Finding the Right Tools for your ADA Transition Plan

by Jose Reyes | Jun 03, 2016

Nationwide local jurisdictions have begun to implement features required by the Americans with Disabilities Act, and many of these jurisdictions are struggling to juggle compliance, design, budgeting and maintenance. With a little background knowledge of the ADA and its standards, managers can help prevent some of the most common problems that may occur when installing and later maintaining their curb ramps.

It’s not enough to slap a curb ramp at the end of a sidewalk and call it a day. The ADA maintains very specific guidelines for design and maintenance. In recent years, many municipalities have been surprised to learn that their curb ramps do not comply with ADA standards. StreetSavers Curb Ramps Module was created to help with this problem. Our newest module makes any ADA Transition Plan less of a balancing act and more of a strategic approach. While the ADA requirements might present a challenge for some, the Curb Ramp module is the right toolbox for the job.

Here are just some of the key benefits:

  • Easily integrate the budgeting necessary by developing ADA ramp upgrade cost in your road maintenance budget planning phase.
  • Tracking the condition and location of your work becomes simple.
  • Display Curb Ramps alongside pavement section data for a spatial view of your entire network.
  • Create Curb Ramp Reports to assist in the budgeting and cost assessment of your ADA compliant curb ramps.
  • Integrate with StreetSaver pavement data for an all-encompassing management solution.

These features and more are available in our soon to be released Curb Ramps Module. Follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn and don't forget to visit our website for the latest updates.

Happy Transitioning!
