Maintaining Sidewalks and Curbs
There are approximately 851 miles of sidewalk and 2000 miles of curb within the city limits. Repairs are driven mainly by citizen requests. Repair volumes are tied to annual funding with a goal to address each request by the end of the city’s fiscal year. This year’s performance target is 16,800 feet. Along with repairs, the City works with a concrete grinding contractor. Sidewalk joint grinding is a cost effective method of leveling trip hazards and substantially reducing injuries to citizens from trip and fall accidents by grinding down the uneven joints between sidewalk panels. Sidewalk and curb repairs enhance pedestrian safety, mobility and promote healthier communities.
