Some other observations from the pictures...

The sloped part of the driveway should have lined up with the edge of the walk. The walk should have been jointed through the driveway. I think the "hump" is just the flattening of the slope to match the walk and meet ADA compliance. It is just in the wrong place and not cut in right.
I agree, I hate the picture frame too...Will never do it.
I know I'm crazy...I love concrete
