Civil Rights – DOJ and DOT Release Supplemental Document to 2013 Joint Technical Assistance Statement

Two years ago, in recognition of the necessity of curb ramps for people with disabilities, the Department of Justice and the Department of Transportation published their 2013 DOJ/DOT Joint Technical Assistance.  This text provides direction on the appropriate placement of curb ramps when streets, roads, or highways undergo resurfacing.  Since its release, both agencies have received numerous public inquiries on the matter.  In an effort to address these concerns, last week, the agencies released a supplemental technical assistance document entitled “Questions and Answers: Supplement to the 2013 DOJ/DOT Joint Technical Assistance on the Title II of the Americans With Disabilities Act Requirements To Provide Curb Ramps when Streets, Roads, or Highways are Altered through Resurfacing”.  If you would like to read this new document, you may do so here.  For clarity purposes, it is recommended that these reports be reviewed together.
