The state is going to spend up to $2 billion to make improvements to accommodate people with handicaps.
What a concept.
California's work includes, according to the San Diego Union:
- Building about 10,000 new curb ramps.
- Improving about 50,000 existing curb ramps to meet recent changes in design requirements.
- Rebuilding a “considerable percentage” of the approximately 2,500 miles of sidewalk under Caltrans jurisdiction.
- Rebuilding pavement at crosswalks for a “considerable percentage” of the approximately 15,000 state highway intersections and installing audible crossing signals for the visually impaired.
Wonder just how compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act WisDOT is?
