What Is The Sidewalk Safety Project?
In March 2023, Capitol Hill Village formed a Sidewalk Safety Team (SST) in response to member concerns over sidewalk hazards and the time sidewalk repairs take.
The SST has four main recommendations for DDOT:
- Reduce the SLA/goal to resolve small sidewalk hazards to 30 business days, and provide a temporary remedy to sidewalks in poor condition within 30 business days.
- Provide adequate funding to implement recommendation #1.
- Establish an annual sidewalk monitoring program.
- Study methods to reduce the number of sidewalk problems that need to be fixed and costs to repair.
