23rd Street Traffic Calming bring a new bikeway to San Pablo and Richmond


This project involves the implementation of a “road diet,” which includes a reduction of lanes in each direction and bike lanes. In addition, the project will include pedestrian enhancements to improve safety and enhance traffic flow along 23rd Street in the City of San Pablo. The work is being coordinated with the adjoining City of Richmond project.

Westbound on Ohio (crossing Richmond Pkwy) - no bicycle trigger. When activated by car, not enough time for biker to cross.

Westbound on Ohio, crossing Richmond Parkway, the light is not activated by a bicycle. If a car happens to be there and activates the light, it does not stay green long enough for a biker to cross. In general, I have to press the pedestrian crossing button (which is only located on the south wide of Ohio), and that process still takes a long time. It is very inconvenient to cross this busy road. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=ohio+%26+2nd,+richmond&daddr=100+Chevron+Way,+Richmond,+CA+94801&hl=en&geocode=FXfHQgId2dC0-CmNMjUHsIKFgDHzYykiEwzzhw%3BFbbFQgId0oO0-Cl7geitzYKFgDFxcGGG4BbtsQ&gl=us&mra=ls&sll=37.930866,-122.377642&sspn=0.002243,0.004823&ie=UTF8&ll=37.930828,-122.377524&spn=0.008056,0.038581&z=15&layer=c&cbll=37.930863,-122.377534&panoid=XJKZ2NX_KHbz1lGu2IeIQQ&cbp=11,270.5,,0,1.3

Heading south on S Garrard, when almost to Cutting, you cross a set of railroad tracks. There is a big gap in the path of a bike wheel, and this gap is within the bounds of current Garrard bike lane. This is especially hazardous at night, because there are very few street lamps.

Today (1-20-2011), just after 5 pm, a commuter cyclist who was travelling south-bound on Harbour Way South caught his wheels in the railroad tracks while attempting to execute a turn onto the east-bound Wright Avenue bicycle lane. This solo bicycle crash resulted in moderate to severe facial injuries, and an unknown number of other injuries, to this helmeted rider who was removed from the scene in a semi-conscous state -- but not moving at all -- by Richmond Fire Paramedics. 2 fire trucks, one paramedic vehicle and 4 RPD attended the scene. Richmond PD is conducting an investigation. The ambient light was good, the road was dry and there was a fair amount of commuter vehicular traffic in the vicinity of the accident. Many motorists and two fellow cyclists (myself among them) stopped to render aid. Only one driver witnessed the accident (though other motorists and cyclists were on the scene in mere seconds) and he stayed to give his statement to RPD.
