  • 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!

  • 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.

    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?

    205-215 York Street New Haven, Connecticut - Yale University Campus
    A pothole has just opened up at the corner of a patch in the road in the right-hand lane on York St adjacent to Jonathan Edwards College. The hole is roughly in line with the left wheel path of any vehicles in the right-hand lane.

    State Street North New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown
    Some of the potholes on this section of State St were patched, for which I am very grateful. However, there is still one large gap in the pavement stretching across the whole right-hand lane. It's at the second expansion joint north of Water St, roughly in line with the SE corner of the Knights of Columbus Museum. The gap has opened up where the asphalt roadway meets the concrete around the expansion joint.
  • 80 Legion Avenue New Haven, CT 06519, USA - New Haven - Ward 03
    How is one supposed to get to or from the Career High School bike racks (located along Legion Ave) without biking on the sidewalk or going the wrong way on Rt 34?

    824-842 Chapel Street New Haven, CT 06510, USA - Town_Green
    A cut was made to dig a trench across the westbound lanes on Chapel St between Orange and Church at some point and the patch job is coming apart. It needs some work. You get quite a jolt going over it at the moment.
