Availability of Salvaged Paving Bricks/Stones

Paving bricks and stones were commonly used to pave streets during the late 1800s and early 1900s. When streets are reconstructed, pavers may be removed or unearthed and recovered in varying conditions. Because the public has shown an interest in making use of old paving bricks and stones, Public Works makes some of them available for purchase.

Salvaged granite brick pavers are available on a first come/first served basis to the general public, as well as to City NRP neighborhood organizations, departments and agencies. Quantities, types and conditions of the materials may vary as supplies become available and last.
