Broken Sidewalk Repairs with FSS

A Broken sidewalk can be a serious problem. Not just because it doesn’t look good, but because of safety and liability issues. When a concrete pedestrian walkway has irregularities, it can make it more difficult to traverse without injury. We’ve all likely tripped and fallen down one time or another- and damaged sidewalks make this happenstance far more likely. Now that’s for you and me, but what about those who already have a more difficult; time getting around, like those with locomotive disabilities?

It’s because of those extra difficulties that in the 1990sthe ADA was passed. This stands for the Americans with Disabilities Act. Though the act does aim mostly to protect the rights and ensure aid to those with disabilities, it also plays a roll in protecting all of us. The ADA places the responsibility of the integrity of any pedestrian pathway into the hands of the property owners and managers.  Because of that, many of the ADA rules revolve around how publicly accessible structures are built in order to provide those who face unique locomotion challenges with safe, and convenient methods of traversal. These rules indicate parameters such as but not limited to: the slope requirement for ramps, height differentials, walkway width, and more. If you have a cracked sidewalk, it may not be out of compliance yet but it’s only a matter of time.

Your first thought with a broken sidewalk is likely to replace the damaged panels or the whole darn thing! We don’t blame you, but you should know there is a better way!
