transition Plan below.

In the meantime, if you are a resident of Montgomery County and identify necessary immediate improvements to access on County roads, please see the Grievance Procedure and Grievance Form below.

This Office welcomes your input on the ADA Transition Plan.  Please feel free to submit your comments to Victoria Watson, Montgomery County Engineer’s Office, Real Estate Manager at watsonv@mcohio.com or at (937) 496-7741.
