The City of Albany street network is comprised of approximately 29.4 centerline miles of which the majority is comprised of residential/local streets (5.7 miles are arterials, 4.3 miles are collectors, and 19.4 miles are residential/local streets).
Albany’s capital improvement plan includes $5.5 million in funding over the next two years and $8.6 million in funding for street rehabilitation projects over the next five years. Streets are selected for rehabilitation using the “Street Saver” program that is distributed and coordinated by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC). In order to maintain good street conditions, all of Albany's streets are evaluated yearly and assigned a Pavement Condition Index or PCI by a pavement consultant so that the overall quality of Albany's roads can be assessed. This is made possible by a grant from the MTC. Pavement Condition Scores are available through the MTC. The PCI is a measurement of pavement grade or condition and ranges from 0 to 100. A newly constructed street would have a PCI of 100, while a failed street would have a PCI of 10 or less. A "very good" condition range is from PCI 70 to 100.
Funding for street improvements comes from Measure F, passed by residents of Albany in 2006 for both street improvements and storm drainage repairs and improvements. Other sources of funding for street rehabilitation projects is Measure B, Measure BB, and Vehicle Registration Fee funds administered by the Alameda County Transportation Commission.
