Concrete Replacement Information
The repair and maintenance of sidewalks, pedestrian pathways, and driveway aprons within the Baltimore County right-of-way are the responsibility of each respective property owner. All sidewalks, pathways and driveway aprons must be maintained in a safe condition, free from obstructions and tripping hazards as defined in the Americans with Disabilities Act.
To aid the property owner in the repair and maintenance of sidewalks, pathways and driveway aprons, Baltimore County offers a program that allows the property owner to request that the necessary repairs be made by the Bureau of Highways. Upon application, arrangements will be made with a county approved contractor to complete the work, per Baltimore County Standards and Specifications. The costs incurred will be placed on the property tax bill, spread evenly over a five year period, interest free.
The cost for concrete sidewalk replacement is $6.50 per square foot. The cost for driveway replacement is $9.50 per square foot.
Typically there is a waiting period of up to one year before the work can be completed under this program; however, should you choose not to wait, you may elect to hire a private contractor at any time.
For your convenience, you may complete the Application for Concrete Construction (PDF) and return it to the Bureau of Highways. It is important that all information on the application be complete, signed and returned to begin the process for your concrete repair. You may also call the Bureau of Highways at 410-887-3560, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment with a representative to complete the application at your residence.
