Todd County Public Outreach Notice

 

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has enacted a requirement that all local agencies with greater than 50 employees or who are slated to receive federal funding included in the 2019-2022 Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) must develop and adopt an ADA Transition Plan or be substantially working towards completion of the plan. If the local agency does not have their Transition Plan completed or in progress, the agency risks losing federal funding for transportation projects.  

Each agency is required to complete a self-evaluation/survey of its facilities, policies and practices as it relates to the requirements set forth in The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Repair or replacement of deficient facilities must be noted and addressed in a formal transition plan.

This document has been created to specifically cover accessibility within the public rights of way and does not include information on Todd County programs, practices, or building facilities not related to public rights of way. 

The draft Todd County ADA Transition Plan is available on the Todd County website at the following address: https://www.co.todd.mn.us/departments/public_works/public_works_frontpag.... Hard copies of the draft are also available at the Todd County Public Works Department (see address below).
