With the onset of warm weather, Johns Creek is scheduled to kick off its second year of neighborhood repaving Friday, April 29, as part of a multi-year initiative to resurface subdivision streets citywide.

The plan for 2016 calls for repaving up to 26 neighborhoods, beginning with the Amberleigh subdivision. The original list of 12 subdivisions to be paved was expanded following the City Council’s decision to increase funding for the project from $1.5 million to $5 million in the Fiscal Year 2016 budget. This accelerated approach to neighborhood repaving is projected to reduce the 5-year citywide timeline by a year from 2019 to 2018.

The Public Works Department began a concerted effort to upgrade the condition of the City’s subdivision streets last spring. 

The priority for neighborhood repaving is determined by an assessment known as the Pavement Quality Index (PQI).  The PQI was developed by the Army Corps of Engineers to measure cracking, potholes, rutting, weathering, and other factors.  

Low PQI scores reflect poorer road conditions.  The lower the PQI score for a subdivision, the higher priority it receives for repaving.  PQI scores were determined in 2011 by a consultant who operated a specially equipped vehicle on Johns Creek’s streets to gauge road conditions.
The plan seeks to bring all neighborhoods in Johns Creek to a minimum PQI of 65.
