Curb ramp replacements begin in metro area

Project to remove, replace 170 existing ramps with ADA compliant ones in Jefferson, Broomfield counties

Posted

Work has begun to remove and replace 170 curb ramps with ADA-compliant ramps in more than 50 intersections in Broomfield and Jefferson counties.

The $1.2 million Colorado Department of Transportation project will address ramp width, ramp length, detectible warnings and more. The contractor partner is Villalobos Concrete Inc.

“CDOT is committed to ensuring mobility for all travelers on our state systems regardless of their ability,” CDOT Regional Transportation Director Paul Jesaitis said in a news release. “This project is necessary to make sure the curb ramps in these intersections are in alignment with [Americans with Disabilities Act] standards.”

The project will continue through spring 2019.

Motorists can expect lane closures and increased traffic delays in the work zone. Typical working hours are Mondays to Fridays, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. To minimize traffic impacts, lane closures will be in effect from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Pedestrian access also will be limited during the project.

In 2017, CDOT embarked on an $85 million effort to bring all curb ramps into alignment with the ADA and PROWAG (Public Rights-of-Way Accessibility Guidelines) standards over the next five years. With more than 20,000 curb ramps statewide, CDOT is taking a “worst first” approach to upgrading curb ramps and addressing deficiencies. The approach has been reviewed and vetted by the Colorado Advisory Council for Persons with Disabilities. Learn more at http://codot.gov/business/civilrights/ada.
