Transportation Accessibility

The City incorporates accessible design into all sidewalk and intersection upgrades. Accessible design includes:

  • An established safe maximum grade for wheelchair ramps
  • Zero lip ramps for a smoother transition from sidewalk to roadway
  • Relocating utility poles from sidewalks wherever possible
  • A minimum clear zone on sidewalks, free of utility poles or benches
  • Audible and countdown pedestrian signals at intersections
