    Dangerous intersection for bicyclists and pedestrians. Needs a four-way stop

    The curb could be removed so that it's easier for cyclists to get from the sidewalk to the contraflow bike lane.

    Bike lanes need to meet Caltrans minimum width requirements or be removed.

    Please be sure that the traffic light sensors detect cyclists or install cameras to detect traffic stopped at the light instead.

    please keep the bike sharrows here, as there is no room to add a bike lane without removing on-street parking as well.

    If Pacific Ave were a two-way street, then cyclists could legally go in both directions instead of riding on the sidewalk or riding against traffic.

    Could there be some red-light traffic enforcement on Front Street?

    See video:

    Many motorists run red lights on Front Street, and it's not just a light that is a little orange, turning from yellow to red. It's full on red light, 35mph, pedestrians in the crosswalk or just cleared the crosswalk.

    Better connection from Arana Gulch path to Harbor Drive. Curb cut?

    How about some public access signage (something like a pedestrian-way street sign with a Name people can refer to) so people can see these routes are there for the public? The townhouse owners have done everything they can to make it look like their off-limits private property, which it is not.

    Remember the community-input plans for a "bicycle boulevard" on Cayuga, not many years ago, after a deadly drunk driver killed some people? How about dusting off that hard work and implementing some of it.

    How's about giving bicyclists a northbound opportunity on this block of Pacific and/or Front. Right now neither street does that so many northbound bicyclists "cheat" in various ways, like cutting through the bank parking lot on Front St. Also, this and other areas of Pacific run short of bike parking (inverted "U"s) anytime it's busy downtown. Want to solve car parking downtown? Make great bike parking facilities like they have in Europe.

    The San Lorenzo Park pedestrian bridge is a stoplight-free timesaver for bicyclists. It's my secret route downtown from the east side. What's really needed is a sign directing bicyclists to slow, to yield and be courteous to pedestrians, rather than banning bike riding on the bridge. Better still, widening the bridge would be ideal. This route and the rest of the levee system will gain even more value for bike commuters when the B40 Creek Bridge is added and the new rail trail feeds bicyclists onto the levees at the SLzo river mouth area.

    I don't agree with the other comment to remove "door zone bike lanes." A mediocre bike lane is better than none at all; at least it notifies drivers that bikes have a right to be there. If a better option is implemented then fine, but the other commenter is not suggesting what that would be.

    At the very least, the bike lane approaching this intersection should be striped instead of solid to indicate that cyclists may leave the bike lane to get better sight lines on the intersection.

    Paving King Street would be the best bicycle improvement that could be made to King Street.

    The sensor for eastbound traffic does not detect cyclists. Perhaps traffic cameras should be added here instead of the "walk button" for cyclists that can't be reached from the through traffic lane.

    Do not add doorzone bike lanes to River Street. It's bad enough that many motorists do not understand why cyclists are hugging the parked cars. Many motorists do not understand why cyclists are not in the bike lane that is too dangerous to use.

    Please remove the "bike lane to no where" The bike lane directs cyclists into a concrete barrier.

    "Bikes may use full lane" sign would be useful for communication that the cycletrack here is optional for cyclists.

    The door zone bike lanes in the should be removed. Many motorists do not understand why cyclists are not in the bike lane that is too dangerous to use.

    The "bike lane" sign should be removed since this facility is a cycletrack and not a Class II bike lane. Many motorists do not understand that cycletracks are not mandatory facilities for cyclists under the California Vehicle Code.

    The door zone bike lanes in the northboud direction should be removed. Many motorists do not understand why cyclists are not in the bike lane that is too dangerous to use.

    The lanes in this particular spot are only 8 feet wide which is 3 feet less than the already inadequate minimum mandated by Caltrans. https://www.flickr.com/photos/nocklebeast/16407122256/in/album-72157603159493225/
