Regional Sidewalk Inventory

CDTC has recently completed a nearly four year effort to develop an overview of sidewalk infrastructure at the Regional level. CDTC has created a GIS-based inventory of existing sidewalk infrastructure in all 77 municipalities within CDTC’s planning area. The primary objective for creating this inventory arose from an increasing emphasis by USDOT to ensure that MPO’s and State DOT’s are in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, which requires local governments to develop Transition Plans to identify a course of action to bring deficient pedestrian facilities into ADA compliance. CDTC’s Sidewalk Inventory is intended to be used as a baseline or first step in assisting municipalities with developing a screening process to evaluate ADA compliance of their existing sidewalk facilities. In addition to providing a summary of our regional sidewalk mileage, the inventory will be used to help in future planning projects and programs by identifying existing pedestrian facilities as well as gaps in the pedestrian network.
