These funds seek to comply with requirements of the federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to provide access to the sidewalk and street crossing network. A study of the city's signalized intersections conducted by Timmons Group in 2015 identified over $1.1 mivllion dollars in deficiencies related to pedestrian access - including curb ramp improvements and access to pedestrian pushbuttons. This project aims to increase ADA access at those intersections.
