Please add a Walk signal and striping. It is unsafe for pedestrians to cross at Olive and Grand.
Hey Linda, do you think you could possibly adjust the position of the clicket on the map so that it is closer to the actual intersection?
To do this, go to the email you got after reporting the issue, and click on the link below “Get your digital camera!
You can change or add a picture to this clicket here:”
Then click and drag the call out icon to the correct location.
It's not really a huge deal, but for some reason it matters to me.
Michael is correct. The issue needs to be expanded and looked at more holistically. The bus stop on Grand is within about 30 ft of the intersection with Olive and this causes long lines, delays and a terribly safety hazard for pedestrians and vehicular traffic as well.
Solution: The bus stop should be moved further east.
The CT transit drivers and the First Student bus drivers are dangerous.
1. I have seen both of them regularly drive through pedestrian cross-walks when pedestrians were in the cross-walk.
2. The drivers are often on their cell phones.
3. The drivers do not provide right of way.
4. They are discourteous and do not provide right of way to pedestrians or vehicles.
There is inadequate turning radius on the streets for some of the buses.
1. Chapel and Olive: buses headed east and turning north and buses on Chapel heading west turning north ( onto Olive) force traffic waiting at the red light to back up.
2. I was almost hit by a CT transit bus on Monday when I was waiting to cross East St on the SW corner of Chapel. Had I not jumped back, I would have been wiped out.
I was really hoping that pedestrian crossings would be in place when they reopened the bridge.
This is a fantastically dangerous intersection for pedestrians.
It's not just this intersection, everyone. The city is replacing their entire central city traffic light management computer, since the old one died.
It's not just a matter of "turning on" this one intersection, it's a matter of finishing the whole system (something like 20 intersections) and then switching over to that system.
As far as I know, it's on schedule and should be done this summer.
Thanks for the information and update, Pedro.
I have seen a lot of other intersections with new - but unconnected - traffic lights.
Not to be sarcastic, but this intersection has been like this forever. We're just back to what it was in 2006 before the bridge closed, but actually it's better since there is actually crosswalk paint. I walk across this intersection all the time (i live on Lyon). It's not THAT hard to cross.
The problem here is that the bridge was a state DOT project and the traffic signal is a city project, and the 2 communicate about as well as 2 people speaking different languages.
Consequently, when bridge was ready to be opened, it just opened. The state announced it and went ahead and did it. It made ZERO bearing that the city wasn't ready with the traffic signals, since, quite frankly, the state DOT really doesn't care about pedestrians, seeing us as some weird thing that get in the ways of cars.
Public status changes are not available for this issue.
Sorry, this issue does not have any images or videos.
Voting lets your government know.
What is this?
