Curb Ramp Accessibility Initiative

Overview

In 2017, CDOT embarked on an $85M effort to bring all curb ramps into alignment 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 Advisory Council for Persons with Disabilities, which provided a letter of support for CDOT's program.

Current Status 

As of June 2023, 19,865 (85%) of total curb ramps (23,430) have been inventoried.
