Sidewalk Repair



Project Name: Sidewalk Repair

Department: Public Works Department

Start Date: 7/01/2023

End Date: Ongoing


These funds are used for the repair and maintenance of concrete infrastructure within the City's Right-of-Way, including sidewalks, curbs, and ADA ramps. The repair and upgrade of ADA ramps as it relates to the street resurfacing program, is a federal mandate - 28 CFR 35.151(i), and is the primary use of this fund


Chapter 6 : Transportation

Goal 1. Complete Streets

Create and maintain a connected network of safe, convenient, and pleasant

accommodations for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit riders, including people of all ages and abilities.

Goal 2. Coordination with Land Use & Community Design

Improve quality of life and promote active living by reducing automobile use and congestion and supporting multimodal options for safe

and convenient travel in conjunction with implementation of the Future Land Use Vision.

Goal 8. Infrastructure Funding

Identify and seek new sources of sustainable funding mechanisms for the maintenance

of existing multimodal infrastructure and facilities and future development of the transportation system

Chapter 7 : Environment, Climate, and Food Equity

Goal 1. Climate Change Mitigation, Emissions, and Energy

Reduce community greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and the city’s overall carbon footprint to meet goals established for 2030 (45% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from 2011 levels) and 2050 (carbon neutrality).


Objectives: To proactively maintain, upgrade, and replace the City's concrete infrastructure to ensure safe and accessible travel

Status: The majority outlay for this fund comes from the preparing the street resurfacing program schedule of streets for paving operations by repairing and installing required concrete infrastructure, to include any and all ADA requirements. Upgrading ADA ramps, addressing sidewalk hazards and other repair to curb/gutter should be performed prior to repaving operations. Due to contractor availability and capacity issues, progress of work has slowed and has negatively impacted the City's paving operations as well. This fund is critical for advancing the required improvement of ADA facilities and pavement condition across the City's planned paving list, and when capacity allows for should be funded at a higher than current level. Due to the current unknowns surrounding contractor capacity, Public Works is exploring alternative procurement structures to get planned work completed.

Cost Estimate

Operating Impacts

Contractor availability and capacity issues as well as increased labor/material costs are limiting the amount of work that can be completed. However, because this work is continual in nature, as repairs/replacements are mandated upon damages and traffic pattern changes, future increases in funding may be needed.
