Los Angeles city leaders have spent months discussing the best strategy for assessing the condition of thousands of miles of broken and buckled sidewalks. With the total cost of repairs expected to reach $1.5 billion, officials warn an exhaustive survey of the damage could take three years to complete and cost more than $10 million.

Readers can submit reports to the Times' own database of damaged sidewalks by snapping a picture and uploading it to our online form, sending an email to latimessidewalks@gmail.com with the photo as an attachment, or tweeting a photo with the address using the hashtag #lasidewalks.

If you send an email, please let us know the approximate address of the damage in the subject line, and describe the problem in the body of the message.


Broken meter cover on sidewalk

23:26 Dec 24 2012 Magnolia Boulevard & Hazeltine Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 91423, USA

On the southwest corner of Magnolia and Hazeltine in Van Nuys (91401) there is a broken meter cover the gives in a little when you step on it. It is cracked in an "L" shape. I think eventually someone might break their ankle on it.
