What SHOULD be the bike lane on Telegraph Avenue is a rutted mess of cracked and potholed pavement, PARTICULARLY in the southbound side and especially in the dark, accident plagued intersection of Hiway 24 and Telegraph, in North Oakland. The bridge of the freeway and BART tracks there creates permanent darkness, the lights under the freeway there are woefully inadequate, too. Continuing southbound beyond that heinous intersection, bicyclists find even more ruts, deeply cracked pavement, and chuckholes IN Telegraph ave along again what SHOULD be the southbound bike lane, especially alongside the huge "Keller Plaza" housing project. I am aware and delighted that SOME of the bike lane striping is going in, finally, on Oakland's Telegraph Ave now, though the city seems to be skipping the sign posts noting the bike lane/route on Telegraph. Those signs are quite important, in reminding jackass drivers who blast horns at bicyclists and scream at us to "get on the sidewalk," that there ARE bicyclists with a right to share use of the street. I have witnessed, in passing, MANY serious accidents on Telegraph under Hiway 24 there, once even on my way to a Temescal Street Fair - two years ago. I complained of this mess to Jane Brunner and though it seems the city then frugally tossed a bit of asphalt patch out in the chuckholes CARS encounter, they skipped much of what's hazardous to bicycles to the far right. .- Submitted by James Doherty (jimisfun|@gmail.com) July 13, 2009.

I was injured in an accident on this spot on April 5 of this year. I only made it back to the site for the first time today (7/4). My memory of the event isn't good enough for me to say conclusively that the condition of the pavement was responsible for my fall, but I can say two things with certainty: 1) This is a dangerous turn, regardless of the condition of the pavement. 2) There is a patch of pavement on the south/west bound side which is in terrible condition, making the turn that much more dangerous. I took a couple of photos this morning, and I've attached them. However, I think that the hazard is worse than it looks in the pictures--some of the worst parts are obscured by the shade.
