Sidewalk, Curb and Gutter Repair Program


The City’s Sidewalk, Curb and Gutter Repairs Project will resume this summer after hiring Nichols Consulting Engineers (NCE) in 2017 to evaluate the program and assess potential improvements. This study was completed in Spring 2019 and included surveying 20 percent of the City’s sidewalk network and nearly 60 percent of the City’s curb ramps. This data was used to put together this year’s project, prioritizing areas that require prompt action.
