Citizens and ADA

At its heart, ADA is about ensuring equity for the public. MaineDOT is committed to fostering that equity wherever possible, and actively promotes awareness of nondiscrimination and accessibility requirements and resources. We will look into every request and complaint we receive and are committed to providing functional accessibility throughout the state.

Your Rights to Accessibility and Non-Discrimination

Federal law prohibits discrimination based on race, color, national origin, age, sex, or disability in any MaineDOT program or activity. This prohibition applies to all branches of MaineDOT, and agencies and organizations that receive money from MaineDOT, such as contractors, consultants, local agencies and anyone else who acts on MaineDOT's behalf.
