Notified About

  • 944-998 Ashby Avenue Berkeley, California - Berkeley
    The area of Ashby Ave between Bay Street and San Pablo Ave is very bumpy and has many potholes on both sides of the road. It's quite treacherous on a bike, and I'm frequently concerned about my car in this area as well. It's such a high traffic area to and from the highway, it would be wonderful if this section of Ashby could be repaved as nicely as the stretch of Ashby between Sacramento and Shattuck was recently.

  • 3325–3347 Martin Luther King Jr Way Berkeley CA 94703, United States - North Oakland
    Massive amount of dumped items and loose stuffing material everywhere.
  • 1820 West St Berkeley, CA 94702, USA - Berkeley
    More tents set up and more junk on the path
  • 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.

  • 2408 Mcgee Avenue Berkeley, California - Berkeley
    The stretch of McGee Ave between Dwight Way and University Ave is one I travel frequently by bike and car, and it has many uneven stretches due to patches that are now very uneven and hard to navigate. As this street also has few streetlights, it is a scary one to traverse at night, particularly on a bike. It would be wonderful if this section of McGee could be repaved.
  • Bay St Berkeley, CA, 94710, USA - Berkeley
    The homeless encampment tents have moved off the railroad track back onto the freeway off ramp at Shellmound Avenue, and garbage from the site is scattered everywhere on that corner now. Is it possible to get everything cleared up and prevent the tents from moving back and forth from corner to corner in the area? Also, some vehicles that get off the ramp often stop by the tents, making it unsafe for other motorists exiting the freeway. I know that homeless encampments are a big discussion point for bay area city leaders but until they figure out how to best handle the situation, as a resident in the area, it is very frustrating to see these rent encampments and related issues that come with them constantly recurring in the neighborhood.

    2945 Bolivar Drive Berkeley, California - Berkeley
    This tent encampment is a health hazard for those that live in it and those that pass through it. There is trash everywhere, a dog that chases runners, and the smell is alarming.
