  • Sunshine Drive And Meadow Lane Concord, California - Concord

    The traffic signal for SW-bound traffic on Sunshine Drive at Meadow Lane does not appear to detect bicycles. I sat through several signal phases while on by bike today, right on top of the loop detector, and never got a green until a car finally pulled up behind me. Since both Sunshine Drive and Meadow Lane are bikeways it is very important that the signal detect bikes, so please have the loop detector recalibrated. Thanks!

  • 629 55th Street Oakland, CA 94608, USA - Bushrod

    This truck, license plate #7M25274, has been double parked blocking the bike lane on E bound 55th west of Shattuck for over two days. Beyond that, this truck is regularly parked at this location for shorter spans of time. Please ticket/tow this vehicle, and do regular enforcement along 55th St to ensure that the bike lanes remain clear and safe to use.

  • Lake Merritt Boulevard Oakland, California - Civic Center

    A bicycle stencil should have been painted in the bike lane on east-bound Lake Merritt Blvd after the intersection with the Kaiser Center entrance, when the street was striped originally. Please have this error corrected and paint the bike stencil.

  • Grizzly Peak Blvd And Centennial Dr Oakland, CA - Panoramic Hill

    The stop line for west-bound Grizzly Peak Blvd was never repainted for the stop sign at Centennial Dr when the road was repaved in 2013. Please send the contractor back to paint the stop line and finish this job, thanks!

    3050 Broadway Oakland Ca - Oakland Ave-Harrison St

    This curb cut should be painted red, as it no longer leads to a driveway (used to be 3050 Broadway). Now cars are parked here instead, blocking the view of the crosswalk and causing a safety issue for pedestrians. Please paint this curb cut red and then ticket anyone who continues to park here.

  • Shattuck Ave And 55th St Oakland, CA - Bushrod

    Drivers heading both north and south on Shattuck Ave around 55th Street regularly merge into the bike lane to pass cars ahead of them that are waiting for a break in traffic to make a left turn onto a side street. This is not only illegal, but also very dangerous for bicyclists as they may have a driver merge unexpectedly into their lane with little or no warning, often at a non-intersection location.

    Solutions for this issue might include 1) adding left turn arrows for both sides of Shattuck Ave at 55th, then changing the signal phasing so that north and south bound traffic here have their own phases, 2) prohibiting left turns at this and/or other intersections along Shattuck, or 3) sending out law enforcement to write tickets to any drivers who merge into the bike lane to pass other cars

  • 4400 Shellmound Street Emeryville, California - Emeryville

    The traffic signal at the IKEA exit in Emeryville (directly across from the Bay Bridge trail entrance) does not pick up bicycles. I have waited on several different occasions with my bike right on top of the sensor behind the crosswalk at this intersection and never get a green light to make a left turn onto Shellmound Street until a car pulls up behind me. Please fix this.

  • 5700-5740 Horton Street Emeryville, CA 94608, USA - Emeryville

    The pavement in the bike lane on N bound Horton St from Haruff to just past the Powell St underpass was torn up by some recent utility work then replaced rather poorly. If this work is not yet finished please make sure the pavement is smoothed and the bike lanes and stencils are replaced before the work is closed out. If the job is already finished please send the utility crews back to repave and repaint.

  • 5858 Horton Street Emeryville, CA 94608, USA - Emeryville

    This dumpster on N bound Horton St in Emeryville is regularly placed squarely in the bike lane, forcing cyclists to merge into traffic as soon as they emerge from the dark Powell St underpass back into the sunlight. Please inform the property owner that blocking the bike lane is neither legal nor safe.

    900-948 3rd Street Oakland, CA 94607, USA - Acorn-Acorn Industrial

    It looks like there was some sewer or other utility work done on northbound 3rd St at Myrtle in Oakland, but the pavement patch put in afterward is very uneven and the bicycle lane lines were never replaced. Since this is a highly used bike route shared with truck traffic it could potentially cause a crash that would end very badly for the cyclist. Please send the utility crew who was responsible for this back to smooth the pavement and repaint the bike lane lines (very thick paint needed due to truck traffic).

  • E 12th St And Lake Merritt Blvd Oakland, CA - Merritt

    The bicycle lane stencil for SE-bound E 12th Street just past Lake Merritt Blvd appears to never have been painted. A bicycle lane stencil is supposed to be used in a bike lane after every intersection.

    The stencil for the bike lane in the opposing direction of E 12th Street was painted correctly.

  • 911 55th Street Oakland, CA 94608, USA - Santa Fe

    Traffic signal for E bound 55th St at Market St not picking up bicycles again, even in broad daylight. I sat here with my bike, behind the crosswalk line and just to the left of the bike lane, and the traffic going W on 55th St was given a green light but I going E was not. This signal has been problematic ever since the L turn light for Market St was installed. Please fix so that it works for bikes in all directions, 100% of the time.

  • 1101-1103 53rd Street Oakland, CA 94608, USA - Gaskill

    Traffic signal for eastbound 53rd at San Pablo Ave not picking up bicycles. This signal has been reported so many times before, is listed as fixed by Caltrans, and then stops picking up bikes again. 53rd is one of the only E-W bikeways between Emeryville and Oakland, so it is imperative that this signal work for them 100% of the time.

  • Ohlone Greenway And Knott Ave El Cerrito Ca - El Cerrito

    The Ohlone Greenway trail just north of Knott Ave in El Cerrito has an empty bollard post hole which extends a bit out of the pavement, creating a sharp edge which may cause a bicyclist to crash or get a flat tire. Other empty bollard post holes on the trail have a concrete or asphalt lip around them to eradicate any sharp edges, and the same thing should be done for all the post holes at this location, as well as just north of here where the trail winds through the apartment complex parking lot.

  • Mlk And 55th St Oakland, CA - Santa Fe

    The traffic signal for eastbound 55th Street at MLK is not detecting bicycles. I and one other person waited with our bikes on the line between the bike lane and the travel lane, behind the crosswalk, and the signal went through an entire phase without giving us the green light.

    Considering how much bike and car traffic there is on 55th Street, it seems like this location would be a good one to have the light on a timer so that 55th always gets a green, and to abandon the actuated signal which never seems to work 100% for bikes.

  • 5889-5899 Hollis Street Emeryville, CA 94608, USA - Emeryville

    The signal for W bound traffic on 59th St at Hollis is not picking up bicycles. I waited for over 3 minutes on my bike in the middle of the lane behind the crosswalk and the green light only came on after a car pulled up behind me. Please address this issue ASAP, as 59th St is a bicycle boulevard.

    5301-5367 Shattuck Avenue Oakland, CA 94609, USA - Shafter

    New bike lanes went in today on Shattuck today after some pavement patches were installed recently, but it looks like the contractor went ahead with the painting without taking care of this pavement patch number 28, on S bound Shattuck before 53rd St. There are some VERY serious potholes here likely to cause a bicyclist to crash, so please have the contractor come back to patch and repaint this section ASAP! At the same time it might be worthwhile to send someone out to check if they missed any other pavement work as well.
