South Bend to make intersections ADA compliant

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- South Bend is becoming a little safer. The Board of Public Works approved a plan to revamp 36 intersections that aren't complying with ADA regulations.

Interim City Attorney Aladean Derose gave a presentation at the County City Building Tuesday and talked about the areas of town that need work.

It is the first time the city's come up with an actual plan to get into compliance.

"What is current today, may not be current in 2020. So we did a lot of sidewalk repair and a lot of sidewalk rehabilitation 10 years ago and what we did then is now not compliant," said DeRose.

The new ADA standards call for raised bumps on crosswalk ramps. They also have to be a different color than sidewalks.
