Accessible public rights of way, one street at a time

These newly constructed sidewalks, where no pedestrian path of travel existed before, are complete with detectable warning surfaces (DWS) and accessible slopes… promoting access to navigate the community for people of all abilities.

Efforts in Atlantic County to promote inclusive communities are driven by our mission to perform assessments for disabled access of all areas of public use….  street corners, sidewalks, technology, publically accessed buildings, programs and services. Assuring equal access for residents and visitors of all abilities via thorough evaluations, will result in an updated ‘ADA Transition Plan’.

Full community engagement is the motive. Equality is the reason. Compliance is the law. Health and unity is the outcome.
