The 2019 Adams County Sidewalk Replacement Program has contracted with Noraa Concrete Construction Corp to remove and replace the sidewalk and make infrastructure improvements from Lincoln to Washington along 55th Avenue. This pedestrian improvement project also includes installing new sidewalks and gutters, making drainage improvements, and paving shoulder areas to meet current Americans with Disabilities (ADA) specifications.
The sidewalk and new ramps will be wider and sloped for easier access. In addition, new sidewalks and gutters will be added where none presently exist. Lane closures and reduced speeds will be in place and signs will be present to safely guide motorists through the construction zone. Periodic closures will be approved by Adams County.
The 55th Avenue Improvement Project to install sidewalks and curb ramps and make roadway and drainage improvements is complete. The project began on Oct. 14 and was completed by Jan. 2, 2020. Sidewalks were installed where none existed, and new ramps were added at key intersections at Pearl, Pennsylvania, Logan, Lincoln and Washington. The project was designed to make infrastructure, right of way and accessibility upgrades for local businesses, and to meet current ADA compliance guidelines.
