removing/replacing concrete stoop


I am replacing a 36"steel door with a 60" french door. there is a 36" concrete stoop that needs to be removed and replaced with a wider one. The concrete stoop extends up and underneath the threshold. I'm not sure how the stoop ties into the block foundation and what I will end up with when I break the concrete threshold out.
I had a concrete contractor look at it but he didnt seem familiar with the design. Every house on our block has this design where the concrete extends up and under the threshold.
Any insight would be helpful.

the steps were built to sit ON the block rather'n adjoining the blocks,,, you might find just cutting the steps flush w/block wall's be a solution,,, shame ' those guys ' got pd & they're gone - couldda left a note, at least, huh ?

Sure, then what? I have a 1/2 concrete-1/2 frame threshold? and how will the new stoop be attached to the foundation?
