Pavement Rehabilitation, provides funding to ongoing necessary preventive maintenance, road reconstruction, and rehabilitation activities for various streets and roadways throughout Athens-Clarke County. The project includes crack sealing, full depth patching, resurfacing, and roadway reconstruction with the intent to preserve and extend the life of existing roadways. All roads with widths that meet or exceed 28’ will be considered for modifications to pavement markings with the goal of improving accessibility and mobility for all transportation modes.
The CY2019 PMP includes the resurfacing of 54 lane miles of roadway and preservative treatment of multiple roads throughout Athens-Clarke County. The M&C approved the CY 2019 PMP Resolution and Contract Renewal on April 2, 2019. Nightly work on major roads including Dr. MLK Parkway, Oglethorpe Ave, College Ave, W. Hancock Ave (with new bike lane configurations), and Baxter St is complete. Permanent pavement markings will be installed within 60 days from new pavement installation. Work on the remaining roads will continue throughout the fall with completion anticipated by November 2019.
