PWSA’s annual street and sidewalk restoration contract handles street, sidewalk, and landscaping restoration at all previous PWSA work locations and at many contractor sites.
When we repair or replace infrastructure assets — like a water or sewer main — the location is added to our list of restoration sites. A crew will then be dispatched to add a temporary concrete sidewalk pad or asphalt to the site. That temporary restoration will be permanently replaced. However, due to the volume of work in process, customers can expect to wait several weeks, or sometimes months, for premanent restoration.
In 2022, we’ve restored more than 800 sites. About one third of these sites required both asphalt roadway and concrete sidewalk work at the same time.
As winter weather approaches, making it too cold to install asphalt or concrete, work on this contract will slow, with only emergency locations and some temporary restoration being completed. Some locations added later in the year and those added over the winter will be logged and put on hold until the spring of 2023.
