  • Interstate 794 Milwaukee, WI 53207, USA - Continental US
    potholes potholes and patches patching patches.
  • 815 E Locust St Milwaukee, WI 53212 - Riverwest

    Loud music you can hear inside your house half a block away, patrons who are loud and disruptive when coming and going - hanging out by their cars, shouting across the street & talking very loud outside (often vulgar), illegal parking by patrons AND staff. Litter all over the 800 block of Locust including liquor and beer bottles, "blunt wrapper" & cigar packages, bar napkins, broken glass (bar glasses or ashtrays), fast food garbage. Fighting & bumping car stereos outside, hanging out after hours (outside AFAIK), speeding & reckless driving, and who knows what else. Staff has been unresponsive and sometimes rude if confronted on these issues.

    I don't mind what sort of music they play, or what clientele they cater to as long as they are respectful to the neighborhood - so far it's NOT the case.

  • 800 E. Locust St. Milwaukee Wi - Riverwest

    I have seen at least 3 rear-end accidents in front of my store on the 800 block of E. Locust, traveling west just before the stoplight at Fratney. Either people can't see the light, don't know it's there, or simply don't pay attention. When traffic slows or stops before that intersection - POW ! People get rear ended.
    Two of the recent accidents were back to back, one day after the other, then another the next week.

    There was another near Holton the other day where the 2nd car ended up ON TOP of the first car !

    I don't know how to solve this really, aside from widening the street so that it's 4 lanes from the bridge all the way to Hopkins, but that won't happen, nor would I want it to.

    The speed limit is already 25, though no one realizes it and everyone goes 30+. Although I don't think speed is the problem as much as inattentive driving, and people not expecting traffic to stop at a minor intersection.

    If they took out the light at Fratney, it would probably just move the accidents closer to Holton, and result in more speeding on Locust.

    Warning signs would probably not be noticed or ignored. A flashing yellow light with a sign might help.

    I think the only solution that would really work would be to replace the light at Fratney with a larger, more visible light - the kind that hang over the intersection.

    One of the accidents the other week, the car hopped the curb. They didn't get too far - the right wheel was only about a foot over the curb.

    There are a lot of pedestrians on Locust - including kids and the stores on this block are pretty close to the street. How long before a car hits someone on the sidewalk, or crashes into a storefront trying to avoid an accident ?

    I doubt they'll replace the stoplight, but we at least need a "slow - stop ahead" sign or something.

  • 1655 S 1st St Milwaukee, WI 53204, USA - Clock Tower Acres
    DUE TO THE CONSTRUCTION ON 1ST & MITCHELL , CARS ARE SPEEDIND AROUND THE CORNER AND I PERSONALLY ALMOST GET HIT. I WAS CROSSING THE STREET WHEN I HAD THE WALK SIGN AND A CAR SPED RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME, WHEN I WAS CROSSING TO GET TO THE BUS STOP. THIS NEEDS TO BE TAKEN IN CONCERN FOR EVERYONES SAFETY.
  • 100 W Lincoln Ave Milwaukee, WI 53207, USA - Bay View
    Lincoln Avenue from 4th Street to Howell Avenue is full of potholes, crumbling pavement from past repair work and manholes that are 4 inches above street level. It should be replaced.
  • 401 421 S 2nd St Milwaukee, WI 53204, USA - Walker's Point
    2nd Street from near the Post Office Distribution Center to past Rockwell Automation has terrible potholes.
  • 1901-1999 N Warren Ave Milwaukee, WI 53202, USA - Lower East Side
    Residents in this area have been experincing random hit and run accidents over the last seven years. This even more complicated due to the Humbolt bridge being out. We have all experinced cars being damaged as well as pedestrians being placed in danger due to high speeds from the corner of kane and warren to the corner in front of ceasers park. We recommend that speedbumps and flashing lights are installed since this issue is nearing a decade of not being resolved.

  • 2408 S Williams St Milwaukee, WI 53207, USA - Bay View
    Stop signs at least one direction on these roads along Conway. People fly through here and don't slow down at any of the cross streets. Please, there are a lot of children playing in this area!
