City begins fourth year of neighborhood repaving

May 04, 2018

Neighborhood RepavingThis spring, the Johns Creek Public Works Department has launched its fourth year of repaving the City’s neighborhood streets.

Crews are slated to pave 30 neighborhoods this year. A repaving schedule is available on the City’s website, and is subject to change due to weather and availability of additional crews.

This will complete the City’s neighborhood resurfacing program with a total of 107 subdivisions resurfaced in four years (2015-2018). 

The City developed its prioritized list in 2014, when it used a consultant with a specially equipped vehicle to drive each of Johns Creek’s streets to gauge their conditions. Using the resulting data as a guide, the Public Works staff developed a repaving plan for the City’s subdivision.

The physical survey of city streets revealed that many of them had a substandard Pavement Quality Index (PQI). The PQI is a 1-100 scale developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to measure cracking, potholes, rutting, weathering and other factors. Low PQI scores reflect a lower condition of the pavement. The lower the PQI score, the higher the priority when scheduling the repaving.  The City’s plan seeks to bring all neighborhoods in Johns Creek to a minimum PQI of 65.
