Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) 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
This segment of I-35E is part of the Better Roads Program, which aims to significantly improve state highway pavement condition, including MnPASS expansion and shoulder hardening for transit. The Better Roads program also increases safety and ADA accessibility while improving infrastructure such as drainage facilities and exploring innovative engineering and delivery techniques in order to get the most for the taxpayer dollar.
