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.

Call the Bureau of Highways at 410-887-3560, or by email at to schedule an appointment with a representative to complete the application at your residence.

For damages to the concrete driveway or sidewalk from trees, please view the information on tree removal, or call the Bureau of Highways at 410-887-3560 or
