The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed to enforce improvements of public commodities to fill the gaps in our nation's civil rights inequalities for people with disabilities. Public pedestrian pathways are required by federal and state law to comply with ADA guidelines to allow ease of access to individuals with disabilities. Many existing sidewalks and pedestrian pathways have been renovated and modernized to comply with these ADA guidelines. This paper outlines the preconstruction plan for a rehabilitation project of a problematic pedestrian pathway on the campus of California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, and highlights the need for an ADA compliant improvement though the affected area. The project provides a preconstruction plan of the proposed scope of work which includes, but is not limited to, a preliminary design, critical path schedule, equipment and material quantity take-off, and an initial cost estimate. The purpose of this paper and corresponding preconstruction plan is to bring awareness to this unsafe pedestrian pathway on campus in hopes this project can be continued into the final design phase and then eventually the construction phase.
