JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – The Johns Creek Public Works Department recently finished its third round of a four-year program to repave its neighborhood streets.
Repaving crews resurfaced 22.76 miles of streets in 17 subdivisions, including The Falls of Autry Mill, one of the City’s largest.
Crews also repaved three main roads: Rogers Circle, Findley Road, and Morton Road.
“We are thrilled to have completed another year of the repaving initiative,” said Mayor Mike Bodker. “The Public Works Department has done an exceptional job of continuing the program and more of our city’s neighborhoods are enjoying repaired streets and enhanced curb appeal.”
In 2011, a consultant drove a specially equipped vehicle down each of Johns Creek’s streets to gauge their conditions.
Using that data as a guide, the Public Works staff developed a repaving plan for the City’s subdivisions.
The physical survey of city streets revealed that many of them had a substandard Pavement Quality Index, a scale developed by the Corps of Engineers to measure cracking, potholes, rutting, weathering and other factors. Low PQI scores reflect poor condition of pavement.
The lower the PQI score, the higher the ranking when scheduling the repaving.
In 2017, the City budgeted approximately $5,000,000 to resurface subdivision roads and approximately $687,000 to repave main roads.
