NEW ADA RAMPS TO BE INSTALLED THROUGHOUT WESTFIELD
Westfield, IN- Some of Westfield’s sidewalks are about to get a makeover thanks to funding through a grant.
Over the next four months, around 40 new ADA-compliant ramps will be installed throughout the city.
The construction is being paid largely through an INDOT and Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization grant, with a majority of the construction cost being covered by the grant and the additional cost being picked up by the city.
The work is designed to make Westfield’s pedestrian areas more accessible to all residents and visitors. The project is also part of the Safe Routes to Schools for Oak Trace Elementary School.
Construction will begin the first week of April and continue through July. Some sidewalks may be closed up to 10 days during construction.
