Americans with Disabilities Act Information

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) sets certain design standards for public infrastructure to maximize accessibility for all citizens.  The Division of Engineering is responsible for ensuring that pedestrian facilities within the County’s right-of-way, including sidewalks and curb ramps, are accessible to all pedestrians.  

The Division of Engineering has inspected all existing pedestrian facilities within County right-of-way to determine if they comply with current ADA accessibility standards.  The Self-Evaluation Survey and Transition Plan are posted below.

Public Input

Comments from the public regarding existing pedestrian accessibility needs along County roads are encouraged.  Residents who wish to provide comments are encouraged to submit a brief description of the barrier to accessibility they currently face to Washington County ADA Title II Compliance Coordinator.  Concerned citizens may provide input by sending an email to the office, or sending a letter by regular mail to:

ADA Title II Compliance Coordinator
Washington County, Maryland
