Expenses are associated with replacement and/or upgrades to pavement surfaces. These efforts include crack & chip seal, pavement overlay, and full depth pavement replacement depending on the existing pavement degradation and roadway classification. On November 1, 2011, the Mayor and Commission approved the initial SPLOST 2011 Program Implementation Schedule identifying the annual funding from the SPLOST 2011 Project 26 to support the annual Pavement Management Program in conjunction with annual appropriations from the ACCGOV General Fund and the GDOT Local Maintenance Improvement Grant (LMIG). The annual PMP work plan is approved by Mayor and Commission considering all three funding sources identified.
The CY2019 PMP includes the resurfacing of 54 lane miles of roadway and preservative treatment of multiple roads throughout Athens-Clarke County. The contractor has begun the annual paving program and performed preparatory resurfacing work, including chip-seal, crack-seal, milling, and deep patching ahead of the resurfacing and overlay operations. Work will continue throughout the summer with completion anticipated by fall 2019.
