  • Essex St & Stetson Ave Town of Swampscott, MA, 01907, USA - Swampscott
    The walk light at Essex and Stetson has not worked in months.
  • The traffic light coming out of CVS Vinnan Square allows only 2 cars to exit. I was car 3 and ended up going through a light that turned red on me.
  • Essex St @ Stetson Ave Swampscott, MA 01907, USA - Swampscott

    After being fixed for all of one week, the crossing light at the corner of Stetson and Essex is *again* broken. Will it take a traffic fatality of an elderly person, kid on a bike, or mother pushing a stroller with her child to compel the town to implement a permanent fix that involves complete replacement of the light infrastructure? this is one of the busiest and most dangerous intersections in the town. how much time and money does it take to prioritize fixing this problem when there is precedent all over town to replace crossing lights - particularly on Humphrey Street and the wealthier sections of town. This is not a new problem!

    Please do not just forward this message to the "contractor that services Swampscott's traffic lights because clearly this cover for "not my problem". What person at the DPW is responsible and when will there be action taken?

    If Swampscott would like to continue shirking responsibility, please name contact information for a state or other agency who can better assist us.

    This issue was fixed for a few weeks but has reverted back again, along with the same nuisance effects for both drivers and residents. The light stays red half the time (30sec per minute) whereas normally it should only trigger red if there's cross traffic or pedestrians. At the busiest times of day it makes it harder for people to pull out of their driveways with the traffic backed up. Drivers who blare music from their cars who would normally pass right by, instead sit at the intersection for a full 30 sec. Late in the evening large semi-trucks come screeching to a halt, surprised by the light change. Ambulances normally stay silent in the wee hours, are obligated to turn on the siren to because the light is changing and they must blow through safely. It would be a shame if any these things needlessly contributes to an accident there.
  • Burpee Rd & Essex St Swampscott, MA, 01907, USA - Swampscott
    The green light for the side (short) pole in the southwest-bound lane is out.
  • 492–498 Vantage Terr Swampscott MA 01907, United States - Swampscott
    Light coming from the plaza is extremely short, can only get a couple cars through at a time. Traffic is backing way up into the plaza.
  • 434-438 Paradise Rd Town of Swampscott, MA, 01907, USA - Swampscott
    Both of the lights coming out of the CVS plaza, and the Chipotle plaza are very short. It took me 5 traffic lights to get out of the Chipotle side (to go straight).
    Why is there a left turn arrow if it's never green... goes directly to blinking yellow. It would be more convenient to let the cvs plaza exit for some time, then the Chipotle plaza, then back to paradise road. Today sitting in traffic there was no one going through the lights at paradise, but a good size line coming out of cvs and Chipotle plazas. I think this needs to be looked into.

  • 135 Burrill St Swampscott MA 01907, United States - Swampscott
    Crosswalk time is too short. h

    This pedestrian cross light has been out for months.
  • Atlantic Ave & Humphrey St Swampscott, MA, 01907, USA - Swampscott
    I was crossing the street and the car did not stop until last minute. The driver apologized and said he could not see the light (which had changed) because it was covered by trees. I agreed the leaves block I the light on the right side of the street when you’re driving towards Swampscott from Marblehead.
  • 144 Stetson Ave Swampscott MA 01907, United States - Swampscott
    The light across the high school is not working. It's a very dangerous road and many kids have to cross it multiple times per day
