In December 2009, City staff conducted a condition assessment of sidewalks along the City’s main streets. The full length of each street segment was inspected and defects were inventoried using GPS equipment. Approximately 33,250 square feet of sidewalk needs to be replaced. The execution of the project will address all deficiencies noted in the 2009 inventory.

The ARRA grant will be administered by City staff and overseen by the Virginia Department of Transportation. Sidewalk repair work will be limited to existing sidewalks on collector and arterial roads within the City. The monies from this grant award cannot be used for other projects.
