About accessibility

DelDOT endeavors to comply with the ADA through implementation of accessibility technical requirements described in the "Standards for Accessible Design" (issued as the "ADA Accessibility Guidelines - ADAAG") enforced by the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Transportation. DelDOT has adopted many of the features described in the federal accessibility standards in the Department's Design Standards. Since March 15, 2012, compliance with the 2010 Standards is required for new construction and alterations.
