Notified About

  • Alcatraz Ave And King St Berkeley, CA - South Berkeley

    The intersection of Alcatraz Ave and King St in south Berkeley has a 2-way stop for traffic on King St, but no stop for traffic on Alcatraz going east or west. Alcatraz is a car arterial but King St is a highly trafficked bike boulevard and pedestrian corridor.

    Even with the existing flashing beacons on the crosswalk pedestrians still find it very difficult to cross Alcatraz here because drivers just don't yield, and with the poor sightlines due to all the curbside parking and the fast vehicle speeds on Alcatraz, cyclists on King St also find it very difficult and dangerous to cross here, even after stopping and yielding to cross traffic.

    I think the solution to this problem would be to either turn the 2-way stop into a 4-way stop at this intersection, or install a traffic signal that is timed to coordinate with the one at Alcatraz and Adeline. During the busiest hours Alcatraz traffic backs up all the way past King St, but motorists continue to block the intersection and fail to let cross traffic through. As such, a stop sign or traffic signal here would allow the bike boulevard traffic to make it past Alcatraz usually without even impacting the vehicles on that street at all.

  • 1800 63rd Street berkeley, California - South Berkeley
    4 tents have popped back up on the east side of the Bart tells again at the intersection of 63rd and MLK.
    it is unsanitary and they are not part of the approved encampment on the west side of the tracks.

    Creek is milky colored. Very unusual.
  • 3325–3347 Martin Luther King Jr Way Berkeley CA 94703, United States - North Oakland
    Massive amount of dumped items and loose stuffing material everywhere.
  • 1930 Hearst Ave Berkeley, CA, 94709, USA - Berkeley
    There are now three (3) separate tents with attendant piles of stuff on the block of Hearst Avenue between Milvia and MLK,Jr. Way. This is in direct violation of the local ordinance restricting encampments in residential areas. In addition, these tents/piles are obstructing the sidewalk and in one case, continually spilling into the street and bike lane. One tent is directly next to the North Berkeley Senior Center at the corner of MLK, Jr. Way. Another is a bit further east on the same side of the street (north) and the pile of stuff that has been present for over one year is further east of that one. The tent at the corner of MLK, Jr. Way has been there for at least two days without removal, and it appears that this has emboldened another urban camper to erect a second one. At this rate, that stretch of Hearst will become overrun with tents and piles of stuff. This is all within a residential area, directly across the street from homes and adjacent to Ohlone park where there are play structures and a tot land. Please immediately remove these tents and piles. This is a clear public health hazard, a violation of the ban on encampments in residential areas, a clear violation of the quantity of things permitted on public sidewalks, a clear obstruction of public sidewalks, etc., etc. What is it going to take to get this stuff removed?!!!!

  • 1820 West St Berkeley, CA 94702, USA - Berkeley
    More tents set up and more junk on the path
  • 1885 University Ave Berkeley, California - Berkeley
    I'm all for bicycling being accessible to everyone, but the new Go Bike installation at Trader Joe's eliminated several bike racks that me and my partner used. Now there are only 2 racks on the University Ave. side, which are crowded. In addition TJs employees take deliveries on the University side and often block bike racks. We want more bike rack parking near the street entrance. Please bring back the bike racks that were there.
  • 1949 Milvia Street Berkeley, California - Berkeley
    For several days there has been a large stack of junk on the sidewalk near Krishna Copy Center.
  • Potholes Archived
    2319 Sixth Street Berkeley, California - Berkeley
    Major potholes for 5 blocks on 6th street, repair ASAP. Cannot drive straight with so many potholes, hazardous to pedestrian and drivers.
  • 6145-6199 Occidental Street Oakland, California - North Oakland
    On the southwest corner of the intersection's circular planter, there is a large pothole that is from soft asphalt filling in excavation from construction work. It dips in severely and then ramps up above the road. Very dangerous for bicyclists. I hit it in the dark, fell, and separated my shoulder. Please fix it so others don't get hurt!
