Region 1 ADA Curb Ramp Upgrades – City of Sandy

Project Completed

Region 1: Portland metro and Hood River County (Sandy, Clackamas)


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​We brought sidewalk curb ramps into compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility standards on U.S. 26 in Sandy. 


Impacts

Construction Impacts

The contractor has completed the work on U.S. 26 (Proctor Boulevard and Pioneer Boulevard).
____________________________________________________________________

​This work caused intermittent lane, shoulder and sidewalk closures on U.S. 26 and on intersecting local streets. All roads remained open. We provided ADA-accessible pedestrian detours around the work zones and maintained access for customers of adjacent businesses. ​Some SAM stops were temporarily closed or relocated; this was communicated at the affected bus stops and on ci.sandy.or.us/transit. On-street parking in some areas was temporarily removed and some spaces were permanently removed. We coordinated with affected property and business owners as needed.

Work took place during the day, unless a temporary lane closure on a highway was required. In this case, work may have taken place at night to minimize traffic impacts. For any noise-related concerns associated with any nighttime work, contact the 24/7 noise hotline at (503) 412-2349.

Schedule

Phase 1 construction was completed in August 2021. Phase 2 was completed in December 2022.

About

We replaced existing, non-compliant sidewalk curb ramps along U.S. 26 between Royal Lane and Revenue Avenue. Curb ramps were constructed at non-signalized intersections on both sections of the one-way couplet (Proctor Boulevard and Pioneer Boulevard).

Phase 1 work began in March 2021 and wrapped in August 2021. Phase 2 work began in May 2022 and wrapped in December 2022.​ Generally, it took 1-2 weeks to complete work on an individual corner, with construction on several corners happening concurrently. However, only one corner per intersection was under construction at a time.

The ODOT ADA PROGRAM is working to bring more than 25,000 curb ramps throughout Oregon into compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. The effort was launched in response to a formal complaint from the Association of Oregon Centers for Independent Living (AOCIL). Together we reached an agreement to improve curb ramps and pedestrian signals along all state highways. We are committed to new standards for accessible routes through work zones, outreach and addressing public concerns. Everyone who uses sidewalks along our highways will benefit from this commitment and the improvements we make to the curb ramps.
