PUBLIC RIGHT-OF-WAY ACCESSIBILITY PROGRAM
The Public Works Department is committed to constructing improvements that improve access on our streets for all users and that are in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Citizen Request Program
The citizen request program allows citizens to request improvements in the public right-of-way (curbs, sidewalks, public parking) that will improve access for the community. To request improvements outside of the City right-of-way please see the City of Sacramento Office of Civil Rights Contact Information webpage.
Examples of public right-of-way improvements requested can include but are not limited to:
- Curb Ramps - this can include improvements such as reducing existing slopes or adding detectable warning tiles.
- Sidewalks - this can include improvements such as repairing cracks in the sidewalk that make it difficult to travel over or addressing tree roots or bushes protruding into the walkway.
- Audible Pedestrian Signal Installation - these improvements provide audible sounds at traffic signals so visually impaired pedestrians know when it’s safe to cross the street.
- Signalized intersection improvements - these improvements can include relocating pedestrian push buttons so they’re easier to reach, or re-aligning the crossings at an intersection.
To make a citizen request, submit the ADA Request Form, call 916-808-8300, or contact us by email.
