There are approximately 60 miles of public sidewalk pavement within the Village of Shorewood. To ensure these walks remain in good condition, the Department of Public Works administers a biennial sidewalk replacement program in each of five defined areas of the Village on a rotating cycle. All public sidewalks and carriage walks in the target area are reviewed and defective areas (PDF) are identified for removal and replacement.
Per Village policy, public walk replacement is assessed to the adjacent private property owner at 100% of the cost (on a corner lot the secondary frontage is assessed at 50%).
The Village's sidewalk replacement program is contracted every other year in odd calendar years. Please see the map (PDF) illustrating the 2015 to 2023 sidewalk program areas.
