U.S. 30 ADA Curb Ramp Upgrades

Design Phase

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

We are making sidewalk curb ramps safer on U.S. 30 (Cascade Avenue and Oak Street) in Hood River. We are bringing them up to the current standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). We will upgrade sidewalk corners from Mt. Adams Avenue to E 2nd Street and add a new ramp at some corners.


Construction Impacts

During construction, plan for temporary impacts to Cascade Avenue, Oak Street and nearby streets. Expect lane, shoulders, parking spaces and sidewalks to be closed for a short time. All roads will remain open. We will provide accessible paths around the work zones for people walking, biking and rolling. We will keep access open for customers of nearby businesses during business hours. No work will occur in the downtown area between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

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. ​


  • ​Design continues through summer 2024. 
  • Construction begins late 2024/early 2025 (weather allowing). 
  • No work between Memorial Day and Labor Day in downtown Hood River. 



We are improving sidewalk curb ramps at 17 intersections along U.S. 30 (Cascade Avenue and Oak Street) between Mt. Adams ​​Avenue and E 2nd Street to make them ADA-compliant. Improvements range from upgrading existing ramps to the addition of a second ramp at a corner, creating more accessible highway connections for all sidewalk users along Cascade Avenue and Oak Street.​​

Sidewalk curb ramp improvement locations at 17 intersections along U.S. 30 from Mt. Adams to E 2nd Street.

The ODOT ADA Program is upgrading over 25,000 curb ramps in Oregon. This is to make sure they follow ADA standards. We will upgrade curb ramps and pedestrian signals. We will provide accessible routes through work zones. We also are making extra efforts to talk to the public and address any concerns. Everyone who uses sidewalks along our highways will benefit from the improvements.
