  • N Champlain St & Manhattan Dr Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    Crosswalk on Manhattan at N. Champlain lacks pedestrian signals. This should be updated to include signals with a leading pedestrian interval, just like the one a block to the west at Park St. There should also be a "no turn on red" sign/signal during the pedestrian phase to keep the sidewalk clear of northbound traffic turning right onto Manhattan.
  • Burlington United States - Burlington Electric
    Stairs going down to Leddy Beach are in rough shape. Uneven, falling apart with exposed screws.
  • Railway Ln Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    On the section of the Waterfront Greenway just along the beach club and to the south of there, it looks like the rail company did a bunch of tree/shrub trimming which caused all their trimmings to fall into the bike path side of the fence. It is already super narrow through this section because of the construction at the old Blodgett building & needs to be cleaned up before it causes a collision.

    Center line striping (yellow) was not repainted this spring. Not just here, but all over the city. White lines were repainted, but yellow lines were not. Pine St is also quite bad. Did the contractor just not finish all the long line painting?

    150 Cherry St Burlington 05401 United States - Burlington Electric
    City issued an encumbrance permit to New Moon that allows them to block access to almost this entire bike rack, making it unusable. Please move the rack to a better location & also reverse the installation so it is accessible from the street. Bikes are not allowed on sidewalks downtown & current configuration is difficult to access for many users.
  • 389 Us-2 Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    Multiple sections of the Riverside MUP are overgrown, creating hazards to two way bike traffic at drastically different speeds up and down the hill. Please trim all greenery so full width of path can be used.
  • 57 N Champlain St Burlington 05401, United States - Burlington Electric
    SUV parked in protected bike lane.
  • 112–186 Bike Path Burlington 05408, United States - Burlington Electric
    One of the wheels in the “zip line” has come off, so it doesn’t roll well.
  • 145 Cherry St Burlington 05401, United States - Burlington Electric
    Please move this rack to a better location where access isn’t blocked by a tree & cafe seating. It is difficult to access & underutilized. It would also be very helpful if it was reversed so bikes could be loaded from the street side. Bikes are not allowed on sidewalks downtown & the current configuration requires a user to get their bike up onto the sidewalk, back down into the rack, and then reverse this process which is a challenge for many folks.
  • 136 Northshore Dr Burlington, VT, 05408, USA - Burlington Electric

    On the stairs that access the Northshore beach, North of Starr Farm on the bike path, it used to say "No dogs on beach" and there was an additional sign before the stairs. The sign is now missing, and the "no" has been sanded off.

    Can someone from Parks or the City please clarify? Are dogs allowed on this beach, or not? It is unclear if the policy has changed, or if this was vandalized.

  • 453 Pine St Burlington 05401, United States - Burlington Electric
    Please install additional “no parking this side of street” signage on the west side of Pine St. It might also help to re-stencil bike symbols in the bike lane to keep people from parking in it.
  • 501 Pine St Burlington 05401, United States - Burlington Electric
    Three blocks worth of cars parked in the bike lane on Pine St.
  • 1-49 Walnut St Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    Staff car illegally parked blocking sidewalk in school zone. DPW tractor also parked across sidewalk, with no closure signage in place... while the sidewalk on the east side of Walnut is full closed. This is totally unacceptable, especially during school drop off.
  • 311 North Ave Burlington 05401, United States - Burlington Electric
    Just south of the Burlington College redevelopment in the southbound bike lane, the sweeper must have been full. It stopped, left a 4” pile of dirt right in the middle of the bike lane, big enough to cause a crash. Sweeping needed from there south.
  • 277 Pine St Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    Southbound bike lane striping and stencils are gone after this winter. Please re-stripe & stencil the bike lane, and the crosswalks on Pine.
  • 486-518 North Ave Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    Pothole, in the section that was repaved just last summer. Through multiple layers of asphalt to the cement sub-base. Northbound lane, right wheel track. Cement is blowing out of the pothole into the bike lane.
  • Sweeping Needed Acknowledged
    726 North Ave Burlington, VT, 05408, USA - Burlington Electric
    East side of North Ave, about halfway between Institute Rd & the 127. Large patches of dirt in the bike lane, big enough & deep enough to cause a crash. Somehow these did not get swept during clean sweep.
  • Dead Animal Archived
    Beltline Burlington 05401, United States - Burlington Electric
    Dead deer. 127 Northbound, just north of the exit sign, in the ditch on the right, up against the fence next to the bike path.
  • 1-53 S Union St Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    The low curbs along Union have been damaged by another winter of plowing. Many are missing, plenty more are damaged and only partially attached. Flexposts are also missing and/or damaged for much of the length of Union. Some (as pictured) present an immediate danger and should be fixed or removed ASAP. Ideally this whole lane needs to be rebuilt to the original specifications because after not getting repaired last summer, there really isn't much physical protection left for people who bike in this lane.
  • College St Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    The asphalt on the west side of the tracks where the greenway crosses has heaved over the winter, making this angled crossing even more sketchy than it was before. Ideally, asphalt should be ground down to level so the surface is more even. Might also want to work with the rail company to install industrial rubber inserts at this crossing location to avoid crashes in the future. Track crossing warning signs might also help tourists who frequently crash here who are not used to biking this section.
