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):
- San Leandro, 56.
- Hayward, 69.
- San Ramon, 76
- Pleasanton, 77
- Livermore, 78
- Dublin, 84
