Milling & Deep Patching

Our responsibility for milling and deep-patching operations are in conjunction with the Engineering Department resurfacing contract. This contract is put out for bid each year by the Engineering Department and awarded to a resurfacing contractor. The Engineering Department provides us with the list of roads for this contract which will consist of completing approximately 45 miles of deep patching per year. Our crew uses a milling machine which mills out old asphalt at various depths and then reinstalls hot mix asphalt which is placed by a spreader and packed by a vibratory roller. After that process is completed the contractor that was awarded the bid for re-surfacing will place the final topping across the whole road. It can take anywhere from one day to more than a week to complete a large road or neighborhood. Please contact the Engineering Department at 770-781-2165 for any road resurfacing information.

Asphalt Millings

Each year with our milling/deep patching operation we might have an excess of asphalt millings not needed for our stock pile.  When this occurs, we are able to deliver within a close proximity of the milling operation.  This offer is for DELIVERY ONLY and the county WILL NOT SPREAD any material for any reason. Additionally no millings will be loaded onto privately owned vehicles and can not be used for re-sale.  A completed "Right to Enter Agreement" form must be submitted for your request of asphalt millings. The form is available on this web page or at the Engineering Department, 110 East Main Street, Suite 120, Cumming, 30040 (770-781-2165). The form must be completed in full with all the property owners signatures and returned to the Engineering Department. Once approved, these forms are sent to the Roads and Bridges division and added to a contact listing for asphalt millings. The location for dumping must be identified on the "Right to Enter Agreement" and be clearly marked at the physical site before any millings can be delivered.
