    600 University Ave Se Minneapolis 55414, United States - Marcy Holmes
    On 6th Ave SE crossing University Ave SE (in line with SB lane). Observed at 8:30 AM on 1/8/19.
  • 1115 22nd Ave Se Minneapolis 55414, United States - Southeast Como
    Because I do not feel safe trying to cross East Hennepin during rush hour, I am only able to use Route 61 for one direction of travel and must turn to more circuitous routes to form a complete trip. Vote here if your access to Route 61 bus service is similarly limited or if you simply would like it to be easier to safely cross East Hennepin.
  • 500 Central Ave Se Minneapolis 55414, United States - Marcy Holmes
    The “Don’t walk” orange hand is out on the southwest-facing pedestrian signal head at the eastern corner of Central and Hennepin, resulting in a blank signal face.
  • 5th St Se Minneapolis 55414, United States - Marcy Holmes
    The “Don’t Walk” orange hand indicator is out on the pedestrian signal head facing west at the southeast corner of 5th St and Central Ave/TH 65. Was too cold to take photo.

  • 3547-3599 1st Avenue South Minneapolis, Minnesota - Lyndale
    When the NE corner of 36th St and 1st Ave was rebuilt, they installed the grate on the storm drain sideways (in such a way as to align the grooves with this bike lane). This creates a major hazard for bicycle riders--if your front wheel goes between the slats you will go down. Beware!
  • 2800 1st Ave S Minneapolis, MN 55408, USA - Whittier
  • 1520 1st Ave S Minneapolis, MN 55403, USA - Loring Park
  • 99 Glenwood Ave Minneapolis, MN 55403, USA - North Loop
  • 84 N 3rd St Minneapolis, MN 55401, USA - Downtown West
  • 22 East 15th Street Minneapolis, Minnesota - Loring Park
    The 1st Ave/Blaisdell bike lanes are great, but to use them I must pass through this intersection on my morning commute. Morning traffic volumes on 15th St appear to be extremely low, yet this signal prioritizes that movement by providing it with an unreasonably long phase. Bicycle and car traffic on 1st Ave is expected to wait for over a minute while the intersection sits empty. The result is a very low rate of compliance among people waiting to cross 15th St. This is dangerous because there are poor sight lines for traffic on eastbound 15th St. This situation is not fair to anybody.

    130-160 Winchester Ave New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Dixwell
    Pole number 3576 on Winchester Ave, on the northern edge of the Winchester Ave driveway for the parking lot of the apartment complex (130 Winchester—at corner with Webster). Street lamp is out.
  • 1 Columbus Plaza New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown
    The speed limit sign on the Oak St Connector near the Knights of Columbus building is upside down.
  • 43-47 Devine Street North Haven, Connecticut - North Haven
    Hamden and North Haven are so close (as the crow flies), yet so far (by transit). One can get from Hartford to the Devine St park & ride in just 45 minutes; the bus can get you to downtown New Haven in 20 minutes; future rail service, if our representatives ever manage to secure the necessary funding, will be even faster; but how is one supposed to get to and from Devine St without a car? How about a circulator bus route, timed to connect with the express bus (existing) or rail service (in the future), linking Hamden Center with North Haven and the world beyond?
  • 105 Court Street New Haven, Connecticut - Town_Green

    TT&P reported two and a half weeks ago that this signal had been recalibrated to detect bicycles on Court Street. Today was my first chance to test it. I am sorry to report that the signal continues to be unresponsive. I waited for about four minutes without any change. At one point I rode around in a circle, at which time the southbound signals on State St changed to red, but the northbound signals stayed green and my signal (Court St eastbound) stayed red. After about ten or fifteen seconds southbound State returned to green with my signal continuing to be red. There isn't any left turn from northbound State to westbound Court, so this signal behavior defies any logic I can see.

    TT&P, can you provide guidance on where the zone of maximum detection is likely to be and if there is anything a person can do to be more likely to be detected? Was riding in a circle actually likely to help? Would a flashing headlight be detected? Would waving my arms around help?
