Honolulu Curb Ramp Implementation Program

The project involves the preparation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Self Evaluation and Transition Plans for Streets and Sidewalks for the City and County of Honolulu in accordance with the ADA Title II and the U.S. Department of Justice regulations, as well as, the implementation of the recommendations in the aforementioned plans. The Self Evaluation is a review of existing policies and practices that may impinge upon achieving maximum compliance with the latest ADA requirements. The resulting recommendations provide clear guidance for rectifying policies and practices to assure that program access can be achieved in the long-term. The Transition Plan is a policy guide that is focused on the physical aspects of achieving program access by correcting existing deficiencies and providing new ADA-compliant curb ramps in the most cost-effective manner. A central feature of the Transition Plan is the development of a computerized database that includes measurements of 23 key elements of each curb ramp or accessibility feature, identification of any deficiencies, recommendations for modifications and associated cost estimates, and a digital library of curb ramp images representing every intersection under City and County of Honolulu jurisdiction. The implementation of the Transition Plan recommendations requires project management, design coordination, technical assistance, education, and database management. Several strategies were investigated to ensure consistent and cost effective designs while maximizing production rates.
