Sidewalk improvements will help remove potential trip hazards and help make sidewalks navigable. 

Tentatively Monday, April 27, 2020, the city’s contractor RMS Constructors Group will make sidewalk improvements in the Bryn Mawr neighborhood. Improving, repairing, modifying, or replacing concrete sidewalk slabs will help remove potential trip hazards and make sidewalks navigable.

Please know, sidewalk improvements will only occur in the public right-of-way, RMS Constructors Group will not make any improvements on private property.

Once the project starts, constituents will notice crews and equipment working in the public right-of-way. Project hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Property owners will have access to their driveway or entrance throughout the project. However, there may be times when a driveway or entrance is impacted temporarily. Should this occur, the city’s contractor will provide the property owner with advance notice should this occur.

Pedestrians may experience temporary sidewalk detours or closures for their safety. We respectfully ask pedestrians to please adhere to posted pedestrian signs.

To modify or replace concrete sidewalk slabs a cutting saw is necessary. Use of the cutting saw during project hours may potential cause an increase in noise.

Solid waste, recycling, and other services will continue as scheduled. Should an emergency occur, first responders and emergency vehicles will have priority access.

Please know, adverse weather and unforeseen circumstances may increase the project’s duration and create delays. There may be opportunities for weekend work during this project.

Q: What are the project limits?

Sidewalk improvements will occur on one side of the street or both sides of the street at the following locations:

The Bryn Mawr neighborhood

Sidewalk Slabs designated for improvement were previously identified and marked prior to project start.

Q: How deep - far will the sidewalks go in the public right-of-way?

Sidewalks are typically placed as far from the street as possible at the intersection of the right-of-way and the property line.

Q: Will I have access to my driveway or home entrance?

Yes. Throughout the project, you will have access to your driveway or entrance. However, there may be times when both are impacted temporarily as the project progresses. Should there be an impact to your driveway or entrance, the contractor will notify you in advance of starting work. 

Q: Will there be noise?

At times yes. There is potential for an increase in noise during project hours. 

Q: What happens if there is an emergency?

Should an emergency occur, the contractor will grant first responders and emergency vehicles priority access. 

Q: What about solid waste and recycling collection?

Solid waste, recycling, mail, and other services will continue on schedule without interruption. 

 Q: Will my irrigation system be okay?

The contractor will make a considerable effort to protect sprinkler - irrigation systems. Should an irrigation system become damaged during the project, the contractor will coordinate with the homeowner in getting the system repaired.

Q: What about underground utilities water, power, sewer, and cable?

Repair or rehabilitation of sidewalks should not impact underground utilities. Typically, underground utilities are installed at a depth at or greater than 3-ft. It is highly unlikely repairs will damage an underground utility. However should this occur, homeowners should contact the project manager and notify their utility provider. The contractor will coordinate with the home owner with getting the utility repaired.
