The Idaho Department of Transportation has released the Transition Plan for ADA Compliance for curb ramps. In other words, they have a plan for making sidewalk ramps across the state of Idaho that are on state routes (eg Yellowstone Highway or Broadway in Idaho Falls) handicapped accessible.

If you use a stroller, a wheelchair, a power scooter, a bicycle, or even just walk on the sidewalks, this plan is all about when the curb ramps become easier to use. ITD is taking public comment through August 5, 2011, so review the report today.

Note: This is all about state route sidewalks. If you have concerns about other sidewalk accessibility issues, contact your city. For issues in Idaho Falls, please contact me, also. I am collecting info about sidewalk accessibility issues there.

Get the ITD report.
