Does your sidewalk look like this & need to be replaced?
cracked sidewalk

The City of Dearborn Heights has started a Voluntary Sidewalk Replacement Program.

  • Residents can have slabs of their sidewalk replaced at a much lower cost through the City rather than finding their own contractor.
  • The cost to the resident is $200 a slab, plus a flat $75 administration fee, which also covers the cost of the permit.

For more information or to be placed on the list, please contact the Building Department by phone at (313) 791-3470 or by email at
