1/18/19 – Sidewalk Repair Program Update: Sun Valley Construction

Posted on January 18, 2019

Construction at the following four addresses is anticipated to begin January 28, weather dependent:

  • 4 Beryl Lane
  • 318 Forbes Ave
  • 153 Center Street
  • 1956 Fifth Ave

Please note — there were no new projects added this week and last due to the rainy weather. Rain is good for our ecosystem and reservoirs and ski trips, but not great for pouring concrete!

Construction on average is anticipated to take up to 5 days, starting with demolition of the existing sidewalk, removal of minor tree roots, followed by placement of the forms for new concrete, and completed with the pouring the new sidewalk.

Please note: even though a tree at a sidewalk construction property is not currently slated for removal, it may need to be removed after sidewalk demolition and the full root system is visible. In these cases we will use an independent certified arborist to determine whether or not the tree can survive the root removal required to complete the sidewalk repair. If the tree is determined as needing removal, it will need to be removed immediately, including stump grinding, in order to continue with the sidewalk construction. In any case where a street tree is removed as part of the sidewalk program, a replacement tree will be replanted after construction is complete. In any case where a street tree is removed as part of the sidewalk program, a replacement tree will be replanted after construction is complete.
