Brookhaven’s summer paving program wrapped up May 31, putting the city a year ahead of schedule of a 5-year plan, according to the city. The last streets paved were Winchester Trail and Clearview Drive.
The city’s 5-year program, from 2017-2021, is being funded with the special local option sales tax dollars DeKalb voters approved in 2016. The list of roads to be paved was determined by the City Council that year based on scientific data known as the pavement condition index.
“Since that time, we’ve always been working ahead of schedule,” Public Works Director Hari Karikaran said in a news release. “The roads we paved this year were originally on the 2020 paving list.”
A total of 6.85 lane-miles on 20 different streets were resurfaced this year. Over the past three years Brookhaven has paved more than 46 lane-miles on 127 streets, Karikaran said.
