description

There is a pothole and patch of very rough road at the intersection of Wheeler and Russell. The spot is particularly hazardous because it is right where a lot of bicyclists turn right off the Russell St bike route onto Wheeler to head south towards Oakland. The pothole and road conditions could startle a rider, perhaps even to the point that they would lose control. UPDATE 5/24/16: Submitted to Berkeley PW, citing past reports as well. Received service request number 298542. Sending your (excellent) photos as well.

New road on Folger as it bends into Hollis. At the corner there is a concrete guuter but a 3 inch gap at the apex of the turn as one turns right from 7th onto Folger. A huge gap in the seam between the concrete and the asphalt. Perfect for catching a front tire and spilling a cyclist. What's more, the Folger part of the road was recently repaved and is beauty. But this chasm is a hot mess. This has been reported twice to Berkeley. No joy. UPDATE 5/19/16: Submitted to Berkeley PW, citing past reports as well. Received service request number 297958. Thanks for the photo as well. Very useful.

description

Curtis St., especially between Virginia and Cedar St., presents a dangerous hazard to cyclists going downhill from Virginia to Cedar on Curtis St. It is so hazardous that more and more cyclists are riding down the hill using the sidewalk which endangers pedestrians. Curtis St. is the first east through street alternative to using San Pablo Ave, so many trucks and motorists use it. For several years, neighbors have repeatedly asked Councilmember Linda Maio to expedite action to remedy the situation by getting the city to repave the street, but no action has been taken. UPDATE 5-15-16: Submitted to Berkeley PW. Received service request number 297179.

Intersection sign needed on bike boulevard

description

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".
