The 2014 Citywide Curbe Ramps Improvements Project (WACOO7) (Project) will remove accessibility barriers to meet persons using wheelchairs or other personal assistance devices by reconstructing existing curbe ramps to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) slope and access requirements (title II of the ADA; Sections 1-10 of the ADA Accessiblity Guidelines). The Project also includes the installation of new pavement markings and traffic signs/posts as needed. The ADA-accessible curb ramps will be installed at 16 locations (Project locations) in the City of Elk Grove (City).
The proposed Project consists of improvements to existing curb, gutter, and sidewalk segments for the purpose of complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act and removing barriers that restrict the mobility of and accessibility to handicapped persons. Each of the Project locations has been previously improved and is located in existing City right-of-way along developed roadways in highly urbanized areas. All work will take place in existing City of Elk Grove right-of-way and the Project will not result in ground disturbance outside of the existing curb segments being replaced. As such, the Project will result in no expansion of use. This project is therefore exempt under CEQA Categorical Exemptions.
