Accessibility and state highway projects
All MnDOT projects--both new construction and rehabilitation projects--must include evaluation to ensure compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Components can include, but are not limited to, adding curb cuts, truncated domes and accessible pedestrian signals. Read about MnDOT's transition plan to comply with the ADA.
Specifics for this project
After completion, this new section of road will have 5-foot paved shoulders which will be much more accommodating to pedestrians and bikers.
