Curb Ramps

Curb ramps are located at intersections to facilitate wheelchair, bicycle, and pedestrian street crossings. Curb ramps are sloped areas, typically located on corners at intersections that provide access from the street grade to the sidewalk. Guidance is provided in the Right-of-Way Improvements Manual.

To meet the goals of the Pedestrian Master Plan, curb ramps must be designed and installed to provide access from the street to the sidewalk for all people including those who use or have wheel chairs and other wheeled objects such as baby carriages or strollers, bicycles, grocery carts, luggage, and dollies, as well as for people with visual impairments.
