  • Near 165 State Rt 208 Oakland, NJ 07436 - Oakland

    Sign on 287N & sign on ramp from 208N to 287N have merge signs indicating merge, however this ramp & 287N do not merge, ramp becomes 3rd lane on 287. According to the MUTCD it appears a "Added Lane" Sign (W4-3) is more appropriate and the ramp should contain "Left Lane Ends" sign.

    From what I gather from MUTCD:
    "The Merge sign should not be used where two roadways converge and merging movements are not required."

    "The Merge sign should not be used in place of a Lane Ends sign where lanes of traffic moving on a single roadway must merge because of a reduction in the actual or usable pavement width"

  • 29-99 Skyline Dr Oakland, NJ 07436, USA - Oakland
    The 287 exit ramp onto Skyline Drive in Oakland is falling apart. The seams, potholes, general surface of the roadway are miserable. WHY didn't they pave the off-ramp when they paved 287 in that section? Watch out, you'll ruin your rims if you hit one of the many holes.
  • 270 Ramapo Valley Road - Oakland
    When the gas lines were worked on, the repair to RVR was horribly done and the bumps cause every truck to sound like a bomb going off.
  • 6-16 Franklin Ave Oakland, NJ 07436, USA - Oakland
    Either fix it, or tear it down! This landmark historic building eyesore is a disgrace to Oakland, Bergen County Freeholders, the Mayor and Council who pour Green Acre funds into the mountains while this structure rots. Either fix it, or tear it down.
  • 9-11 Princeton Terrace Oakland, NJ 07436, USA - Oakland
    Is the law no parking on ANY street in Oakland from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. a law, or a suggestion? Cars park on the streets in the college section every night, not just at this location. Why is this OK?
  • Ramapo Valley Rd At Franklin Ave Oakland, NJ 07436, USA - Oakland
    What is up with the Steam House and Van Allen House? Not one thing has been done. For God's sake, tear them down already. The only change on site is the fading Ramapough Conservancy sign. Much as the Bergen County Freeholders Board sign did, which was once adorned the Steam House. That faded, the work parties faded, the vote to tear these eyesores down faded. What good is this Ramapough Conservancy organization doing? I mean really. What the hell. Seems like 'four more years' of rural blight. Wasn't the Mayor going to get this resolved one way or the other?
  • 1 Skyline Dr Oakland, NJ 07436, USA - Oakland
    At the bottom of Skyline Dr., under the 287 overpass, right lane heading south are several super nasty holes. It's dark under there and they're hard to see... go very slow or you'll dent your rims.
  • 11-21 Wenonah Ave Oakland, NJ 07436, USA - Oakland
    There is increase traffic activity on the block, with multiple cars with different occupants stopping and starting, turning around in residents driveway, noisy, speeding-visiting one particular house. Leaving articles of clothing and food containers on residents property.
  • Oakland NJ 07436, USA - Oakland
    On a recent visit back to our hometown for our IHHS reunion, many classmates noticed the changed scene in downtown Oakland. Long gone are the tree-lined streets and Railway station, in fact, there is very little greenery in the downtown area. That said, just think if you could duplicate the Railway Station and bring passenger service back to Oakland, and turn that blank lot into something attractive and serviceable to the Oakland community. Take down the dying pine tree by the tracks, and replace it with a new blue spruce for holiday lighting. Re-do sidewalks to pavers and add some small roadside trees in the center of town. It would be a huge improvement from all the "gray" parking lots in the center of town.

  • 7 Dartmouth Way Oakland, NJ 07436, USA - Oakland
    Residents are not properly securing their recycling put out for Wednesday pick-ups. Invariably, there is garbage cans knocked over and items blown all over, where they remain, get run over, and left on the streets. Whether it's newspapers, cardboard, or glass bottles, residents are littering when they don't secure their trash. And it's not just this location, it's all over town, and it's disgraceful. The Mayor and Council need to take charge of this issue and pass and ordinance that residents secure there garbage on recycling day, or be fined for littering, period.
  • 163 W Oakland Ave Oakland, NJ 07436, USA - Oakland
    Traffic signal at Skyline Drive and West Oakland Avenue cycling continuously even when no vehicles have arrived at detection zone on West Oakland Avenue. Causing unnecessary delays on Skyline Drive.
