Old Town - ADA Ramp Improvement Project

A series of roadway improvements are underway in Old Town. The work includes replacing crosswalks, installing upgraded ADA ramps, and applying a pavement preservation treatment to the roadways. The work is expected to be complete in late October and will be done in four phases:

Timeline

Late Summer 2022:

Phase One and Two: Complete

The first two phases of the ADA Ramp Improvement Project are complete. Crews installed more than 30 ramps in the project area in July, and crosswalk construction at five Old Town intersections wrapped up in August. New scupper plates (drainage structures) are currently being installed throughout the project area.

Newly installed and upgraded ADA Ramps in Old Town complete the first of a four-phase project that will improve pedestrian accessibility.

Phase Three: Micro Seal Treatment

The third phase of the project will be the application of a micro seal treatment to streets adjacent to the work area. The micro seal pavement treatment helps extend the life of asphalt streets and reduces maintenance costs. This work is expected to take two days to complete. Please see the micro seal schedule below.

Phase Four: Crosswalk Stamping

The newly constructed crosswalks will be stamped with a brick pattern and painted with an acrylic epoxy coating– the result is a decorative treatment that ultimately extends the life of the asphalt. This work is expected to take two weeks to complete.

Precautions

To help minimize disruptions to businesses, work will take place early morning, Monday - Friday between the hours of 2 a.m. to 11 a.m. Business and pedestrian access will be maintained during construction. Expect full closures of most intersections during construction; intersections will be reopened daily by 11 a.m.

Please use caution, follow detour signs, and plan ahead to avoid delays. Thank you for your patience during construction.
