Maintenance and repair of existing sidewalk within the County rights-of-way is the responsibility of the Department of Public Works. The County will respond to reports of vertical faulting or sidewalk deficiencies and will perform localized wedging or grinding. Total replacement of the sidewalk is dependent upon the severity of the problem and available funding.
Construction of new sidewalks in a residential or commercial subdivision generally is accomplished either by the developer of the subdivision or commercial site development plan, or the County's Capital Improvement Program (CIP). A “capital” project involves a physical improvement to public property.
Citizen requests for construction of new sidewalks in the public right of way may be submitted to the Office of Transportation, 2664 Riva Road, Annapolis, Maryland 21401, telephone 410-222-7440.
Requests for repair of sidewalks should be directed to the appropriate Road District. A supervisor will investigate your concern and respond to you within one week (one day if it is a hazard) to advise you of a schedule for any needed work.
