East Grand Rapids Sidewalks

East Grand Rapids takes pride in being a walkable community.  Everywhere you look, folks of all ages are out and about in all types of weather, shopping, jogging, headed for school, or walking the dog. At the Public Works Department, we do our best to make sure that you have a firm footing.  

Every year, we inspect a selected area for worn out or unsafe squares and we replace sidewalks as necessary. We work outside the selected area wherever the most urgent problems are found. Replacement is based on a policy of established criteria based on the size of offset joints, cracking, or uneven surfaces. It takes about 10 to 12 years to complete the entire city in this continuous process. You can help by notifying us of problems that you see. Contact the Public Works Administration Office using information on the right.
