$5.5M in place to move forward paving subdivisions


August 05, 2014
JOHNS CREEK, Ga.— Johns Creek can move forward repaving city subdivision streets according to its resurfacing plan now that the Georgia Transportation Infrastructure Bank's (GTIB) $4 million loan to the city has been secured.

The city will add $1.5 million to the GTIB balance and begin paving in the spring of 2015.

The city will follow its needs study survey to determine which subdivisions will be paved in its five-year plan.

In the map shown are subdivisions that will be paved in each of the five years. The map's key is color-coordinated listing the city subdivisions marked for re-pavement in each year of the plan.

Some subdivisions will not be paved in the first five years.

At the end of the plan, a new assessment will determine the repaving needs based on wear of the roads and their respective needs.

The original repaving study identified $30 million in resurfacing needs. The city has restated the estimate now stands at $40 million.

"In 2006, the city of Johns Creek inherited a street system that was far below standard," said Mayor Mike Bodker. "Since then, we have put tremendous effort into upgrading major roads and working closely with the Georgia Department of Transportation to see that state routes are properly maintained."

    Plan not sustainable
    August 06, 2014 | 01:55 PM

    The interest costs on the GTIB loan are $1.5 million so only $4 million is available for paving. The paving plan is not sustainable because it fails to address all subdivisions, and many of the subdivisions not addressed are close to 25 years old and will soon require repaving.

    A better plan would have included all the subdivisions and identified when they were last paved. A sustainable plan would be a continuing plan, not a one shot deal, and would repave subdivision streets as they reach twenty-five years of use.

    to first commenter, I believe t is based on road conditions period. I live in a 29 yr old subdivision and the roads are so bad with every rain the gravel from the crumbling road goes into the storm drain at the front of my property, and has already in the last few years caused my property to flood because the water had no where to go. No fun. Blasting out the drain by the city was a temp fix. Glad to see we are getting new road next year.
