Statewide ADA Prioritization and Design
Massachusetts Department of Transportation – Statewide, MA
HSH is working with all six MassDOT Districts, MassDOT Highway Design, and the MassDOT Office of Diversity and Civil Rights on the prioritization and design of ADA compliant curb ramps as a federal requirement of the MassDOT ADA Transition program. HSH is reviewing the initial data set of non-compliant ramps for every District, and will prioritize the list using a comprehensive data-driven approach. The prioritization will follow the new guidelines introduced in the NCHRP Report 803 Pedestrian and Bicycle Transportation Along Existing Roads – Active Trans Priority Tool Guidebook released in April 2015. Once the curb ramp priority list is finalized, HSH will provide survey and design. We will then assemble a contract document package for advertisement and bidding. HSH will also implement an agile project delivery process coordinated with MassDOT to facilitate parallel agency review periods. Peter performed a peer constructability review on this project to assess the design of the various proposed curb ramps throughout MassDOT District 5. Peter provided feedback and recommendations to the project manager regarding the layout and compliance of all curb ramps to assure the highest level of accessibility to all transportation users.
