Ramps can join two slabs

ramps joining two cement slabs

Sidewalk sections can be joined by creating a ramp that joins the two sections together. This technique has been used for a long time to reduce the potential trip hazard. The section of the sidewalk that has risen is likely to continue to rise as the tree grows. Please check the other solutions presented on this web page before creating ramps.
