CDOT ADA Curb Ramp Program Rolling Out Statewide

28-Sep-2017 to 11-Oct-2017

CDOT recently embarked on an $85M effort to bring all curb ramps into compliance with the ADA and PROWAG standards over the next five years. With more than 20,000 curb ramps statewide, CDOT is taking a "worst first" approach to upgrading curb ramps and addressing deficiencies. This approach has been reviewed and vetted by the Colorado Cross Disability Coalition and includes nine categories that group curb ramps according to common issues. As part of this effort, CDOT also updated and released a 2017 ADA TransitionPlan which includes policies, procedures, and an overview of the 5-year ADA Curb Ramp Program. The program is focused on upgrading ramps not scheduled to be addressed during regular engineering project delivery over the next 5 years, thus ensuring that the agency maximizes opportunities for program delivery. Several documents and resources are available to contractors including recently released training videos. Click on the links below to get up to speed.
