What is a sidewalk hazard?

Sidewalk inspectors look for hazards that cause people to trip and fall. For example, sidewalks that are raised, badly cracked, or have holes and rough spots or damage by tree roots may be hazardous. 

Guidelines suggest lips or settlement exceeding 1 3/4 inches may be considered a hazard. 

If you would like to report a hazard, contact Engineering Services Department at 305-809-3965.
