Inner Loop ADA Accessible Ramps & Various Arterial Sidewalks

About the Project

Streets have accessible ramps and sidewalks. This project will make much of the Inner Loop area compliant with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards for sidewalks and ramps. It will provide needed accessible facilities in a harsh urban area as well as promote safe pedestrian and non-motorized travel. Specifically, the City plans to construct ADA-accessible sidewalk ramps on the North Clinton Avenue, Joseph Avenue, North Street and Scio Street bridges over the Inner Loop Expressway. The consultant should fully understand structural aspects of the project including expansion joint systems, header details, abutment modifications, curb details, reinforced deck systems, and conduit issues.

Additional sidewalk will also be constructed on the following streets to provide a safer environment for pedestrians.

  • Emerson Street: 5,300 linear feet of new sidewalk on the north side of Emerson Street from Lee Road to Mt Read Blvd;
  • Lexington Avenue:2,550 linear feet of new sidewalk on the north side of Lexington Avenue from Colfax Street to Mt. Read Blvd;
  • Driving Park Avenue: 1,420 linear feet of new sidewalk on the north side of Driving Park Avenue from LaGrange Avenue to Ramona Street
