WHAT IS IT? Work at the corner of Third and Center streets in Hannibal was underway Tuesday morning in preparation for the installation of an ADA-compliant sidewalk ramp on the intersection’s southeast corner.

While most of the downtown improvement project’s work has been focused on North Main Street in recent months, on Tuesday morning a small part of the project was taking place on the southeast corner of the Third and Center street intersection.
According to Brian Chaplin, project manager for the city, a ramp compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act regulations was being installed at the location.
“We’re making it ADA (compliant) to match the other three intersections in this block,” he said.
ADA-compliant ramps were already in place at the Third and Center intersection’s other three corners.
“That’s just part of doing an overlay anywhere,” said Chaplin. “It’s ADA required that you have all your intersections with ADA ramps, so that’s what we’re doing.”
It was not the only spot where new ramps were being installed.
“We’re also finishing up a few ADA ramps on the south end of Main to get those up to code,” said Chaplin.
