Curb Ramp Process

April 22, 2008


The Denver Office of Disability Rights (DODR) is charged with conducting curb ramp reviews of all City and County of Denver owned properties, as well as non-owned properties supported or funded by the City and County of Denver. Compliance with accessibility laws is an ongoing process, and this year round Curb Ramp Program, which includes installation and repair, will ensure that Denver is working to maintain its compliant accessibility levels and identify current areas of non-compliance. We also respond to requests as they are received and attempt to install curb cuts on an "as needed" basis. The Mayor has made it a priority to make Denver one of the most accessible cities and this program is an integral part of the that goal!
Denver Curb Ramp Request Process
  1. Each citizen or family member requesting a curb ramp must call the Curb Ramp Request line (720.913.8491) and leave the requested/required information. Basic requirements are name, address, telephone number, and specific intersection or corner location of requested curb ramp.
  2. The DODR will contact each curb ramp requestor and inspect each location to ascertain severity of problem and determine curb ramp installation or repair needs.
  3. Annual funding or budget for curb ramp program can allocate funding for requests throughout the year as well as having a well established plan outlined in advance of areas that need attention and maintenance.
  4. Streets that are to be paved, areas of new construction, or streets undergoing maintenance fit the definition of "alteration" as defined in the ADA and ramp upgrades and installation that is independently funded outside the total allocation for the annual Curb Ramp Program.
