Repave Thornhill Drive!
Thornhill Drive, a major artery and only egress used by thousands of Oakland residents has been neglected for many years. From Mountain Blvd to Snake, a distance of less 2 miles we counted over 350 potholes, some 4 inches or more deep, and too many fissures to count. It is now literally impossible to avoid driving into pot holes on route to or from Moraga Blvd and it is also not uncommon to observe vehicles swerving into the opposite lane to avoid them. There are documented reports of cyclists catching their tires in the these dangerous obstructions and suffering injuries. Our children also use this road to walk to Thornhill School and there are no sidewalks. Parents have complained about traffic entering the shoulders to avoid pot holes and nearly causing accidents. Thornhill is in terrible shape. It has not been repaved in 30 years! We petition the City of Oakland to take immediate action to repave the road.
