    Some of the bumpiest roads in the Bay area are getting a makeover.

    The city of San Jose announced that it will repave and repair its entire 1,400 mile local and residential streets over the next nine years.

    Mayor Sam Liccardo and Transportation Director John Ristow announced San Jose’s 2019 Pavement Maintenance Program during a news conference Monday afternoon. The Pavement Maintenance Program will pave and maintain almost 300 miles of streets in 2019, the city’s biggest year on record.

    A report last year by a national transportation research group called TRIP ranked San Jose second nationwide for having the worst roads, with 64% of them in poor condition. Another report last year stated that 400 miles of San Jose streets were in desperate need of repair.
