There's a big crack in the sidewalk on our street. Who's responsible for repairs?
The Street Division is responsible for repairing public sidewalks in Portland. If you notice a damaged sidewalk, call our Public Works Department at (361) 777-4601. A supervisor will inspect the area and place the damaged location on a schedule.

Due to limited funding, we are only able to repair a limited number of sites every year. Repairs are prioritized by a number of important factors, including the extent of damage and the site's proximity to schools, churches and other public buildings. Of course, especially hazardous sites are repaired immediately.
