St. Louis Cty Seeks Input To Make Roads + Sidewalks More Accessible
St. Louis County is seeking input from the general public on ways that they can make our local roads and sidewalks more accessible to those who have disabilities. Two meetings have been scheduled to receive feedback for the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan.
All told, St. Louis County is home to 70 miles of sidewalks, 1,510 pedestrian curb ramps, and 40 traffic control signs. The aim of this plan being developed by the Public Works Department is to ensure that all of these pedestrian facilities are accesible for everyone.
Officially known as the "Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan for County Roadway Public Right-of-Way," the plan includes an evaluation - conducted by county engineers - of pedestrian facilities within the county roadway public right-of-way, and details how St. Louis County will ensure all of those facilities are accessible to all individuals. The document will supplement and expand St. Louis County's existing ADA Compliance Certification.
Here are the dates, times, and locations of the two scheduled meetings:
- Tuesday, July 30 - 6:00 PM: St. Louis County Public Works Office - Pike Lake (4784 Midway Road)
- Thursday, August 8 - 6:00 PM: St. Louis County Public Works Office - Virginia (7823 Highway 135)
