Sidewalk & Curb Complaints

300 E Park Ridge Road

Case Date:
9/22/2013

Neighbor has a new asphalt "ramp"to driveway blocking water runoff. I definitely understand the need for the ramp. However,could there be a way to open up a small channel through it? This photo of the standing water was taken on Sunday - 48 hours after the last rain. There was already a tendency for debris and muck to accumulate there before this. Thanks for any help.

Sidewalk & Curb Complaints

Case Date:
1/13/2014

The property owner just south of me added a driveway ramp in September 2013 that completely prevents water runoff on the east side of N. Park Ridge Rd. (My property is #300). Water stands for weeks without draining. It is a traffic hazard - especially now when it completely freezes over. (I spoke with members of the street dept. who were out trying to clear the area during the last storm on Jan. 5/6. They told me they would report it to the dept.). It will be an even more severe health hazard in the spring/summer during mosquito breeding season. I understand the need for the ramp. However, could you persuade this resident to at least partially remove some of the ramp to allow water to effectively drain once again - please? I made a report on this issue in September 2013. According to this program the case was/is closed. However no action was taken and the situation persists.

At (or very close to) 509 N Lincoln St there has been water flowing onto the sidewalk for months. There is now a huge mud slick across several yards of sidewalk that everyone waking on that side has to step into the street to avoid.

2321 S Montclair AVE

Case Date:
7/3/2014

Crews have patched potholes on Montclair Ave within the last few weeks, but they missed an area that is on the edge of the roadway, next to the curb, near the southeast corner of Montclair, right near the intersection with Rock Creek. There are several holes that fill with water after a storm, leaving standing water that will encourage mosquito breeding. Please come back and fix this spot. Thanks, John

Sidewalk & Curb Complaints

612–622 W Smith Ave

Case Date:
8/16/2017

Lack of curb from Smith Ave where it boarders my property is leading to water run off as it runs down Jackson St to collect on the back of my property. My husband and have put in a lot of time cleaning up this area from previous owner over-growth. The soft ground, combined with lack of curb is causing the property to erode away and cars to run off the edge of the road causing Smith to deteriorate. The area is strip about 30 ft long. If something could be done about this or to change how people turn right of Jackson onto Smith it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

Water struggles to get around e Morningside and n Sheffield without pooling. Any chance curb can be built up a bit there or the cement can be shaved a bit to let the water keep flowing by? Thanks!

Hey, all. I'm at 4021 E. Morningside Drive. Unfortunately I've been experiencing some drainage issues at my corner since the installation of a wheelchair ramp for the sidewalk. There was no issue prior. Terrific having the ramp for folks, plus the earlier sidewalk, but unfortunately it has no lip on it at all. As you can see in the photo, the street is essentially level with part of my yard now, allowing even the smallest rain to flood the corner. I'd love to grow grass but am having difficulties because of the situation. There was grass prior, but someone crashed into the streetlamp, and when it was replaced, the ground got torn up a bit. Beyond my yard, a small pool exists along the corner until it dries out as well, as it is unable to pass on through. Also sediment as you can see in the photo (taken tonight a few hours after the end of today's misting) is washed into the street with each rain. Please see if there can be just the smallest bit of lip and/or incline added with the ramp/sidewalk to keep the water moving instead of creating a muddy corner. Thank you for any help! (Or ideas!) Any chance you all might have a square foot of sod that is fairly water tolerant that can just be placed down there? Might solve my issue without any need for changing anything with the concrete assuming it takes root. I appreciate the consideration and help. There is also a bus stop right at the corner, so more than just helping me, it keeps the bus waiters from standing in the mud.
