  1. The West end of Berry St. was supposed to be open at the railroad crossing at 7th St. in Dec. 2007. People have been able to cross by bike & foot until now when the crossing has been fenced in. Now all the residents of Berry St. ( 1000 people? ), from 4th St. to 7th St. are trapped in a long cul-de sac.
    During Giants games it is unbearable trying to get out of here.
    Does anyone know how to get the crossing open. The railroad gates are up, the stoplights are installed, the lane lines are painted on the street, it’s ready to go except apparently the city bureaucracy.
    Will this be discussed at the meeting? Does anyone have any information? Thanks.

  2. Hi Jerry,

    This is the first I’ve heard of this issue. If the crossing is over the railroad, I might start by contacting Caltrain and maybe San Francisco County Transportation Authority secondarily to ask about who controls access for pedestrians and bicyclists. Keep us in the loop – RinconHill@gmail.com
