  • Sidewalk Acknowledged
    100-122 Grand Ave Oakland, CA 94612, USA - Waverly

    Sidewalk closed along the entire NW corner of Webster and Grand without and ADA accommodation or signage at the next closest corners warning of the closure. Looks like it might have to do with window washing, so please notify the company responsible that this sidewalk closure is illegal and inappropriate.

  • 601 55th St Oakland, CA 94609, USA - Bushrod

    Please adjust the traffic signal for 55th Street crossing Shattuck Ave so that when a pedestrian pushes the walk button on one corner the walk signal light comes on for both the north and south legs of the intersection (currently only the leg where the button was pushed gets a walk light). Also, please change the signal so that traffic a green light always comes on for both east and westbound traffic even if traffic is only detected in one direction. Currently, if someone arrives late to the intersection they first see a red light which turns green as they approach. This can cause confusion over who has the right of way. Also, this intersection desperately needs "hot" walk signals for 55th crossing Shattuck, so that pedestrians who push the button partway through a green phase can still get a walk light. North and south bound Shattuck also need either a left turn pocket (by removing car parking at the intersection) or separate out the north and southbound traffic into different phases so that left turners onto 55th don't back up traffic.

  • 2000-2020 Webster St Oakland, CA 94612, USA - Downtown

    Andes Construction is doing some work on 20th Street between Webster and Harrison, and has both travel lanes on southbound Webster Street before 20th coned off, forcing all of the car traffic to merge quickly into the bike lane. There is no signage warning drivers to yield to bikes, or signage warning bicyclists to expect drivers merging into the bike lane. Please follow up with Andes to ensure their traffic management for this and all other Oakland projects they work on is safe and appropriate.

  • 770-798 55th St Oakland, CA 94609, USA - Bushrod

    The traffic signal for westbound 55th at MLK failed to detect myself and another person on bicycles this past Saturday, September 19th, at approximately 9:55pm. We were both waiting behind the crosswalk and in the middle of the lane, and both with bright lights on the front of our bikes, but were still skipped by the traffic signal video detection for an entire phase, and didn't get a green light until a driver pulled up behind us. Please fix this, and ensure that it stays fixed, as this same issue has been reported and addressed several times before.

  • 661 Washington Street Oakland, California - Old City-Produce And Waterfront

    Cars are regularly parked at the red curb both at the NW corner of southbound Washington before 6th Street, as well as northbound Washington before 7th Street. This blocks the view between drivers in the street and pedestrians about to enter the crosswalk, making right turns on red potentially dangerous, and in the northbound direction this makes the dedicated right turn lane basically unusable.

    These very well may be police vehicles parked at the red curbs, but even if they are there on official business the parking is prohibited there in order to enhance pedestrian safety so there should be no vehicles there regardless of the reason.

    It could be that turning the red curbs into sidewalk bulb-outs is the only way to prevent people from parking there and assuring good sight lines between the sidewalk and the street.

  • 317-331 Washington Street Oakland, California - Old City-Produce And Waterfront

    Crew from The Plumbing Ministry (www.plumbingministry.com) has the entire southbound side of Washington Street before 3rd Street (parking/bike lane/travel lane) closed off, forcing traffic into the oncoming lane, but they have no flag people in each direction managing the traffic to ensure that there are no collisions. Please follow up on this individual issue, as well as with this company to ensure that they follow proper safety protocol for all future projects.

  • 2-4 10th Street Oakland, CA 94607, USA - Civic Center

    The pedestrian path along the Lake Merritt channel leading from the lake to Laney College is closed before 10th Street due to bridge construction, but no pedestrian detour info is provided. Please place signs along the path from the path at 12th St down to the closure so that people don't have to walk all the way down there before they realize they can't get through.

  • 2966-2998 Broadway Oakland, California - Oakland Ave-Harrison St

    After the new CVS location on the SE corner of Broadway and 30th was completed the car parking tees were repainted but the crosswalks across Broadway and 30th where the new paving went in were not replaced. Please make sure the project developer goes back and replaces all of the lane lines to bring everything back to the previously existing conditions.

    640 West Macarthur Boulevard Oakland, California - Longfellow

    Deeply sunken pavement on westbound W MacArthur Blvd just before MLK, right in the location where bicyclists often ride.

    This was reported previously via SeeClickFix (http://seeclickfix.com/issues/1714610) and marked as addressed by the city, but no action has yet been taken. The original report has been archived and I am now unable to reopen it, so I am creating another report instead.

  • 785 55th Street Oakland, CA 94609, USA - North Oakland

    Please upgrade the pedestrian traffic signals at 55th/MLK to either provide a walk light recall on every phase in each direction, especially during the daytime, or at least change the ped buttons to provide a "hot" walk signal even when pushed partway through the green phase. This should be fairly easy to do for MLK crossing 55th in both directions, and would probably only add a little bit of delay if added for 55th crossing MLK in both directions.

  • 1516 1st Avenue Oakland, CA 94606, USA - Merritt

    Truck parked blocking the bike lane (right next to "no parking" sign), in the middle of the intersection where eastbound 1st Ave turns into Lakeshore Ave. This same truck was here yesterday, I warned the driver but it is here again today. It's already a dangerous location for bicyclists even with a clear bike lane. Please ticket and/or tow.

  • 2151-2189 Milvia Street Berkeley, CA 94704, USA - Berkeley

    Today (Sunday) the pedestrian signal for Center Street crossing Milvia Street was only providing a walk light after the pedestrian push button was pressed, and if the button was not pressed the walk signal was not provided during the green phase for Center Street. There is enough pedestrian activity here that I feel the pedestrian walk signal should be on permanent recall every day of the week, so that the walk signal is provided without needing to push the button.

  • 430-498 Broadway Oakland, CA 94607, USA - Old City-Produce And Waterfront

    The lane lines were re-striped on Broadway around the freeway underpass from 5th to 6th Streets today (thanks) but an error was made in the rightmost northbound lane before 5th Street, which is supposed to lead soft-right into the Alameda tube or sharp-right onto 5th Street, but was instead striped as a right/straight through lane. This means that there are now 3 straight through lanes on northbound Broadway before 5th, but only 2 after 5th. Please fix this IMMEDIATELY, before it leads to crashes and injuries!

    Three beer delivery trucks in a row, all parked in the bike lane and blocking the bus stop on northbound Broadway north of 30th Street. How does anyone think this is acceptable?
