Public park has the doorway portion of the sidewalk is tied to the foundation of the building, however the sidewalk surrounding the building was not tied into the foundation. This is allowing the building and the sidewalk to settle at different rates, resulting in an uneven walking condition and dangerous trip hazards. Earlier attempts by the Parks and Recreation department to blend the uneven concrete sidewalk was only partially successful.
Concrete patches were removed using a jackhammer and cleared out. PolyLevel PL250 was pumped into the lower portions of the concrete sidewalk to lift it to the sidewalk portions that were tied to the pavilion foundation. Required lift was from between ½” in the lowest areas to over 3” in the portions where there was the most dramatic settling. Some concrete seams were cut to remedy binding between the two slabs to allow free movement to allow the low slab to rise. In some areas, mechanical slab lifters were used to help the PolyLevel Lifting process blend the slab levels more easily.
