Concrete Curb & Gutter, Sidewalk and Drive Approach Replacement

To report a sidewalk issue click here.

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 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 Kyle Biggs at or 801-535-6934.

Concrete restoration includes the following:

  • 50/50 concrete program for deteriorated residential concrete sidewalks, drive approaches, and curb & gutter replacement
  • 100% concrete program for deteriorated commercial concrete sidewalks, drive approaches, and curb & gutter replacement
  • ADA ramp replacement
  • Waterway construction

Concrete Roadway Maintenance Program

The Streets Division will perform concrete maintenance on 11 lane miles of concrete roadway annually. Concrete road maintenance involves resealing the concrete joints and on rare occasion replacing concrete slabs. The joints are cleaned with high pressure air and concrete saws before they are resealed with backer rod and hot polymer sealant. The purpose of joint sealant is to extend the life of the roadway by reducing the infiltration of water and foreign material into the joints which results in the loss of structural support. Further information regarding pavement management can be obtained by emailing David Jones at

Every resident and business will receive the first advanced notification that explains the process approximately one to two months prior to the concrete roadway maintenance. One day prior to the application of the joint sealant, residents and businesses will receive a second notification explaining what action to take. The day before the maintenance begins “No Parking” signs will be placed on the street. In the case that a vehicle is not moved, and the owner cannot be contacted, the vehicle will be towed to the nearest street and SLCPD will be contacted with the address where the vehicle was placed.

Let us know how we’re doing by taking this survey!

Roadway Reconstruction

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
