Construction at the following four addresses is anticipated to begin February 11th, weather dependent:

  • 150 Forbes Ave
  • 1623 Fifth Ave
  • 1702 Fifth Ave
  • 210 H Street

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.

Once construction at these four addresses in the Sun Valley neighborhood is complete, we will move onto the Gerstle Park neighborhood. Per the 11/29/18 Sidewalk Repair Program Update, the neighborhood order for construction for the program is as follows:
