2-14 Church Street New Haven, ConnecticutOn Church St in the direction of the Green and right in front of the KofC Building, cars constantly pull over into the bike lane and stand, I guess in order to pick somebody up. This is a very busy road with lots of bike commuter traffic as well. When I swerve into traffic because of the car parked in the bike lane, several lanes of traffic are potentially impacted and I feel very vulnerable. I take this bike lane every day ~6, and I guess there is a car in the lane 50% of the time. This would be a great place to plan on ticketing violators!

State Street (From Union Station To Bradley Street) New Haven, Connecticut
My bike commute from Upper State to the train station is a bit rough in the morning.
It's pretty nerve-wracking to ride next to cars that are exiting/entering I-91. I'm worried that without being as defensive a rider as possible, I'm continually at risk.
I would love to see a separated bike lane down this street easily connecting East Rock to Union Station. I know it's difficult because state DOT is a pain in the butt on these issues, but it would mean so much to me!!
I think it would also add the following (please excuse the 'rant' format!):
1) It would make less 'gung-ho' riders more open to ride this route and not drive long distances where a train were an option.
2) There's plenty of physical land with the median to maintain 4 lanes of traffic, plus add two full bike lanes.
3) Consolidating bike lanes together on the downtown side has the capability of creating a hospitable plaza area and thus make the businesses on that side of state more attractive to customers (plus more active street life = better place to bike/live/be).
4) I feel like the land on the train tracks side has so much more potential than surface parking.
I will try to add some images of what I'm thinking later.
How do I set this project in motion? Thanks!!
Orange St And Center Street New Haven, ConnecticutThese are a hazard. The people on them are awful. They block traffic, they're slow, and they're rude. They don't move over. It's an embarrassment. If twelve young black men instead of twelve white drunk women were slowly riding their bikes through town blocking traffic you'd arrest them.
College Street And Wall Street New Haven, ConnecticutThere is no in-road pedestrian sign at this busy mid-block crosswalk. I have not seen the in-road pedestrian signs at other busy mid-block crosswalks elsewhere downtown. For the safety of everyone who uses these mid-block crossing, these should be replaced as soon as possible.
Thanks very much.
15 High Street New Haven, ConnecticutDue to construction impacts, the Northbound travel on High Street from George to Crown is closed to thru traffic. The Southbound travel is still open for local traffic. We will update this issue as timing and more information presents itself.
352 Orange St New Haven, CT 06511the right turn lane is almost always blocked on orange st. as people leave their cars to enter the housing authority. this blocks traffic turning onto grove, and creates a major hazard. is there a better solution?
