Ever wonder how bad your road is? Now you can find out the official Pavement Condition Index (PCI) of your road. This is a measure of road condition on a scale from 1 to 100, with 100 being perfect. Below 30 is considered "failing" and between 31-50 "poor". 74 percent of Sonoma County roads are considered poor or failing.
This report rates the condition of all the 1,370 miles of road in Sonoma County. It was conducted by consultants hired by the county Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW). The survey was conducted in 2012 and 2013 and the report was released in the spring of 2014.
The roads are listed alphabetically A-Z beginning on page 24. The first part of the report provides an interesting overview of pavement conditions and describes the methodology for the survey.
The report lists the road segments evaluated for each road, the PCI rating and estimate of remaining life of the road. As you might expect, many of the roads have zero remaining life.
As the board of supervisors move towards implementing the Long-Term Road Plan, the data in this report will be usefull to community groups who are organizing their neighborhoods to bring attention to their failed roads. If you would like more information on how to organize your neighborhood, see SaveLichauRoad.com.

The board of supervisors has released a draft Long-Term Road Plan that will be discussed on Tuesday, June 17.

Together with the 100 miles recently upgraded, a total of 800 miles (about 58%) of the road system would be in good condition.
