National Walk to Work Day

National Walk-to-Work Day is April 1, 2016, and agencies should be prepared for an increase in foot traffic on this day, as employees look to reap the health benefits of walking. On a day such as this one, agencies are reminded of the importance of having a comprehensive sidewalk maintenance plan. The California JPIA offers a number of resources to assist members with their sidewalk maintenance efforts. These include a master service agreement between the Authority and Precision Concrete Cutting allowing members to take advantage of favorable pricing related to sidewalk inspection and maintenance; a “Slip and Trip” white paper, which illustrates the importance of an effective sidewalk maintenance program; and a sidewalk inspection program template used to report and schedule sidewalk repairs. All of this information can be found in the Resources and Documents library on the Authority’s website.
