#RepaveTelegraph Update: All layers of asphalt have been on installed on Telegraph Ave. Last week, the contractor installed temporary cat tracking to mark the exact locations for permanent striping (including bus boarding island, bike lanes, and pedestrian refuges) for Telegraph Ave from 36th St to 51st St. City staff are currently reviewing the temporary cat tracking. Once the City approves the work, the contractor will return to install the permanent striping, starting sometime the week of July 20th. Starting July 13th, on Telegraph between 20th and 29th (Koreatown/Northgate District), the subcontractor is installing crosswalks and laying out the exact locations for the new K-71 bollards (larger and studier bollards than were previously installed).

#SupportBlackOwnedBusiness One of the first shops to open in #TemescalAlley was Hasain Rasheed Photography / The Shot Shop in 2009! Hasain has been a photographer for over 20 years, getting his start in sports and concert photography. Now his photography spans many genres, including portraits, commercial work, editorial work, and more. ⁠

The Shot Shop specializes in natural light Tintype portraits. Using natural light Hasain works carefully to produce images that are handcrafted, one of a kind pieces of art. The heart of this 170 year old process involves pouring chemicals onto a plate in order to make it sensitive to light, which turns it into a piece of what we now call film. The entire procedure is dependent on factors including temperature, the behavior of chemicals that day, and how a plate is poured. ⁠

Their online store is still under construction but you can purchase a gift card which can be used towards photography sessions, tintype sessions, future online shopping, and more. They are also now scheduling both regular photography sessions and tin types beginning July 1. Visit www.shotshopoakland.com for more info! #supportblackownedbusiness

#ThrowbackThursday: In 2012, Oakland North wrote an excellent profile on Jim Steele, owner of Steele’s Discount Scuba! Steele’s first opened in 1939 as a sporting goods store on College Avenue when Steele’s father owned it, and became a dive shop when it moved to its current location in 1958 🌊 Read the full article at: tinyurl.com/steelesdiscount⁠

Jim Steele pretty much grew up in the dive shop he currently owns. He still spends most of his time either in the shop, or doing something related to diving, like guiding a class underwater to see the kelp forests and sea life in the Monterey Bay.

Repave Update on Phase 2 of 3: The Final 2" top coat of asphalt is being installed on Telegraph this week! They are currently working on the Eastern side of Telegraph on the outside lanes, starting from 37th St and working northbound. Once the reach 51st St, they will then turn around, and apply the top coat to the Western outside lanes, working from 51st St South bound to 37th. And finally, they'll finish with the top coat of asphalt installation on the center lanes. This will complete Phase 2⁠

You'll notice that temporary lane markers are being installed on the street (delineating the current lanes, not the lanes for the finalized street design).⁠

After Phase 2 (asphalt installation), the bus boarding islands will be installed, and then Phase 3 (the final phase!!): finalized striping, bike lanes, bollards and curb colors will be put in place.⁠

General information

In 2004, the area’s property owners voted overwhelmingly to assess themselves an annual fee that goes towards maintaining and improving the streetscape, supporting businesses, and marketing Telegraph Avenue starting from 40th to 66th Street, including small portions of Shattuck Ave, 51st , and Claremont. We encourage property owners, merchants and residents to join our committees: Design, Economic Development, Promotion, & Security, dedicated to the vibrancy of Temescal and upper Telegraph. Ideas developed in these committees become the action plans for the Board of Directors.
