141 California 82 Burlingame, California
The sidewalk between Howard Ave and Newlands Ave on El Camino Real is very unsafe to walk. There are multiple issues:
1) sidewalk is too low - almost level with the street (El Camino Real) at some point
2) sidewalk is uneven / lumpy with patches
3) sidewalk is too narrow - maybe 5 ft max.
I feel unsafe to walk with my newborn in a stroller. Especially walking north with oncoming traffic facing us. Please fix the unevenness, raise it above the street level and widen the sidewalk.
1285-1299 Oak Grove Avenue Burlingame, California
Hi...Oak Grove at Ansel.
1. Oak Grove is a straightaway with many drivers constantly exceeding the posted speed limit.
2. Though zebra painted, asphalt paving now covers up a chunk of the zebra hashing at the Oak Grove/Ansel crosswalk.
3. Especially in summer with leaves on the trees the signs indicating a crosswalk are often covered and not visible to drivers.
4. Drivers have little visibility as to the presence of the crosswalk (especially those heading west as there is a slight downhill to Oak Grove prior to Ansel and many drivers are speeding).
The ideal solution would be to have pedestrian-triggered crosswalk flashing lights (as on California in front of Stacks). However, in the absence of funding for this solution could you please...
A. Repaint the zebra striping to ensure maximum visibility.
B. Install signage in the middle of the crosswalk as was recently done on Oak Grove at Acacia (see image).
With both of these I am hopeful that drivers will slow down and recognize the presence of the crosswalk which I use every day.
Thanks very much for your help!
1651-1673 California Dr Burlingame, CA 94010, USAThere's a beige RV on California Dr between Dufferin and Rosedale that hasn't moved from last week. Similarly there's a blue Prius also on California between Oxford and Cambridge that also hasn't moved in a week. Pls consider putting notices on these vehicles.
1040-1070 Broadway Burlingame, CaliforniaThis was reported earlier as issue 1866097 and subsequently fixed, but it seems like the issue was reintroduced while work on the Broadway interchange continued.
Basically, when going southbound on Broadway and you come to the Carolan intersection right before the train tracks, There are two dedicated left turn lanes to head to Carolan. The problem is, the right turn lane has always been, historically, a lane that allowed drivers to drive straight forward across the tracks to enter the turn lane for California. This is supremely idiotic for multiple reasons.
For one thing, drivers are still driving straight to cross the tracks from the right side dedicated turn lane, because the signage is terrible and because they've done that for years and it just makes sense. This causes confusion to drivers on the lane to the immediate right of that lane who try to merge over to the turn lane onto California because suddenly they have to watch out for traffic coming into their lane unexpectedly from the left. Secondly, even if all the drivers were following the signage, you're asking people to change lanes right before train tracks in an intersection that has a history of car strikes because of how the lighted intersection is set up just past the tracks. You guys have set up an already dangerous intersection to now be confusing as well.
Based on what i saw of the Interchange plans, it seems like the dual turn lanes towards Carolan were always part of the plan, which is idiotic because hardly anyone needs to turn onto Carolan and the reasons i listed above. While the issue appeared to have been fixed in early 2016, someone didn't let the street painters in on the change because the dangerous intersection is back.
