New Curb Ramps at 15th Avenue NE and NE Brockman Place

The Seattle Times submitted a number of reader questions about transportation related work around the city.  Reader comment:  “The city very diligently put in wheelchair access curbs and then did nothing to make the rest of the sidewalks accessible.”

As part of a roadway repaving program, curb ramps are typically required to meet ADA guidelines associated with large projects of this type and size.  Replacing the older, existing sidewalks was not part of the scope of the paving project.  There has been no rework on this project.
