A study on the condition of Bay Area streets and roads has a mixed review about the regions 42,000 miles of roadway.

A report by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission is giving a "fair" grade to the region's roads.

The study released Monday says pavement conditions between 2005 and 2007 were largely stable, with a slight improvement in a rating system the commission uses to rate roads in the region.

Still, the commission says large stretches of asphalt will require repair work soon.

The report says the best roads in the region are in the Contra Costa County city of Brentwood and the Santa Clara County city of Los Altos.

The roads in the worst condition are in unincorporated Sonoma County.
