  • Pedestrian Overpass Highland Ave Salem MA 01970, United States - City of Salem
    Clogged solid after every rain, huge puddles. Preventive maintenance goes a long way. Ample notice before winter sets in and a slip and fall accident occurs
  • 61 Dearborn Street Salem, Massachusetts, 01970 - City of Salem
    there seems to be a problem with the grading of the road to the right of the storm drain next to my driveway which limits the drainage and creates a backup of water. The grading is such that a few leaves can block the passage of water. This is real issue esp during winter.
  • Central St & Front St Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    I sweep along the curb on Central Street (near the intersection with Front & Lafayette Streets) so that leaves do not wash down the basin. Unfortunately, the basin accumulates leaves between the days I sweep. At some point prior to Winter, the leaves in the basin should be cleaned out. I also occasionally sweep the curb in front of 20 Central Street. The basin there could use a clean out too.
  • North St & Symonds St Salem, Massachusetts, 01970 - City of Salem
    Catch basin blocked by leaves, rocks, and debris.
  • 1-7 Mooney Ave Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem

    I am posting these photos of Mooney Avenue in an effort to get the attention it deserves. There has been very little work on the street in over 30 years and is in tough shape. Many, many potholes, cracks and a gooey tar pit at the top of the street. It needs new pavement as the patch jobs that have been done don’t even last a year. Contacted the city many times only to be told that I’m wasting their time. Have been told a few times that I would be called back or someone would visit the street but six months later very little has been done. I am hoping by posting some photos that I will not be treated just as a complainer and maybe we could be put on a list for some improvements.

    Huge potholes and undermined water shut off. X marks gooey tar patch, its so gooey that just walking on it causes imprints, it’s a mess all summer and will get much worse as temps climb. The X was made by me with a stick to show how soft the material is. Hydrant is buried up to it‘s armpits. Good luck dressing it in a timely fashion with a house on fire. Puddles last all week as there is no storm drains on the street

  • 20 Nichols Street Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    My neighbor at 22 Nichols St. Installed a sump pump I assume and the discharge pipe runs from inside the house to the edge of the sidewalk so whatever discharge water comes out across the sidewalk then down the gutter on the street. This has caused a unsafe ice buildup across my driveway and my neighbors driveway at 18 Nichols St. Is there regulations about sump pump discharge running down a city street just because of this happening? Please help it has created a unsafe situation let alone possible contaminated water running down the street. I have lived here 27 years and have never encountered this problem before

  • Mooney Ave Salem, Massachusetts, 01970 - City of Salem
    Water doesn't drain well because there are no catch basins on the street.
  • 39 Boardman St Salem MA 01970, United States - City of Salem
    Catch basin at the corner of Webb & Boardman is deteriorating and a pothole is opening in the path of eastbound traffic on Webb
  • 1-99 Emerald Ave Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    I know my neighbor at 4 Emerald has reached out. I’m at 6 Emerald and have reach out to our ward councilor who said to contact the engineer Dave who is no longer there. The water issue is up in front of my home where the water pool as street is flat. I believe a catch basin needs to be installed further up and not in front of 5 Emerald where i noticed marking.

    Broken sewer grate, hole is big enough for a child's leg to go straight in
  • 22 Shillaber St Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem

    ***Is this still in the works of being added/resolved?***

    Is it possible to put a solar powered speed limit sign on Shillaber St. near the Burke St. intersection?

    It is a narrow street and it is poorly lit.

    There are individuals driving 40mph plus, with a near head on collision accident occurring very frequently. This is near home owners vehicles between Shillaber and Burke Street and at the very ends of Shillaber St. Also, this makes walking with small children or pets a hazard. Some areas between Shillaber and Burke St. have little to no sidewalks. Making it that more dangerous with the high speeds and poor lighting.
