ADA Transition Plan Inventory

The ADA Inventory and Assessment Application contains data that portrays the pedestrian facility inventory and ADA assessment of these facilities located in the right of way under DelDOT’s jurisdiction and authority. The data collection process for the ADA Inventory and Assessment Application occurred during 2011 and 2012 as part of DelDOT’s ADA Self-Evaluation obligations.
