City launches fifth year of neighborhood repaving

April 26, 2019

Neighborhood RepavingThis spring, the Johns Creek Public Works Department launches its fifth consecutive year of repaving the city’s neighborhood streets.

Crews are slated to pave 8.5 miles in 16 neighborhoods and 3.3 miles of main roads this year. A repaving schedule is available on the city’s website. Please note the schedule is subject to change due to weather and availability of additional crews.

The original five-year Neighborhood Repaving program was completed in four years (2015-2018). After a pavement condition study was conducted in 2018, a new list was created for subdivisions to be resurfaced over the next five years (2019-2024). 

The city 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 prioritized 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). 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 within the repaving schedule.  The city is resurfacing all roads below a PQI score of 70.
