There has been tree branches in the bike lane on Highway 13 just as one comes into Berkeley for about a week. The branches are marked but not removed. Someone has started the job but not finished it. The branches have been there for a week. Update 4/17/16: Sent to both the Public Works Department mailbox, and their administrative assistant in Berkeley. Added specific location: between Bridge Road and Vicente Road. Update 4/18/16: Tamlyn (Admin) referred case to forestry, and confirmed it's Berkeley. Tree apparently has been removed by this afternoon.

Intersection sign needed on bike boulevard

Along the entire length of the Milvia bike boulevard, wherever the north or south bound cyclists face a stop sign, there is also a stop for cross traffic -- except at the corner of Milvia and Rose, where Milvia has stop signs but Rose does not. This is a bad arrangement. Cyclists coming along Milvia come to expect that cross traffic will stop; some of the 4-way stops have a small "all-way stop" text below the STOP sign, some do not. Then, coming to Rose, a cyclist using typical cyclist caution (slowing, looking in both directions) may see north or south bound cars approaching but assume they will stop when they get closer. This can lead a cyclist to proceed into the intersection when approaching cross traffic is near enough to be a hazard. I recommend making Rose/Milvia a 4-way stop; or else post signs on Milvia at Rose indicating that "Cross traffic does not stop".

A severe car-bike collision happened on 2/2/16 at Bancroft & Fulton in Berkeley. http://www.berkeleyside.com/2016/02/02/after-bike-crash-roads-closed-near-uc-berkeley-campus/ Fulton is so clearly a bike hazard, while also being an obvious North-South route for cyclists between Berkeley and North Oakland. Yet the bike lane that exists on Oxford ends at Bancroft Way, while at the same time the car lanes EXPAND from 2 to 3, leaving no room for bikes. Then at Fulton and Durant car lanes go to 2 again and cyclists on Fulton then have to dodge parked cars from Durant through Dwight, while hoping drivers behind them on Fulton don't get aggressive. Please add this route to the Bikes East Bay list of needed bike lanes. Thanks! UPDATE 2/4/16: Dave & Robert of BikeEastBay staff report they "were working with city staff and encouraging improvements on Fulton even before this collision. There were some huge missed opportunities to do something last year when Fulton was repaved, as the street was already identified to receive bike lanes all the way back in the 1998 bike plan. I brought this to their attention when I heard about the paving plan, and yet they still declined to work on it. The Berkeley bike plan update happening now will probably take these proposals for Fulton even further. We are now seeing what we can do to use this incident as an example of why the city needs to be proactive about bikeway improvements everywhere around the city, and speed up the implementation process at known problem locations to better avoid similar tragedies in the future."
