Crews contracted by the City of Wheaton are scheduled to begin replacing sidewalk squares in need of replacement starting on July 5, 2023, weather permitting. This year’s program will mainly focus on replacing squares east of Main Street, north of Roosevelt Road, and south of Union Avenue, but there are areas throughout the City where crews will be completing spot repairs. You can see a map of the work areas on the City’s website.
The City uses specific criteria to identify the condition of sidewalk squares and selects squares for replacement on a cyclical basis, completing as many replacements as the City’s budgeted funding will allow. The 2023 Sidewalk Replacement Program list is full, and any new sidewalk repair requests received from the public will be reviewed for replacement eligibility in 2024. You can read more about this program on the City’s website.
If crews will be working on sidewalk squares that cross your driveway, you will receive a notice before work begins.
Please note this sidewalk replacement program is separate from the City’s program to add new sidewalks where none currently exist. If you have questions regarding the sidewalk replacement program, please contact the Public Works Department at 630-260-2110.
