Important Announcement about the Sidewalk Replacement Program.

The Department of Public Works (PBW) has closed cost share applications and acceptance of payments until after March 1, 2024.  Due to high demand and popularity of the program, PBW is re-assessing the program’s policy for improvements.  To be added to the waitlist, please call (214) 948-4127.  Sidewalk hazardous conditions are eligible for temporary asphalt repairs.  Please call (214) 670-3111 to request temporary repairs.  Any sidewalk replacements by the property owner or by a private contractor must have an issued permit from the City of Dallas Permit Center, 320 E.  Jefferson Blvd. Room 118, (214) 948-4290.  

General Information

  • The City secures all necessary permits. The program has a one year warranty on workmanship.
  • Property owners may experience delays in sod replacement (if required) due to seasonal availability.
  • City ordinance requires property owners to replace sidewalks, drive approaches or any other associated element when they become defective, unsafe or hazardous.
  • For request to install new sidewalks where none exist, please contact Precilla Cardenas, Project Coordinator at 214-948-4125.

Cost Share Program

  • The City partners with residents to share the cost 50/50 for existing residential sidewalk removal and replacement. Note, all single family residences are eligible to participate in this program including condominiums and townhomes.
  • In addition, the property owner will pay 100% for the cost of drive approach removal and replacement. The City pays for all other miscellaneous items including barrier free ramps.
  • Sidewalk removal and replacement are logged in by the date received.
  • From the initial inquiry it takes two to three months to assess the property and provide a quote by mail. From the time of payment it is approximately three (3) to nine (9) months depending on demand to project completion.
