Streets and Roads

STREET REPAIR

The City repairs potholes and irregularities in the paved surface of City streets on an "as needed" basis. There are also a number of utility companies that need to gain access to their equipment through the street. If you see conditions that require repair, please contact the Public Works Department at (510) 724-9010 or email at pubwks@ci.pinole.ca.us  and we will notify the appropriate department or utility company. You may also contact Junior Castro at (510)741-2065 or email jcastro@ci.pinole.ca.us

The City has a 2016 Pavement Management Report that recommends street maintenance by section for programming into the City's Capital Improvement Program. The recommendations in the report are the result of a decision making matrix that recognizes the City does not have enough resources to fund all desired road maintenance. The focus of repair is, therefore, on road sections that are in fair to good condition. This focus allows the City to maintain fair to good sections at a lower unit cost. The Metropolitan Transportation Committee provides guidance to the City through its pavement technical assistance program visit the www.mtc.ca.gov.

The street markings around the City are repainted annually. Every year, the City repaints the markings on the streets to keep them visible to drivers. If you notice the Public Works crew working on the streets, please drive with caution.
