  • 24 West Pomeroy Lane Amherst, Massachusetts - South Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As of about three hours ago the street/stop sign pole for West Pomeroy Lane at West Street was down, though the signs appeared to still be attached.
  • Blocking Public Way Acknowledged
    604 Main Street Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. The foliage on the northeast corner of the Main Street–North Whitney Street intersection is partially blocking the sidewalk, as well as the view of the westbound lane of Main Street from vehicles attempting to exit North Whitney.
  • 290 Lincoln Avenue Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. The foliage on the southwest corner of the Fearing Street–Lincoln Avenue intersection is blocking the view of Lincoln, to the detriment of safety.
  • Pothole Acknowledged
    111 Fearing Street Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As of tonight there is a series of potholes on Fearing Street immediately west of the intersection with Lincoln Avenue, with the deepest one being closest to the stop sign.
  • 132 Pelham Road Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As of tonight the speed limit sign on the north side of Pelham Road closest to Thayer Street is almost totally overgrown by vines.
  • 476 Main Street Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As of tonight the sidewalk between High Street and the railroad tracks on the north side of Main Street is blocked (overgrown) by shrubbery.
  • 2 High Street Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As of tonight the sign for High Street at Main Street (only) is missing.
  • 259-263 Lincoln Avenue Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. The sign (only) for Cosby Avenue at Lincoln Avenue is missing.
  • 325 East Pleasant Street Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. The 40 MPH sign for the northbound lane of East Pleasant Street, opposite the water tanks and the matching 35 MPH sign for the southbound lane, is missing. (The street address is approximate.)
  • Paige Avenue At Mcclellan Street Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As of this past weekend the sign (only) for Paige Avenue at McClellan Street is missing
  • Massachusetts Avenue Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst

    Greetings and felicitations. The time between when the left turn signal for Massachusetts Avenue eastbound onto North Pleasant Street northbound turns red and when the light for traffic merging onto Massachusetts Avenue westbound is just a little too short. When the east- and northbound traffic gets a green light, the last Massachusetts Avenue turning traffic is still moving across the intersection, making for a dangerous situation.

    Also, when the westbound traffic’s straight arrow light turns green, the northbound green turn arrow turns off, which is slightly confusing, since it should still be on. (At this point both northbound and westbound traffic is allowed to move.)

    Would you please be so kind as to rectify this?

    Ciao,

  • 300-340 Main Street Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst

    Greetings and felicitations. The “No Turn on Red” sign facing the westbound lane turns off (I believe) when the green right turn arrow is on, but not when the round (main) green light is on--or vice versa (I’m afraid I forget). In any case, it is on for part of the time that a righthand turn *is* allowed, it is on, confusing drivers who are unfamiliar with the intersection, who in turn vex those of us who are. Would you please be so kind as to rectify this?

    Ciao,

    John C. Watson

  • 56-66 Hobart Lane Amherst, Massachusetts - North Amherst

    A tree limb is blocking the southwestbound lane of the Larkspur Drive near the property line of nos. 75 and 79.
  • 98 Mcclellan Street Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As of tonight the sign (only) for McClellan Street at Lincoln Avenue is missing.

    Greetings and felicitations. As of tonight the sign (only) for Cosby Avenue at Lincoln Avenue is missing.
  • 18-20 Webster Street Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. This is more of a question. There is a red Solo cup duct taped to the top of the fire hydrant, over the valve nut; the cup has been there for months. I'd throw it in the trash myself, but the duct tape makes me think that its placement might have a purpose. If it doesn't, please let me know.
  • 425 Amity Street Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As described, the signals were flashing as of less than an hour ago.
  • 1 South Pleasant Street Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst

  • 568 South East Street Amherst, Massachusetts - South Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As of tonight the streetlight on the pole on South East Street opposite Mill Lane is out.
