Traffic signal at Redwood Rd. & Skyline Blvd. doesn't detect bikes

description

The traffic signal on westbound Redwood Rd. at the intersection of Skyline Blvd. isn't triggered by bicycles. This has been reported and closed three times on SeeClickFix and it still doesn't detect bicycles, making it difficult and unsafe to cross Skyline Blvd. Due to high speed traffic and poor sight lines this is a very difficult intersection for cyclists to cross against the red light. Will it take a collision and subsequent lawsuit to get the city of Oakland to adjust this traffic signal so it will detect bicycles? Update 7-18-17: submitted to Oakland Public Works. Received received service request #746463. Emphasis placed on not closing the report until after Public Works verifies that the signal detects any bicycle at the intersection.

Several large potholes have recently appeared on 41st Street between Gilbert Street and Broadway. One pothole about half-way down the hill is particularly deep and dangerous for cyclists, especially in the rain when it is not easy to see. This section of street has shared lane markings. Update 1-12-17: Submitted to OPW; received Service Request Number: 703936. Highlighted the most serious (to cyclists) on the descent toward Broadway, so hopefully that will be seen as a priority.

many school days between 5:30 and 6:30 cars are double parked in the southbound bike lane of the 9800 block of Bancroft Avenue. They appear to be parents picking up their children at Reach Academy. The bike lane striping badly needs re-painting and there are no bike lane signs at the beginning of the block or on the street. Update 10/22/16: Reported to Oakland PW. Received SR #689858.

Terrible Road Condition

The road surface for cars and bikes is horrific along Broadway (in both the northbound and southbound direction) between Kieth Ave and the on ramp/off ramp to Highway 24. Not only is the road pocked with holes, rifts, and cracks, there is often loose gravel on the road making it even more dangerous to bike lines. The northbound direction is a popular bike route that does not have a bike lane. This is a public safety hazard. UPDATE 7-11-16: Good news... per Bike East Bay staff, the construction of Keith/Broadway is supposed to start any day now, although it's a pretty substantial project with a bike signal at the intersection and a protected bikeway included on Broadway from Keith up to Golden Gate, so it might take a while to complete. However, while the area around the intersection will be resurfaced, the rest of Keith coming up the hill will not, so that pavement will stay kind of rough for a while. Another project later this year will resurface Broadway from Broadway Terrace up to Keith and add buffered bike lanes, and a second project in 2017 will fix some pavement on College Ave and add bike lanes there from Broadway to Alcatraz as well, so at least there will be some other options for people who prefer to avoid Keith in the meantime. However, the bumpy part of Keith Ave is not on the city's current 5-year paving plan, so the best thing for an individual to do is contact Councilmember Dan Kalb's office to ask that it be resurfaced via the discretionary funds he is provided with each year.
