1 City Hall Ansonia, CTStudying the waste capacities closer and pre determining future population strains from both Derby & Ansonia on the pending Ansonia treatment system raises two beneficial questions.
1) How does one document limitations as an agreement with Ansonia & Derby knowing the designed system has a max capacity and DEP compliance usage? The preceding question concerns a possible moratorium on develops & increased populations in both municipalities where both WPCA boards monitor development activity as to not strain the modern system.
2) Will both municipalities be allowed to benefit from the pending ENERGY ASSETS derived from the Greenpoint Energy waste sludge system designed into the waste system infrastructure? This becomes an attractive pitch from Ansonia’s concept to deploy this joint operation dealing with multiple municipality use.
These are critical terms to keep RED flags from rising causing a Sh*t flinging contests between two municipalities.
WARNING- Tabled personal and public benefit agendas from both municipalities need to be aligned and be presented wide open from the very start of the concept.· Reported by Derby & Ansonia Resident · Flag Flagged
Jackson & Westfield Ansonia, CTThe people who live here are watching people run the stop signs constantly. We even watch people scream past the buses that have signals on and stop sign out! For whatever reason, people just don't care to stop for the stop signs. If it's a commercial vehicle I call the company and let them know. I honestly do not know how to fix this problem. It is a serious problem.· Reported by Anonymous · Flag Flagged
Ells St/Granite Terr Ansonia, CT2 Issues here.
First - people constantly blow through the 1 stop sign here when making the left onto Ells from Granite. There are children that play as well as traffic with no other stop sign in either direction.
Second issue is no other stop sign at this 3 way intersection, cars making the left do not realize the traffic approaching will not stop.
Schumacher Drive Ansonia, CTMost folks don't stop at the stop signs and drive on this short road like it's a raceway! I've complained to police nothing happens. Put a speed trap in or better yet, close the road where it meets Pulaski Hi-way.
138 158 Prindle Ave Ansonia, CT 06401, USAAt the intersection of Prindle Avenue and Ford Street, there are stop signs on Ford and on northbound Prindle. There is no stop sign on southbound Prindle, and drivers coming northbound or from Ford apparently assume there is and frequently cut in front of southbound cars. Either a stop sign is needed on southbound Prindle, or warning signs are needed at the existing stop signs telling drivers that the oncoming traffic does not stop.· Reported by koalabelle · Flag Flagged
156-186 Division Street Ansonia, Connecticut
I was able to take a PERFECT photo Friday morning to depict the nightmare Derby (and perhaps Ansonia) has created by not re-configuring the intersection of Wakelee and Division before the new Route 8 on ramp opened.
I’ve heard that Griffin wouldn’t sell land needed (which should have then been taken by eminent domain) but it will just be a matter of time, especially this winter, before a vehicle is struck and someone seriously hurt or killed because of this lack of foresight.
Here we have it. I am at the stop sign on Division. I have FIVE cars behind me. You can see two of the three cars waiting for their turn at the top sign to my right. There are cars coming from my left also AND to top off the nightmare I can’t move forward because the tiny cue between my stop sign and the signal is not large enough to fit the necessary number of vehicles.
So, I get to back up Division Street until there is space for me to move through the intersection unless I wish to sit in the middle of it risking an almost certain accident.
This mess occurs mostly in the morning and evening rush hours periods.
We can spend lots of money laying brick crosswalks and I guess on upcoming legal fees when someone is hit because these cities dropped the ball but not to take necessary land and pay to re-design this intersection.
I trust people are already working on a solution…
Hull St Ansonia, CTHull st seems to be a forgotten street in Ansonia. First off Hull St near the rt 8 overpass has seem to become the second transfer station in the town because it is littered with garbage and glass that never seems to get cleaned up, combine that with the amount of weeds and brush that are overgrowing into the street and the lack of no sidewalks it's impossible to actually walk on the street without being in the middle of traffic. Also multiple curbs have been ripped up by plows the lengths of houses and have never been replaced. Storm drains are severely sinking into the ground collecting water around them allowing for pour drainage. Cars continually run the stop signs through the intersection at Hull/silver hill at 25 mph plus and never is there any sort of police patrol in the neighborhood even with the fact that there have been car/home break in's. For the cost of living in Ansonia with one of the highest mill rates you would expect more. No wonder people wanna move out and the value of properties continues to decline.
Root Ave Ansonia, ConnecticutCorner store on Root Ave the way customers park blocking the road and speeding down Root Ave. The stop sign on the bottom of Hill & Root people don't stop an accident is going to happen, & last thing the drug dealing needs to stop.
382 Main Street Ansonia, Connecticut
I saw this on Friday and know this signal on Main has been discussed here before due to it's horrid timing and lack of reason to exist.
I see in this photo it is either being repaired/reprogrammed or... long shot, removed. I realize it's a state road but the City of Ansonia has been aware of this signal's issues and has had plenty of time to work with the state.
If you are traveling down main from Target to Spector Furniture, this signal turns red the moment the one at Big Y turns green stopping traffic that was just at a red light AGAIN a few hundred feet later.
It also serves no purpose as the road next to Spector is one-way and has been forever and the exit to Bank of America is one way. Cars exiting BofA have a clear view exiting and no traffic can also turn left or right onto the street next to Spector. This signal just stops Main Street traffic for no known reason as there is signal just before and after it at intersections where one is needed.
