BRILC staff corrects curb cuts
Blue Ridge Independent Living Center (BRILC) in Roanoke not only advocates for individual consumers, but for the community at large. A friend of BRILC noticed a new sidewalk being constructed missing one crucial element - curb cuts. He notified BRILC’s Community Services Manager Marc Davis, who went to the community to investigate.
Marc noticed the lack of curb cuts stretched for about a half-mile. He took some measurements and a few pictures, then made a few phone calls and emailed the company installing the new sidewalk. Marc reminded them of the need for curb cuts on all new sidewalk projects.
After a few days, Marc rode back out to the community. He was pleased to see that corrections were being made to install the curb cuts properly. Marc happily notified the friend that had reported the sidewalk, who was happy to hear that by reporting his observation, the company corrected the problem.
