Bike/ped bridge with slippery metal plates

Status:Resolved (Class I (bike/ped path) / Priority injured)
Case ID:: -10289

Location

Farallon Common

US

description

A new bike/ped bridge has been constructed over Paseo Padre (parallel to the BART tracks now under construction for Warm-Springs extension). The bridge has metal plates at both ends. They are part of the design (NOT temporary) and become very slippery when wet. Moreover, they are situated right where a cyclist would apply the brakes when navigating the bollards. The result is the wheels will lock-up and skid, causing a crash. It is imperative that the metal plates are replaced, or at least coated with a material that increases the friction.

Scott Creek Rd road surface condition very poor under I-680 overpass

pothole or pavement cracks

The road surface beneath the I-680 overpass on Scott Creek Rd is in very poor condition and has been for years. It should be resurfaced.

Jurisdiction

crossing from Gaulladet across Stevenson to Central Park is impossible on bike unless one crossed to the sidewalk on the east side of Gaulladet, and then once across you are on the wrong side of the street! No bike wire.

Status:Resolved (Class III (no special facility) / Priority major)
Case ID:: -10184

type

traffic signal not triggered by bicycle

Location

Gaulladet & Stevenson
94536 Fremont
US

description

Bicycling from the CA School for the Blind on tandems is very hazardous at this intersection leading to Central Park. There is no bike wire. The only way to get a green light is to cross to the east side of Gaulladet, have the stoker hold the bike while the pilot jumps off to press the button, run back and get on the bike, and proceed across Stevenson. The light is also very short. Once across, you are then on the left side of the road. Very cumbersome and dangerous.

Eleven East Bay Schools Ready to Build $5.7 Million in Safe Routes to School Projects

Eleven East Bay Schools Ready to Build $5.7 Million in Safe Routes to School Projects

We are happy to report that the California Department of Transportation has awarded 11 Safe Routes to School grants to schools in the East Bay. Is your kid’s school on the list below? A total of $5.7 million in funds have been awarded in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. These projects include new bikeways on Farm Bureau Rd in Concord, Canal Rd in Pittsburg and Blacow Rd in Fremont. Alameda County schools in particular did well to receive so many grants, which is a testimony to the great work of Transform, Cycles of Change, and our supportive local cities and their staff to get more kids walking and bicycling to school. Good habits start early! On Bike to School Day this past May, bicycling rates to many schools tripled, and the numbers are only growing. It’s is great to see cities working hard to keep up with this surging demand. It is also encouraging to know that thanks to our successful advocacy work, the regional Safe Routes to School Program is intact and fully funded for the next 4 years. We are also working to ensure that the State does not take any of these monies in the future for other roadway projects. Your help may be needed for this. Stay tuned.
