Region 1 ADA Curb Ramp Upgrades – City of Sandy

Construction Phase

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


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


Impacts

Construction Impacts

Impacts expected week of August 8, 2022:

Sidewalk curb ramp removal and replacement is expected the week of August 8 at the following locations:

  • NW corner of Beers Avenue and Pioneer Boulevard 
  • SE corner of Scales Avenue and Proctor Boulevard 
  • NW corner of Shelley Avenue and Pioneer Boulevard
  • NE corner of Smith Avenue and Proctor Boulevard 
  • NE corner of Hoffman Ave and Pioneer Boulevard

Expect daytime shoulder closures on U.S. 26 and adjacent side streets and sidewalk closures with pedestrian detours. 

____________________________________________________________________


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

Work is expected to take place during the day, unless a temporary lane closure on a highway is required. In this case, work may take 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 is currently in construction.

About

We are replacing existing, non-compliant sidewalk curb ramps along U.S. 26 between Royal Lane and Revenue Avenue. Curb ramps will be 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 resumed in spring 2022.​ Generally, it takes 1-2 weeks to complete work on an individual corner, with construction on several corners happening concurrently. However, only one corner per intersection will be 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 (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.
