    Rogers Street between 5th and 3rd Street is supposedly a two-way street. Or at least I assume so do due the lack of a Do Not Enter/one way sign at either end. However, there is no stop line or stop sign as one reaches 3rd Street from the west. And the stop line on the 5th Street side extends over the whole street, suggesting that maybe the street isn't two-way after all. In addition, the vast majority of vehicles parked on both sides of the street are all facing westbound. So can the City of Cambridge clarify this by adding a stop sign and fixing the paint to better indicate that the road is two way? It seems like the city may also need to better enforce it's rule of ticketing cars for parking the wrong direction. On the other hand, if the whole issue is that there is a missing set of Do Not Enter/ One Way signs, please add them to this block.

    Water leaking from a City of Somerville water manhole for the past two months. I'm reporting this issue again as the City seems to be either misunderstanding or ignoring earlier requests to fix this.
    2015: https://seeclickfix.com/issues/1754195
    2014: https://seeclickfix.com/issues/1069818 (was fixed, at least for a bit)

    I've attached a photo from a different angle that clearly shows the location of this water leak in the context of both Myrtle Street and Washington Street. It is on Myrtle Street, very close to the interesection with Washington Street, on a public right of way, involving the city water system. It doesn't appear to have anything to do with any private property.

    25-37 Medford Street Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville
    The last update the city provided to the community on this site (https://seeclickfix.com/issues/1285871) said that paving of Medford Street, originally scheduled for the 2013 street reconstruction season, would be completed in spring 2015. Why has this street-- between Somerville Avenue and the Cambridge line-- still not been repaved yet? When will it be repaved?

    Water or sewer leak

    This trucking business regularly parks vehicles on the sidewalk.
  • 280 Mcgrath Highway Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville
    This property-- which also faces Mansfield Street-- has not shoveled their Medford Street/McGrath Highway portion of the sidewalk the entire winter. Hopefully they have been fined repeatedly since the first snow storm, but since it isn't obvious this has been reported before, I'm documenting it now.

    Target/CW Price has not shoveled their sidewalk in about a month. Icy conditions especially on the portion of the sidewalk adjoining Medford Street.

    A Do Not Enter Sign at the entrance to Myrtle Street was removed or destroyed at some point in the last year, but a metal stub remains and sticks out of the sidewalk several inches and is a major tripping hazard.

    Not sure if this is sewer or just a water leak, but it's been going on for over a week and seems to be a repeat of a similar leak that occurred over the winter. It's at the base of Myrtle Street right where it intersects with Washington Street.
