Johns Creek completes fourth year of Neighborhood Repaving program

November 01, 2018

Neighborhood RepavingThe Johns Creek Public Works Department has finished its fourth round of repaving neighborhood streets.

Repaving crews resurfaced 34.13 miles of streets in 30 subdivisions. Crews also repaved five main roads: Addison Way, Lakefield Drive, Parsons Road, Ventana Way, and Wilson Road.

“We are thrilled to have completed another year of the repaving initiative,” said Mayor Mike Bodker. “More neighborhoods are enjoying smooth streets and enhanced curb appeal. The Public Works Department has done an exceptional job continuing this program.”

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 (PQI), 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 2018, a consultant reassessed all neighborhood streets for an updated PQI score for each subdivision. Based on the score, the City approved a new 5-year Neighborhood Repaving program that will start in 2019.
