In 2017, ODOT began work to bring 25,000+ curb ramps into compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards over the next fifteen years.
Curb Ramp Improvement Schedule
2018 - 2022
2023 - 2027
2028 - 2032
The order of improvements is based on community need and available resources. However, over the course of the program, the following number of estimated ramps will be completed in each ODOT region:
Region 1: 8,000+
Region 2: 9,000+
Region 3: 3,000+
Region 4: 2,000+
Region 5: 3,000+
Providing an accessible transportation system is one of seven areas of ODOT’s Accessibility Program. Other elements range from access to buildings to employment opportunities.
People with disabilities and everyone who uses sidewalks along the state transportation system will benefit from:
- Upgrades to existing curb ramps and pedestrian signals
- New ADA-compliant curb ramps and pedestrian signals where there are none currently
- ADA-compliant curb ramps and pedestrian signals in all future ODOT projects
