Traffic Signal Issue

Assigned to:Unassigned
Created:Visitor (not verified) at April 22, 2015 - 6:35pm
Status: ( / Priority )
Case ID:: -13751

type

traffic signal not triggered by bicycle

direction

southbound

description

Traffic signal ON Isabel Ave (Livermore,Hwy 84), where Stanley Blvd transitions to Isabel. When I am coming from Stanley, and need to make a left turn to go southbound on Isabel,the light will not trigger for a bike. And if one car triggers the light, it turns red before I get through the intersection, (slight uphill and afternoon headwinds). I have contacted Caltrans (I was told that they are the controlling authority) several times, but no action or response. UPDATE 4-24-15: Submitted to CalTrans (including their non-response to you) and asked for immediate remedy. Received Service Request #593788.

Bikelane in the WB direction of Decoto Road where it passes over Alameda Creek has its bikelane just vanish into a pinch point without any warning sign for cyclists or motorists. EB direction has full bikelane across the bridge. It would be nice to have a sign indicating bikes present on roadway. https://www.google.com/maps/@37.5783233,-122.0256638,91m/data=!3m1!1e3 UPDATE 2-12-14: Good observation & suggestion for mitigating the poor design. Submitted to Frans Vandermeer & Cindy Sheridan in the Fremont PW Dep't, asking for appropriate signage (if a bike lane cannot be accommodated). UPDATE 2-13-14: Rene Dalton of Fremont PW responded to say it's Union City's territory. She'll let me know who (in U.C.) will lead the charge.

Specialized Dolce

location

3271 16th Street San Francisco, CA 94103 (right outside Laughing Lotus Yoga)

description

51" white and blue Specialized Dolce road bike. Front of frame is white and back is blue. Mostly aluminum body, but carbon forks that are blue at the tips. Some floral patterns at white/blue borders. Some parts are rusted. Tiagra derailleur and Sora shifters. Two ways to brake (drop bar and handle bar). Has mounts for front and back lights, as well as a Cateye bike computer. Cateye speed and cadence sensors were attached on the rear of the bike (though these probably were removed). Pedals are silver and somewhat beaten up (these don't match the pedals in the picture since I got rid of the cages). Also has front and rear reflectors. There is a dead small spider stuck in the left shifter. I don't know the serial number unfortunately. Bike was stolen outside Laughing Lotus Yoga Center at 3172 16th St. San Francisco 94103 between 1-5 pm on Feb 1, 2015. Ulock and cable were both cut and left on the ground.

There's a newly painted green lane marked for bikes on 40th Street. It seems to be also marked as a car lane. It is unclear if it is a bike lane or a car lane, or to be used for both. I've seen bikes taking up the whole lane, but usually cars take up the whole lane. If it is meant only for bikes, it should say "Bikes Only" and the car lane should have the middle painted line removed. This confusion could get somebody (ie: cyclist) killed. UPDATE 10-14-13: Submitting to Oakland PW; this lane color infill is on a trial basis and your comments are useful. UPDATE 10-16-13: Take a look at the EBBC page: https://www.ebbc.org/supersharrows - plus provide feedback on the survey we're conducting, with WOBO: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/5S855PF. And Jason Patton (Bicycle & Pedestrian Program Manager) weighs in: Plenty of information on 40th St is available here: http://www2.oaklandnet.com/Government/o/PWA/o/EC/s/BicycleandPedestrianProgram/OAK024586#macbart In particular, here’s a two-page overview flyer (that is linked from the above page): http://www2.oaklandnet.com/Government/o/PWA/s/BicycleandPedestrianProgram/OAK043296 Comments can be sent to bikeped@oaklandnet.com. We are also monitoring the EBBC survey on the project.
