  • 2-98 Davis Square Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville
    One of the lights in Davis square, by the statue of the walking couple, is out. The plastic globe is smashed on the ground and the bulb is exposed.
  • 54 Warwick Street Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville

    The new connection to the Community Path at the elbow of Warwick St is great to have!

    We really should have a curb cut there for mobility impaired people's use. The nearest one is quite a ways up Warwick St. and isn't really practical.

  • Summer And Willow Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville
    The crosswalk button at the east corner of Summer and Willow has failed. The other buttons seem to work.
  • 315-319 Summer St Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville
    Crosswalk button failure
  • 37 Davis Square Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville
    Davis square water fountain is broken.
  • 47 Lexington Ave Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville
    Water fountain drain clogged at Lexington park.
  • Union Square Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville
    The bike lanes on Somerville Ave are some of the best-cleared bike lanes in the area — congrats! However, the bike lane in the area where Somerville Ave intersects with Washington needs to be cleared. It's already a treacherous crossing over to Webster, and having the bike lane suddenly disappear beneath the snow is especially dangerous.
  • 53 Willow Ave Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville
    The walk button on the east corner of the intersection does not work.
  • 518-598 Technology Square Cambridge, Massachusetts - The Port
    The irrigation system next to the substation here is malfunctioning and leaking a lot of water.
  • 18-22 Windom St Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville
    Some truck snapped a large limb from a tree and it is lying in the road.
  • 305 Webster Ave Cambridge, Massachusetts - Wellington-Harrington
    There are several large potholes in front of CLM Auto. Some of them are 2-3 sq ft, and down to the cobblestones.
  • 29 Bow Street Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville

    I watched yet another cyclist get hit by a car at the Bow & Summer intersection. Fortunately he fell clear of the car's wheels, but it could have been very very bad. This intersection needs to be fixed ASAP, before someone gets seriously injured.

    The issue is this:
    Cars who are traveling northwest on Bow and taking the right fork onto Summer St do NOT realize that they are making a right turn, and need to yield to bike traffic "continuing" to the left on Bow.

    In the situation yesterday, the car half-passed the biker from behind, and then right-hooked him as the biker tried to continue in his lane to the left.

    The design of this intersection is so obviously terrible — please please fix it before someone ends up in the hospital...

  • Somerville Community Path Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville
    The asphalt of the Community Path between Cedar and Willow is looking pretty cracked and worn. It needs probably a full repaving.
  • 42 Hancock St Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville
  • 148 Summer St Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville
    There are some temporary stop signs which are in the intersection here, even though the traffic light is working fine. It's confusing the heck out of cars trying to decide what to do when faced with a simultaneous stop sign and traffic light.
  • Summer And Cutter Somerville, MA - Somerville
    pedestrian walk signal pointed in wrong direction
  • 66 Bow Street Somerville, MA 02143, USA - Somerville
    This beautiful sidewalk was installed at great cost only last year. NStar apparently thought it was OK to chop it up and patch it back together with some asphalt. They should put it back the way they found it! We all paid for it!
  • 159-169 Portland Street Cambridge, MA 02139, USA - The Port
    This truck is parked in a really busy island between two intersections. It is causing a real traffic mess! How does he not get ticketed?
  • 35 Windsor Road Somerville, MA 02144, USA - Somerville
    combined with the tree, this sidewalk is impassable to wheelchairs, strollers, etc
