The E-470 Public Highway Authority (the “Authority”) has conducted regular monitoring and scanning of its information and communication technology (“ICT”), as such term is defined in 8 CCR § 1501-11.4, as further described below:

  • Initial website audits on both E-470.com and ExpressToll.com were completed in the first quarter of 2024.
  • An audit summary for each website was provided to the Authority for review.
  • Findings were broken out into Critical, Serious, Moderate, Minor and Best Practices classifications.
  • Priority trackers were created by the Authority to identify the areas to focus remediation, as follows:
Severity     DescriptionE470.com (Total Identified)E470.com (Total Remaining)
CriticalA disabled user would not be able to use the page, or properly view content given its current state. This is a launch blocker.2323
SeriousA disabled user would face extreme difficulty but not impossibility in using the site with errors of this nature. In most cases, this is a launch blocker.3333
ModerateA disabled user with effort would be able to understand and consume the content on the page.5656
MinorA violation by the standard but one that would present little to no true impact to the disabled user. These would need to be fixed to be considered fully compliant but that could occur as a patch after launch.1313
Best PracticeThis is recommended work that enhances usability for disabled users but is not considered a violation in its current state. Often these types of issues are changes to the CSS style sheet.22
