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
The Lift Bridge will be converted to a bicycle/pedestrian facility that will accommodate all users and will include features such as pedestrian ramps, gate arms, audio and visual systems that allow access throughout the lift bridge, the concourse leading up to the bridge and the trails leading into Wisconsin.
