Not exactly the picutre of efficiency, the ADA sidewalk work that began last Spring in Society Hill is on hold, and there’s a chance the work will have to go to rebid.
When residents noticed last year that the new ADA-compliant ramps being installed in their neighborhood weren’t the agreed-upon color, work halted and a historic review was commissioned.
The ramps are supposed to match the brick facades and sidewalks of the historic neighborhood, but are instead an orange-y color.
A new design with more brickwork has been agreed upon, PlanPhilly reports, but because of that, C. Abbonizio Contractors Inc., has the right to re-negotiate the project. And if things don’t work out there, the project goes to re-bid. Work could resume in six weeks or in Spring 2013.
