Additional Information

180 miles of sidewalks

The city of Lakewood is entering its eighth phase of a 10-year strategy to improve the city’s 180 miles of sidewalks and keep them among the most pedestrian-friendly in the state. Each year, the city sends inspectors to check the sidewalks for “trip hazards.” Residents with identified trip hazards have some options. They can pay to have the sidewalk fixed themselves or participate in a citywide bid with the city’s contractor — the idea being to lower the price for property owners.

Residents with trip hazards will fall into one of two categories: Grinding the seams of the sidewalk (at approximately $50); or replacing (approximately $225/5’x5′ slab).
