(VINCENNES) - The Indiana Department of Transportation will host the next meeting of its Americans with Disabilities Act Community Advisory Working Group from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. today, at its District Office, located at 3650 Old US Hwy 41, Vincennes, IN 47591.

The meeting is being held under Indiana's Open Door Law and the public is welcome and encouraged to attend.

The advisory group and the public have the opportunity to provide information and recommendations regarding INDOT's ADA Transition Plan and means to improve accessibility to all INDOT programs and facilities. This includes efforts to increase the public involvement of persons with disabilities in transportation planning.

INDOT's ADA Transition Plan examines current facilities and services for access barriers to persons with disabilities. INDOT uses this plan to quantify and prioritize changes that will bring its programs and practices into compliance with Title II of the ADA, Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and all related statutes, regulations and directives. The document is available for review in Microsoft Word and PDF format on INDOT's website under "Accessibility & Non-Discrimination" at http://www.in.gov/indot/3583.htm

With advance notice, special accommodations will be made for individuals needing auxiliary aids or services of interpreters, signers, readers, or large print. Anyone with such needs should contact Rickie Clark with INDOT's Office of Public Involvement at 317-232-6601 or rclark@indot.in.gov.
