SIDEWALK FRAMING — A hardworking crew with Yandell’s Construction Company was busy this morning assembling the framework to lay new handicap-accessible sidewalks at the corner of Second Street and East Florida Avenue in  Union City. The city is updating all sidewalks with Americans with Disabilities Act-approved wheelchair-accessible curb ramps with bright yellow strips of detectable warnings for those with vision impairments. The detectable warnings help distinguish sidewalk from sloped curb ramps and the safety of the sidewalk from the street. The work to upgrade the curbs and new sidewalks will remove damage from broken sidewalks due to wear and tear and tree roots, making them much safer for residents.
