According to recent pavement quality rankings published by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), Larkspur and Napa’s St. Helena have the worst pavement quality in the Bay Area. City officials claim the low-quality roads are due to a lack of funds. However, Marin County Supervisor Steve Kinsey points out that, unlike nearby Novato and San Rafael, in recent years Larkspur has not passed any bond funding for road repairs.
The transportation commission gave Larkspur and St. Helena a score of 44 out of 100. The scores were based upon routine roadway inspections. Brentwood in Contra Costa county had the best score with a rating of 86 out of 100. The mayor of Larkspur, Len Rifkind, has pledged that the city will consider a revenue measure for the next ballot to address roadway and infrastructure repair.
