Getting around downtown Jefferson City hasn't been easy for B.J. Davis. He feels the city is doing a good job replacing broken ramps and doesn't blame the city for not making it more accessible.
"Its a reflection on people not knowing," Davis said.
Jefferson City's project to replace old ramps is an effort to eliminate tripping hazards.
"I mean, the intersections were dangerous," Lara McClure, access specialist, said.
McClure said the new ramps should cut down on accidents, but Davis thinks businesses can also help make the city more accessible.
"There can be a lot more done with door openings, automatic doors would be a great thing for a lot of businesses to please look into," Davis said.
The city is almost completely done installing the new ramps. The new ramps are made of ceramic tiles and set in concrete. The city will spend more than $59,000 replacing the ramps.
