They are working on the street in front of my office. So a guy comes in today and asks me to move my telephone pole. I was like HUH? He said we need you to move your telephone pole by noon, it's in the sidewalk. I said I don't have the resources or the desire to move a telephone pole, that is a TECO (our elec company) issue.

So sure enough I go out for lunch at noon and I see this. In addition to the pole they could not even line up the sidewalks LOL.

That's an ADA violation. No way a wheelchair could go down the sidewalk.

You can bet I am going to talk to the city. This is totally ridiculous.

too funny,

on the opposite side of the street, it looks like there will be 2 power poles and maybe a palm tree in the sidewalk!

Good point. 👍 That pole is either gonna come out or the sidewalk redone around it. I can't see that being code.

Aren't sidewalks a public easement, so the sidewalk has the "right of way" so to speak?? (doubt that's the right term but you get my point, hopefully?)

They will really mess up that sidewalk when they do pull that telephone pole.

Usually that stuff is done first. As for the sidewalk lining up, that’s the new style. Nothing is straight anymore. Streets, sidewalks are all curvy.
