Why Sidewalks, Curbs, and Public Walkways Should be Repaired for the Holiday Season

As top-rated commercial concrete contractors in Philadelphia, we understand the importance of well-maintained sidewalks, curbs, steps, and access ramps. These areas are crucial for the safety of thousands of pedestrians and must be maintained to avoid endangering people. If you’re a business owner in Philadelphia, we recommend thoroughly inspecting the paving and sidewalk surrounding your property before the holiday season begins and foot traffic increases. Check out this video on the benefits of safe walkways for pedestrians and businesses alike, then keep reading for a deeper dive into how Associated Paving Contractors can help.

The Benefits of Sidewalks

Sidewalks clearly define a separated walkway to safely accommodate pedestrians walking along with traffic. They provide mobility, security, and help develop communities. Sidewalks also reduce the number of accidents caused by pedestrians walking along the road. Roadways without sidewalks can rack up double the number of crashes than sites with pavement on both sides of the street.

Safe Walkways for Businesses

The holiday season is fast approaching, which means many businesses will see a considerable increase in the number of pedestrians on their public walkways, curbs, sidewalks, and paths as people shop. If you are a business owner that is aware of damage in any of these areas, it’s time to get them inspected and fixed by a professional.

If someone trips and injures themselves as a result of uneven concrete, potholes, or chipped asphalt, you could be liable for their medical expenses. Shrugging off a faulty sidewalk that may only be a few hundred dollars or less to repair could end up costing your business thousands of dollars in legal fees.
