The Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kansas is dedicated to providing safe and accessible routes of travel in our community for people of varying abilities. 

Each year, the Public Works Department constructs new curb ramps and upgrades existing curb ramps to make sidewalks and streets more accessible and to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  

As part of its Curb Ramp and Sidewalk Improvement Program, the Public Works Department accepts requests from persons with disabilities to construct or upgrade curb ramps at specific locations and endeavors to prioritize those requests for the earliest feasible construction. 

To request the installation or upgrade of a curb ramp at a specific location, please click here for a Curb Ramp Request Form.  You may submit the form by fax, mail, email, or phone call to the UG’s Curb Ramp Coordinator:

Tim Nick
(913) 573-5700 or fax 913-573-5727
tnick@wycokck.org  
Unified Government of WyCo/KCK,
Department of Public Works
701 North 7th Street, Room 712
Kansas City, KS  66101

Priority will be given to locations that complete an accessible route for specific individuals in need or that give improved access to government offices and facilities, transportation, places of public accommodation, or employers.

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.  There is no guarantee that curb ramps will be constructed or upgraded at any specific location. 

The curb ramp request program is one part of the Public Works Department’s outreach and participation program.
