Pedestrian Access Curb Ramps

CGA was retained by the City of Ames to provide detailed survey and design for pedestrian ramps at twelve intersections in a residential neighborhood in south Ames.  The City of Ames was altering the street through these intersections which triggered a need to take an in depth look at the pedestrian ramps and make sure they are in compliance with current standards.  In all, 33 ramps were redesigned.

CGA collected detailed survey information of the 33 ramps in a two day time frame.  Detailed design was completed in a seven day period to meet the City's schedule.  The Pedestrian Ramp Improvements are part of a larger, City-led maintenance effort.  The plan sheets developed for the pedestrian ramps will be incorporated into those of the larger project.

The pedestrian ramps were designed according to current SUDAS Chapter 12 Design Standards along with the City of Ames Supplemental Specifications.  Along with the plans, point tables were provided detailing the grades and distances.  Different colors were used on the plans to designate the different parts of each pedestrian ramp.
