Neighborhood Sidewalk Improvement Program - Summer 2020

Project Description


The Village of Northbrook systematically surveys public sidewalks to identify defective and deteriorated sections of sidewalk that create a potential hazard and a liability for the Village. Often, tree roots that push up sections of sidewalks and the Midwest’s freeze/thaw cycle cause sections of sidewalk to be defective and or deteriorate. Village staff survey sidewalks based on logical geographic areas to determine which portions are to be replaced.

In addition to the replacement of failed sidewalk squares, the Village also installs Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) required ramps at intersections and replaces select curbs adjacent to the sidewalks. In total, approximately 6% of Village sidewalks are replaced each year. All replacements are performed by the Village’s contractor.

In 2020, the Village will focus on sidewalks located in the Charlemagne, Lone Tree, Sunset View Subdivisions, Villas North, Calceda North and Sunny Acres subdivisions as well as Sky Harbor Business Park.
