  • 26 City Hall Mall Medford, MA 02155, USA - Medford
    The lanes turning left from City Hall Mall onto Salem Street are fading and cars are turning into the incorrect lane. Cars in the leftmost lane on City Hall Mall swerve into the middle lane on Salem Street, when the lines (faded) indicate they should turn into the leftmost lane on Salem St. I have almost been run into many times in my car.
  • Mystic Valley Pkwy Medford 02155, United States - Medford
    The button on the north side to request the walk light does not work. I waited for several minutes to make sure it wasn’t a timing issue. The button on the south side of the road works, however.
  • 355 High St Medford, MA, 02155, USA - Medford
    Very loud constant beeping from newly installed pedestrian crossing
  • Salem Street @ Ashland Street Medford, Massachusetts - Medford
    The flashing traffic light for the pedestrian crossing on Salem Street and Ashland is useless and ineffective. Cars go down that street too fast and do not see the flashing lights. I was almost hit by a car trying to cross to go to the CVS. PUT A REGULAR TRAFFIC LIGHT!
  • 40 Cedar Rd N Medford 02155, United States - Medford
    The word stop used to be painted on the street but due to utility work is no longer there.
  • 16 Burbank Road Medford, MA, 02155, USA - Medford

    Last fall, Burbank Road was the happy recipient of traffic modifications that reduced the number of people speeding through in order to avoid stopping at the light at Winthrop and Lawrence. Sadly, the signs were removed (as planned) in late fall and we are now back to seeing cars whizzing by, being honked at by drivers while we back into our driveways, and taking our life in our hands as we walk across the street to talk to our neighbors. What would it take to make those changes permanent? The reason why the problem exists is that there is no right on red at Winthrop and Lawrence. The danger that a right on red there posed to pedestrians has now transferred to the corners at Burbank and Badger, where instead of having a well defined corner, there are two corners where cars sometimes act as if there are two lanes, or a lane and a turning lane, or a lane and racetrack with an out-of-the-blue car darting straight toward the nearest pedestrian.

    There are two possible solutions to this set of problems; one involves restricting the flow of cars onto Burbank, and the other involves establishing two lanes at the light at Winthrop and Lawrence and enabling cars to take a right on red. Which one would be best for the City?

  • 501-501 Winthrop St Medford, MA, 02155, USA - Medford
    The induction coil that triggers the light for traffic leaving the High School does not detect bikes. That means if you leave the high school on a bike and wish to turn left onto Winthrop St, you can't do it until a car comes up behind you.
  • 249–299 Locust St Medford MA 02155, United States - Medford
    locust and freedom way traffic light on the boom is twisted / facing wrong direction
  • Harvard Ave & Mystic River Rd Medford, MA, 02155, USA - Medford
    Traffic light is flashing steady - not in operation. Very busy intersection.
  • 586 Boston Ave Medford 02155, United States - Medford
    Traffic light northbound on Boston ave: sensor is not triggered by bicycles and the light is not automatic. If I get a red and there are no cars with me at the intersection it won’t give me a green and I have to run a red light to get through. Please fix!
