ODOT Road Improvements in Bend Comply With ADA


ODOT is working on all kinds of improvements to roads in the area. But recently you may have seen crews replacing streetlights on 3rd and Revere. Peter Murphy with ODOT says the lights and poles have seen their better days, and regulations from the Americans with Disabilities Act, require even more improvements: “They got old and the poles needed to be moved to comply with ADA and what happens is when you start working on a project or anything else and you renovate it you have to take it into compliance the new ADA regulations so once you get into it; then you have to start doing the other things."   The project includes three locations total, with two others being along Greenwood Avenue. "Actually, it combines all three of them into one project so we're making it better and easier to transit through there so and putting some new conduit and wires in." The funding comes from ODOT, and some from federal dollars as well, because Highway 20 is also a federal highway.
