Roads In Castro Valley, San Lorenzo Okay?

A Metropolitan Transportation Committee report finds Alameda County streets above the Bay Area average. Which local streets need repair?


Things could be worse.

That sums up a report by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission that evaluated local road conditions in 109 communities. 

The MTC's Pavement Condition Index, or PCI, considers a score above 80 good.

An MTC press release says the Bay Area has 42,600 miles of local streets and roads with an overall PCI of 66. 

Most of the communities in the survey were cities.

Castro Valley, San Lorenzo, Ashland and Cherryland were not rated individually.

Instead they are lumped together under the general ranking for Alameda County.

The report found that the county maintained 995 miles of roads that had a PCI score of 73 last year. That is up from 69 in 2006 

Among local comparisons (city, PCI):

  1. San Leandro, 56.
  2. Hayward, 69.
  3. Danville,72
  4. San Ramon, 76
  5. Pleasanton, 77
  6. Livermore, 78
  7. Dublin, 84

A reader sent this to me by email: Tom The only roads that are in good condition in Castro Valley are: the Boulevard (now) and some of the arteries coming off the Boulevard. Have you driven up Lake Chabot by the hospital? Or the mid-century home areas off Lake Chabot (Brookdale Blvd, Carlwyn, Carlton, Seven Hils, Mayflower, Carmel, and others? Seriously there are whole sections peeled down 6 inches or alligator-ready to peel. Seriously the street sweepers came by last week and took off 30 lbs of streeet. Now there's more..

Have you been on Stanton lately? IMHO it deserves a PCI of 30. Potholes galore from Somerset all the way up to Crest. I've relatives from what used to be 3rd world countries pity us on the poor condition of this street. They managed to pave other streets around it (Sydney/Sheffield) recently which was already in above grade condition. Go figure!
