Still covered by asphalt but about 2 feet deep very dangerous
The City of Oakland Public Works Agency has received this issue. It is registered as service request # 404497. Thank you, in advance, for your patience as we work through a backlog of pothole service requests. Unfortunately the City does not have enough funding to repave all streets in poor condition. With limited funding, our response to resurfacing requests is limited to minor pavement and pothole repairs only. Our Street Maintenance Department will assess your street and determine whether temporary measures might be appropriate. Please understand that this work may be limited to pothole or other minor repairs, and that we have many similar requests. We will do our best to respond in a timely manner. The backlog of streets in Oakland needing pavement currently is $435 million and growing.
At your convenience, please review the following information regarding the City of Oakland Street/Sidewalk Maintenance Program:

Dear Sir or Madam:
Thank you for your request. The address given in this request, Coolidge Avenue, is incomplete. Could you please provide a complete address or the two nearest cross streets? Your assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated.
The sink hole is in the intersection at Coolidge and School street, slightly past school it is huge!
Sinkhole is on Coolidge, in southbound lane (from 580 underpass) at School St. intersection. If you drive that way you will find it with your car no problem. It's right in the center of the southbound lane, is quite deep for its circumference and if you don't know it's there, is impossible to avoid. It is going to cause someone real damage.
At the very LEAST, please spray paint the thing bright orange so that people know it's there and might be able to slam on brakes before hitting it and really damaging their car.
