Long, deep grooves on San Pablo Ave. beneath the MacArthur Freeway

pothole or pavement cracks


San Pablo Ave.


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.


Opposition to Niles Canyon Project

Caltrans faces opposition to Niles Canyon Road work

by Matthew Artz-Oakland Tribune

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

The transit agency has proposed widening and adding both medians and shoulders to the meandering two-lane state highway as well as building nearly two miles of cement retaining walls.

No pedestrian walkway

bike ways (paths, lanes, routes) not clearly marked


tunnel rd. and hiller drive
94618 oakland


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.
