  • 1698 Alice Street Oakland, CA 94612, USA - Lakeside

    17th Street was repaved and is about to have the striping replaced. Where 17th crosses Alice Street there are uncontrolled crosswalks on both sides, but it looks like the striping will only include parallel crosswalk lines as opposed to the city-standard ladder crosswalks for uncontrolled locations like this. Please adjust the plans before the lane lines are repainted, thanks!

  • Pothole Acknowledged
    847 56th Street Oakland, CA 94608, USA - Santa Fe

    Recessed/crumbling pavement in and around the middle of the intersection at Genoa/56th causing a danger to bicyclists. Especially the recessed pavement around the utility cap.

  • Park Maintenance Acknowledged
    800-848 Stanford Avenue Oakland, CA 94608, USA - Santa Fe

    Plantings in Stanford Ave median next to bike/ped path are overgrown again, blocking the view between path users and oncoming car traffic. Again, this is extremely hazardous, so these bushes should not just be trimmed back but removed entirely. This is the 4th time I've made this request, and every time the bushes are trimmed and then grow back within a month or two.

    2009 California Street Berkeley, CA 94703, USA - Berkeley

    Bike rack on SE corner of California and University in front of Out of The Closet was taken out during some recent utility work and never replaced. This rack was used a lot, so please replace it ASAP and consider adding another as well.

  • 301-331 Jackson Street Oakland, California - Produce And Waterfront

    Jackson Street was recently repaved, but the yellow center lines were never repainted from the south side of 3rd/Jackson all the way up to the south side of 5th/Jackson. Please send the contractor back out to this location to complete the striping along Jackson Street at 3rd, 4th, and 5th Streets.

    521 16th Street Oakland, California - Downtown

    The temporary asphalt curb ramp on the south side of the street at 521 16th Street has deteriorated considerably and needs to be converted into a real, ADA-compliant curb ramp. If this mid-block crosswalk could be upgraded to a ladder crosswalk at the same time, that would be an added bonus.

  • 612 17th Street Oakland, California - San Pablo Gateway

    Bike lanes were recently added to eastbound 17th Street, but bicycle traffic signal detector stencils were never added before the intersections, including here at eastbound 17th before Jefferson Street. Please fix!

  • 100 Webster Street Oakland, California - Old City-Produce And Waterfront

    The yellow center line striping on Webster Street between Embarcadero West and 5th Street has faded completely, so that people often drive into oncoming traffic, not knowing where one lane ends and the other begins. It is especially unclear since on side of the street has diagonal parking, so the center line is not actually in the middle of the street.

    Please re-stripe the yellow center lines on this segment, especially the double yellows at the intersections.

  • Tree Issue Acknowledged
    San Francisco Bay Trail Berkeley, California - Berkeley

    Overgrown trees/shrubs blocking an entire half of the Bay Trail southbound in Berkeley south of Gilman Street. In fact, the entire Berkeley portion of the Bay Trail has significant maintenance issues, both with vegetation, sand, and soil encroaching on the pathway, with the condition of the pavement, as well as with sight lines at intersections such as University Ave.

    Meanwhile, the trees along Frontage Road are neatly trimmed and not interfering with car traffic. This is a huge double standard, and one that the City of Berkeley and the Bay Trail needs to put some serious time and investment into.

  • 4077 Emery Street Emeryville, California - Emeryville

    The bicycle shared-lane (sharrow) markings on Emery Street between Park Ave and Emery Street in each direction are spaced too far apart. From the sharrow at the start of the block to the one at the end is about 340 feet, but the federal and state MUTCD recommend spacing of no more than 250 feet between sharrows. The Oakland standard for sharrow spacing is even tighter, with the first one striped 20 feet from the intersection, and then after that at intervals of 150 to 200 feet: http://www2.oaklandnet.com/oakca/groups/pwa/documents/report/oak025115.pdf

    As such, at least one additional sharrow marking should be striped toward the center of this block in each direction, using either standard.

  • 20-24 7th Street Oakland, CA, USA - Peralta-Laney

    Please add a temporary asphalt ramp leading from NW-bound 7th Street toward the Lake Merritt Channel path along Laney College. With the Embarcadero bridge closure and detour leading bicyclists to 7th Street, an easy connection to the Channel Path will give bike riders more connections beyond the official detour toward Fallon Street. The south side of 7th Street already has a curb ramp at the Channel Path, but the north side does not. There is already a red curb where the temporary asphalt ramp could go, so no parking spots would be lost.

  • Other: Trees Acknowledged
    707-743 Mandela Parkway Oakland, CA 94607, USA - Prescott Oakland Point

    Shrubs on NW corner of Mandela Pkwy/7th St are overgrown, encroaching into roadway and blocking the view between pedestrians in the crosswalk and approaching drivers. Please trim, or better yet remove these shrubs that are inappropriate for this location where sight lines are important for safety.

  • 598 55th Street Oakland, CA 94609, USA - Bushrod

    The traffic signal for westbound 55th at Shattuck Ave just now failed to pick me up while I waited behind the stop line in the middle of the lane on my bicycle. It actually gave traffic across the intersection a green light but my side stayed red for some reason. Very confusing, irritating, and dangerous. Please fix!
