About the Project:

The work consists of bringing existing curb ramps into compliance with Public Rights of Way Accessibility Guidelines, or PROWAG** in various locations in Weld County.

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.

**Public Rights of Way Accessibility Guidelines. The Access Board is an independent federal agency that promotes equality for people with disabilities through leadership in accessible design and the development of accessibility guidelines and standards.

Work Schedule

  • Daytime work hours range from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, with possible lane closure restrictions TBD.
