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 segment in the City of Oakland, please click here.
Current Paving Construction Activities
The following schedule is subject to change due to unforeseen conditions, productivity or asphalt availability.
Pending the weather, Alcatraz Ave from Telegraph Ave to Dover is scheduled for pavement preventive maintenance. Traffic striping removal is scheduled for April 3rd and 4th. Crack sealing of pavement is scheduled for Monday, April 7th. The duration is one day. A slurry seal will follow for two days of operation.
Paving Work-Planned & Completed
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.

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
