City's ADA Sidewalk Repair Project Surpasses 26,000 Feet
The City of Pensacola's Public Works and Facilities Department has repaired approximately 26,940 linear feet of sidewalk and installed 463 curb ramps as part of the city's Americans with Disabilities Act Sidewalk Assessment.
The city completed an ADA Sidewalk Assessment in 2017 to evaluate existing sidewalks for ADA deficiencies, identifying approximately 28,100 linear feet of sidewalks and another 2,021 new curb ramps needed in order to achieve an acceptable level of ADA compliance.
"Sidewalks are such an important part of any community, and I'm excited to see sidewalks in the City of Pensacola become more accessible for all of our residents and visitors," Mayor Grover Robinson said. "We are committed to continuing these ADA sidewalk repairs to create a more accessible, walkable Pensacola."
Sidewalk repair projects were also prioritized in the survey to create a master sidewalk improvement project list, which is available on the city's website.
The targeted completion date for the repairs identified in the ADA Sidewalk Assessment is the end of 2023.To view the sidewalk priority list and an interactive map, click here.
