VDOT survey on needed curb cuts

Cyclists often use curb cuts/ramps where trails intersect roads. Occasionally cyclists ride on the sidewalk which is very difficult without a curb cut. We all likely know locations where a curb cut is needed. The VDOT Curb Cut Survey is a chance for residents to identify missing curb cuts or curb cuts needing repairs.
Example of a poorly constructed and maintained curb cut.
In collaboration with the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services, VDOT is conducting a survey of non-compliant ADA curb-cuts, locations where curb-cuts need to be installed or locations that are damaged and need to be fixed. VDOT wants to ensure compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and needs your assistance to set priorities for both fixing problem areas and building new/additional curb-cuts.

 VDOT will concentrate, first, on the urbanized areas of Tidewater, Richmond and Northern Virginia. If you live in one of these areas, please assist us by identifying the issues and answering the following questions.

*Please note that some locations may be the responsibility of a City or County government instead of VDOT. If this is the case, your comments will be forwarded to the appropriate jurisdiction.
