671 Orange Street New Haven, Connecticut
Dear New Haven Transportation, Public Works, and Public Safety,
The Orange street bike lane north and southbound from Trumbull St. to Willow St. is a death trap. I made the mistake of trying to commute to work on bike and had to swerve potholes and debris the entire time while worrying about traffic, buses, and poorly parked cars. This was the most unsafe ride I have ever had, anywhere - and this was supposed to be the major north/south biking artery of East Rock.
At one point, I had to try and jump a pothole and my rear tire didn't make it causing a flat tire and slightly bent rim. I am mad about my expensive commuter bike, but honestly, mostly just relieved I didn't tumble into traffic or hit my face. Some of these pot holes are more than 6 inches deep. A pothole for a car is an inconvenience with the possibility of tire/rim damage; a pothole on a bike however is a major safety concern- people have been killed like that.
All roads in East Rock are in horrible shape coming out of a long winter, understandably it will take some time to address this issue everywhere. But please, please, fix the bike lanes first.
If you are looking to commute on bike, strongly consider taking a bus or walking until roads are improved. New Haven City officials, please try riding a bike in one of these bike lanes and reporting back.
I will follow up later with photos
615 Orange St New Haven, CTNica's supply trucks are regularly blocking Bishop Street. They either park across a lane of traffic (see picture - this truck is parked!) or they park so close to the corner that it is nearly impossible to pull out onto Orange st. without endangering yourself.· Reported by Concerned East Rock Citizen · Flag Flagged
Orange St And Pearl St New Haven, CT
Unless you step out into the crosswalk, and risk getting run over, the vast majority of drivers don't yield to the pedestrians trying to cross the street at this intersection. I've seen it happen in front of the police who've done nothing about it. Once, in front of the police, I had to step out in the street and put up my hands to help a woman with her young child cross the street while at least two drivers laid on their horns.
Can we please get an officer who will do their job and actually stop drivers and give them tickets for this behavior? It is getting dangerous and I really don't want to see anybody get hit.
All Of East Rock New Haven, CTThere are too many streets in East Rock where the odd sides were NEVER PLOWED and a number of streets, especially Lawrence, is essentially a one-way road due to cars parking with the ice/snow and two cars not being able to fit through the street at the same time. Why did the city just skip East Rock?· Reported by Anonymous · Flag Flagged
Lawrence Street And State Street New Haven, CTA number of folks have noted traffic safety concerns at this location. At the same time folks have really come to enjoy the pocket park. A kind neighbor has created the following suggestion for how to improve both situations. See attached for his suggestion as well as some temporary measures to pilot the idea.· Reported by Test · Flag Flagged

"Sharp has instructed his officers to take your visible valuables from your car before the bad guys do, making use of a search warrant exception that allows them to do it."
This is outrageous. How about the police concentrate on catching the criminals breaking in to cars? Violating our right to privacy, making us go through an ordeal in order to get our own property back, chastising us like children, and potentially selling our illegaly confiscated property for profit? Really?· Reported by NewHavenResident · Flag Flagged
815 State Street New Haven, CTThe trees along the I-91 corridor and State Street were cut down by the DOT. Are they putting up a much needed SOUND BARRIER? If not, the trees are the only thing blocking the view of traffic and increasing traffic/truck noise and need to be replaced. Quality of life will be impaired...SOUND BARRIER for UPPER STATE STREET!!!· Reported by Deanna Nickel · Flag Flagged
