    Bad pothole at this intersection. There are more heading inbound towards Citizens Bank in Davis Square.
  • 501-529 2nd St Everett, MA, 02149, USA - Everett
    At this intersection, where 2nd street comes from Everett towards Rte.16 is a manhole with a huge piece of asphalt torn out from its rim. In fact, the chuck of asphalt is sitting there earnestly waiting to torment an unsuspecting driver with a flat tire or worse. Please fix. Thanks.

    At this intersection, on the side heading towards the produce market, is a sign that says "stop line". It is set 20-25 feet back from Broadway. The purpose of this sign is to ensure that trucks turning from the oil facilities down past the courthouse have the necessary room to turn onto Williams Street and head down towards Eastern Salt and beyond.
    However, someone (city employee or contractor) painted a stop line right at the top of the intersection instead of the sign.
    This inconsistency shouldn't have happened. Now, a driver blocking a truck can legitimately say that the existing stop line indicated to him that he could stop at the top. Either the line should be put near the sign or the sign should be removed. You can't have both.
    Thank You.

    266 Broadway Chelsea, Massachusetts - Chelsea
    I'm sure, that I'm not the first to report this. Sorry if I am. I noticed a new electronic sign at the intersection of 3rd St. & Broadway. It tells drivers that the drawbridge ahead is up. The problem is that the sign is incorrect. The only bridge "ahead" is the bridge that connects Pearl St. Chelsea with Meridian St. East Boston.
    The sign says "Chelsea St. Bridge." That bridge is nowhere near this sign. I understand the thought process in putting up this sign and it's a great idea. Why is it wrong? Please replace the printed message board on the front. Whoever, put it in didn't consider that it's message is going to drivers who need to know about an entirely different bridge.
    Thank You.

    119 Broadway Chelsea, Massachusetts - Chelsea
    The street conditions at the intersection of Williams Street and Broadway are deteriorating quickly. Please do something about the holes in this area. It has gone from bad to worse in a matter of days. The stretch from the check cashers to Chestnut Street has turned into an obstacle course for drivers not wanting to destroy their suspensions, tires and wheels.
    Thank you.

    180 Everett Avenue Chelsea, Massachusetts - Chelsea
    The entire length of Everett Ave. from Rte. 16 to the railway crossing is a disaster. I've lived in Chelsea for 10 years now, and nothing has been done to fix it. Please repave this entire stretch. The area right near the train tracks is particularly galling. Does anyone in city government cross this road? Has no one thought to fix this area? If the FBI is building in this area, ask them for help. Please fix this. Ask the legislators to get money from the state. Do something. Please fix this road. Please. Please. Please. Please.
  • 32 Everett Avenue Chelsea, Massachusetts - Chelsea
    For years this spot, directly under Route 1 has been getting progressively worse. No patches, no paving, nothing has been done. Now with the storms this area is dangerous for cars. The holes can't be seen at night and are dangerous. Axles, ball joints, tires, wheels, rims, shocks, struts... will be severely damaged. Please fix this whole area with an appropriate repaving.
  • 2 3rd Street Chelsea, Massachusetts - Chelsea
    Bad location for potholes. This is a very busy intersection and the holes can't be seen when a car turns from Broadway onto 3rd. Large and spread out. Hard to avoid.

    Large deep pothole on right hand side of street.. Big enough to swallow a tire and cause significant damage.
