    1100–1140 Clay St Oakland 94607, United States - Downtown

    Drivers continue to park in and block the curbside bike lane on southbound Clay St between 11th and 12th Streets, despite the “no parking” signs, covered parking kiosk, and tickets being written.

    Please just install posts or water-filled barriers in the bike lane buffer space, to keep the bike lane clear and avoid having to continuously enforce and ticket drivers.

    519 17th St Oakland 94612, United States - Downtown

    This sidewalk closure on the south side of 17th Street west of Telegraph is not in compliance with ADA or Oakland’s bike/pedestrian construction access guidelines.

    There is no signage ahead of the sidewalk fence about the closure, there is no accessible ramp from the sidewalk to the street to get around the closure, and there is no barrier separating an on-street pedestrian path around the closure from car traffic. Please follow up on this and fix it ASAP.

  • Pothole Acknowledged
    1360 Berkeley Way Berkeley 94702, United States - Berkeley
    This is not an individual pothole report, as the pavement on the entirety of Berkeley Way between Sacramento and Chestnut is broken and failing, especially around the speed humps which are degrading significantly, around street trees causing pavement uplift, and several sewer laterals which were not patched adequately. This is a significant danger to bike riders, as the street lighting here is also low reducing the visibility of these hazards at night. Please repair this entire segment, including the speed humps.
  • 510–522 Grand Ave Oakland 94610, United States - Lake Merritt
    Rightmost travel lane on east bound Grand Ave, just past Euclid. Not in the bike lane, but could easily cause a bike rider to crash if they rode over it.
  • 524–552 Grand Ave Oakland 94610, United States - Lake Merritt
    Rightmost travel lane on NE bound Grand Ave, across the street from 538 Grand. Not in the bike lane, but could easily cause a bike rider to crash if they rode over it.
  • 4700 San Pablo Ave Emeryville 94608, United States - Emeryville
    Big pothole on northbound San Pablo Ave just north of 47th St, in line with where bike riders will be.
  • 5400–5498 Genoa St Oakland 94608, United States - Santa Fe

    Please install a 4-way stop ASAP at Genoa/55th. This is an intersection of two very popular bikeways, including the Genoa Street bike boulevard which is supposed to be family friendly, but the lack of a stop for 55th makes it very difficult to cross at busy times of day.

    Today I watched a bike rider dismount her bike and try to walk across in the marked crosswalk, pushing her bike and a child trailer attached, but car drivers didn’t only fail to yield, but one driver actually honked at her as they sped by, followed by several others.

    This is both unsafe as well as unwelcoming, and these dangers discourage many people from trying to bike in the neighborhood at all.

    A four way stop here has been requested by various community members over many years. Please follow up on this request quickly to avoid continued conflicts and danger.

    5443 Shattuck Ave Oakland 94609, United States - Bushrod

    This morning at 10:50am the traffic signal for eastbound 55th St at Shattuck failed to give me a green light while I waited for the signal on my bike, even when westbound car traffic got a green. I’ve reported this problem many times before, and it never seems to be fixed sustainably.

    Please adjust the signal actuation to ensure that bikes are detected in all directions 100% of the time, and if that isn’t possible then put the signal on a timed recall phase, and turn off the faulty actuation.

    131 Broadway Oakland 94607, United States - Old City-Produce And Waterfront

    The sidewalk on the north side of 2nd St, west of Broadway, has been fenced off and blocked due to a development project on the corner.

    It looks like the construction is stalled and there hasn’t been any activity for many months, so can this fence either be removed, or can an on-street pedestrian walkway be constructed around it? Keeping it blocked when nothing is happening with construction is very pedestrian unfriendly.

  • 1407 Foothill Blvd Oakland 94606, United States - Rancho San Antonio
    Please install a green 2-stage bike turn box at Foothill and 14th Ave ahead of the crosswalk in the location shown here, so bike riders can safely and legally turn from the bikeway on NE-bound 14th Ave onto the bikeway on NW-bound Foothill.
  • 767 55th St Oakland 94609, United States - Bushrod
    Two mattresses dumped on the sidewalk outside 770 55th Street.
  • Sidewalk - Damage Acknowledged
    5425 Martin Luther King Jr Way Oakland 94609, United States - Santa Fe
    The sidewalk on the north side of 55th just west of MLK, outside the gas station, is badly broken. Please make sure this gets fixed, and it would help to add a delineator between the public sidewalk and the gas station space, on the concrete. It is not easy to tell where one ends and the other begins, which results sometimes in drivers blocking the sidewalk.

    4155 Telegraph Ave Oakland 94609, United States - Temescal
    Another missing utility cover on sidewalk along Telegraph just south of 42nd, in front of Church’s Chicken. Please fix.
  • 4000 Telegraph Ave Oakland 94609, United States - Temescal
    Utility covers missing on sidewalk outside 4055 Telegraph. Pedestrian trip/fall hazard.

    5301–5399 Genoa St Oakland 94608, United States - Santa Fe
    Three out of four corners at 54th/Genoa do hot have curb ramps, and the fourth has a non ADA compliant ramp. Please fix this thanks!
  • 39th St Oakland 94609, United States - Mosswood
    The traffic signal for the MacArthur BART northbound frontage road at 40th Street failed to detect me on my bike again last night (Weds November 13) around 7:45pm. I waited about five minutes and never got a green light until a pedestrian showed up and pressed the walk button. Please fix this detection so it works 100%, or just put the signal on 24/7 recall.
  • Webster St Oakland 94609, United States - Pill Hill
    The shoulder on northbound Webster between 34th and 36th Streets was recently re-striped as a bike lane, but drivers are still using it as parking. Please leave courtesy notices on the cars here for the next few weeks to remind them of the change, and if the behavior persists after that then please start issuing tickets to keep the bike lane clear.
  • 1545–1599 20th St Oakland 94607, United States - Prescott Oakland Point
    Sizeable divot on newly paved portion of eastbound 20th St just east of Peralta, in line with where bike riders will be when turning off the Peralta bike lane.

    100–186 Adeline St Oakland 94607, United States - Acorn-Acorn Industrial

    I’ve made this request before and it was denied, but I implore the city to reconsider due to the severe safety concerns.

    The traffic signal at the intersection of Adeline and 3rd is on a 24/7 red flashing mode, which means that it is supposed to work like an all-way stop though drivers roll through more often than not.

    Third street is also an on-street portion of the Bay Trail with buffered bike lanes. As such bike riders and pedestrians going through this intersection have to contend with semi traffic coming to and from the port in all directions, as well as other car traffic.

    This signal needs to be put on a regular green/yellow/red phase as soon as possible, and the walk signals need to be activated. As-is the intersection is extremely dangerous as well as inaccessible to people with disabilities. I know this will slow down port traffic, but the eventual alternative is someone being severely injured or worse.

    Please consider this and take action to improve safety. Thank you.

    312 Clay St Oakland 94607, United States - Old City-Produce And Waterfront

    PG&E recently repaved and re-striped 4th Street as part of a utility project, but the crosswalks at 4th and Clay were not installed with high viz continental striping per Oakland’s current standard. The red curb on the near side of the crosswalks does not appear to be long enough for adequate sight lines either.

    Please follow up with PG&E to ensure that Oakland’s current design standards are being applied here and with all of the other streets and intersections they are currently working on throughout the Jack London Square area.
