Upcoming Projects

    1. Measure S and P Sidewalk spot repairs to clean up uplifts or other tripping hazards - long term throughout the city. Currently or soon in Old Town, New Monterey including Lighthouse Ave, and Cannery Row areas. A message from the Public Works Department: Pedestrian safety, and having a walkable community is of the utmost importance. Damaged or uplifted sidewalk can occur overtime, and the City of Monterey Public Works Department strives to perform repairs in a timely manner. If you notice orange paint on the sidewalk, it is an indication that a deficiency has been flagged and repairs are being coordinated.  The City continues to explore innovative methods to address minor sidewalk deficiencies and recently awarded a contract to contractor to diamond slicing uplifts in the Downtown and New Monterey Neighborhoods. Once these first neighborhoods are addressed, the contractor will continue to work in other neighborhoods throughout the City.

Active Projects


Question: How do I report a raised sidewalk that has a potential to cause a tripping hazard?
Answer: If the uplift is caused by a city tree the city will fix it, otherwise it might be on the responsibility of the property owner or a utility company to address the issue. Typically, a Public Works crew will go out to identify the uplift, measure the uplift, paint the uplift and take pictures. We keep a log and send the appropriate party a letter to address the issue.
