  • 4700 Bohannon Dr Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA - Menlo Park

    This is in regards to blocking off the merge lane entering highway 101 South from Marsh Road. On Friday June 7, 2019, the lane that is normally available for cars entering the highway to merge onto the highway was blocked in a way that it leads the car needing to merge directly into the first lane of the highway, without giving the merging car appropriate time and distance to safely enter the highway. The cones were set up diagonally, which forces the merging vehicle to enter lane 1 of the highway at an angle. It is very difficult to pay attention to where the cones are leading and at the same time try to safely enter the highway. As a result of the angle that the cones forced the merging vehicle to enter, it was very difficult to get a clear view of the upcoming vehicles, thus making it very unsafe to enter the highway. I had to continue straight, running over a cone, which remained trapped under my car for a couple of miles until it eventually fell off. I was unable to pull over because the exit lane and shoulder was blocked off from March Road to Willow Road.

    Please allow ample distance for merging vehicles to safely enter the highway or close the exit altogether. I would rather take a detour than risk not being able to safely enter the highway.

  • Trader Joe'S 1194 El Camino Real, Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA - Menlo Park

    Hello There,

    Please remove the sawhorse no parking signs in front of Trader Joe's. They are really ugly and they prevent street sweepers from accessing the curb. I'd suggest simply removing them and allowing parking there once again but if the City feels that this prohibition is still warranted, then the area should be red curbed so that this blight can be removed.

    More broadly, I recommend extreme caution when considering the placement of signs, bollards, berms, K rail... on city streets. Almost always the placement of these things create more problems than they fix.

  • 1025 Del Norte Ave Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA - Menlo Park

    Not sure if the "Homeless Encampment/Squatters" is the rite category. I live on Del Norte, so I am familiar with the area. There is a large RV camper parked on the street, it has been there for days, day and night, and in a no parking zone. It is not registered. I think maybe someone is living in it, and I do not want to see more RV's on our street. Can you please look into this matter. I did not know you could park on the street overnight in menlo Park.

  • Santa Cruz Ave & Sand Hill Rd Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA - West Menlo Park
    The right-turn lane from SB Santa Cruz Ave onto WB Sand Hill Road has an extremely hazardous oil slick as of 10:20 AM 10/9/19. It is particularly dangerous for cyclists, because it appears to be just a water spill, but is slippery enough to cause a wipeout when making the turn even when traveling slowly. This could easily cause a cyclist to crash into a vehicle and be seriously injured or worse. Please clean it up or at least put up signs until it is clean. It looks like whatever vehicle created the slick continued to drive westbound on Sand Hill Road, but the slick is most dangerous in that turn lane.
  • 1359 Henderson Ave Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA - Menlo Park
    1359 Henderson Ave has a car parked on the lawn for a long time all three of these cars look abandoned and have not moved in over a year. I'm concerned this house may be abandoned and people/neighbors are leaving cars on the property.
  • Sand Hill Rd & Santa Cruz Ave Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA - West Menlo Park
    A metal reflective sign is damaged and bent into the roadway requiring cars to swerve to avoid it when making a left turn from the far left turn lane from Sand Hill Road east to Santa Cruz Ave.
