Oakland’s three-year average street Pavement Condition Index (PCI) is currently 60 (on a 100-point scale) and falling. Oakland's pavement condition is ranked 98th among 109 Bay Area jurisdictions, while the Bay Area average is 66. The City’s current backlog of street repairs is $443 million and growing.
Examples of paving programs include: Oakland LSR Resurfacing and Pothole Blitz
Repairing sidewalks & installing curb ramps:
Sidewalks must be maintained or even newly constructed in areas that lack adequate pedestrian sidewalks. In addition, updated ADA accessibility guidelines require that Oakland’s curb ramps be renewed to ensure the safety of all pedestrians and reduce risky collisions.
Examples of such projects include: Telegraph Avenue Complete Street
Installing transit and pedestrian friendly street designs (road “diets”, traffic calming, bulb-outs, etc.):
Traffic and pedestrian signals improve safety by providing protected crossings to improve pedestrian connection, increase ADA access, and improve visibility.
Examples of projects include: Fruitvale Alive Gap Closure, Lakeside Green Street, San Leandro Creek Greenway, and the Stair and Path Repair Program
Maintaining the City’s streetlights, signage and other street infrastructure:
This infrastructure is critical to maintain in order to provide wayfinding signs and well-lit streets.
Examples of projects include: Laurel Access to Mills, Maxwell Park and Seminary (LAMMPS) Streetscape
Installing bicycle lanes and parking:
Bicyclists often find themselves in conflict with motor vehicles and pedestrians. It is important to maintain Oakland’s bicycle paths and amenities to ensure the safety and comfort of bicyclists of all ages and abilities.
Examples of projects include: Lakeside Family Streets, East Bay Greenway, and San Leandro Creek Greenway
