Self Evaluation and Transition Plan (SETP)

The Augusta, Georgia ADA Transition Plan is a living document that implements the self-evaluation and remediation requirements set forth in Title II of the ADA and related regulations.  In 2016, Augusta, Georgia completed an ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan (SETP). The SETP was completed by Cranston Engineering Group and focused on the Administrative requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990/2008 (ADA) and the accessibility of the pedestrian facilities in the public-rights-of-way(PROW). The sidewalks, cross-walks, and bus stops downtown and near schools across Richmond County were evaluated for compliance with the ADA Standards for Accessible Design. The collected data was entered into the Augusta-Richmond County GIS system.  An ADA Transition Plan Update will be completed annually beginning in 2020 and identify priorities, budgets and timelines for remediating accessibility and improving compliance with the ADA in Augusta-Richmond County.
