Sidewalk Replacement Program

The City of Lockport is accepting requests for sidewalk repair and replacement through end of day on Friday, June 15, 2018. Requests may be made by entering a service request through the City’s service request system on the City’s website.

The City will remove and replace damaged sections of sidewalk, provided that one of the following criteria are met and funding is available:

  • Sidewalk is cracked into three or more pieces with the cracks being at least 1/8” wide or wider.
  • More than 50% of the sidewalk surface is chipped or spalled.
  • Sidewalk has raised or settled to the point where the raised/settled section is more than 1/4” above or below adjacent sections.

The program is 100% funded by the City at no cost to residents. After June 15, the City will go out and evaluate all requests received, and prioritize the sidewalks in need of greatest repair.
