eastbound

description

There is a bike-pedestrian route, part of the Bay Trail, on Powell going east on the south side of Powell under I-80. On the east side of the freeway on Powell is an exit from I-80. This is a dangerous exit for bikes and of course pedestrians going east. There are no controls. I have had several near-misses myself. There would have been no near-misses for me if a safe crossing of the end of the exit from I-80 on Powell had been designed and implemented. Please do so now to avoid needless accidents. UPDATE 10-4-16: Submitted to CalTrans; received MSR Ticket Number: 635098. UPDATE 10-14-16: CalTrans responded: "Situation Acknowledged. Unable to estimate time needed." and "Your request has been forwarded to our bike coordinator for review. Thank you."
