How is the work performed?

Multiple construction crews perform work in the program. Below is a basic outline of how work is performed:

  • Crews use a saw to cut the sidewalk to allow for clean removal and to prevent damage to the adjacent sidewalk or driveway pavement.
  • A second crew removes the sidewalk/curb/driveway apron.
  • Another crew installs wood/metal framing to help form the concrete when it is poured.
  • A fourth crew pours the concrete and puts the finishing touches on the surface of the concrete. A separate crew will replace the asphalt driveway apron if needed.
  • Finally, the sidewalk/curb/driveway apron is backfilled with topsoil and seed by a landscaping crew.
