A review of the city’s paving plan shows Brookhaven has paved nearly 19 percent of its streets since it incorporated three years ago and the number of streets being patched and paved increased each year.
In 2016, the city is on track to pave 4.57 miles at a cost of $1.4 million. In 2013, the city conducted a laser truck survey of all streets and in 2014 started paving, covering 8.57 miles at a cost of $1.74 million. In 2015, the city paved 9.62 miles at a cost of $2.52 million, according to a presentation by City Manager Christian Sigman and Public Works Director Richard Meehan at the Sept. 13 City Council meeting.
Funding for the paving came out of the city’s Homestead Optional Sales Tax and Georgia Department of Transportation grants.
In 2013, the city’s streets were ranked, with 20 percent considered in excellent condition, according to national standards. Today, 31 percent of the city’s streets are considered to be in excellent shape.
Sigman and Meehan suggested the council purchase Lucidity Software to prioritize streets needing to be paved and to help eliminate the backlog of streets that need to be paved within 10 years.
The city also has a five-year paving plan based on the city spending $2.1 million per year plus any GDOT grants it receives.
