Cook County launches website to track, promote ADA efforts

The Cook County Department of Transportation and Highways has launched a website as part of its Americans with Disabilities Act Transition Plan public outreach efforts.

The ADA Transition Plan provides a pathway to make county rights of way accessible to all users of the roadways, including those with disabilities. It is structured to complement and promote the goals of the Cook County Long Range Transportation Plan, which prioritizes pedestrians, transit and other transportation alternatives, promotes equal access and maintains and modernizes existing facilities.

Through videos, downloads and other accessible methods, the website aims to explain more about the plan, including identification of barriers to access, a schedule for meeting ADA compliance and a method public input. For more information and to view the website, visit
