Several neighbors have fallen on their bikes on this street, as it still contains embedded tracks parallel to the direction of traffic, and questionably in the middle of the road. There are zero traffic markings, so it becomes double dangerous, as cyclists (or motorists!) must guess the intention of oncoming traffic, as to where they believe the left- and right-hand lanes should be. This road needs decades-since-active rails removed, a resurfacing, and better traffic markings. As this neighborhood grows, Wood Street has great potential to be bike boulevard, connecting Oakland residences to Emeryville (and Oakland) businesses.
Bay And 7th St Oakland Ca
The crosswalks for the Bay Trail segment north of 7th St in West Oakland have worn away both at Bay St (pictured) as well as at the intersection with I880 Frontage Rd to the east. Since these are both Bay Trail crossings where drivers should expect both pedestrians and bicyclists there should be additional warning signage for traffic coming on and off Frontage Rd, and ideally some sort of special treatment for the crosswalk to make it stand out.

There are several issues with the bike lane striping on Shellmound St past the Emeryville Ikea and Bay St mall including:
1) Before the Ikea entrance, just past the 40th St bridge, the northbound bike lane is a solid line all the way to the intersection, when it should instead be dashed for at least 50 feet in advance. This same issue occurs in several other locations along Shellmound St, such as next to the right turn into the Marriott parking lot.
2) Before the Ikea parking lot exit further north up Shellmound the stop line at the traffic signal does not extend across the bike lane. This same issue occurs at many of the signalized intersections in the southbound direction.
3) After the Ikea parking lot exit intersection the bike lane does not include a bike stencil, then again no bike stencil is painted after the Bay St Mall parking garage entrance/exit, after the intersection with Bay St, or after the intersection with Ohlone Way. There are lots of other areas along this stretch all the way up to Christie Ave where bike stencils should be painted, ideally after every intersection and garage exit.
4) In some cases on both northbound and southbound Shellmound St bike lane stencils should be painted mid-block, and not just at intersections. The standard minimum is once every 500 feet, which some of the blocks along Shellmound St exceed.
