Curb Ramps at Boren Avenue and University Street

The Seattle Times submitted a number of reader questions about transportation related work around the city.  Reader comment:  “The ramp and adjacent sidewalk was jackhammered out and new ramps and adjacent sidewalk installed.”

This is an example of rework by a private contractor that SDOT required.  Boren Avenue was repaved by a contractor in 2008.  Two curb ramps did not meet the project specifications and were replaced, before SDOT accepted the work.  The private contractor paid for the rework.
