Speakers and raised arrows on APS signals provide information about the intersection to pedestrians with hearing and visual impairment.

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

  • Constructing a pedestrian/bicycle underpass beneath Hwy 169 at West River Road. This structure aligns with the city of Champlin’s goal of a “walkable, bikeable city.”
  • Upgrade signals and pedestrian crossings to ADA standards at ramps along Hwy 169
