Railroad track patch worn off

railroad tracks at oblique angle

description

A railroad track crosses Eastbound Clement St. at the corner of Minturn St. in Alameda. A section of this track had been paved over to allow safer crossing. This pavement has mostly worn off exposing the metal tracks. A cyclist has to an extreme swerve to the left followed by a swerve to the right to cross the tracks at close to a 90 degree angle. The exposed track is difficult to see at night and especially dangerous when wet. The entire eastbound lane of Clement should be paved over where it crosses this track or better yet remove the track.

I-880 29th Ave & 23rd Ave Overcrossing

January 21, 2010 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Caltrans and local agencies are proposing to replace Oakland's 29th Ave I-880 overcrossing and two 23rd Ave overcrossings. For several years EBBC has been actively promoting the project to include bicycle access on these two routes. We have no problem with those plans. EBBC members will be impacted, however, by construction activity on 29th Ave that proposes to close a popular bicycle path connection on East 7th St that passes under 29th Ave. This route is used by residents of Oakland and Alameda.

debris in shoulder

The BikeAlameda discussion list has several emails regarding this problem today, 10/27/09. Others report the glass between Grand Street and Eighth Street. I only rode on Santa Clara between Ninth and Eighth Streets (across from Washington School), but glass littered the bike lane for that entire long block. I have reported this hazard City of Alameda Public Works' Maintenence Department (510-747-7900) this afternoon, along with reporting the email discussions of glass between Grand and Eighth.
