    People constantly pass recklessly in the left turn lane over here. Good place to have police watching. Have almost been sideswiped multiple times because of this. Always happens traveling southbound in front of the old Stop & Shop. Thanks in advance.

    Who would I write to so I can ask about when a street will be paved? I'm getting nothing on here so I'd rather just write to a higher authority if possible. Thanks.

    After ten complaints on this issue, nothing has been done. If somebody could come take a look at the problem, you'll understand. What I'm asking is that somebody come and take a look at Jewett Ave and realize that number one, it needs to be swept, and number two, it NEEDS to be paved! Too many holes that have been patched a million times! And the debris on the sides of the road is hazardous! Just come take a look instead of overlooking this every time I report it. I'm 100% sure other residents would support this street getting paved.

    Lots and lots of large potholes on Madison before Trumbull town line. Have to swerve left and right to avoid them, please fix!

    Really deep pothole right after the curve at the light. Almost hit it today, saw it just in time thankfully.

    This is my ninth time complaining about this issue. Before you skip to the comment section and give me some generic response, let me lay out the problem. I have attached a photo this time. Everything you see at the bottom of the photo are pebbles. This is only a section of the street, but all of Jewett Ave looks the same, with pebbles and debris all along the sides of the road. There are multiple problems this causes
    1) Reduced vehicle traction
    2) Pedestrians walking in the middle of the road or on people's grass to avoid the debris
    3) Bicycles are difficult to control on pebbles like these.

    I have personally walked, driven, and ridden a bicycle on this debris and it's horrible. Jewett Ave needs to be swept. It is absolutely shameful that nothing has been done about this after NUMEROUS complaints. I'm beginning to wonder if they are even read. These pebbles have been on the street since the winter. It is almost summer now. DO NOT GIVE THE SAME RESPONSE AS ALWAYS. All I'm asking is that something be done.

    How many complaints need to be made for this street to be swept? This is my sixth time complaining and I always get the EXACT same response and nothing is done. THERE ARE PEBBLES ALONG THE SIDES OF THE ROAD AND THEY ARE DANGEROUS AND CAN CAUSE PEOPLE TO SLIP AND FALL AND CAN ALSO CAUSE CARS TO LOSE TRACTION. COME SEE FOR YOURSELF IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME. THIS IS HORRENDOUS, PATHETIC, AND SICKENING. SIX TIMES I'VE COMPLAINED, DO SOMETHING ALREADY!

    Jewett Ave. is riddled with pebbles on sides of road. This street NEEDS TO BE SWEPT. This is my third complaint. "Thank you for reporting your issue to the city of Bridgeport. We will address this as soon as we can. Thank you!" Is all I ever hear back. Pathetic. Hazard for pedestrians, cars, and bicycles. Other places sweep their streets every week. Over here, maybe once a year. Or less. Please just sweep this street.

    Tons of potholes in this area. They're quite massive too. They are between Forestview Rd and Oakview Dr, all on Old Town Rd in Bridgeport.
  • 2444 Madison Ave Bridgeport, CT 06606, USA - Bridgeport
    At the intersection of Jewett and Madison, people just love running these stop signs. From people turning right without stopping, to going out of turn, and many just flat out seem to gas it as they get to these stop signs. I reported this before as a street sign issue and the response was that it was a police matter, and it was closed. Please have some sort of patrol at this intersection, it's extremely dangerous. And please give tickets to these people, maybe then they'll learn.

    Lots of debris on Jewett Ave. This consists of pebbles, and what seems like small pieces of asphalt. Please sweep this street. This is the second time I'm complaining about this and nothing is being done.
  • 2584-2624 Madison Ave Bridgeport, CT 06606, USA - Bridgeport
    People keep passing in the left turn lane. There's a sign but no painted arrow so some people either don't notice or are driving aggressively just to pass people. This is at the intersection for the old Stop & Shop on Madison Ave.
  • 320 Glendale Ave Bridgeport, CT 06606, USA - Bridgeport
    At the intersection of Sunrise and Glendale, there's an apartment complex parking lot where cars always dart out. The stop sign here says "All Way" yet it doesn't appear that the people exiting the parking lot have a stop sign. Please address this ASAP, a guy came inches from crashing into me the other day because of this.
  • 426-450 Savoy St Bridgeport, CT 06606, USA - Bridgeport
    There's a tree sticking out that causes it to be difficult to see the sign until the last second.
  • 360-390 Peet St Bridgeport, CT 06606, USA - Bridgeport
    There are a couple moderate sized holes here. They're not so bad, however they should be fixed before they become worse.
  • 1990-2010 Old Town Rd Trumbull, CT 06611, USA - Bridgeport
    There is a gigantic pothole on Old Town Rd that I keep having to go around every single day. It is right before Cumberland Dr. Today I was forced to hit it because of a vehicle on the other side of the road. If nothing is done and it damages my car, the city is paying for it, so fix it. I've reported this more than once now, it is ridiculous that nothing is being done.
  • Madison Ave/ Vincelette St Bridgeport, Connecticut - Bridgeport
    There are quite a few holes right before the intersection of Madison and Vincelette, traveling southbound on Madison. I've seen this area get the potholes filled and the time seem to just come back after a little while and I have to swerve left and right to avoid them. This area should just be paved.
  • 1741 Old Town Rd Bridgeport, CT 06606, USA - Bridgeport
    Lots and lots and lots of potholes between forestview and oakview, all on old town rd in Bridgeport
