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.
Blomerth St Malden, Massachusetts, 02148 - Malden Ward 3
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.
Sidewalk or Curb RepairAcknowledged31 Murray Hill Road Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 3The end of Murray Hill Road, where it meets W Border Road does not have a curb ramp. If you are walking down Murray Hill Road on the left side (odd side street), at the end where it meets West Border Road, there is no curb opening to cross W Border Rd to get to the Rez. It is difficult with a stroller and impossible with a wheel chair. After you cross West Border Rd, to get on the Fellsway East sidewalk, you almost have to walk in traffic of Fellsway East to enter the ramp. A ramp is definitely needed at the end of Murray Hill Rd, and an aligned ramp with the new ramp, would be nice (and safe).
33-35 Bainbridge Street Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 5The 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.
Beltran St & Glen Rock Ave Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 3When installing the new side walks by our house, about 6 inches were left exposed on our retaining wall, leaving the bottom of the wall footed by dirt. It looks like they tried to patch part of it, but it is not done well and I am worried the wall is now structurally undermined. Furthermore, the section with the yellow pad slopes towards the wall (not the street) so water pools there. Can someone please contact us to discuss how to fix?
Sidewalk or Curb RepairAcknowledged142 Wyoming Avenue Malden, Massachusetts, 02148 - Malden Ward 3While working on the curb they damaged and broke my walkway. They manage cover up with minor patch. However I can see the whole piece has broken out. Can we ask for a better repair that our private property has been damaged.
34 Stearns Street Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 7Whoever 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.
39 Garden Street Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 6Ever since the road was fixed this has been happening
Ferry St & Boylston St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 7This 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!

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
11-29 Bowdoin St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 7
Last year city of Malden hired a company to do the side walk on Bowdoin st, the work performed was subpar as best. The sidewalks aren't even and they cut in to the driveway of everyones property without permission of the homeowners. They removed perfect grass and soil from the grass beds at the sidewalk to perform the work and filed back with gravel that don't grow grass. This kind of work is not acceptable and it baffles me that no one from the city work department supervised and inspected the work upon completion.
OtherOpen2–40 Claremont St Malden MA 02148, United States - Malden Ward 8I 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
