  • 6200-6278 Thornhill Dr Oakland, CA, 94611, USA - Merriwood
    The whole span of thornhill off Moraga up to the swim club is atrocious. Cars swerve to avoid mines, they were pot holes when i complained for the last 7 years and mow massive craters. Bikes cannot navigate the road. Suspensions on cars are destroyed daily. For a major street it is atrocious. Please, pretty please fix me.
  • 5506-5598 Thornhill Dr Oakland, CA, 94611, USA - Merriwood
    Please resurface the entire 100 yards of Thornhill road between Mountain and Moraga in Montclair. This artery has more than 10000 + cars a day driving on it between am and pm. After years of neglect it is in terrible shape. This image is one of a dozen potholes large enough for a car wheel to fit into.

    Location: Children's Play Area at Thornhill School

    Asset: Area Drain to sewer

    Observation: Apparent large sewer back-up

    - City records shows a large SANITARY SEWER line under the children's play area asphalt at the area drain where the hazardous condition is located.
    - There has been a large pool (dimensions of approximately: 10 ft x 15 ft) of stagnant, contaminated water on the asphalt of the children's play area at the school creating a hazardous condition.
    - The contaminated water recedes slowly over several days between rains and leaves a large amount of "muck", residue, and mold on the asphalt of the children's play area. This has occurred on 10 (+/-) occasions starting November 2019 until the present time February, 4th, 2020.
    - Staff has delineated the hazardous area with tape on or about November, 2019; delineation has remained through the present time.
    - Children are allowed to play in the area directly around all sides of the delineated hazardous area on school days, after school in an after care program "Adventure Time". Often the children's balls and play items get into the hazardous area and are returned to the children by staff without being washed. On several occasions children have both i) removed the delineation tape and ii) walked or ran under the delineation tape into the hazardous area.

    The sign in the middle of the road that alerts cars its a crosswalk is in dire need of an upgrade. There have been several close calls with cars and children going to and from Thornhill school. Please fix and better yet upgrade the corss walk to a lit up one. Before a child gets seriously hurt or killed. Thanks for your prompt response.
  • 1651-1653 Mountain Blvd Oakland, CA, 94611, USA - Merriwood
    This message is for DOT Director Ryan Russo and Assistant Director Wlad Wlassowsky. Every time the power goes out this signal goes to flashing when it comes back on until it's manually reset. It needs to be upgraded and have a battery back up. The signal at Thornhill and Moraga doesn't go to flashing after the power goes on. Only this one and it causes a whole list of Major Traffic Safety issues in the area with 2 elementary schools (Thornhill & Montclair) and many preschools. People can't get off the freeway because the back up, people can't get on the freeway because of the back up. This signal is only one block from Hwy 13 Thornhill/Moraga exit. Also in the morning you have a lot of kids walking to school. Please have some assess this signal and how it can be upgraded. Thank You
  • Thornhill Dr & Alhambra Ln Oakland, CA, 94611, USA - Merriwood
    The metal trash can inside the container at Thornhill and Alhambra has rusted out at the bottom so that garbage does not get picked up when the trash can is emptied. Can you please replace the trash can? Thanks!
  • 6321-6475 Thornhill Dr Oakland, CA, 94611, USA - Forestland
    The road surface on Thornhill Dr between Mountain Blvd and Sobrante St is significantly deteriorated. There are countless potholes that are several inches deep with sharp edges, representing a major safety issue for cars and bikes. This has been an ongoing problem, but it has developed from a nuisance into a serious public safety issue and hazardous driving conditions.
  • Sidewalk - Damage Acknowledged
    1634 Mountain Blvd Oakland, CA, 94611, USA - Merriwood
    The "sidewalk" / walkway at the NE corner of Mountain and Thornhill is in extremely poor condition. You can't see it in this picture, but it gets worse as you turn onto Thornhill. We have to navigate this each day with young kids walking to both Thornhill elementary and to KSS preschool across the street, and there are many other preschools on the block. It's almost impassible with a stroller, and certainly not safe. There's no good ramp access to the cross walk. Across the street where it's also bad, but not as much, I tripped once jogging and had a badly bruised forearm, possibly a microfracture, for a couple of months. I know that work has begun to insert a sidewalk across the street and up a few blocks from this location, but I want to make sure this corner is on the repair list.
  • 5534 Thornhill Dr Oakland, CA, 94611, USA - Montclair
    There are several deep and dangerous potholes on Thornhill Drive between Mountain Blvd and Moraga Avenue. Can you please repave this street? There are also a few very deep potholes further up Thornhill in front of the 7-11 near Thornhill Elementary School.
