900-910 State Street New Haven, Connecticut
There is a large tree limb snapped and hanging precariously in front of 900-910 State Street in New Haven. The limb will eventually fall and could cause significant damage or injury. Please remove limb. Thanks!
330 Whitney Avenue New Haven, ConnecticutThis has become a chronic issue during peak traffic times, and endangers pedestrians. Either enforcement or education (signs, perhaps?) is needed, as it seems most cyclists passing through this intersection are not even aware that red lights apply to them.· Signalé par Guest · Marquer Flagged

I ride this route often and feel that a bike route from Clinton Avenue, across Lombard and Humphrey to Orange, continues to be sorely needed.
I feel that this issue should remain open until a route that all persons -- age 8 to 80 -- feel comfortable riding their bikes on. Although sharrows are a minor improvement over nothing, adding sharrows to the road simply does not do that.
65 people previously voted on this issue: "Bike lane needed from Clinton Avenue to Orange Street," but that issue is being closed because sharrows have been installed. http://www.seeclickfix.com/issues/8658-bike-lane-needed-from-clinton-avenue-to-orange-street
Sharrows are ineffective at increasing cycling rates unless speeds are reduced to 20MPH.
Portland, OR, and New York City, NY, are currently doing this along hundreds of miles of their residential streets.
Studies show that very few people will feel comfortable bicycling on roads unless speeds are strictly capped at 20MPH -- no matter what kind of paint you have on the road.
Achieving these average speeds along bike routes can be done through various traffic calming and traffic engineering methods. Berkeley has pioneered this decades ago this with its "bicycle boulevards," and many cities have since followed.
It is best to call them "slow streets", since they have a tremendous benefit for pedestrians and property owners as well.
The sharrows here should be replaced with street engineering that meets the standards of the NACTO -- whether bike lanes, buffered bike lanes, traffic calmed boulevards, or some other feature: http://nacto.org/cities-for-cycling/design-guide/ .
Thanks! Thanked!State St And Edwards St New Haven, ConnecticutPedestrian crossing signal doesn't work properly; when the crossing button is pushed the traffic signals will turn red, but the pedestrian signal never changes to walk--it stays red.
Whitney Ave At Edwards St New Haven, ConnecticutAt least some of the time, the traffic signal at Whitney Ave and Edwards Street does not provide the exclusive pedestrian phase on every cycle. Pedestrians must wait two full cycles of Whitney traffic and Edwards traffic before being able to cross. The vehicle traffic on Whitney doesn't require this; the only backups I see are for downhill traffic on Edwards. Please program the signals to offer a pedestrian crossing phase during every cycle. Thank you!· Signalé par NHV_Resident · Marquer Flagged
Orange And Humphrey New Haven, ConnecticutWhen you press the button for the pedestrian signal, it does not trigger a walk cycle until at least two full traffic cycles have gone, which is a long time. The walk cycle should appear more quickly, at least after the completion of the current cycle and the next cycle (rather than waiting two full cycles).
249 Humphrey Street New Haven, ConnecticutExcessive wait time of several minutes for cars waiting for green light on Humphrey St. East-bound. So long that cars were waiting over 2 minutes and then running light.
