City engineer Jonathan Miller outlined the problem to the City Council on April 19, using data collected by IMS Paving Assessment. A 2014 study showed the average street had a quality rating of 81, but that rating has slipped to 61, which means many of the city’s 193 miles of roads need extensive and costly repairs. Garbage trucks and other heavy vehicles were cited as a major cause of road damage. The city plans to maximize SPLOST and annual budget funds to catch up on repaving.
