Sidewalk Replacement

The sidewalks on our street were marked for replacement a few weeks ago due to tree root lifting damage.  These are the sidewalks on either side of our house.  Our sidewalk is mostly fine (the white metal fence is ours).

The heavy equipment arrived yesterday to remove the existing sidewalk pieces.  It was really fun to watch.  These little bob-cats lift the pieces and somehow get them in the street and then hammer them into smaller pieces.  The smaller pieces were placed into huge dump trucks by the other cute little bob-cats.

This morning, the concrete was poured and curing by the time I got home from breakfast.

The company doing the work for the city promised that they would get it done quickly, and to be honest, I was pretty skeptical, but they have come through so far.  Next is fixing the landscaping and any sprinkler systems damaged.   And I imagine they'll do the other side of  the street next week.

Good job, guys, doing such a good job so far.


  1. I'm glad its getting done quickly for you. Hope they fix everything they damaged.

  2. They DID end up damaging one of our sprinkler heads; Bruce left them a note about it this morning. ;)

  3. Honey, bob cats are not "cute" they are serious earth moving equipment!


Play nice, please.
