We replaced existing, non-compliant sidewalk curb ramps along OR 8 (Adair and Baseline/Pacific streets) in Cornelius and the eastern end of Forest Grove. Curb ramps at 13 non-signalized intersections on both sections of the one-way couplet from N. 17th Avenue to Yew Street.

Construction began in January 2021 and continued through summer 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 in order to better maintain access to nearby businesses and services.
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.
