Rocky Hill Pedestrian Improvements Project
Completed in May 2020, the Rocky Hill Pedestrian Improvements Project has created an accessible path of travel along Rocky Hill Road. This project was first brought the ADA Advisory's attention in 2017 by a resident living nearby, and due to its proximity to Markham Elementary School, and the heavy traffic in the area, the project was prioritized for completion by the Committee.
Phase I of the project, completed in February 2019, included the installation of 6 curb ramps at the intersections of Markham Avenue, Highland Avenue, and Lomita Avenue. The following year, the Committee approved to proceed with Phase II, which included the remaining 10 curbs at the intersections of Manzanita Drive, Novato Drive, and Gable Avenue.
The 2019 Accessible Pedestrian Signal Project
In the spring of 2019, the ADA Advisory Committee approved to install accessible pedestrian signals at three major intersections. Installation of the accessible pedestrian signals at the intersections of Allison Drive at Ulatis Drive, Nut Tree Parkway at Nut Tree Road, and Bel Air Drive at Nut Tree Road was quickly completed and now provides pedestrians with a safer access to schools, shopping, and public transportation facilities.
