RITZVILLE – The city will be putting in 20 handicap-accessible ramps along Main Street this summer.
Mayor Gary Cook said the Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant ramps, which cost about $5,000 each, are being paid for by Transportation Improvement Board funds.
“As a rule, our portion of it is 5-10%,” Cook said. “We maintain a six-year, TIB [Transportation Improvement Board] plan, and each year we take the No. 1 priority and apply to the state for funding. We’ll do the ramps this summer, and next year pave the road with slurry and crack seal.”
