Notified About

  • Something is seriously wrong with the roadway and/or the expansion joints on this overpass and the city should make it a priority to fix it. It's like driving over 15 jolting drops no matter what side you're driving on and it's only gotten worse this winter, no doubt because the road needs to be plowed. If the traffic isn't bad, take the extra time to stay below and avoid this overpass. Your suspension will thank you.

  • 119-135 Hyde Park Ave Boston, MA 02130, USA - Roslindale
    Asphalt has been clumsily dumped into places where there were once bricks along Hyde Park Ave in Forest Hills. This is unacceptable level of quality for a Boston neighborhood.
  • 3801-3807 Washington Street Boston, Massachusetts - Roslindale
    The crosswalk signal from the Arnold Arboretum to Forest Hills station on Washington Street in Jamaica Plain is stuck. Every light cycle is interrupted by it triggering to a red light and signaling a walk despite no one being there. This issue began about a month ago and did not impede traffic like this before this began. The light is used infrequently and should be changed to request only to keep traffic moving in a highly used area.
