Requests: bike concern
Thanks! Thanked!Central Ave Ne & Monroe St Ne Albuquerque, NM, 87108, USADespite the presence a sign stating "to request green, wait on ", waiting on said image (the bike box) did not trigger the green light. We waited through three light cycles and were never given a green. We had two bicycles (and two people) on the green bike box.
201 Adams St Ne Albuquerque, NM, 87108, USA
Plate #586TPH - This vehicle has been sitting here, with glass all over the street, for well over 6 months now. It has had windows broken out NUMEROUS TIMES, and I have reason to suspect that homeless people have been living in it.
The owner refuses to clean up the glass on the road. ALL of the glass is scattered everywhere, damaging vehicles, preventing wheelchair/bicycle travel, and injuring people/animals. The other vehicles on the street don't have broken windows, but this vehicle is repeatedly targeted, and the mess is never cleaned up.
This is now a safety issue, and a liability issue for the city. I have multiple witnesses who can confirm this vehicle has been here for months (including the glass on the ground), and I myself have seen people and animals get injured while walking on the sidewalk.
I previously spoke to APD when I requested to have a homeless person removed from my backyard on this street - they advised there would be scheduled patrols in this area. Obviously, that has not happened or else there wouldn't be an abandoned vehicle here.
Once again I get to babysit the City of Albuquerque, after being lied to by the ABQ police dept. Get this vehicle off of the road and get the glass cleaned up before I take legal action against this city.
Copper And San Mateo Albuquerque, New Mexico
The new bike boulevard crossing at Copper and San Mateo has signs telling cyclists to wait on the green pad for automatic bike detection. When I filed a report on this last month (case #180123-000115) I was told that the loop detectors had not yet been installed.
We shouldn't have a sign telling us they have been.
Central Ave Ne & Monroe St Ne Albuquerque, NM, 87108, USA
I filed a report this morning about a loop detector on Monroe southbound at Central that did not detect my metal bicycle:
It was immediately closed with a cryptic
"Thank you for submitting this request, it has been resolved. Notes:
Resolved. Closed in VUEWorks
This provides me, a member of the public, with zero useful information about what is being done, has been done, or will be done in the future to address the issue I am raising.
What does "Closed in VUEWorks" mean has been done about the loop detector that doesn't work?
Monroe St Ne & Central Ave Ne Albuquerque, NM, 87108, USAMonroe SB at Central, loop detector fails to detect metal bicycles. This is one of the intersections with Kermit green pavement paint and a sign directing cyclists to use said Kermit green painted loop detector to trip the signal.
Washington St. Ne Between Copper And Central Albuquerque, New MexicoOn Washington St. between Copper and Central, the bike lanes have been obliterated and need to be repainted. The lane on the northbound side was dug up and completely repaved last fall for replacement of water mains, and has not been repainted. The lane on the southbound side was badly abraded from sand, gravel, and construction both from the water repair and the redevelopment of the De Anza site on the west side of the street. There are a few small areas where bits of the striping paint survive. But one has to look hard to see them, and with the dirt in the lane I doubt many drivers even notice them. Driver behavior has gotten worse, from a bicylist's perspective, because poor changes to the signal timing have led to fewer vehicles on Washington being able to cross Central, and repainting the bike lanes will make it clearer to drivers that bicycles are supposed to have space when traversing this stretch of Washington.
529 Adams Street Northeast Albuquerque, New Mexico
I wanted to report a pair of hazardous potholes.
They are in the thoroughfare alley behind 7-11 on the corner of Lomas and Washington and the newly established High and Brewery behind. The Alley runs West and East and has a potential to result in harm or injury for walking or bicycle riding pedestrians. Appox potholes sizes are about 1'x3'
Since the alley is not well lit a brewery patron is very likely to twist an ankle or worse if left untreated. If the city can help it would be greatly appreciated. I cannot offer any money towards a fix to the situation but can offer my time if allowed.
