    142 Massachusetts Ave Boston, MA 02115, USA - Fenway-Kenmore
    Bike lane completely blocked by constant stream of cars, Boston Police drive by without doing anything. Please fix this before someone is killed.
  • 500 Commonwealth Avenue Boston, MA 02215, USA - Fenway-Kenmore
    Hotel at Kenmore does valet parking and always blocks the bike lane. And, always at least 2 cars stopped in the bike lane at Kenmore block, usually 4-7 cars stopped or parked in the bike lane.
  • 137 Massachusetts Avenue Boston, Massachusetts - Fenway-Kenmore
    The bike lanes along Mass Ave near Boylston are constantly blocked. Calling Boston Police (or traffic enforcement) is clearly not a long-term solution, as these lanes are constantly used as two-minute parking for pickup and drop off all day. We need year round protection of these lanes, seasonal flexposts are clearly not enough.
  • 702 Commonwealth Avenue Boston, MA 02215, USA - Fenway-Kenmore
    This is a City of Boston truck illegally parked in the bike lane on Comm Ave this morning at 8:18a. Plate MB2530. This is unacceptable.
  • 789-789 Commonwealth Ave Boston, MA, 02215, USA - Fenway-Kenmore
    Comm Ave at University Road and then onto the BU Bridge is a tragedy waiting to happen. There's a right turn only lane to go onto University road that people ignore. After that is an unprotected bike lane that cars go into to turn onto the BU bridge. 3 lands attempt to turn into 2 but it is quite a mess. It's only a matter of time that a major crash occurs. At the very least the bike lane should be curb protected the full length between University Road and the BU Bridge. There should be other considerations as well. The bike lane coming from Carlton goes into this. Cars and bikes coming from Carlton are also at risk of collision.
  • Boston University Bridge At Commonwealth Avenue Boston, Massachusetts - Fenway-Kenmore
    Prior to the Comm ave bridge reconstruction project this summer, southbound traffic coming off of Boston University bridge had multiple "no left turn" signs when approaching Comm Ave. I notice now frequent cars stopping in the left lane coming off the bridge to turn left directly onto Commonwealth Ave. Is left turn now allowed at Comm Ave or is the absence of signs an oversight? See attached image from 2014 where there were 3 "no left turn" signs, none there anymore.
  • 300 Longwood Ave Boston, MA 02115, USA - Fenway-Kenmore
    The manhole In the Longwood Ave and Blackfan circle intersection is sinking/ loose again. It has been repaired at least two times in the last two years. Currently, when trucks go over it the entire frame in which the cover sits is moving (horizontally). At the same time the frame has been sinking into the ground (vertically). Thanks. Note, 300 Longwood is the closest address on the correct side of the street. The problem area is where Longwood meets Blackfan.
  • 288-290 St Botolph St Boston, MA 02115, USA - Fenway-Kenmore
    This past Sunday afternoon I was stuck at a back up at the Broadway/Eastern Ave light because a Malden city worker had the right lane of Broadway blocked with a city truck while emptying trash barrels. First of all, are tax payers paying OT for city workers to work Sundays? are they so busy during the week they can't get the job done?? Also, a better place to park would have been on the Hess side, in the lot. Not on the street.
  • Damaged Sign Archived
    130-140 Massachusetts Ave Boston, MA, 02115, USA - Fenway-Kenmore
    Flexposts still missing on Mass Ave. These have been missing since at least February. When will these all be replaced!?
  • Pret A Manger 360 Longwood Ave, Boston, MA, 02215, USA - Fenway-Kenmore
    I've emailed boston 311 twice about getting bike racks installed on this super-wide sidewalk. Please let me know who to contact to get an actual response for this issue.

    George Sherman Union 775 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02215, USA - Fenway-Kenmore
    At the time of this report, there are three cars sitting in the bike lane with their blinkers going. This report isn't a request for enforcement (which is why I am not labeling it "illegal Parking"), is a request to fix the bike lane. As is, this bike lane is unusable because it is an open invitation to drivers to use it to pull over. This isn't a bike lane, it's a temporary parking lane, where anyone on a bicycle is expected to merge into fast (and impatient) traffic. I have been personally threatened by drivers (including an armored van driver!) for asking them not to park here. "I'm just going to be a minute." "Why don't you just go around." "No one is going to ticket me here." "F*#k off, mind your own business." Don't close this ticket and say "area clear". Fix this lane before another BU student is killed just trying to get around the Boston metro area. The longer you leave this, the more drivers will feel that they have every right to park here. I would like to be able to commute home without worrying whether I'll make it alive. Is avoiding flex posts here for plowing and delivery reasons worth my life?
