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

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.
