Each spring, City Engineering Technicians walk the project area, marking deficient sections of the sidewalk, curb ramps, driveway aprons, and curb and gutter. The markings are as follows:
White Dot: Sections have been marked to draw your attention to defects in the section; repairs on these sections can be made by the property owner.
White Line: These sections that have been marked are either heaved or subsided, Saw Cutting or Mud Jacking repairs are required. These repairs must be made by a qualified person, firm or corporation.
Pink Dot: These sections have been scheduled for replacement. These repairs must be made by a qualified person, firm or corporation.
In some cases sidewalk sections adjacent to a curb ramp are marked for replacement so that the slope of the curb ramp can be reduced to meet standards of the American with Disabilities Act (ADA). The cost of these sections are covered by the City.
Shortly before the contractor is to begin concrete removal you will see new markings on the sidewalk. These new markings will be pink arrows showing the contractor where to make cuts and what sections need to be removed.
