Salem County Improves Accessibility for Disabled Citizens

Posted:
SALEM – Salem County will be home to new concrete curb ramps, courtesy of the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) funding.
Deputy Freeholder Director, Ben Laury, announced that the new ramps are being installed to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The plan is to install 34 new ramps which will improve accessibility for disabled citizens.
“These curb ramps are a welcome addition for all citizens, especially for our impaired citizens as it aids in their independence and ability to safely reach their destinations,” said Laury.
The ramps will be installed at several locations, including Elmer, Woodstown, Carney’s Point, Oldmans Township, and Penns Grove.
“This funding allows us to increase the number of our roads to become accessible public right-of-ways, enhancing the lives of many individuals who depend on easy transitioning from sidewalks to the streets without the need of assistance,” said Laury.
