Oakland's 2019 3-Year Paving Plan has won the California Transportation Foundation Sustainable/Environmental Enhancement Project of the Year.
Until now, Oakland has only been able to prioritize a handful of major streets for repaving due to limited funds. But with Oakland's Infrastructure Bond (Measure KK) and guaranteed gas tax revenues (Senate Bill 1), the city can increase paving on neighborhood streets, while still keeping major roads in good condition.
Following policy direction from City Council, staff developed a plan that incorporates equity, street condition, and safety to prioritize repaving in the next three years.
The Oakland Department of Transportation was given kudos for the achievement in transportation by the foundation.
