About the Project

The purpose of this project is to retrofit, repair, replace or install sidewalk ramps within VDOT right of way throughout the Northern Virginia District in order to comply with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  

Across the state, VDOT has reviewed many of the existing sidewalk ramps that do not meet current ADA standards. These ramps have been categorized and prioritized based on their existing condition, noting their specific deficiencies.

These "before" and "after" photos provide an example of the work being done for this project.

Traffic Impacts

Most work will take place within the sidewalk and a shoulder/parking lane weekdays between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.  Depending on the roadway and intersection, occasionally a lane closure may be necessary.
