Condition of San Leandro Roads Continues Downward Slide

A report by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission released today found that the condition of San Leandro's roads continues to deteriorate. The Pavement Condition Index (PCI) for San Leandro was 57 in 2010, down from 58 in 2009, and lower than any city in Alameda County except for Oakland.

According to the report, "At 66 out of a possible 100 points, the region’s average pavement condition index (PCI) score is now far closer to the 60-point threshold at which deterioration accelerates rapidly…" The MTC established a goal of 75 for the region's PCI in its Transportation 2035 Plan published two years ago.

San Leandro's PCI has been declining from a high of 64 in 2004 as San Leandro hasn't allocated the estimated five to six million dollars needed annually to maintain the condition of San Leandro's roads. Next year's budget continues that pattern with no general fund money being used for improving roads. All rehabilitation and street sealing done next year will be done using funds from Alameda County's Measure B.
