Mt. Diablo Scenic Road is the stretch of road between Diablo Road / Blackhawk Road and the South Gate Entrance to Mt. Diablo State Park. Anyone who has driven this stretch of pockmarked and potholed crumbling former asphalt would telll you: Camino Tassahara is in near PERFECT condition by comparison! Drivers? Cyclists? Fans of Mt. Diablo? What do you think?

The State is responsible for street maintenance on Mt Diablo Scenic.Call Arnold.

What ever happened to the planned project of resurfacing 680? I'm tired of having to dodge every pothole. Let's put the money into something that will benefit everyone in the area. I agree that Camino Tassahara is in near PERFECT condition by comparison!

Actually, the state isn't responsible for the bad stretch of Mt. Diablo Scenic. It's a private road, and the residents are responsible. I've tried fruitlessly (so far) to find what the definition of "responsibility" is there. Apparently, the road is so old that there isn't a road maintenance agreement in place with the county, which is required for more recent private roads.

It is a continuing frustration. And a new wall just built on the uphill turn only makes matters worse by reducing the already tricky visibility.
