[ARCHIVED] Sidewalk Improvements Continue

Oak Street Sidewalk

Sidewalk improvements are various locations within the City of Brookings are continuing this week, City Manager Gary Milliman said today.

“The City has budgeted $8,000 annually for general sidewalk improvements and repairs,” Milliman said.  “This enables us to do a few projects each year.  We are taking advantage of the good weather to get some of these projects done now.”

One such project is located on Oak Street at the driveway serving Coast Auto.  “The sidewalk and driveway at this location is a maze of curbs and pavement repair,” Milliman said.  “I have personally observed young mothers attempting to negotiate this area with strollers and can imagine the difficulty encountered by people using wheelchairs.”

The City Parks Crew cleared brush that had overgrown onto the sidewalk last week, and the Public Works Crew will be demolishing the existing paving this week.  This will be followed by the installation of new sidewalk and a driveway that will provide a smooth transition for pedestrians.  The concrete work has been contracted to Klinefelter Contracting.

Other locations where sidewalk work is or will soon be in progress include Pacific and Fern Avenue.
