pothole or pavement cracks

description

On northbound San Pablo Ave. between 35th St. and 36th St. there exist two very long, deep and wide grooves on the right side of the left lane. This is below the MacArthur Freeway and they aren't very visible due to the fact this area is in the shade. The two grooves are each approximately 1 metre long and both are on the right side of the left lane. They are wide enough and deep enough for a small car tyre to drop into them.

Caltrans faces opposition to Niles Canyon Road work

by Matthew Artz-Oakland Tribune
09/14/2010

FREMONT -- Caltrans is reconsidering planned safety improvements to Niles Canyon Road in the face of increasing opposition.

At the intersection of Tunnel Rd. and Hiller Dr. in the Oakland Hills, there's no pedestrian-marked walkways to cross the intersection, or they're at least limited. This is particularly a problem because AC Transit riders have a stop near here and must cross this intersection to reach the Hiller Highlands homes.

Temporary Transbay Terminal OPEN

August 7, 2010 (All day)

AC Transit will move all of its transbay operations to the Transbay Temporary Terminal on Saturday, August 7, 2010 from the current San Francisco Transbay Terminal. The old facility, which opened in 1939, will be demolished to make way for a new, world-class Transit Center designed to serve commuter buses and trains, as well as high-speed rail. The Transit Center will be completed in approximately seven years.

The Caltrans bike shuttle will stop on Main St @Folsom across from the Temporary Terminal starting August 9.

description

An unsafe condition exists at the intersection of west bound 36th St. and north bound San Pablo Ave. This is a very busy intersection with a high traffic volume on San Pablo Ave. and many vehicles exiting the MacArthur freeway (580) onto 36th St. and turning right on San Pablo Ave. The intersection is controlled by a traffic light but there aren't any restrictions on vehicles on 36th St. turning right on the red light onto San Pablo Ave. There needs to be a NO RIGHT TURN ON RED sign installed at this intersection as most drivers making a right turn from 36th St. to San Pablo Ave. are only looking to the left for a break in traffic to execute their right turns. They are not looking for pedestrians to the right or cyclists who are in the shoulder. They are only looking for motor vehicles coming from the left in the traffic lanes. Prohibiting traffic from turning right on red at this intersection would force drivers to wait until there isn't any legal cross traffic before making their right turns. Such a sign could have prevented the cyclist fatality at this intersection on 3 June 2010.

On 9 March 2010 in Hazard Report 536-6721 I reported a large pothole on the right edge of north bound San Pablo Ave. just north of 36th st. and just north of the Emeryville city limit. It never was repaired and the entire right half of the right lane in that location is very bumpy. On 3 June 2010 a bicyclist a bicyclist was in a fatal collision at that location. The substandard road surface may have contributed to this fatality, either due to the cyclist swerving to avoid the road hazards or falling down in front of a vehicle due to the road hazards. This short section needs to be repaved before someone else is injured or killed.
