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

  • We constructed a new sidewalk on the south side of the S. Frontage Rd. between just east of Louisiana Ave. and Xenwood Ave. to meet ADA standards. The sidewalk connected to the existing trail at the Camp Savage Historical Marker.
  • We also added a 10-foot-wide walkway along Dakota Ave. (under the Hwy 13/Dakota Ave. bridge) between the north and south frontage roads.
