Project Scope and Overview
Pipe candidates for lining are determined each year based on rating criteria from the regular sewer inspections.

Berkley City-wide Sidewalk Replacement Program
The City of Berkley conducted its bid process on the Sidewalk Replacement Program which is initially focused within the southwest section of the City. However, City administration decided it will delay the start of this program until further notice over concerns about financial hardships residents may face due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Scope of the Pilot Program is as follows:
- The replacement of sidewalk slabs (whether they are the result of tree root disturbance or not) within the southwest section of the City bordered by Greenfield and Coolidge to the west and east, respectively, and 11 Mile Road and Catalpa to the south and north, respectively.
- This initial program includes those concrete slabs determined to be “immediate” (2 inches or more in vertical displacement), as determined by inspection and evaluation of this section, including City-owned facilities.
- If there are any major category (between ½ inch and 2 inches in vertical displacement) priorities adjacent to the immediate priorities, those slabs will be addressed at the same time.
Project Start: TBD
