ADA sidewalk accessibility plan
Hennepin County has developed a plan to make county roads more accessible, as outlined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The plan specifically addresses county policies and programs that relate to ADA. The goal of this project is to eliminate all barriers (including utility poles, fire hydrants and signs) within the sidewalk and make it easier for everyone to cross at intersections and crosswalks.
During the process of creating the plan, the county reviewed inventory, took input from the public and evaluated problematic areas. Now, the county is prioritizing and scheduling maintenance to be completed as soon as possible.
The county map below shows the location of where improvements will be made soon. Contact the transition plan engineer for a list of other planned projects related to pedestrian accessibility.
