Americans with Disabilities Act: External Nondiscrimination Program

ADOT’s Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Compliance Program coordinates implementation to ensure that individuals with disabilities have an equal opportunity in all facilities, programs, activities, and services.

It is the policy of the Arizona Department of Transportation that no qualified individual with a disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any of its programs, services, or activities as provided by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). ADOT further assures that every effort will be made to provide nondiscrimination in all of its programs, services, and activities regardless of the funding source, including FAA, FTA, FHWA, and state funds.

ADOT is committed to operating in accordance with the ADA and related nondiscrimination obligations such as these:

  • Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
  • Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964

ADA Transition Plan

It is a requirement under Section 504 and the Americans with Disabilities Act to develop a transition plan when structural changes to existing facilities and pedestrian right-of-way locations are necessary in order to make a program, service, or activity accessible to individuals with disabilities.
