Work is continuing on the Safer Intersection Project in Pleasant Hill, with several items slated for completion by March. The project, intended to improve bicycle and pedestrian safety around Pleasant Hill schools, has been in progress since fall 2023.

Areas being worked on recently include:

Speed Humps: speed humps have been installed at nearly all intersections. Those that remain will see installation after the stop sign and striping work is completed. Intersections still needing speed humps are Viking Dr at Odin Dr and Oak Park Blvd at Wendell Ln.

Stop Signs: installation of signage has been ongoing this week, and the related equipment is in the process of being installed as well. Once the latest rains have passed, crews will complete the installation process.

Striping: Striping is set to occur alongside the signage. Depending on the weather, the work is expected to be completed by mid-March.

They should add fixing the potholes to the top of the list. They are tearing up our vehicles.

Training drivers and pedestrians to pay attention to their surroundings adds far more value than signs and lights. Paying attention is also an excellent deterrent for crime. Yesterday’s news included an article covering on-line “outrage” over a jogger that was killed at a residential intersection in Berkeley. The vehicle came to a stop at a stop sign. The driver then went across and struck the jogger who seems to have been in or near the crosswalk on the far side. Had either the driver or jogger paid attention there would be no collision and both of the people involved likely would have long forgotten that or one or both of them needed to hold up for half a second so there would be no collision.
