We have been 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 brought up by 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.
These improvements will be realized through various curb ramp improvement projects around the state, just like the projects in Eastern Oregon. The number of projected curb ramp improvements in each ODOT region through the year 2032 is shown on the graphic below. In all, the ADA Program aims to improve curb ramps according to this schedule:
7,770 improved ramps by the end of 2022.
11,959 improved ramps by the end of 2027.
6,642 improved ramps by the end of 2032.
See our progress!
