    Recent signal timing change is causing gridlock. Left turn from Comm on to Lex gets backed up due to red light at Wolcott. Blocks westbound traffic on Comm causing unnecessary backups. Please study and address.

  • Washinton St Newton Corner, Massachusetts - Newton

    Some time ago you indicated that you would be addressing the traffic congestion at Newton Corner. Since I traverse this intersection multiple times a day I know firsthand that, if anything, the problem is growing more acute; yet it has one very simple solution. It’s not a complete solution but it would lessen the traffic jam around the hotel and its concomitant environmental issue of vehicular pollution.

    The solution is to time the lights just before entering I-90 EB. Currently those lights are red 90% of the time that the preceding lights are green. This can’t be brain surgery-level work requiring grant money; just send your smartest traffic engineering to tinker for an hour and watch the improved traffic flow and the smiles on drivers’ faces!

  • 160 Boylston Street Newton, Massachusetts - Newton
    Traffic Signal at 9E exit onto Hammond Pond parkway has issues with its timer. On several occasions, we have had to wait for more than 5-10mins for the lights to trip, even though there is no traffic on Hammond pond parkway.

  • 1964 Washington Street Newton, Massachusetts - Newton
    The traffic light on Washington Street and the entrance into Newton Wellesley Hospital - the green arrow which allows traffic on Washington Street to turn left into the hospital property is not functioning. It is a short arrow to begin with allowing on ly a few cars to turn and now not having an arrow at all the time it takes to wait to get into the hosptal is very long.
