  • Pleasant St & Summer St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 2

    Following up on multiple open requests for this intersection, because it really feels unsafe for both pedestrians and drivers.

    The walk light does not work. I tried pressing the button this morning, hoping to try and cross the street more safely during rush hour, and it never came on.

    The cross walk painting is almost completely gone on all three street crossings of this intersection - can it be prioritizing to re-paint these so both vehicle drivers and pedestrians can see them? Could also consider adding the bright yellow curb cuts for added visibility.

    This is always a difficult intersection, but especially during high traffic rush hour times. Also very concerning during school drop off, as there was no crossing guard to help get kids across a dangerous intersection safely, and again there is no working walk light. Thank you so much.

    Please do a better job of notifying residents of DAILY construction work that will impact access to their property. Our neighborhood received a flyer last week that notified us of upcoming water main work, but that flyer listed no dates.

    Yesterday, several people in our neighborhood were caught off guard by work being done that blocked our street, and blocked several driveways. If we had been notified in advance, residents could have parked on the street so they would not be stuck in their driveways while the work was being done.

    There is not enough space in this neighborhood for everyone to park on the street all of the time. Simply giving us very broad notice of work being done, with no specific dates, is useless. We cannot ALL park on the street indefinitely until the project is completed.

    Many residents are extremely concerned about the poor communication shown so far in the early stages of this project, and what we can expect as the project moves forward. Are we going to suddenly discover that we cannot leave our driveways again? Are we going to suddenly find ourselves with no water, with no advance notice?

    This poor communication is inexcusable, and shows a lack of concern for the impact that this project has on residents. We can't work with you if you won't tell us what to expect, and when to expect it.

    A previous SeeClickFix report on this same concern was never addressed; more poor communication, and keeping the residents in the dark.

    Please do better for the tax paying residents in this community. We know these water main improvements need to be made, but we also need to be able to live our lives during the project.

    I hope this report actually receives a reply, instead of more silence.

  • 33-35 Bainbridge Street Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 5
    The center line on lower Bainbridge St. was removed and repainted at 1:30 AM on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2020. Firstly, that was absolutely ridiculous to even occur in the first place and I, among other residents, "thank you" for waking us up for that. However, now there is another problem that was easily foreseeable. The new line was moved too far over and now chokes the street even more. Personally, I'd like to see how a firetruck or snowplow can stay within that restricted lane when they come down the street without potentially causing damage or possibly an accident. The original line was fine, if parking was the problem, how about putting up a sign first. Also now the newly paved street has a grooved line in the center, please fix.
  • 1–15 Willow St Malden MA 02148, United States - Malden Ward 7
    Harvard Street, willow, Henry, ferry and many other streets were completely hacked apart during national grids work. I live in this neighborhood and haven’t seen any work crews here in weeks. Tufts paving was overseeing the asphalt work. Get them. To fix these hack patch jobs. It’s pathetic that a city clerk allows those type of work to pass even as temp work. It shouldn’t take 6 months for NG to come back to finish and get a proper patch done. I work construction in Boston and these patches are complete hack! Let’s hold some people accountable instead of passing the buck all the time. Thank you stay safe
  • 34 Stearns Street Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 7
    Whoever planned the new sidewalk did not consider the neighborhood. There is limited parking on Holyoke Street and the new sidewalk reduced the number of parking spots on the street (corner of Stearns St and Holyoke St). A car is always parked at the very corner of the street. People even reserve it after a snow storm. Before the new sidewalk residents did not park at the very corner so people can cross Holyoke Street. Now the corner is always blocked. The sidewalk is always hidden, making a previously safe corner to cross to a dangerous corner. Please don’t punish the residents by issuing them tickets because the city poorly planned out the new sidewalk. Please move the sidewalk to the appropriate location. The sidewalk needs to be at the corner not a full car spot away.

    Ever since the road was fixed this has been happening
  • Ferry St & Boylston St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 7
    This National Grid project that has turned Ferry Street into an outright DISASTER AREA, once completed SHOULD INCLUDE (just as our neighbors in Everett) FULL REPAVEMENT OF THE ENTIRE DISRUPTED ROADWAY! How can Malden allow National Grid to leave the area and get away with only patching??! THIS IS ABSOLUTELY ABSURD! Everett has repaved from Glendale Square right up to the Malden line! MALDEN residents DESERVE THE SAME! Someone from the city should make sure National Grid does not just tear up our roadway for their benefit, just patch and leave! As a long time Malden taxpayer I find this TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE! WE DESERVE BETTER! SOMEONE NEEDS TO TAKE A STAND AND SPEAK UP!

    2–40 Claremont St Malden MA 02148, United States - Malden Ward 8
    I woke up today to a policeman blocking the street just outside my driveway and was told that road repairs are being done at Salem / Claremont st AGAIN, could someone please tell me why as a home owner on this street I did not get a call, letter, email or text about this construction and traffic diversion??? This is becoming completely unacceptable! It is 2022, you can easily inform a neighborhood of upcoming work in the area
  • 473–499 Cross St Malden MA 02148, Verenigde Staten - Malden Ward 7
    Please install No Turn On Red signs for both directions of Bryant Street. There are now bike two stage turn boxes in front of those approaches, therefore to comply with the MUTCD, no turn on red (R10-11) signs are required to be installed Thank you
  • 49 Playstead Road Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 5
    Hello, there is a porta potty in front of my house because of the construction going on which I’ve been dealing with for a few weeks but now the construction has moved further down and I’d like the potty moved. Aside from the smell and the flies that greet me when I get home, cars also park in front of it, making it challenging for me to pull into my driveway. Can you please have this moved since the workers are done on this part of our street? It’d be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    Exchange street parking has become a hazard
  • 137 Lebanon Street Malden, Massachusetts, 02148 - Malden Ward 6

    City/Road construction workers came, removed our platform side fence-supports by leaving a large gap, until then our fence was in:
    • good condition,
    • neat with out any tire marks or scratches or splashes,
    • well supported with gravel mixed concreate along the fence line and
    • compacted with topped tar layer with gravel mixture, along the fence line on the platform side , so that area:
    ○ will not erode,
    ○ will avoid any rat holes and
    ○ to avoid any plant growths
    ○ to avoid tripping while walking etc.,

    Now our fence is left in:
    • poor condition, not secured to previous height at its ground level
    • various damages along the roadside fence
    • splashed spots with concreate/cement
    • multiple stains, unable to clean by scrubbing and/or by power wash etc.,
    • with less support, uneven soil spread below the previous level and look unfinished properly
    • gap between the platform and the fence, which was more and deep
    • filled the gap with extremely loose sand which is/can erode/washaway extremely easily and will cause constant maintenance issues including plant growth, rat holes, dog digs/trash, water stagnant etc.,
    • when a heavy rain happens, there is also the danger of those soil washing out and making our fence ever less stable
    • inner side gravel filling were drained out, gapped-out and the fence seem to move/shake on heavy wind

    Kindly address these by at least:
    • removing the deep filled loose sand,
    • lay up with the proper concrete filling on those deep gap right from the fence to the earlier height at least with needed tampering, without leaving any gap what-so-ever near the fence (along the platform side), as it was before(as in the picture) please.

    Thanks for understanding and help with this matter asap.
