Notified About

  • 29th And Ford Street Oakland, California - South Kennedy Tract

    Hello, I'm writing to let you know and request that the traffic light on the corner of 29th st and Ford (right after crossing from Alameda Park St Bridge), that leads to FWY 880-S be re-calibrated and timed better. Ever since it was installed in late Spring 2018 it has caused more and more traffic jams and long wait times to get over the bridge, and is significantly delaying traffic. It needs to be re-assessed, and stay green longer. I notice that the light right next to it (on the corner where 7-eleven is) stays green longer (thankfully), but the one that lets people get to freeway changes much faster and stays red much longer. This is really a problem, causing traffic to build up across the other side of bridge, spilling onto Park St and side streets....God forbid that in a true evacuation of the island, people would be stuck, not being able to get into Oakland or 880-S because of the bad timing of this light. Before this light was installed there were never traffic hold ups or long waits like this. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE recalibrate and give more green light time for people to cross. It feels like the timing and installation of this light was not well planned/thought out. PLEASE!

    EVERY SINGLE DAY, and especially on weekends, the red light is much longer and the green light people have to actually go is much shorter. that people need to wait for gives significantly shorter time for people to cross the light and get onto 880-S. The consequence to this is that bridge and Park St. traffic (including the side streets that cars are turning off of in order to get to the bridge) is backing up for blocks. This is becoming a MAJOR problem causing traffic delays and causing un-necessary time that people are waiting and waiting to cross bridge and get on freeway. HOWEVER, the GOOD NEWS is that the city of Oakland, and good people working for the traffic light division can EASILY fix this. again, PLEASE HELP this traffic problem resolve with a simple re-calibration to make the green light stay "green" much longer. There is hardly any cross traffic that will be affected from people coming through Ford Street (it is a tiny residential road w/ very little traffic).

    THank you for listening to this very needed request and for taking positive action to resolve. Please do contact me about the status and planned steps to fix this.
    Sincerely,
    Stephanie Cardenas

  • 301-399 Kennedy St Oakland, CA, 94606, USA - South Kennedy Tract
    The sidewalk is blocked in multiple locations on this block forcing pedestrians to walk on the busy road. This hazardous situation is made worse by multiple RVs illegally parked that in turn results in large trucks trying to access the CEMEX plant double parking blocking the bike lane forcing both pedestrians and cyclists into traffic. Please resolve before a serious accident occurs due to the negligence of the city in enforcing local ordinances.

    Half of the crosswalk is obliterated by weeds and an impassable island. This is not handicap accessible. In fact, even able bodied pedestrians have to step into traffic to cross the street. Cars coming around the corner from the new overpass have too much speed and momentum for safety sake.

  • E Seventh St Oakland 94606, United States - South Kennedy Tract
    This isn’t a crosswalk for our elderly or wheelchair dependent. The median is impassable and the corner dangerous since the overpass has been completed. This spot needs a stop for right turns onto Kennedy, ramps over the median, and a walk signal. Thanks!

    Trailer with a boat is parking there for several weeks. Trailer with a car wreck is a permanent part of the E7th St landscape. All those vehicles are owned by Joshua Bennett who at 3111 E7th St has a car chop - shop operation going. Trailer on the other side of the street is also his. This person is responsible for excessive parking and dumping on E7th and Chapman St.
