Johns Creek repaves 22.7 miles of streets

Johns Creek has announced the completion of the third round of a four-year program to repave neighborhood streets.

More than 22.7 miles of streets in 17 subdivisions — including The Falls of Autry Mill, one of the city’s largest — were resurfaced, according to the public works department. Crews also repaved three main thoroughfares: Rogers Circle and Findley and Morton roads.

In 2017, Johns Creek budgeted about $5 million to resurface subdivision streets and roughly $687,000 to repave main roads, officials said.

The repaving program resulted from a consultant’s physical survey of city streets in 2011. The survey showed many streets had a substandard pavement quality index, based on cracking, potholes, rutting, weathering and other factors. The lower the score, the higher a street’s priority for repaving, officials said.
