Frequently Asked Questions
About NYC Sidewalk Repair

What Are Some Common Causes of Sidewalk Damage?

Tree roots account for many sidewalk-related damages. Rainfall and fluctuating temperatures cause the ground underneath your sidewalk to shift and settle, and this also causes sidewalk damage.

How Long Do I Have to Address a DOT Sidewalk Violation Notice?

You have 75 days to get your sidewalk repaired and inspected.

What Happens If I Fail to Handle the Repair Work in That Timeframe?

The DOT will hire a contractor to handle the work for you and require you to pay the bill. This consequence prevents you from hiring a contractor for a price that may better suit your budget.

Is There a Way to Handle This Work in Case I'm Too Busy To?

Yes. Simply request an expedited repair from the DOT. The department will handle the work and inspection for you, requiring you simply to pay the bill. This option is good for busy business owners who don't mind paying a bit extra to handle the matter.
