All property owners will be notified by the City no later than two weeks prior to construction beginning. The City will also post weekly updates on www.cityofsanrafael.org/sidewalks with the list of streets scheduled for the upcoming weeks. Construction at the average property is anticipated to take up to 5 days, starting with demolition of the existing sidewalk, followed by placement of the forms for new concrete, and completed with the pouring the new sidewalk. During any given 5 day period, the contractor will be doing 5 – 7 properties. 

Property owners with trees that cannot survive the root trimming required for their sidewalk repair will be notified individually that the City will be removing the street tree(s) and grinding the stump in December and January. All street trees removed will be replaced following the completion of sidewalk construction.
