City to begin 2021 Neighborhood Repaving program

April 19, 2021

This spring, the Johns Creek Public Works Department launched its seventh year of repaving the city’s neighborhood streets.
 
Crews are slated to pave 11 neighborhoods this year. A repaving schedule will be available on the city’s website and is subject to change due to weather and availability of additional crews.

The schedule also includes repaving main roads: State Bridge Road (Jones Bridge Road to Johns Creek High School) and Buice Road at Spruill Road intersection asphalt work, as well as the Shakerag Park track.

In 2020, the city resurfaced nine miles of streets in eight neighborhoods and three miles of nine main roads.
 
In 2018, 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 many 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.
