Description

the present curbcuts DO NOT acknowledge that a wheejchair user would be coming down the sidewalk towards the curb cut. The curbcut is ONLY designed for wheelchair users crossing the intersection straight on and therefore has a very dangerous slope for wheelers coming down the side walk from N Person. A new 12 to 1 slope could be installed by removing the next flat section of sidewalk on both sides of Pell prior to reaching the curb cut and a less dangerous slope would make the curbcut safe and in compliance with the ADA. And , YES I do use that route from N Person to N Bloodworth!
