description

SB Fremont Blvd. South of Decoto Rd right pass bus stop has no shoulder or bike lane. Too narrow and too many car don't leave enough room for cyclist. NB also has no shoulder but the road is a little wider. UPDATE 5-11-17: Submitted query to Bike East Bay's staff; awaiting feedback from the most knowledgeable person on Fremont issues. UPDATE 5-15-17: From Bike East Bay's staff working most closely with Fremont Boulevard: this was one of the most mentioned streets in the comments of the Bike Master Plan Update's survey. That particular section is slated for some medium-term improvements: (see document, attached as a .png file). There are definitely some immediate safety improvements coming to Fremont Blvd in the short term since it is such a high risk corridor, but the entire project means probably a 5 to 10 year timeline.

There's a gap between two steel plates covering up a whole in the road on State Street. The gap is just about the right width for a bicycle tire, in the middle of the bike lane. See picture. It would be better if they pushed the two plates closer together. Update 4-30-17: Submitted to Fremont PW, w/cc to the engineering manager. Included picture, which makes the hazard very clear!

Missing utility cover on Mowry ave close to Peralta intersection. UPDATE 5-21-15: Submitted to Cindy & Frans at Fremont PW. Frans quickly replied and had his crew check it out: "I’ll have staff check the utility cover to see which district/public entity owns the facility, we’ll then notify them about the missing lid. I’ve also copied our Maintenance Division on this email to see if they can visit the intersection at Mowry and Peralta and mark the area where the area where the cover is missing." Also heard from Carl Valdez, presumably in the Maintenance Div, confirming that he's working on it.

Potentially dangerous railroad tracks (at a slanting angle).

railroad tracks at oblique angle

Location

32462 Alvarado Boulevard
94587 Union City
US

description

On Alvarado Blvd, at the border of City of Fremont and Union City, the railroad tracks are slanting at a very acute angle to the bike path and ped path, causing bike tires to easily get caught. Signage would be helpful to avoid bike accidents. UPDATE 11-22-13: Sent to Fremont (Frans & Yashin) with a request for either improved conditions or guidance on jurisdiction. Fremont, Union City or Union Pacific??? UPDATE 1-28-14: Mirza Sabanovic, Transportation Engineer in the Fremont PW Dep't, directed me to the railroad. I also learned there's a new Union Pacific contact named Peggy, based in Rocklin, CA: cell phone number is (916)705-2395 and her e-mail is eygeuhay@up.com. Submitted to Peggy today, asking for a smoother grade as well as better signage.
