Pedestrian Facilities in the Public Right-of-Way

The Snohomish County Public Works Department is responsible for ensuring that the following pedestrian facilities in the public right-of-way of unincorporated Snohomish County comply with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA): 
  • Curb ramps
  • Pedestrian crossings
  • Pedestrian signals, beacons, and pushbuttons
  • Sidewalks
  • Bus Stops
  • Alternate pedestrian facilities in work zones

Residents can get involved by applying to serve on the Snohomish County ADA Public Right-of-Way (ADAPROW) Citizen Advisory Committee. The county is currently working on an ADA Transition Plan after completing its Self-Evaluation Plan in 2017. As a leader in ADA compliance, county staff works to educate contractors and partner agencies through specific Design and Inspection Standards and Guidelines. Feedback on Snohomish County ADA facilities can be given through an accessibility request or by filing a grievance (see below).
