Staff <br />evaluates sidewalks, curbs, gutters and driveways to identify uneven surfaces and cracks <br />that may pose a risk to pedestrians. The goal is to improve safety, increase active modes <br />of transportation, such as walking and biking, and comply with regulations set forth by the <br />American with Disabilities Act, which reduces the potential for liability claims. Staff use <br />offset grinding, temporary asphalt ramping and removal/replacement of damaged <br />concrete areas to improve conditions. <br />On June 30, 2020, the City Manager authorized the award of a contract to EBS General <br />Engineering Services Inc. (EBS) for a concrete replacement project of various damaged <br />sidewalks, curbs, gutters and driveway approaches. Prioritization of work is focused on <br />areas with the highest concentration of needed repairs, with the intent of providing a <br />proportionate level of service in each of the City's six Council wards. As such, sidewalk <br />concrete repair work was completed in the Heninger and French Park neighborhoods. <br />
