You’ve got a Question, the City of Redwood City has the Answer

Q: Why is my neighborhood getting handicap curbs?

A: As outlined in our Budget Blog Series, a $3.2 million Roadway Pavement Management project has enabled the City of Redwood City to resurface roads to prolong their useful life and restore them after a recent sewer main improvement project. To view maps of these roads go here.

This is a locally and state funded project where federal law requires the installation of curb ramps when resurfacing the roads, to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The City is installing 124 curb ramps on corners where they are not currently present. To view an interactive map of the areas where this work is taking place go here.

Q: I read your blog post about the Redwood City Police Department’s community engagement efforts and I am now interested in Coffee with the Cops. When are these events?

A: We are so glad you are interested in Coffee with the Cops! These events occur about twice a month at various locations around Redwood City. Holding Coffee with the Cops at different locations ensures that your neighborhood will have a chance to easily participate. These events are held on different days of the week at various times to work with everyone’s schedules. For more details on Coffee with the Cops, including dates, check out our city calendar here.
