Construction Under Way in Many Neighborhoods
Neighborhoods throughout New Albany are undergoing improvements that include minor street repair, street repaving, curb repair and curb ramp replacement. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the city is required to make improvements to curb ramps if streets are repaved. For this reason, residents may notice that some existing ramps will be removed and then replaced. Other ramps are being removed but not replaced, and still other new ramps will be installed where they currently do not exist. Any work performed related to curb ramps is being performed in strict compliance with the ADA. As these improvements occur, underground drains, irrigation lines and other features in the tree lawn strip will be carefully maintained and repaired if damaged. Once the improvements are complete, the area will be top soiled and reseeded with hydro-seed. If curb ramp construction is occurring adjacent to your home and you have additional questions, contact New Albany Public Service Director Mark Nemec (855.0076; email@example.com).
