pothole or pavement cracks
Russell at King
Several utility covers on Russell Street west of King Street are recessed by several inches, which creates sharp roadway edges that could easily cause a bicyclist to crash. Usually the road surface is even with the utility covers, but not here. Adding a rubber cover might be a good solution. This is a Bicycle Boulevard. UPDATE 2-3-18: Submitted to Berkeley PW; received service request number 384787. Also submitted to the PW admin office, asking if Berkeley has a policy of ensuring paving contractors raise the utility covers to meet the road surface. UPDATE 2-5-18: Heard back from the ever-helpful admin in the PW dep't: "I’ve added your question to the case file and forwarded it to the Public Works Engineers, whose staff oversee the paving programs."
