Description

The railroad tracks along Tilden Avenue connecting to the out-of-service Fruitvale rail bridge where they cross Blanding Avenue look like they were installed in the Roosevelt administration, and haven't been touched since the railroad went out of service. The problem is potholes cause by the wooden planks between the rails being worked loose. It is a major traffic obstacle.

This has become a much busier intersection with the nearby shopping center, not to mention those taking a shortcut from High Street to Park Street. In peak hours, it is not uncommon to see block-long backups on Blanding (which back up further into the Nob Hill parking lot) which wouldn't be so bad if drivers didn't have to slow to 5 mph to enter the intersection to avoid damaging their cars!
