The City of Orlando is engaged in an ongoing effort to construct and repair sidewalks, curb ramps, and other facilities at numerous locations throughout the city.
This construction activity involves several types of projects, including street overlay projects, streetscape projects, utility construction projects and other Capital Improvement Projects within the Public Rights‐of‐Way.
While it is important to ensure that standards used to design sidewalks, curb ramps, and related improvements are current, it is equally important to monitor construction to ensure that the construction is performed according to the approved specifications.
The monitoring of construction activities and reporting of the status of improvements is vital to ensure an effective overall ADA compliance program.
The 2021 ADA Transition Plan Update also include the development of a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) database of pedestrian facilities and deficiencies which public works staff can use to record the improvements observed by monitoring these construction activities and for tracking the status of ADA compliance throughout the City.
By updating this database as improvements are made along the pedestrian access routes, the city will always have a current model representing the status of the city’s ADA compliance which can be used to continuously track remaining necessary improvements.
