  • Insufficient lightingОткрыта
    564 Hammond Street Brookline, Massachusetts - Newton
    There is an insufficient amount of lighting on Hammond Street between the Chestnut Hill train stop and Route 9. This poses a problem when it rains, as the sidewalk is uneven and full of holes at places on both sides of the street, and this problem is exacerbated in the winter when ice and heavy snow make the sidewalks even more dangerous to walk on in the dark. I have seen people slip at night because they couldn't see the sidewalk properly. Most importantly, as a young woman, I feel in danger walking home alone on this street in the dark, because I have been approached by strange men who I can barely see, and I have felt like I was being followed a few times. I propose that at least 3 more streetlights be added to this section of Hammond Street.

  • OtherПризнана
    23 Elmwood St Newton Ma 02458 United States - Newton
    View of oncoming traffic is obstructed by shrubs. Prior pruning effort did not improve visibility enough. Please trim further.
  • Crosswalk RequestПризнана
    276 Church St Newton, MA 02458, United States, Newton, Massachusetts - Newton
    There is currently no crosswalk between the West Suburban YMCA and the fire department/opposite side of the street. The road is extra wide and has both a hill and a turn so it's not always possible to see oncoming cars. This is a heavily foot trafficked area - I regularly see kids running this road to get to/from their after school programs at the Y. I personally have to run across this street each day and have had some close calls. I am requesting the addition of a crosswalk to at least alert cars that someone may be crossing.
  • 2033 Commonwealth Avenue Newton, Massachusetts - Newton
    Fence/barrier has been broken for at least a year (and has been reported to 311 before). Please advise on status for repairing it.
  • Intersection Of Lexington And Commonwealth Newton, Massachusetts - Newton
    FREQUENTLY I find that the green turn light off of Commonwealth to Lexington is not timed appropriately. This results in a line of cars waiting to drive down Lexington lining up through the intersection because the Wolcott light is red. Frequently this causes unsafe driving and creative problem solving because cars are left out in the intersection as the Commonwealth light turns green and cars want to start driving.
  • Gas co road damageОткрыта

    Gas company opened road two years ago and never finished its final coat of asphalt.
  • 664 Walnut Street Newton, Massachusetts - Newton
    Altho' it wasn't so great before trying to make a left from Walnut Street north onto Comm Ave., now with the left lane ONLY being for left turns, all traffic has to flow in the right lane. This backs up terrible and causes problems for people dropping books off in the niche lane for the library..they can't move until that traffic clears. Last week I had to wait two light cycles to get out of the library parking lot to go east on Walnut St....too many cars, too many people pulling in/out of the library lane. At least with the left lane being used for straight as well as left, the traffic moved--you just had to watch for some idiot trying to pass you on the right instead of turning left.

    Pot holes not repaired. Road is terrible
  • Re-stripe roadОткрыта
    801 Beacon Street Newton, Massachusetts - Newton
    The eastbound lane is on this block of Beacon Street is very wide, probably wide enough as 2 lanes. I would like to see the eastbound lane on this block of Beacon Street become narrower. To make this happen, I want to see 3 lanes westbound on this block of Beacon Street. I want to see separate lanes for left turns only, thru only, and right turns only, heading westbound on this block of Beacon Street.
