What is a barrier in a pedestrian facility?

A barrier is something that prevents unhindered travel along a pedestrian facility within Everett’s right of way. Examples of barriers include sidewalk obstructions, such as utility poles or overgrown vegetation; cracked or uneven sidewalks; curb ramps that are missing or don’t meet current ADA standards; and existing pedestrian signals where the pushbutton is inaudible, inaccessible or missing.
