Mill Creek Public Works contractor crews this summer smoothed out sidewalks that were buckling from tree roots. Crews from Precision Concrete Cutting ground down the concrete to smooth the surface without harming the trees.
About 60 tripping hazard sites were addressed, including near Mill Creek Sports Park and sections along Seattle Hill Road.
Mill Creek residents can report problem areas like this online at cityofmillcreek.com/RequestTracker.aspx.
