Chamblee Paving Nearly Complete


In 2016, Chamblee assumed responsibility for roadway maintenance from DeKalb County. After years of little to no paving inactivity, Chamblee’s roadway system was in need of repair. Anticipating the roadway takeover, Chamblee’s Mayor and Council authorized a pavement assessment study that would catalog roadway conditions and provide the City with a blueprint for a paving program. The Mayor and Council also authorized funds for potholes and patching of the City’s roadways leading to a paving program.  The pothole repairs would be performed on smaller pavement issues, whereas patching would be more in-depth and include repair of the road base. The City signed a contract with A&S Paving to perform pothole and patching services. As complaints come in for potholes, a list is developed and given to A&S Paving to repair. Generally, these repairs will occur during spring and summer months. This year A&S will be called upon again to repair reported pothole issues. They will begin the repairs in May.

The City of Chamblee recently contracted with C.W. Matthews, Inc. to provide paving services. The City will be paving approximately eight miles of roadways during 2017. This represents a little more than 10 percent of the City’s roadway network. Using the paving assessment study and coordinating around various on-going construction projects, the following streets were approved for paving this year:

Chamblee Dunwoody Road between Harts Mill Road and Savoy Drive* (Currently paving)

North Shallowford Road between Ellwyn Drive and Savoy Drive* (Complete)

Peachtree Industrial Court between Peachtree Boulevard and Dead End (Removed)

Chamblee Tucker Road between Peachtree Boulevard and New Peachtree Road**(Removed)

New Peachtree Road from Doraville City Limits to Clairmont Road*

Johnson Ferry Road*

Commodore Drive from North Shallowford Road to Dead End (Complete)

Spring Walk Court (Complete except for cul-de-sac, A&S Paving needs to patch)

Elm Street (Complete)

Plaster Road from Dresden Drive to Buford Highway (Removed)

Johnson Road from Shallowford Road to Dead End* (Complete)

Warwick Circle (Complete)

Beverly Hills Drive from Buford Highway to Stratford Arms Drive

Cumberland Drive from Shallowford Road to Chamblee Tucker Road*

Whispering Hills Court (Removed)

Alcoa Court (Removed)

Dresden Court between Plaster Road and Dresden Drive (Complete)

Woodacres Road** (Added, currently paving)

Malabar Drive** (Added)

Wentworth Drive** (Added)

Dover Hill Place** (Added)

Jordan Terrace** (Added)

*For the initial paving, these major corridors were selected as they were in poor condition and they carry the most traffic through and across Chamblee. 

**Due to coordination with a construction project, Chamblee Tucker Road was removed and replaced with Woodacres Drive. Woodacres was chosen as the cost for paving Chamblee Tucker Road and Woodacres Drive were comparable. Also, the contractor would not have to charge for additional mobilization since they are currently working in the Woodacres Drive area.
