Since 2009, the city has invested over $12,000,000 in repaving its roads. Approximately 35% of the funding is directed towards high traffic volume roads. The remaining 65% is applied to the lowest rated neighborhood streets based on the citywide Pavement Evaluation.
In 2009, and again in 2013, Public Works completed a pavement evaluation and condition assessment of all of the public streets within the city. The assessment consisted of surveys of each roadway segment to measure roughness, rut depth and crack condition. The assessment provides an objective method to prioritize streets for future repaving.
The data collected on roughness, rut depth, and cracks was used to score each roadway segment with a Pavement Condition Index (PCI) ranging from 10 to 100. The average PCI rating for Dunwoody roads is a 66. Individual roadway segment scores range from 33 to 97.
Compared to the 2009 assessment, the city’s investments in repaving have resulted in significant improvement in the condition of its main thoroughfares with the percentage in good to excellent condition increasing from 45% to 60%. Overall, roughly one-third of city streets are in good to excellent condition, roughly one-third in poor to very poor condition, and roughly one-third are in fair condition.

Current Year Paving Projects
For an expanded look at the paving and infrastructure upgrades planned for 2017, please see the following:
Portions of Chamblee Dunwoody Road slated for paving this year have been delayed in order to coordinate with DeKalb County for the replacement of existing water main lines along these streets. The resurfacing of these roads will follow the completion of the utility work.
