My overall point is that we're making such a big deal about crosswalks, we should think about street design overall and use the opporutnity to come up with potentially better alternativs, that could be cheaper in the long run.

It's stupid they're wasting so much money on these stupid handicap ramps when the handicap don't even use them. The handicapped use the streets to get around in their wheelchairs and will continue to do so even when they've repaved all of the ramps. This money would be better spent on schools.
Can you explain why they are only doing the numbered streets along Oregon and not the side streets? Don't those have to be ADA compliant also?
Why the number streets only? I can only guess, but I think they are repaving the numbers streets this summer. This is why the small side streets are getting skipped(For now).
Like I said, its a mess that, like the drinking age, they can not do anything about. The other mess? The street signs issue that keeps changing before they can even finish putting the new signs up.
They've just completed the same work near the Amtrak station in Wilmington, Delaware. The edges of the ramps were perfectly flush with the asphalt and no filler was needed. And this is Wilmington we're talking about.
Well I know a guy who is in paving business and provides best paving material like paving bricks, paving slabs, granite, cobbles and natural stone.
