The Chicago Department of Transportation administers the Shared Cost Sidewalk Program (SCSP) each year. Traditionally, the program to Chicago property owners opens on New Year’s Day, January 1, 12:01 a.m. We would like to inform you of a change in the opening date and time for the 2015 Shared Cost Sidewalk Program.


There have been numerous complaints from citizens that the New Year’s Day program opening is not convenient. In many circumstances the property owners are on vacation during the entire application period. In order to address this issue CDOT will open the 2015 Shared Cost Sidewalk Program on Tuesday, January 13, 2015, at 12:01 a.m.


SCSP applicants can begin by calling the City’s 311 System or access the City’s service request website at 12:01am on Tuesday, January 13th.
