MaineDOT ADA Policy Statement

The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibit a public entity from discriminating against qualified persons with disabilities in access to facilities and services that the public entity provides. For MaineDOT and organizations that receive funds from MaineDOT, these services, facilities or activities are related to the planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operations of transportation systems.

Pursuant to the requirements of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 USC 794), the Maine Department of Transportation, desiring to avail itself of Federal financial assistance from the US Department of Transportation, hereby gives assurance that no qualified disabled person shall, solely by reason of his disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination, including discrimination in employment, under any program or activity that receives or benefits from this federal financial assistance.
