Sacramento County has a sidewalk repair program in place to identify and prioritize repair and replacement work as funding allows.
Repair Responsibility: Single Family and Duplex Residential Properties
Single family and duplex residential properties are referred to as “Residential” properties. Sacramento County currently provides the service of repairing curb, gutter, and sidewalk locations fronting “Residential” properties that meet the Repair Criteria. Qualifying “Residential” locations are primarily prioritized by the estimated level of pedestrian usage, as set forth in the SACDOT Pedestrian Master Plan, and scheduled for contract repair based on this prioritization and available funding.
Repair Responsibility: All Other Properties (Other Than Single Family and Duplex Residential Properties)
All other properties other than single family and duplex residential properties are referred to as “Commercial” properties. The property owner is responsible for repairing curb, gutter, and sidewalk locations fronting their “Commercial” property that meet the Repair Criteria. The property owner is notified by mail of their repair responsibility when qualifying locations are reported.
A "temporary repair" is usually a ramp of asphalt placed on the defective curb, gutter, or sidewalk to eliminate a hazard, especially a trip hazard. A temporary repair using asphalt is not considered a permanent repair. All sidewalks within the County right-of-way, regardless of who is responsible for the repair, are eligible for temporary repairs. SACDOT maintenance staff may also perform other maintenance activities, if possible, such as grinding the sidewalk, grooving the gutter, etc. to temporarily repair (or in some cases permanently repair) damaged curb, gutter, or sidewalk.
