  • 277 Lexington Ave New Haven 06513, United States - Fair Haven Heights
    Sewer Grate Stolen
    The sewer grate (cover) on the north side of Howard St by the intersection of Lexington Ave was stolen last night. This has left a hole large enough for a child or animal to fall down. Please address ASAP.
  • Washington Blvd Stamford, CT, 06902, USA - South End
    I work in Stamford Pl and walk along State St to the train station nightly. The congestion along State St heading towards Washington is BAD and it can take several light cycles to get through the intersection some evenings. Tonight the drivers decided to take matters into their own hands. At approx 5:38pm I had the pedestrian signal at State St / Washington, with traffic stopped in ALL directions for 35 seconds since it's a large intersection. But the cars waiting on State St decided to ignore the red lights and go straight through anyway, crossing Washington. 30+ cars, shuttle buses and even a CT Transit but crossed that huge intersection on a solid red light, with the pedestrian light activated. Think about that for a second, if you know that intersection. It was chaotic and very dangerous, as it was dark and raining outside. Can we PLEASE get some police presence here, if for no other reason than pedestrians cannot safely cross, even when we have the walk signal! We also really need traffic control of the shuttle bus area, to prevent buses backing up and blocking the intersection. No one is controlling the flow at night (not tonight, anyway), and this is partly what's causing State St to back up all the way past Greenwich Ave!

  • 15 Howard St New Haven, Connecticut - Fair Haven Heights
    Howard Street was milled last week--which is great, no complaints, love the reduced traffic speeds :) However the milling machine dislodged and broke several sections of curbing on both sides of the street. Combined with the curb broken into 4 sections two months ago by DPW, we really need our curbing fixed before / when the street is re-paved. Can someone please add this to the work list? The curbing was holding back the soil & plants. Thank you!

  • 376 Blatchley Ave New Haven Connecticut - Fair Haven
    In October of 2015 we went to DPW in person and requested trash bins. We were told it would be taken care of. It's now June 2016, EIGHT MONTHS LATER, and still we have no bins. We have personally visited DPW THREE TIMES now, most recently on Monday, 6/6/2016, and still no bins. How is this a functioning department? Why does it involve such a headache and so much wasted time on our part to get trash bins? Should we deliver bags of trash directly to DPW and let them take care of it? Absolutely amazing that nothing has been done in eight months and 3 requests for trash bins.
    Fix this!
  • Chapel St & East St New Haven, Connecticut - Mill River
    When coming from Fair Haven, heading west on Chapel and turning left onto East Street, the left green arrow did not activate for FIVE light cycles this morning (7:45 am). The light was only green for about 15 seconds, so there was a backup of approximately 30 cars trying to turn onto East. Will you please correct this ASAP? This is a busy intersection in the morning and this light appears to be broken now. It was working 3 days ago.
  • 27 Oxford St New Haven, Connecticut - Fair Haven Heights
    27 Oxford St has never shoveled their sidewalk from the snow over a week ago. There is also a recycling bin AND two mattresses blocking the sidewalk. What is wrong with people?? This is a steep, sloping sidewalk down to Quinnipiac Ave and pedestrians are now forced to walk in the street. DPW & LCI will you please assist with enforcing the anti-blight and snow shovelibg laws? Thank you.
  • 29 Union Street New Haven, Connecticut - Wooster Square

  • 539 Grand Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Mill River
    DPW - Please investigate and correct your employees on this.
    Yesterday/Wednesday morning, 7:00 am, a white DPW pickup truck was parked in the westbound bike AND traffic lane. He was completely blocking the bike lane and partially blocking the vehicle lane--the semi truck that passed had to drive in the opposing traffic lane to get around! As I biked past I knocked on the side of the truck to let him know how very unsafe this was and he beeped his horn at me! This is super unsafe and illegal -- why is this okay? Please advise on this matter. Thank you.
