WOC provided technical services to the State DOT for implementing corrective measures of deficiencies identified in the ADA Transition Plan for facilities under the jurisdiction of the State DOT. Services included reviewing design plans for new and modified curb ramps, sidewalks, and emergency call boxes prepared by other design consultants for compliance with ADA Title II Department of Justice implementing regulations (28 CFR Section 35.101, Section 35.149, and Section 35.150), and the latest requirements recommended by PROWAC (Public Rights-of-Way Accessibility Committee), an advisory committee to Department of Justice. Design services were provided specifically for projects involving unusual or difficult conditions requiring creative practical design solutions based on a complete understanding of the ADA accessibility requirements and provisions.
WOC provided post-design services during implementation of the state DOT ADA Transition Plan. Services included providing technical assistance in resolving issues with construction. Often times, construction practices and methods did not coincide with the intent of providing accessibility. A balance of providing a safe pedestrian environment while achieving accessibility was the primary objecting during both the design and construction phases of the project. WOC provided technical guidance to DOT and contractors by developing alternate solutions to situations requiring modifications to the initial designs to facilitate constructability.
