CALISTOGA -- This city will construct or upgrade ramps at 10 intersections in Calistoga this summer so they comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, officials said Tuesday.

A total of 24 ramps will be constructed or upgraded at various locations on  Lincoln Avenue/Highway 29 in downtown and Foothill Boulevard/Highway 128, where there will be potential lane and shoulder closures.

The intersections along Foothill Boulevard are at Berry and Elm streets and Lincoln Avenue. The intersections along Lincoln Avenue include Myrtle, Cedar, Washington, Stevenson, and Lake streets, Fair Way, and Wappo Avenue.

Ahmad Rahimi, Caltrans project manager, said at Tuesday’s city council meeting that no demolition work may begin before 9 a.m. and that access to driveways is to remain open at all times.

Construction is expected to be complete by the end of the year.

Rahimi confirmed Mayor Chris Canning's query that the ramps will not be yellow, but instead a reddish, or maroon color.
