Urgent Sidewalk Repairs in Residential and Green Space Areas

Sidewalks in poor condition are dangerous and hazardous for pedestrians and those using wheelchairs, strollers, canes and walkers. This proposal will improve sidewalk conditions in residential areas. It will also improve accessibility to a new community garden and beautify the surroundings. CDOT will only repair sections of sidewalk that are deteriorated. Each block costs an average of $75,000 or less to repair, depending on condition.

Estimated Cost: $240,000

Residential and School Zone Speed Hump Installation

Speed humps create a safer environment by helping slow traffic on streets that students and families cross frequently. When a car hits a pedestrian at a high rate of speed, the collision is more likely to result in a pedestrian fatality. Speed humps slow vehicles and give drivers increased response time and distance for stopping. This makes streets safer for pedestrians. Installation of speed humps costs $3,700 per block.

Estimated Cost: $66,600

Location: Chicago


Alley Apron Repair

Alley aprons are located at the ends of alleys and serve two main purposes. They create a smooth and safe point of entry into alleys for vehicles. They also create a safe and passable surface for pedestrians to walk in locations where alley entrances interrupt the natural flow of the sidewalk. Alley aprons with holes, cracks, missing sections or uneven pavement are hazardous for pedestrians and vehicles. They will be replaced with new concrete alley aprons. Each alley apron costs an average of $10,000 to replace.

Estimated Cost: $150,000

Location: Chicago
