A new sidewalk being placed between Martin Street and Dell Street in downtown Jefferson has to be replaced after it was found to be too high.
Jefferson city manager John Ward said the sidewalk, as well as the curb and gutter, was put in too high.
“The contractor has agreed to correct this by removing the newly-poured items and to replace it at no additional cost to the city,” Ward said.
The problem was discovered last week when city of Jefferson staff, along with project managers with Bron Cleveland, Clark Patterson Engineering and Tri Scapes, met at the site to conduct a project review of the downtown streetscape project.
Demolition and replacement work has already began.
The sidewalk is part of the streetscape project in the downtown Jefferson area.
