Welcome

The Department understands our duty to provide accessibility for users of our services, programs and facilities, including those who have disabilities. FDOT's ADA/Accessibility Program is managed by the statewide ADA Coordinator in Tallahassee and implemented by District ADA coordinators and project managers throughout the seven FDOT Districts and the Florida Turnpike Enterprise. The goal of the FDOT ADA/Accessibility Program is to be the most accessible state highway system in the country.

The FDOT endeavors to comply with the ADA by adoption of accessibility technical requirements described in the "Standards for Transportation Facilities" (ADA Standards) into the Department's Design Standards. As the federal guidance and standards are updated, the Department will adopt these latest requirements as state standards for use on the State Highway System and other facilities.
