In 2014, the ADA Streets & Sidewalk Transition Plan identified pedestrian access ramps in need of reconstruction, required by the U.S. Department of Justice’s ADA Standards for Accessible Design. The City has applied for and been awarded Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding, administered by the County of Orange, for Americans with Disabilities (ADA) Access improvements to the City’s pedestrian access ramps.
At its meeting on May 17, 2016, the City Council awarded a contract in the amount of $204,350 to CJ Concrete Construction of Santa Fe Springs, California, for construction services for the CDBG ADA Ramp Construction Project, Phase I, City Project No. ST-341.
