In some cases, your sidewalk might fall below or above the typical range. Several facets can impact total costs, such as the sidewalk’s size, its grade of concrete, and whether it’s reinforced.
On average, most concrete sidewalk installations cost between $5.89 and $12 per square foot.

How Much Does It Cost to Pour a 12×12 Concrete Slab?
Concrete walkway costs vary depending on where you live and whether you want stamped concrete or a simple sidewalk replacement. The national average for a 12-foot by 12-foot concrete sidewalk installed by a contractor is between $680 and $800.
It’s worth getting several cost estimates and asking for them to be itemized so that you have a clearer idea of how much you expect to pay. You may be able to keep costs down by filling a small area as a DIY project because the materials cost is just a small part of the job.
However, if you’ve not carried out a sidewalk replacement job before, you may miss important details such as how many inches thick you need the drive to be and how to use wire mesh to smooth out imperfections in the subgrade and reduce the risk of sinkholes.
How much does a concrete sidewalk cost per foot

Other materials for estimating concrete walkway cost include the form materials and any reinforcements (such as wire mesh or rebar), isolation board (cheap) and sealer (if you want to seal the walkway after the concrete cures). Form materials depend on the project but typically include 2×4 or 2×6 lumber for straight runs and hardboard siding boards for curves, plus loads of wood stakes and plenty of screws. Then there are tool costs, which can add a fair amount to DIY projects. Rental tools may include excavation equipment, heavy-duty wheelbarrows, a tamper and large concrete finishing tools, such as a bull float. You can also rent sets of finishing tools (trowels, edger, groover) or buy or borrow them.
