Compliance Planning draws from a range of current SHA initiatives to ensure all public rights-of-way (PROW) become compliant. In addition to ensuring that all new projects are compliance, the following elements are part of the Compliance Planning process.
Self Evaluation Plan
: The purpose of SHA’s Self-Evaluation is to produce a comprehensive survey of existing access in public rights-of-way (PROW) facilities, essentially providing a base line. SHA's self-evaluation consists of two parts: a field inventory of existing conditions based on a statewide checklist and local public meetings to create a dialog about the survey results. The results of the self-evaluation and public meetings are used to identify and prioritize improvements that are implemented through the Transition Plan.
: The purpose of the Transition Plan is to aid in taking identified deficiencies and translating them into compliant elements needed to achieve accessibility to public rights of way (PROW). It is essentially a schedule giving priority to certain types of facilities and allowing the State to program improvements in a cost-effective manner. Public Meetings
are conducted to allow for the public to provide input for areas of concern or importance.
