The ADA Curb Ramp Program is dedicated to providing safe and accessible travel routes for people of varying abilities in the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, KS. The Public Works Department constructs new curb ramps and upgrades existing ones each year to make sidewalks and streets more accessible and to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Requesting Installation or Upgrade of a Curb Ramp
To request the installation or upgrade of a curb ramp in a particular area, fill out and submit the Curb Ramp Request Form(DOC, 175KB) to the Unified Government Department of Public Works:
- Call (913) 573-5700
- Fax to (913) 573-5727
- Mail to 701 N 7th St, Suite 712, Kansas City, KS, 66101
Priority will be given to locations that complete an accessible route for specific individuals in need or that provide improved access to government offices and facilities, transportation, places of public accommodation, or employers. However, the implementation of requests depends on project funding and feasibility. Other factors being equal, requests are evaluated on a first-come, first-served basis. Construction of or upgrades to curb ramps may be scheduled in conjunction with other street or sidewalk improvement projects. Please note that curb ramps are not guaranteed to be constructed or upgraded at any location.
The curb ramp request program is part of the Public Works Department’s Outreach and Participation program (see Public Outreach Plan(PDF, 234KB)). To learn more about ADA-related information and other services, you can also access the UG's Department of Human Services.
