Involving Individuals with Visual Impairment In Project Decision-Making: A Survey of Practice

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 required national and state agencies to make facilities and services accessible to individuals with disabilities, including people with visual impairment. MnDOT and other state departments of transportation are working to meet ADA requirements. One major focus of this compliance effort is MnDOT’s review of how it can involve individuals with visual impairment in the process of planning and designing transportation facilities. MnDOT is exploring best practices for involving persons with visual impairment in transportation facility planning and design. This Transportation Research Synthesis presents the results of a limited literature search and surveys of state transportation agencies and advocacy and service organizations to determine effective approaches to communicate with individuals with visual impairment and to engage them in transportation project decision-making.
