    We have been complaining about the open gate, at the mass pike service plaza, for over 2 years. Why hasn't something been done about this?!!

    Thanks for the prompt assignment. My understanding is that Mass DOT has the authority and jurisdiction over the gate/rest stop & local Framingham PD would have to enforce the speeding on Woodland Rd. Thanks!

    You don't save any tolls using that or the eastbound Natick rest area entrance, just laziness by DOT workers. The overhead toll gantries are placed to cost you the toll regardless of where you get on. If you use this Woodland Rd entry you will still get hit for the toll 1/2 mile west when crossing over Edgell Road. Natick's entry gate is always open and MassDOT will say it's for snow plowing but it was open last July and August and September... I would simply swing it shut and just like MWRA yellow barrier gates to the untrained eye it's now closed again.

    Content blocked ?? This problem has got exponential worse ever since they paved the "road" from Woodland to the plaza..There really should be speed bumps on this road, before the road was so bad people had to drive slow!!

    I agree that paving that road has made the problem worse. The poor condition of the road previously curtailed some of the nefarious behavior. Now they feel more empowered!

    dot.feedback.district3@state.ma.us ; Here is the email I use to contact Mass DOT with my concerns. They are very polite and seem to want to help, The more feedback they get, the better our chances of seeing something done.

    The Mass Pike gate at the service plaza has been open for over a year now.
    Our neighborhood has become an unofficial on/off ramp to the highway.
    The open gate, along with the recently paved road leading to it, has cars flying through our neighborhood.
    Pleas sit at this parking area around the afternoon commute and watch the cars unlawfully exit the pike and FLY onto Woodland and Florita .
    I sat her for 5 minutes and shot video of 3 cars exited the pike through the open gate.
    Why is NOTHING being done about this?

    Every Sat. Mass fire arms customers line up their cars on Kuniholm dr.,They park up to and around the corner on October hill leaving no room around the stop sign/intersection. With all the truck traffic this makes for a dangerous situation, it is very difficult with a truck&trailer to turn right onto Kuniholm from October hill. This is a industrial park with more truck traffic than your normal roads.I would like to see cars parked around the stop sign ticketed.
    This happens every week end!

    There is a large amount of trash under the fence that separates the pike plaza & the access road to it( at the end of Woodland dr). This has to be attracting mice rats and all sorts of other wildlife.
    I know this probably isn't the town's property but there must be something it can do to get the DOT to clean & maintain this area.

    How would one go about requesting a street light be installed? Cars constantly "park" between my house and my neighbor in a blind spot under a telephone pole. They leave their trash all over the place after they are done smoking something that requires them to light it every few seconds .We call the police but it can take them a half hour or more to respond sometimes , frequently the cars are gone before police arrive.

    On my homebound commute I have noticed a disturbing trend. Driving north on main st towards edgell rd, the traffic in the left lane on the bridge backs up waiting to turn left on to 9 west. I noticed it become more and more common for obnoxious drivers to use the right lane to pass the people waiting to turn left, they then stop at the green light put on their left blinker and wait to cut in. This idiotic maneuver holds up everyone trying to use the lane as intented to proceed straight on to edgell rd. Traffic is all ready backed up from this intersection all the way down franklin and union st. This illegall turn just exaggerates the already frustrating series of intersections. 2 weeks ago I saw this happen twice and 3 times last week.
    It is a pleasure to see the police watch from the bank on edgell as people are on their best behavior and yet they still have their hands full pulling over all the selfish drivers.
    Please continue to monitor this intersection during rush hour.
