Description

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!
