There are 220 miles of public sidewalk in Lombard. The Village offers two programs to residents concerning repair or replacement of public sidewalk.
If a trip hazard (an elevation difference of more than 1¼ inch) is present in the public sidewalk a Public Works crew will either grind the area or ramp the trip hazard with asphalt to mitigate the immediate hazard. If asphalt is applied, the location is added to a list for repair or replacement.
If public sidewalk is in poor aesthetic condition (cracked and/or spalling- peel, pop, flake, or crumble due to water entering concrete), residents wishing to replace it may participate in the 50/50 Sidewalk Replacement Program. Residents participating in this program pay approximately 50% of the cost to replace each sidewalk square.
