Public Works Committee October 9, 2012
On October 9, 2012, a presentation on Pavement Asset Report Presentation was made to the City Council Public Works Committee on the current condition of Oakland's streets, along with an analysis of trends and opportunities for improvement.
Pavement Condition Index
The Pavement Condition Index (PCI) is a numerical index between 0 and 100 which is used to indicate the general condition of a pavement. It is widely used in transportation civil engineering. It is a statistical measure and requires manual survey of the pavement. PCI surveying processes and calculation methods used have been standardized by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission(MTC). To view the PCI of each street in the City of Oakland, please view the Pavement Condition Index Map.
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.
