The city maintains more than 8 million linear feet of curb and nearly 900 miles of sidewalk.
Submit requests for repairs using the city’s online customer service tool, OPCares.
When problems are reported, curbs are temporarily repairs with an asphalt patch until they can be permanently addressed as part of the city’s street improvement program.
A section of the sidewalk that has slightly shifted is permanently repaired by grinding out the uneven surface.
If the shift is too severe to grind, the city will install a concrete-like ramp patch.
This temporary repair is meant to hold for several years until it can be scheduled for replacement.
If you live in an established neighborhood with no sidewalk, you may complete a petition to request a new sidewalk.
Neighborhood homes associations or conservation groups can submit a request on behalf of their board of directors after conducting a needs survey to ensure a sidewalk is needed in the neighborhood.
Please call 913-895-6040 for more information about requesting new sidewalks.
