Want to assist the Municipality with determining priority sidewalk construction and repair locations within the County? The Corporation of Prince Edward County would like the to provide residents with an update regarding sidewalk locations that are currently on our list to be reconstructed or repaired this year and would also like the residents input on future sidewalk maintenance locations throughout the County.

Annual Sidewalk Reconstruction/Construction Projects

Each year the Municipality conducts two (2) Annual Sidewalk Reconstruction/Construction Projects; an Annual Ongoing Maintenance Project, completed through the Operations Department, and an Annual Capital Reconstruction/Construction Project, completed through the Development Services Department. This year the Operations and Development Services Departments would like to provide the residents of Prince Edward County with our reconstruction/construction lists for the year of 2020 and gather input from residents to assist with determining additional locations requiring reconstruction and repairs. The information provided by the Prince Edward County residents will be used to help the Operations and Development Services Departments with the lists of priority sidewalk locations requiring reconstruction/construction.

Annual Ongoing Maintenance Project

Funding from the Operating Budget allows for small sections of sidewalk/curb or single panel replacements of sidewalk to be repaired or replaced in relation to surface discontinuity and surface damage. These repairs are regulated as part of the Minimum Maintenance Standards under O.Reg. 239/02 of the Municipal Act. Sidewalks are inspected by staff annually to compile the list of sidewalks panels and/or curb deemed to be in need of repair that year. The Operations Department supervises these repairs with work being completed by a combination of internal staff and hired contractors. Internal staff are utilized for patch repairs on sidewalks, while trip hazard mitigation grinding and full replacement repairs are completed by contractors through the procurement process. The maintenance repair list for panel replacements in 2020 is available for viewing in the Documents section. This work under the maintenance project is anticipated to take place in September.

Annual Capital Reconstruction/Construction Project

Funding from the Capital Budget allows for large sections of sidewalk/curb to be replaced, for a section of sidewalk to be extended or for a new sidewalk to be installed where one does not exist. These sections of sidewalk are on the larger scale, such as half a street or an entire Street. The locations of the sidewalk replacements are determined by a combination of a list of sidewalk locations provided by the Operations Department, when they find sections that are larger then their scope of work, and members of the public who have brought sections of concerns to our attention.

The sidewalk locations that are on our list to be replaced are available for viewing in the Documents section. It is important to note that not all locations can be replaced in one year and will carry-on to the next years list. It is also important to be aware that not all sidewalk locations requiring replacement are on the list provided. A large number of sidewalk sections require work, however we can only do a portion of sidewalks at a time. The list only includes Sidewalk Locations that have been deemed priority. The work under the Capital project is anticipated to take place in October, and work that cannot be completed this year will included on next years list.

Have Your Say

The Sidewalk Map tool below (or see link here) provides you with an opportunity to pin sidewalk locations and identify the type of sidewalk deficiencies in that area. Multiple choice options include:

  1. Areas to Expand the Sidewalk Width: Areas where the existing sidewalk is narrow;
  2. Areas to Replace the Existing Sidewalk: Areas where the existing sidewalk has severe; cracking, distortion and/or eroded/broken edge; and,
  3. Areas to Extend the Sidewalk: Areas where the sidewalk should be extended where there is currently no sidewalk.

For each pin you add to the map, you will be provided with the opportunity to upload your own photo of the location and add a comment.
