DeKalb County-based H.E.H. Paving will begin resurfacing 25 miles of the worst roads and streets including Rainbow Drive, Columbia Drive and River Road.

The paving company was awarded a $1.5 million contract in August 2019 under the county’s Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax(SPLOST) program to resurface the roads. With warm weather under way, road work can begin.

“DeKalb County has a robust local small business enterprise ordinance that works to engage the county’s small businesses through the competitive bid process,” said DeKalb CEO Michael Thurmond. “DeKalb’s SPLOST program is actively promoting program opportunities to ensure fair access to county contracts.”

                                      DeKalb-based H.E.H. Paving is resurfacing 25 miles of roads in DeKalb.

 

To date, nearly $35 million, or more than one third, of SPLOST contracts have been competitively awarded to local small businesses. To learn about how to engage in SPLOST opportunities, visit www.dekalbsplost.com, click “Collateral,” then click “Vendor Fact Sheet.”

Through the SPLOST program, DeKalb County plans to resurface 300 miles of roads. DeKalb County utilizes a worst-first methodology to assign roads for resurfacing. Roads are rated annually for their condition and assigned a number based on cracking, asphalt crumbling, root intrusion and other issues.

Road resurfacing construction is reliant on fair weather; crews must pause work during cold and rainy conditions. Construction starts with road milling and leveling, followed by deep patching, final asphalt topping and temporary traffic striping. Crews return to add permanent traffic striping and complete any follow-up items.
