Sidewalk Maintenance

The City of Gainesville funds three concrete crews that maintain and repair curb, sidewalk and curb inlets throughout the year. Most of our efforts are aimed at removing unsafe facilities to prevent accidents and injuries.


Curb & Gutter Construction and Maintenance

The concrete section removes and replaces curb.  The repairs are usually required because of damage incurred by tree roots, utility cuts, or from the Resurfacing Program list. Work is generated by input from citizens, Gainesville Regional Utilities or through in-house inspection by Operations Division personnel.




Sidewalk Construction & Maintenance

The concrete section removes and replaces sidewalk and ADA Ramps. Repair work is generated by the same method as curb work. Concrete grinding, of raised sidewalk, is a method used to increase response time and prolong the life of the sidewalk before it has to be replaced. Concrete grinding is a very cost-effective method of removing raised areas that are less than one (1) inch.


Curb Inlet Construction and Repair

The concrete section repairs curb inlets that are usually crushed by heavy vehicles such as garbage trucks.
