Sidewalk Replacements
Project Summary
Each year, the City replaces approximately 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 2016 Sidewalk Replacement Project will take place on the following streets: 

  • Sunny Terrace Drive
  • Bent Springs Drive
  • Brook Springs Court
  • Clearbrook Drive
  • Bentbrook Court

KJ Unnerstall Construction was the lowest of four bidders on February 9th ($23,386.00), and the contract was approved by the Board of Aldermen on February 22nd. 

All installation work was completed in April, with minor restoration remaining. The contractor has been informed of settlement that must be repaired and reseeded.

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.
