Learn more about the Five-Year Paving Plan and find out how you can stay connected to these streets as they get repaved

Next summer, the City of Oakland Department of Transportation (OakDOT) will be repaving many streets throughout Oakland from major corridors to neighborhood streets.

This is in large part due to many Oaklanders voting “YES” to the Infrastructure Bond (Measure KK) in 2016. So, what does that mean when it comes to repaving your streets?

The approval of Measure KK gives the City of Oakland an opportunity to accelerate the completion of our Five-Year Pavement Prioritization Plan. This plan was adopted by Oakland City Council in 2014, identifying and prioritizing approximately 49 miles of roadways to be maintained and improved.

Here are the some of the initial areas we will be focusing on:

  • 90th Avenue from Bancroft Avenue to International Avenue (E14th Street)
  • Bancroft Avenue from High Street to International Avenue (E14th Street)
  • Havenscourt Boulevard from Bancroft Avenue to International Avenue (E14th Street)
  • High Street to to International Avenue (E14th Street)
  • MacArthur Boulevard from 73rd Avenue to 82nd Avenue
  • Plymouth Avenue from 78th Avenue to 104th Avenue

Check out the Paving Dashboard to find out what’s already been paved and see what streets are up next!

Over the next couple of months, be on the lookout for streets in your neighborhood that are scheduled to be repaved and opportunities to ask for additional improvements – crosswalks that are bright and easy to see or ways to slow down speeding cars.

More about Paving in Oakland:

The street pavement rehabilitation program works to preserve the City’s infrastructure, enhance public access and protect the public from hazardous conditions. The goal of this program is to design, develop and maintain safe and comfortable streets for people driving, biking, and riding transit while also enhancing the experience and safety of pedestrians.

Paving in Oakland is paid for by voter-approved funds that must be used on transportation. These funds include local sales taxes (Measure B and Measure BB), state gas taxes (SB1), and the newly passed local Infrastructure Bond (Measure KK).
