    FWIW, the moratorium is just a list of streets that have been paved in the last five years; anyone who digs them up (utilities, etc.) must restore them to the repaved condition during the five years the moratorium is in effect. The dates listed don’t indicate when the roads are scheduled to be repaved–they’re just the dates when the moratorium expires for each stretch. So four streets have the moratorium expiring in 2014, and 58 have it expiring in 2017. Many more than four streets will be repaved this year. The paving plan for 2017 has not been approved yet, so who knows how many streets will be repaved then–but given that Oakland is generally on an 85-year repaving cycle, it will almost certainly not include any of the newly paved streets in the current moratorium. Public Works posts the adopted paving plan on its website if you want to know which streets are scheduled to be repaved and when.
