Whose bright idea was it to arrange these wheelchair access ramps diagonal to each other on the Mass Ave island near Union Station? This is not easy for the disabled in wheelchairs, as they must either negotiate the ramps in an “S” pattern, or cross the steep sides of the ramp at an angle, or as I have more often seen, just skip the island altogether and go around it, rocketing across Mass Ave against traffic coming up from 1st St NE. None of these options are safe, convenient, or sensible.
Is this the kind of thing for which I should be submitting a service request?
