It is the goal of the Butler
County Engineer to provide safe and usable pedestrian facilities
for all pedestrians and to assure compliance with all federal,
state, and local regulations and standards.
Title II of The Americans with
Disabilities Act (ADA) is a comprehensive piece of civil rights
legislation prohibiting discrimination and requires local governments
to provide persons with disabilities an equal opportunity to
benefit and to participate in State and local government programs,
services, and activities. The ADA is an "equal opportunity"
law for people with disabilities.
The Proposed Accessibility Guidelines
for Pedestrian Facilities in the Public Right-of-Way (PROWAG)
is a document issued by the United States Access Board for the
purpose of providing direction for the design, construction,
and alteration of pedestrian facilities in the public right-of-way.
The Butler County Engineer's Office is committed to achieving
compliance with these guidelines by way of current and future
roadway projects on County jurisdictional roads, as well as access
improvement-specific projects hereafter.
To document and monitor the Butler
County Engineer's compliance with Title II of the ADA, the Engineer's
Office is in the process of performing a Self-Evaluation and
developing a Transition Plan for access in the public road right-of-way.
If you are a resident of Butler
County and identify necessary immediate improvements to access
in the public road right-of-way, please see the Grievance Procedure
and Grievance Form below.
