$5.5M in place to move forward paving subdivisions

Posted:

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.”
