COLORADO SPRINGS – Repairs to a Colorado Springs sidewalk are being completed sooner than expected.

Earlier this month, News 5 reported on South Corona Ave. and the neighbors who wanted the sidewalks to be repaired.

News 5’s Jessica Barreto asked the City of Colorado Springs for an update on this case on October 4th and since she brought it to their attention this request involves a man with disabilities, therefore making it an ADA issue, Public Works Director Travis Eaton confirmed that the wait time was changed from one year to two weeks.

Now the sidewalk is accessible to everyone, something neighbors are thrilled to see.

“At least people could walk across it with no problem, people in wheelchairs can go up it now and I like it,” said Sheila Howland.

If you would like to report an issue with the city you can use a free app called GoCoSprings the app uses GPS to pinpoint the exact location of the issue.

This map shows the number of sidewalks the city’s responsible for. There is a backlog of repair work that needs to be completed.
