Most new sidewalk construction has been completed for the year, with only Northampton Rd remaining. ADA ramp and landing work on Riverview was added to the contract but will be completed in the spring. Crews are currently finishing the last sidewalk repairs on Portage St. Work will be finished by the end of October.
The Foundation for Excellence continues to invest more than $1 million into sidewalks each year, with $1.2 million of work planned for 2023. This work is focused near schools and neighborhood amenities, and to close gaps in the existing sidewalk network. A few projects originally scheduled for 2022 will also be completed this year. Nearly a mile of new sidewalk will be added this year, on top of about 2 miles being repaired.
