Crosswalk to Nowhere

In an area of Cambridge MA surrounded by Harvard University buildings this crosswalk on Mount Auburn Street near Banks Street has a curb cut on one side (rear of Zero Arrow Street). The crosswalk leads to a curb with no access to the sidewalk. Persons who use wheelchairs must go to the corner of Mount Auburn Street with Banks Street where there is a curb ramp. Images captured on Sunday September 6, 2009 at about noon.

Unfortunately this is not the only example of Cambridge's failure to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Thanks Roy for documenting this one.
