General Information

G8.1 Project title: Signal and Sidewalk ADA Improvements
G8.2 Project description: This project will provide funding to reconstruct signal equipment, curb ramps, and sidewalks to correct ADA deficiencies at and near signalized intersections. These improvements will enhance transportation options for both able-bodied and disabled pedestrians, as well as bicyclists. Transit riders will also have improved access to stops via these improvements.

The City is requesting $500,000 in TA funds for this work, and is prepared to match this amount with $125,000 in City funding. However, this project is completely scalable as the project will consists of a small amount of work at many locations. The project scope will be expanded or contracted based on the amount of funds allocated to the project.
