Concrete repairs to commence during the Week of December 20, 2021

Precision Safe Sidewalks, LLC will be removing trip hazards on sidewalks and curbs throughout the cluster for approximately two days during the week of December 20, 2021.  While the concrete cutting activity is quite loud, the cutting operator moves along relatively quickly and there is very little dust involved. The same process was recently performed with great effect on all of the Reston Association concrete sidewalks that traverse the cluster.  

Note: You might need to move your vehicle if it is parked immediately adjacent to a curb that will require cutting.  Scheduling is weather-dependent - we do not yet have an exact start date.  Stay tuned.

  • Height1 -- the highest point of the hazard
