Sidewalk Replacements
Project Summary
Each year, the City replaces over 1000 linear feet of sidewalk under contract.  City crews replace additional sidewalks on an emergency basis.  The City marks the locations to be removed and replaced, then the contractor performs the work.  In most cases, the sidewalk is being replaced because adjacent tree roots have lifted the sidewalk, causing trip hazards.  In order to combat this issue, roots are trimmed, and when possible, a product called TripStop is installed.

Please note that neither the existing nor new concrete is "colored" concrete.  While there is some limestone-based concrete around the city, most of the concrete contains Meramec sand and gravel, which provides the orange/brown look.  While the new concrete initially appears to be a bright white, over time, the color mellows and the top layer of cement wears off, revealing the brown sand and gravel underneath.

Project Location and Schedule

The 2017 project will include heaved slabs along Greenbriar Estates Drive.  The successful bidder for this year's project is E. Meier Contracting. Slabs to be replaced have been marked, and the contractor is expected to start the week of 4/24. The work is expected to take 3-4 weeks.

The Street Division can grind trip hazards or replace sidewalk slabs in extenuating circumstances.  Call Public Works at 835-6130 to report a trip hazard.
