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 ramps, truncated domes and accessible pedestrian signals.
MnDOT installs about 100 accessible pedestrian signals per year. The cost to install accessible pedestrian signals at a traditional intersection with four crosswalks is about $15,000. MnDOT operates 1,179 signals statewide, 319 of them are accessible pedestrian signals. Read about MnDOT's transition plan to comply with the ADA.
