  • 55th Street And Dover Intersection Oakland, California - Bushrod

    A crosswalk has been needed for years at the intersection of 55th Street and Dover, between MLK and Shattuck Avenue. Cars drive at advanced speeds and pass other cars since the street is quite wide (even with the addition of the bike lanes neighbors suggested). Due to its location between several freeway on and off ramps, along with the street's width, drivers treat this stretch of road as a freeway extension. At the residential intersection of 55th and Dover, residents and neighborhood visitors and Children's Hospital Oakland employees (often children and seniors) routinely cross to reach the hospital, the popular Dover Street Park (@Dover/59th), the North Senior Oakland Senior Center, CHORI, and the bus stops (two well-used AC Transit lines run down 55th Street) on either side of the street. Although not a formal bike route, Dover Street is also heavily utilized by bicyclists. Crossing for pedestrians and bikers is often an impossible task due to the lack of signage and a steady stream of speeding cars (some passing other cars in the oncoming lane at even higher speeds). It is particularly difficult to cross during the winter, when residents coming home from work must disembark from buses and try to cross the street after dark (and sometimes in the rain). Pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers would benefit greatly from a large reflective thermoplast crosswalk and reflective signage at 55th/Dover to alert drivers to the presence of pedestrians (particularly children and seniors) for whom they should slow down.

  • 2219-2399 Wood Street Oakland, California - Clawson

    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.

  • Driver Plaza Oakland, California - Santa Fe

    Driver Plaza needs help from every city agency. It is frequently the site of all-day drinking fests, the trees are dying from the daily, constant urination by the drunks who party there, and the tree planters are giant garbage cans where the drunks throw their cigarette butts, liquor bottles, needles, cans, and other nasty garbage. The bus stop glass is frequently shattered by drunk, angry people. Families try to walk their dogs and children through the gross mess and cyclists try to navigate this bike corridor without getting flats from all the broken glass.

  • 59th St And Mlk Oakland, California - Bushrod

    Recently the stoplight at MLK on 59th does not stay green long enough to cross the street on a bike. Many families commute on bikes here at busy times, and it is not safe. Please make the green going east/west on 59th at MLK longer.

  • 2501-2549 West Street Oakland, California - Hoover-Foster

    West Street between 25th Street and Sycamore St has bike lanes on it, only the line marking the lane is gone. On much of West street new paint was applied this summer (thank you!) to refresh the thermoplastic but this block was missed. There is an existing "bike lane" stencil in the north bound direction, but the stripe marking the lane is no longer visible on either side of the street.

  • 2101 Webster St. Oakland, California - Downtown

    Please stop the valet service at 2101 Webster Street from routinely double parking in and blocking the dedicated bike lanes as part of its normal operations. This is not a once-in-a-while thing, but every day. Please send parking enforcement to ticket these vehicles and encourage the valet service to move operations to a more suitable location.

  • 2607 Mandela Parkway Oakland, CA - Clawson

    The abandoned train tracks crossing Mandela are quite unevan, and the blacktop around it has buckled up and down causing a severe hazard to cyclists. The problem is at it's worst in the bicycle lane, so to safely cross the tracks you have to go to the far left lane, or make a sharp curve onto 26th street to loop around the tracks.

  • 4114 Linden Street Oakland, California - Longfellow

    there is currently no sign indicating the driver is approaching a school on Linden Street between 40th and 42nd. There is a public k-8 school at the intersection of Linden and 42nd. There is also no sign indicating drivers are approaching a public park with play structures for both toddlers and children 5-12 years old. In addition, there is a basketball court on Linden between 43rd and 44th, which attracts kids on foot and bike.

  • 18th And Campbell Oakland, CA 94607, USA - Prescott Oakland Point

    18th Street from Wood to Mandela Parkway has railroad tracks running the length and it appears they are no longer used. They are in terrible shape with damaged asphalt, dozens of what I'd refer to as potholes, exposed support wood, grass growing in the cracks, and exposed rail hardware leaving the road dangerous for bicyclists, kids, the elderly, cars, etc. NEEDS TO BE REPAIRED or REMOVED.
