Each year Rochester Public Works has an annual sidewalk project to repair or replace five percent of the city’s sidewalks.

It’s all part of Rochester’s Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan, which the city adopted in 2013.

Construction is already underway around the Silver Lake Park area on 11th Avenue NE.

The boundaries for the repairs being done in 2022 includes Viola Road at the north, East Circle Road to the east, the Canadian Pacific Railroad Tracks to the south, and 11th Avenue NE to the west.

Pink paint is being used to indicate sidewalk defects and property owners will receive a door hanger notice for pending work.

Landscaping crews will be repairing damages to lawns once construction is complete.
