Pothole cities?

The Metropolitan Transportation Commission today released a report ranking pavement conditions of local roads in the Bay Area. The average three-year pavement condition index (PCI) score for 2005-07 was 65 out of a possible 100 points.

Here’s how the various cities stacked up:

* Union City: score of 75

* Newark: 71

* Fremont: 68

Union City and Newark fell in the “good” range (70-79) while Fremont was in the “fair” range (60-69).

Newark was among the cities that saw its score plummet 4 points from last year. Only one other city, St. Helena, saw a greater decrease (-5).
