Sidewalk RepairSidewalk Grinding/Concrete Repairs
The City is continuously identifying locations where hardscape has been raised along public walkways on both streets and in parks. As those locations are identified, a City contractor completes grinding and concrete repairs as needed. The City is currently marking repair locations citywide. If you see orange paint on a sidewalk, that is likely indicating a location where grinding is planned. If you have any questions or would like to report a location that needs attention, please contact City of Dana Point Public Works & Engineering Services Department, Robert French, Streets Manager, at (949) 248-3589.
