Pursuant to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504), the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and related federal and state laws and regulations, UDOT will make every effort to ensure that its facilities, programs, services, and activities are accessible to those with disabilities. UDOT will provide reasonable accommodation to disabled individuals who wish to participate in public involvement events or who require special assistance to access UDOT facilities, programs, services or activities. Because providing reasonable accommodation may require outside assistance, organization or resources, UDOT asks that requests be made at least five (5) calendar days prior to the need for accommodation. Questions, concerns, comments or requests for accommodation should be made to UDOT’s ADA Coordinator. Services are provided free without charge for individuals with special needs with disabilities. Any fees will be paid by the recipient or subrecipient. The public will have access to translators, “I Speak Cards”, TTY/TDD services and vital documents translated when requested.
