2020 ADA and Sidewalk Improvements Project

ADA

The 2020 Cody Sidewalk and Pedestrian Ramp Improvements Project is funded by a WYDOT Transportation Alternative Program (TAP) grant and the City of Cody. This project will provide many transportation improvements in Cody; the primary focus will be to improve safety and mobility around Cody Middle School, Cody High School, and Eastside Elementary School.

The project team has met with the school principals and staff to discuss site-specific concerns at each location, as well as develop ideas to address issues. The project goals are to: improve safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, children, and others in the vicinity of the schools; and provide non-vehicular connectivity to the surrounding neighborhoods, community amenities, and businesses.

The Cody Middle School improvements will: complete the sidewalk along the south side of Cougar Avenue; replace and upgrade non-compliant ADA pedestrian ramps; and improve the existing crosswalk. The project team is evaluating the addition of “bulb outs” at the front crosswalk on Cougar Avenue to increase pedestrian visibility and shorten the walking distance at the crosswalk. Additional safety improvements in the area could also include some type of pedestrian or school zone flashing lights, such as a RRFB (Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon) or school speed zone. The proposed improvements around the Cody Middle School are shown on Figure 1.

The Cody High School improvements will focus on: improvement of pedestrian and crosswalk safety at the intersection of 9th Street and Beck Avenue; and replacement and upgrade of non-compliant ADA pedestrian ramps along 10th Street. The project team is evaluating the addition of “bulb outs” at the intersection of 9th Street and Beck Avenue that will increase pedestrian visibility and shorten the walking distance at the crosswalk. The proposed improvements around the Cody High School are shown on Figure 2.

The Eastside Elementary School improvements will focus on: improvement of pedestrian and crosswalk safety at the intersection of 17th Street and Salsbury Avenue, as well as the adjacent drop-off area north of the intersection; and replacement and upgrade of non-compliant ADA pedestrian ramps along 17th Street. The proposed improvements around the Eastside Elementary School are shown on Figure 3.

The project team is seeking input on the proposed improvements and would appreciate your time in taking a short survey using the link below to provide feedback on the project.
