Roadside Design - Meeting the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

WSDOT is committed to making all our facilities accessible to all persons, regardless of abilities. Below are some useful resources.

ADA Resources

WSDOT developed Standard Plans to comply with state and federal ADA laws. These standards deal with pedestrian facilities, such as curb cuts and driveways. The Design Manual has been updated to reflect the current laws.
