The City of Port Colborne’s Engineering and Operations team is currently in the process of completing its annual sidewalk inspections in accordance with the Minimum Maintenance Standards. Each year the City inspects sidewalks for cracks, uneven surfaces, and holes.

Sidewalks can become damaged over time due to extreme weather, growth of nearby trees, and settling in the soil below.

If a sidewalk is found to be broken or raised, City crews will mark it with pink paint and schedule a temporary repair to be carried out as soon as possible.

Please see pictures below for examples:
