  • 953 North Ave Burlington, VT, 05408, USA - Burlington Electric
    Restrict pkg to one side of street 100 ft from stop sign.
  • 67 Cherry St Burlington VT 05401, United States - Burlington Electric
    Good start with cones for buses After two years, why have the metered spaces, east and west of bhs entrance NOT been converted to handicapped parking? Instead what happens is that parents park and pick up their abled body child See 3rd photo There are no places for parents or school vans to pick up children with handicaps
  • Sky Dr & Sunset Dr Burlington, VT, 05408, USA - Burlington Electric
    A speed hump is desperately needed on Sunset Dr. In Burlington between Venus and Sky, people drive way too fast and a few wild animals and pets have been hurt or killed. Please help the situation, thank you so much.
  • 472 S Union St Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric

    I'm reaching out because some neighbors and I along S Union near the Shelburne St rotary have noticed a number of vehicles traveling at a relatively high speed in the area (reaching around 40+mph) and often blowing through the stop sign at the intersection of S Union & Howard. It's hard to tell if this is a consequence of the new road structure with the rotary, and while there is definitely one or two primary bad actors, the issue of speed seems to be an across-the-board increase.

    I know that in the past, our street had monitoring tubes - so this probably isn't fully new information. I was wondering if DPW would be able to sponsor the use of one or two modular/deployable rubber speed humps to manage speed coming into this stretch of the road, and just before the stop sign as a test or placeholder for a more permanent road safety improvement.

  • Pearl St & S Union St Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    There is currently no LPI (leading pedestrian interval) for east/west crossings on pearl, across Union... almost all other intersections along this stretch of Pearl, with high pedestrian volumes, DO have LPIs. Not sure why this intersection is any different (unless the signal timing is currently off / incorrect)
  • 208-244 Shelburne Rd Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    This has been and continues to be a place where people need to cross Shelburne Street, and since the temporary crosswalk at Adams was taken out, there's now no way to cross safely for a full half mile between the crosswalk at the new roundabout and the one at Prospect Parkway. People cross the road with no crosswalk quite often in this stretch — not only to get to the Adams and Alfred Street northbound and Hoover and Birchcliff southbound bus stops, but also just to get to where they're going on foot. It seems ludicrous to expect that people will walk half a mile out of their way to use one of the crosswalks, and, in fact, people don't. There should be at least one or two additional crosswalks on this stretch to accommodate foot traffic. A lot of people live, work and walk in this area and the pedestrian infrastructure is basically nonexistent. Why not make it easier to be a pedestrian on this part of Shelburne Street, maybe slow traffic going into the roundabout as a bonus, and give people a safe place to cross in the places where they're going to cross anyway?
  • East Ave South Burlington, VT, 05403, USA - Burlington Electric
    I am continuously being honked at every day watch people run this red arrow traffic signal. It is illegal to go Right on a Red Arrow, and keep being honked at, given the middle finger, and sped by aggressivley when I do not go right on red here. I believe that a "No Right on Red Arrow" sign of some sort would make this intersection feel safer!
  • North Ave & Village Grn Burlington, VT, 05408, USA - Burlington Electric
    North Ave at Village Green really needs a "Box" or some sort of additional markings to keep NB cued vehicles from blocking the intersection. There is already a sign, but it is almost universally ignored. The red light phase is often the best opportunity to exit the neighborhood southbound, but inevitably the NB cue blocks that exit.

  • 1 Borestone Ln Burlington VT 05408, United States - Burlington Electric
    Please install a "no parking here to corner" sign at this location, to prevent cars from blocking the fire hydrant.
  • 117 River'S Edge Dr Burlington VT 05408, United States - Burlington Electric
    Please install a "no parking here to corner" sign in this location, to prevent cars from blocking the fire hydrant.
  • 457 S Willard St Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    Please consider making the top space on Howard Street, the space between our garage and South Willard, a No Parking spot. Yesterday alone there were two accidents there, and one left a car with fuel leaking, requiring the Fire Department. Cars park there, and cars (and buses and trucks) coming around the corner from South Willard don’t see them in time. I’m afraid we may have a really nasty accident.
  • Vt-127 Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric

    I live at the corner of park street and Manhattan Ave, at the traffic light on the south end of route 127 and I have lived here for 6 years. My bedroom window and my child’s bedroom window faces this intersection as does those of 4 of my neighbors.

    Since the pandemic, there has been a significant increase in the number of noisy vehicles (motorbikes, cars with noisy exhaust systems) that take middle of the night joyrides at high speeds from the intersection. It happens every night if not several times per night and ear plugs and a noise machine have not improved my sleep.

    I know that some places have road technology in speed tables where a speed-activated device will correct this issue. Could the city explore this or other solutions to restore basic quality of life to the residents in this section of the old north end?

    We are in a strange situation where a neighborhood directly abuts a highway and I wonder if there are standards for a speed buffer in these cases. Such as not allowing motorists to accelerate to highway speeds until they are a certain distance from a residential street (Manhattan Ave).
