    Crow Canyon Road between Cold Water and Alameda County line

    type

    debris in shoulder
    insufficient shoulder width

    description

    Crow Canyon Road north/east bound has some shoulders, but much of them are covered by dirt that has gradually slid on to the pavement. Has not been cleaned up for years. I see this road at least twice a week by bicycle and it is not for the faint of heart. The south/west direction has even smaller to non-existant shoulder width in parts, and some is covered by dirt/gravel. It's a shame because it has some sections where the shoulder is great!
