Depends of course on your specific site conditions and access - but for normal readymix truck-acccessible location and decent soils (i.e. not soft, mucky soils like along the sloughs or rivers that might need 1-3 feet of excavation and replacement to create suitable foundation conditions), probably in the $5/SF (plus or minus about $1/SF) range - possible no-insurance, no-bond unlicensed low bid into the $3 something range, especially if fairly level and larger size job.

This does not include any unusual right of way or public easement construction permits if required in your area - check on that. Looks at first glance like about $38 inspection fee for (up to) first 100LF, $9/addl 100 LF, plus $73 permit fee. There may also be fees from water/sewer to be sure you are not covering up shutoff valves or such, or they may do free locates for that.

Houston (City of) has several public-funded sidewalkprograms, so if this is for in front of the house alongthe street check on whether one of those programs will do it -
