N Y C D O T construction workers laying fresh concrete to build a new sidewalk corner.

Program Progress

NYC DOT is committed to the successful implementation of this program and towards this goal is addressing pedestrian ramp installations and upgrades through the following efforts:

  • When streets are resurfaced;
  • During the implementation of Street Improvement Projects;
  • When addressing sidewalk defects (Prior Notice Contracts);
  • As part of capital projects;
  • Through a formalized complaint process.

Beyond these efforts, NYCDOT is also monitoring the work performed by private utilities, developers and contractors working on behalf of other City agencies.




Corners classified as “Constructed” refer to locations that were constructed since July 2017.

Corners classified as “Planned Construction” refer to locations that were recently resurfaced and are undergoing assessment and planning, or are part of other projects that trigger pedestrian ramp work.

Corners classified as “Not Assigned” have not been resurfaced since July 2017.

Corners classified as “Not Required” are locations where an upgrade or installation is not required.

A complex corner requires the development of a unique design drawing prior to installation or upgrade of a pedestrian ramp due to existing site conditions and therefore may take longer to construct.

The term corner refers to intersection corners (space on the sidewalk at the intersection of two streets), midblocks (a crossing that is not at an intersection, usually in between two streets), tops of T-shaped intersections, medians or islands (a small section of raised concrete in the street). A corner can have one or more ramps.

Resurfacing stretches are updated periodically based on available data.

Some locations that have been included may be outside of DOT’s jurisdiction.
