Lodi City Council reviews city’s compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act
Children play at Emerson Park in Lodi on Tuesday, July 31, 2012. The city of Lodi installed a rubberized surface at the park on the corner of Elm and Hutchins streets to help those with disabilities use the playground. It is part of the city’s effort to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Children in wheelchairs can easily roll on the rubberized surface at Emerson Park to get to playground equipment. While running errands or catching the bus, people in wheelchairs can use ramps to quickly cross Central Avenue at Lodi Avenue. And blind residents can depend on the loud chirps at some intersections on Kettleman Lane and Lodi Avenue to know when it is safe to cross.
All of these improvements are part of the city of Lodi's effort to make upgrades throughout the city to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
