Montclair / Hills
Colton Blvd Oakland, California - MontclairThe intersection of Colton & Heartwood is a disaster waiting to happen. At this crossroad, only 1 direction has a stop sign. I have witnessed several near misses lately as traffic traveling up Heartwood makes a left onto Colton (there is no stop sign) and traffic going down Colton continues straight on to Colton (again no stop sign). This needs to be a 4 way stop. With the increased traffic due to the long standing closure of Snake Rd, this is a very dangerous intersection.
5534-5540 Thornhill Drive Oakland, California - Merriwood
This is a very deep and new pothole (I am familiar with many other Thornhill "favorites"). I hit it with my drivers side front tire and it blew out the sidewall (less than 8,000 miles on my tired and no previous damage). Almost $300 to replace the tire. Please don't let this happen to others.
This pothole is in a critical location as anyone turning onto Thornhill from the freeway or from Moraga Blvd will encounter the pothole -- you can't swerve to the left because you risk going into oncoming traffic. There are frequently cars parked on the right. Pothole is located on the right side of the street as you are traveling N/NE.
6401-6411 Snake Road Oakland, California - Montclair
Snake Rd is closed indefinitely at the 6600 block because of damage from the December 11-12 fire.
Please change the sign at the 4 way stop intersection of Snake and Colton to say "Road Closed Ahead, No Thru Traffic" rather than the current "Road Work" sign.
Drivers are passing the "Road Work" sign then making dangerously fast U turns when they get to the closed section.
5741 Thornhill Drive Oakland, California - Merriwood
There are many huge holes and small holes all along Thornhill Drive from Hwy 13 to Merriewood Drive. Cars are swerving to avoid them and it's creating a very dangerous situation, especially given that it's near an elementary school.
Additionally, all along the south side of Thornhill Drive from Hw 13 to the school are parking spots that are frequently used by parents parking and walking their kids to school. There are deep trenches near the stores that cars get trapped in and it's very dangerous.
The whole stretch of road needs to be repaved.
6150 Moraga Ave Piedmont, CA 94611, USA - MontclairNeed a gate door for the infant/toddler area of the park. A gate is useless with out a door that closes. There use to be a gate door there and would love to see it replaced! Thank you!!
Thornhill Dr Oakland, California - MerriwoodThere are a minimum of 20 potholes on Thornhill dr, the majority of which are dangerously large and have existed for years. The street is generally deteriorated and there are major cracks in the asphalt.
6946-6970 Balsam Way - MerriwoodThere has been significant erosion from the upslope lots on Balsam Way. With increased traffic on the road and more pedestrians out, the narrowing streets have made it very unsafe. There has been accidents involving dogs and motor vehicles, resulting in the death of a dog. This street needs to be widened.
17055 Broadway Ter Oakland, CA - MerriwoodThere are two large potholes, one on the uphill lane and one on the downhill lane of Broadway Terrance between 17051 and 17055. They have been getting larger and deeper with each rain.
6959 Balsam Way Oakland, CA 94611, USA - MerriwoodThere is constant pooling of water from the combination of a French drain and apparently some underground natural water sources on Balsam Way. The street was swept only a few days prior to taking this photo. The water is immediately pooling after being swept, it's becoming stagnant, smelling awful, and is a breeding ground for mosquitos. The city needs to do something about the lack of drainage on Balsam Way.
6959 Balsam Way Oakland, California - Merriwood
Buried fire hydrant at risk of pipe breaking and perhaps unusable by Oakland Fire.
Opposite 6946 Balsam.
Balsam Way Oakland, California - MerriwoodWe have been dealing with the issue of water pooling, not draining, and becoming a breeding ground for mosquitos on Balsam Way for several YEARS. As far as I can tell, the city hasn’t provided any reasonable solution nor are they coming out and scraping the sludge. There are children who play in the neighborhood and it is a health hazard. The city needs to be up here scraping lower Balsam Way on a regular basis.
