Sidewalk Requests

Requesting the construction of a new sidewalk is a lengthy process that typically takes several years and requires input from numerous Town boards and committees. Depending on the eventual scale and scope of a request, it may also involve securing funding from Town Meeting.   The sidewalk request process provides an outline of the steps that should be followed when a resident, or group of residents, are interested in the creation of a new sidewalk.  Information is posted at the bottom of the page.

For additional information please contact Sheila Page, Assistant Planning Director at spage@lexingtonma.gov.

Sidewalk Requests  -  Current Status

    Cedar Street

    The blue lines represent the potential sidewalk location based on a 5’ sidewalk set at the edge of the current roadway (no grass strip between the roadway and sidewalk). The red lines represent property lines.   The Conceptual plan is posted here: https://www.lexingtonma.gov/sites/g/files/vyhlif7101/f/uploads/cedar_sw_sketch-blue.pdf

    Please note: At this time, sidewalk is being considered on one side only. The decision on which side of the street the sidewalk is located is based on a study of potential impacts conducted during the design process.  This presentation is in concept only showing how a sidewalk could fit. Having the sidewalk alternate sides of the street will be reviewed, however roadway crossings are seen as detrimental to the overall project.
