Concrete Replacement

By City ordinance (14.32.300), the repair or replacement of deteriorated sidewalk, drive approach, and curb and gutter in the public way is the responsibility of the adjacent private property owner.  Property owners can hire a contractor to accomplish the required concrete repairs, which requires a permit to work in the public way, or property owners can take advantage of the 50/50 Concrete Sidewalkconcrete program.

50/50 Concrete Program

The 50/50 concrete program is a cost-sharing program that splits the actual cost of replacement between the adjacent residential property owner and the City on a 50/50 basis.  For commercial properties, the owner will pay 100% of the cost, and this cost must be paid before construction starts.

Construction estimates are provided without charge and work is scheduled on a “first come first serve” basis. To obtain an estimate, please contact Mitch Hansen at or 801-535-6934.

Pavement Management

The Pavement Management team collects and analyzes data to determine the most cost effective maintenance strategy for the City’s roadway network.  The team uses an inventory database to store condition, construction, and maintenance information on a street network of 1,850 lane miles.  Road conditions are evaluated by field inspection and automated pavement surveys and the data determines the type of maintenance plan each road receives.

Pavement Reconstruction

Pavements that have exceeded their functional life are programmed for reconstruction through the City’s Capital Improvement Program.  As with pavement overlays, ADA ramps are installed and drainage impeding damaged curbs are repaired on all reconstruction projects.

Further information regarding Pavement Management can be obtained by emailing David Jones at
