Draft Five-Year Paving Plans
Draft Five-Year Paving Plans are now being developed. The following two maps show Draft Five-Year Paving Plans in development under two scenarios. The first scenario assumes current levels of funding for street rehabilitation. The second shows the potential plan if Measure B-1 is passed by voters in November. These draft plans are the initial results of the StreetSaver Pavement Management and are subject to change based on utility coordination and other considerations but provide a general description of the likely paving programs under the two scenarios. Once funding levels are known a final draft plan will be presented to the City Council for adoption.

Five-Year Paving Plan
On November 6, 2007, City Council adopted a policy dedicating eighty percent (80%) of pavement rehabilitation funds toward rehabilitation of the streets on this list, selected as those that have the highest benefit of rehabilitation in terms of overall pavement preservation. Each year a few of these streets will be rehabilitated. Because of limited funding, as of Fall 2012, approximately 70% of this work is complete. [ List | Map]
These streets have been resurfaced within the last five years. Cutting trenches in streets leads to early deterioration. To help preserve newly resurfaced streets, Oakland requires any entity that cuts into streets that are on the Five-Year Moratorium to restore the streets per City standards and requirements. List Map

FAU Streets Streets are broken into three categories: Arterial, Collector and Residential. Arterial Streets are streets are high capacity urban roads that connect to freeways and urban centers. Collector Streets are low to moderate capacity streets that move traffic from residential areas to Arterial Streets. The third category of streets is Residential. Arterial and Collector Streets are designated as FAU, or "Federal Aid Urban" streets, and federal funding may only be used on those streets. This map shows Oakland streets designated as Arterial and Collector
