Berkley City-wide Sidewalk Replacement Program
The City of Berkley is continuing its multi-year, City-wide Sidewalk Replacement Program and Phase 2 will include the East, Central, and Southwest sections of the City. This program will be taking a new approach where it will run in five-year cycles rather than carrying out replacements every 15 years as it had been done in the past.
Scope of the 2021 Pilot Program is as follows:
- Replacement of both private and City-owned sidewalk slabs (whether they are the result of tree root disturbance or not) within the East, Central, and Southwest sections of the City. These sections are bordered by Greenfield, 12 Mile, Woodward, Catalpa, Coolidge, and 11 Mile.
- This Phase 2 program includes concrete slabs determined to be “immediate” (2 inches or more in vertical displacement), as determined by inspection and evaluation.
- If there are any major category (between 1/2 inch and 2 inches in vertical displacement) priorities adjacent to the immediate priorities, those slabs will be addressed at the same time.
