City Completes Over 47,000 Feet of ADA Sidewalk Improvements
The City of Pensacola is continuing to complete sidewalk repairs and install ADA-compliant curb ramps, as part of the city's ongoing efforts to improve accessibility and walkability throughout Pensacola neighborhoods.
The City of Pensacola's Public Works & Facilities Department has repaired approximately 47,240 linear feet of sidewalk and installed 665 curb ramps since 2018 as part of the city's Americans with Disabilities Act Sidewalk Assessment, including some additional sidewalk repairs completed through other city revitalization projects.
The ADA Sidewalk Assessment was completed 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.
"We are continuing to work toward making the City of Pensacola a more walkable, accessible city for all of our residents and visitors," Mayor Grover Robinson said. "Sidewalks are a vital part of any thriving city, and I'm excited to see these repairs continuing to make our sidewalks ADA compliant and better connected for the Pensacola community."
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.
