I have submitted this street for this year's 2012 paving. I will hopefully find out soon if it has been accepted.

Agree with J. Paving the street without addressing the clear community desire for slower streets is a mistake.
"PBOT is expected to install 250 to 300 new 20 mph signs at about $150 per sign. But that's assuming every sign needs a new pole. The total cost will be $30,000 to $45,000. "Costs will be lower if fewer poles are needed," said PBOT spokesman Dan Anderson. Even a small adjustment in speed can save lives, experts say. Research by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, for example, shows pedestrians struck by an automobile traveling 30 mph have a 40 percent chance of being killed. At 20 mph, it's 5 percent."
Residential 20MPH zones are needed in New Haven, too - & were specifically requested here in 2008 by more than 2,200 residents, including these groups and elected officials:
Article here with some justifications:
Working for USPS in several townships I have seen a drastic differnce in the care for the roadways. What I have seen here in New Haven shows a complete lack care - worker spots a pot-hole...pulls up..drops a shovel of asphault and taps down with the same shovel. Hours later majority of the fresh asphalt is worn away/missing from car tires pickup up small bits and pieces. Now in a neighboring area two city workers work in unison to patch up several potholes. One will go around and blow out any loose debris or use a broom. Next worker would use some type of tar gun and spray the perimter of the pot hole. Finally the hole is filled with fresh asphalt and a small handheld compacter is used to pack the fresh asphalt down and make it even. All loose debris are swept again and the job continues.
Perhaps what really needs to be done is the people in charge of managing these repairs and cleanups need to be placed on review for I feel they lack the motivation to do visual inspections or lecture their workers on properly maintaining our roadways. I don't enjoy placing emphasis on the people actually out there doing the hard work, but a supervisor should be out on the road correcting or retraining these workers
Voting lets your government know.
