Description

This project provides for both curb ramps for sidewalks and new transportation accessibility construction in compliance with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1991 (ADA). This improvement program provides for planning, design, and reconstruction of existing Countywide infrastructure to enable obstruction-free access to public facilities, public transportation, Central Business Districts (CBDs), health facilities, shopping centers, and recreation. Curb ramp installation at intersections along residential roads will be constructed based on population density. Funds are provided for the removal of barriers to wheelchair users such as signs, poles, and fences, and for intersection improvements such as the reconstruction of median breaks and new curb ramps, crosswalks, and sidewalk connectors to bus stops. Curb ramps are needed to enable mobility for physically-impaired citizens, for the on-call transit program Accessible Ride On, and for County-owned and leased facilities. A portion of this project will support the Renew Montgomery program. One aspect of this project will focus on improving pedestrian walkability by creating a safer walking environment, utilizing selected engineering technologies, and ensuring ADA compliance.
