2019 Shared Cost Sidewalk Program One-day application period opens Tuesday, January 8th!

The one-day application period for the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT)’s annual Shared Cost Sidewalk Program opens Tuesday, January 8, 2019 at 12:01am.

The Shared Cost Sidewalk Program is an extremely popular voluntary program in which property owners share the cost of sidewalk repair with the City. Thousands of Chicagoans have been a part of this popular program, taking advantage of the low cost, exceptional value, and ease of participation.

The Shared Cost Sidewalk Program cost per square foot charged to property owners is well below what a private contractor would charge. Senior citizens and persons with disabilities may qualify for a further discounted rate.

Applications are taken on a first-come, first-served basis, and the number of participants will be based on availability of funds. The program typically reaches capacity quickly, so apply early!

Applications will only be accepted through the City’s 311 system by calling 3-1-1 or through the City’s service request website www.cityofchicago.org/311. The property owner’s contact information and the property address are required at the time of request.
