Problem with paving stones on short walkway

Hi, I'm going to be putting in a little walkway in our new house between the sidewalk and the street. Here's a picture of the area.

The walkway will be a little wider than what I've dug out so far. I'll be putting in paving stones of some sort, with gravel underlayment and sand on top of that. The problem is in the upper right corner of that area.

The walkway will go inside the large metal cover, but there is the drain cover for our sewer connection. This needs to be reachable somehow. I can either build around it and put some contraption over it, or just support it somehow and put a stone right on top of it. Then I'll just remember where it is in case I need access. Probably will be using 12" square stones.
Suggestions?

If it is low enough I would just put the pavers on top and then mark the curb using a brick hammer or hammer and chisel to indicate where the clean out is. It is common to mark a curb or building foundation with an arrow and 2' if the cleanout is 2' from the wall/curb.

Did this a few years ago. The concrete box broke but my utility company gave me a new box and cover and I installer it where the top of the cover is 1/4" above the top of the pavers. Setting up the box and cutting the pavers around it was a PIA but looks great once its finished. Same for the sewer drain and extension is available so you could install flush with the top of the pavers.
You could avoid all this by adjusting the pathway away from the box and drain as an option.

What concrete box? I'm not sure what you mean.

Not really an option - it's right at the bottom of some stairs.

What is below the metal cover on the second pic far right? Usually a precast concrete box but could be anything without seeing it?
