pothole or pavement cracks
bike ways (paths, lanes, routes) not clearly marked


We have lived in Temescal for nearly 10 years. In all this time this major thoroughfare at Telegraph has not been repaved once, and now it is in such bad shape it is dangerous~! The potholes are so bad that bikes and cars are at risk by having to maneuver around these holes. Besides safety, there's the issue of how these unsafe poorly maintained roads actually DIScourage biking altogether. The city of Oakland should Not be preventing its citizens from being environmentally conscious if they want to bike rather than drive everywhere! How many complaints have you received on this issue? Many people don't have the time to write letters like this one, or don't know the proper place to file a complaint. This is both a safely issue and a political issue of our tax payers' dollars not being spent for something so obvious a need. This problem could have been solved if they repaved the entire corridor of Telegraph just six months ago. WHY did they stop resurfacing this road six months ago at 45th Street !??? The most traveled area is not 35th to 45th...it is 50th to 60th which are where the entrances and exits to Highway 24 are located. This knowledge is seemingly a "no brainer". I have sent emails to the state congressman and to Barbara Lee and none of them were answered. I am thinking if I send one to Ron Dellums it will also be unanswered. We are tired of having our voices be unheard. This is exactly the type of situation that causes the citizenry to be distrustful and annoyed at government. In the meantime, we are left will crappy unsafe roads to have to navigate every day~! Do I sound angry? Well I passed anger years ago - the Telegraph corridor has been a mess for years~!

debris in shoulder




Lots of debris kicked out of trench in right lane, virtually covering the entire bike lane. Dangerous to ride on, especially in the rain. Been there all week. Cyclists may feel forced to ride in the auto traffic lane, which not only has high speed autos but the trench which is very uneven and could cause a cyclist to lose balance.
