The hazard is lack of shoulder of any kind on Diablo Road which is frequented by both cyclists and aggressive drivers.

Location

Diablo Blvd

description

This stretch of Diablo Blvd has no shoulder, and has a tall hedge that grows straight up from the pavement. In the West-bound direction there is nowhere for a cyclist to go if an aggressive driver runs them off the road. This happened to me on Tuesday (July 30). I know the residents of Diablo have been complaining about cyclists going through their neighborhood on the way to/from the South entrance to Mt. Diablo. So, on Tuesday my buddy and I decided to chance Diablo Rd. While in the stretch with no shoulder a VERY Aggressive driver in a pickup truck started honking at us when he was 50yrds behind us. We were single file, etc. He wanted us to disappear, but that is not possible on that stretch of road and he nearly drove me and my friend into the hedge, as well as nearly missing an oncoming car. My point is, if the Diablo residents don't want cyclists in their neighborhood, then something must be done to make Diablo Rd safer. I would rather get a ticket on the quiet street, than be killed or maimed on Diablo Rd. I have talked about this stretch of road with other cyclists and my story is not unique. In summary, the hazard is lack of shoulder of any kind on a road frequented by both cyclists and aggressive drivers. UPDATE 10-11-13: Submitted (belatedly) to Danville. Received Request #13-1789. (Just rode this stretch last Wednesday!)

Bike Lanes on Diablo Rd to South Gate Need Support

Bike Lanes on Diablo Rd to South Gate Need Support

The growth in bicycling in the East Bay and in particular the increasing popularity of bike racing is affecting the community of Diablo first-hand. On any given sunny weekend, hundreds of bicyclists ride to and from South Gate of Mt. Diablo to climb the mountain, and many choose to avoid the dangerous mile-long stretch of Diablo Rd with no shoulders and high-speed SUV traffic coming from the neighborhoods toward Blackhawk by cutting-thru the community of Diablo along Alameda Diablo Rd.  Residents of Diablo have become frustrated with some of these bicyclists who race thru the neighborhood past their homes, not stopping at stop signs or yielding to residents walking along the edge of the sidewalk-free streets. Because of this, they are weighing options to limit traffic into Diablo to ‘local’ trips only.

An opportunity has arisen to address the cause of the problem by getting the Town of Danville to require the developer of the Magee/Summerhill Subdivision Project to study bike lanes on Diablo Rd. The environmental report for the Magee Project essentially ignores issue bike safety.

  • A public hearing on the project is scheduled Tuesday, June 18, 7:00-9:00pm at the Danville Community Center, 420 Front Street. Come voice support for studying safe bike lanes on Diablo Rd
  • Send an email of support to David Crompton, Principal Planner, (925-324-3349) Town of Danville asking that the Magee/Summerhill Project fully study bike lanes on Diablo Rd.

Eastbound bike lane at 505 Diablo Rd. (corner of Via Hermosa) is perpetually 40% to 50% obstructed by leaves and trash. This condition forces bicycles to be too close to motor vehicles and has persisted for more than a year. Diablo Rd is 2 lanes and heavily traveled. There is a residential fence that traps leaves and trash - especially slippery when wet.

Traffic signal fails to detect bicycles

Location

Brookside Dr. & Sycamore Valley Rd.
94526 Danville
US

description

Bicycles are unable to trigger the traffic signal to provide a green signal to either cross or turn left onto Sycamore Valley Rd. without the presence of a motor vehicle. Brookside Dr. is a Class III (signed) bicycle route. Bicyclists have two options: 1) wait for a motor vehicle intending to cross Sycamore Valley or 2) dismount, walk onto the sidewalk, and press the pedestrian crossing button. Depending on the time of day, cyclists may face a long wait if relying on a motor vehicle to trigger a green signal. If dismounting, cyclists must either cross Sycamore Valley as a pedestrian or scramble back to the street and remount. (It takes approximitately five seconds to clear the intersection on a bicycle versus the twenty or so as a pedestrian. The faster the cyclist clears the intersection, the less delay there is to traffic on Sycamore Valley Rd.) Notably, the lanes on this side of the intersection lack visible detector loop sawcuts in the pavement. Even if the traffic signal did detect bicycles, there are no visual cues to cyclists as to where they should position themselves. Contrast this with the south side (Brookside Dr. northbound) of the intersection, where the the straight/right-turn lane has two visible detector loop sawcuts. Bicycles are detected here and receive the green signal without the presence of motor vehicles. Please request that the Town investigate the following: - Adjust the sensitivity of the inductive loop sensors to detect bicycles crossing or turning left onto Sycamore Valley Rd. from Brookside Dr. southbound, - Paint a bicycle symbol stencil (identical to those found at the Iron Horse Trail's signalized crossing of San Ramon Valley Blvd. in downtown) over the "sweet spot" to indicate where cyclists should position themselves, and - Trim the foliage at the northwest corner of the intersection (visible on the right side of the attached photo, "Brookside&SycVly-intersection.JPG") to improve line-of-sight between the sidewalk and Brookside Dr. southbound. This may be the responsibility of the property owner of the house immediately adjacent to the intersection, so please make the request if necessary. Thank you for your assistance. *** Sidenote: Is there any way to create paragraph breaks? Using <p> and <br> tags did not yield any results. Apologies for the "massive" text.

Green Valley Rd.

description

Recent re-paving of this road included re-striping of the bike lane heading in the northbound and southbound direction. About midway between Stone Valley Rd. and Diablo Rd., an asphalt curb separates the bike lane and the roadway. Additionally, there is a cinder block retaining wall at the shoulder of the road; the bike lane passes between the cinder block retaining wall and the asphalt curb. A curb of this type has been in place at this area for as long as I can remember (more than 20 years). The recent roadwork resulted in the asphalt curb being moved toward the shoulder of the roadway by more than 12 inches, thereby squeezing the bike lane to a width that is EXTREMELY dangerous and almost impassable by a cyclist. The cyclist's only safe route for proceeding through this area is to move into the roadway (out of the bike lane) for the brief distance (about 30 meters) until it is safe to re-enter the bike lane. To make matters more dangerous, the asphalt curb is NOT painted to match the white bike lane stripe; it is not clearly visible while riding at night. This road is a popular route by cyclists traveling to/from Mt. Diablo's south gate entrance. The recent roadwork on Green Valley road has created what I believe to be a significant hazard and should be addressed immediately. Thanks for listening. Joseph Lyons (925) 383-4240
