The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) has implemented a Service Request Center for DC residents and businesses to request repair services for local streets, alleys, and sidewalks including curb and gutter. With this program, DDOT’s goal is to make DC a city where any trip can be taken on foot safely and comfortably, and where roadways equally serve pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users and motorists.
Fort Myer is responsible for the rehabilitation of sidewalks including curb and gutter, curb/wheelchair ramps, driveways and alley entrances at various local DC locations, as directed by DDOT, through task orders issued during this 5 year option contract term.
Two of the key initiatives of the Service Request Center is to prevent the possibility of injury to the public due to inadequate sidewalks and to construct wheelchair and bicycle ramps to meet the regulations established by the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). Many of these wheelchair ramps are constructed in areas that were previously not handicap accessible.
Currently, this is the largest IDIQ contract Fort Myer’s has with DDOT which is sustained by 13-15 crews including subcontractors on a weekly basis.
