SUMMARY:

                                          

The Engineering Division of Pensacola Public Works and Facilities Department has been working to repair City-owned sidewalks and ADA ramps based on data received from the Mott MacDonald ADA Sidewalk Survey published August 24, 2017.  The meta scores provided in the survey indicate the general condition of the sidewalks and ramps and a lower meta score represents a greater degree of disrepair and non-compliance.  The sidewalks and ramps were prioritized according to these scores and project lists were subsequently developed to address the identified 28,100 feet of sidewalk and 2021 ramps.

 

The City is prioritizing these projects by both the meta score (below 75) in the sidewalk survey and geographic location to take advantage of economies of scale with contactor pricing.  The current sidewalk projects are primarily located on the west side of the city and the current plan is to work geographically from west to east addressing the sidewalks ramps with the lowest meta scores first.  The Engineering Division also works closely with the City’s GIS division to manage the survey data, layout project areas, and keep an active inventory of sidewalks and ramps that have been repaired.  Occasionally, some sections of sidewalk or ramps are found to be too costly to repair under the current project scope due to elevation changes, trees, utility conflicts, etc. and will be addressed individually in the future as standalone projects.

 

To date, three projects been substantially completed for 2018 and the first phase of 2019 is scheduled to start in April 2019.  These four projects include the repair/replacement of approx. 6217 linear feet of sidewalk and 147 ADA ramps.  The total number of linear feet of sidewalk and numbers of curb ramps repaired per project are listed below and numbers for FY2020-26 are estimated only.

2018 Phases 1-3                     4,393 feet of sidewalk                                          108 curb ramps

2019 Phases 1-3                     3,406 feet of sidewalk                                          118 curb ramps

2020 Phases 1-3                     5100* feet of sidewalk                     105* curb ramps

2021 Phases 1-3                     5100* feet of sidewalk                     105* curb ramps

2022 Phases 1-3                     5100* feet of sidewalk                     105* curb ramps

2023 Phases 1-2                     3300* feet of sidewalk                     70* curb ramps

2024 Phases 1-2                     1700* feet of sidewalk                     300* curb ramps

2025 Phases 1-2                     0*       feet of sidewalk                     600* curb ramps

2026 Phases 1-2                     0*       feet of sidewalk                     510* curb ramps

 

Total                                          28.100* feet of sidewalk                     2021* curb ramps

 

*estimated projections only based upon current construction costs
