General Description

The City’s Transportation Advisory Committee worked with communty stakeholders to determine which streets or neighborhoods had the highest need for ADA improvements.  A list of project areas were developed and evaluated for greatest need and highest existing pedestrain volume.  From this list, Idaho Street was selected as the highest priority.  This project was developed to provide improved sidewalk access to all pedestrians along the corridor in accordance with the ADA mandate for public streets. 

This project also provides improved access to the City’s transit system.  In order to leverage the limited local funds available, the City will be using Federal Transit 80/20 matching funds for design and construction.  Once this project area was developed, it was identified to have a significant amount of overlap with the FEMA I Stormwater Project Area.  It was determined that the Accessible Ramp project should be coordinated with the FEMA stormwater project in order to reduce construction costs and the impact to the neighborhood.  The project was expanded to include an additional 10 ramps within the FEMA I Stormwater Project area.  A total of 41 new ramps will be constructed.
