City of Opelika working to make city ADA compliant


Special to
Opelika Observer
From the
City of Opelika

Beginning late this week, crews will begin implementing American with Disabilities Act (ADA) Compliance work on sidewalks and intersections in the downtown area. They will start with improvements at South 9th Street and Avenue B.
About a year ago, the City of Opelika began working on a long-term ADA self-evaluation/transition plan. We set out to become the safest, most business and family-friendly city in America by 2023. As a part of this plan, all city sidewalks, buildings, programs and services must become ADA compliant.
This work will continue during the next few months. There will be some road closures in the process. We appreciate your patience while we make ADA improvements around the city. For more information, contact City of Opelika ADA Compliance Officer Kevin Rice at 334-705-2083 or
