Fort Collins ADA Curb Ramp Improvements

About the Project:

The Colorado Department of Transportation is improving pedestrian walkways with the installation of American Disabilities Act (ADA) complaint curb ramps at various locations along SH 14, US 287 and the Prospect Rest Area off I-25 in the Fort Collins area.

Curb ramps are intended to provide pedestrians access between the sidewalk and street with ease when a vertical change in elevation is present. For those with disabilities, curb edges can be hazardous and requirements are put in place to help prevent dangerous situations such as people falling out of wheelchairs, or while using a cane or walker.
