Sidewalk Infill Program

Fill in sidewalk in areas that either have no sidewalk or have partial sidewalks that need to be  connected. It’s proposed to break this project into phases so that it can be properly managed and constructed with lower impact on the residents. Phase 4 includes portions of W. 56th Terrace and Perry Ave., and is scheduled to begin in fall 2020.
