Cambridge - All Neighborhoods

Notified About

  • Bike Rack Request Acknowledged
    441 Broadway Cambridge 02138, United States - Mid-Cambridge
    Can we get more bike racks at the Cambridge main library? The use of benches for securing bikes is inappropriate.
  • 2177-2201 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge, MA, 02140, USA - North Cambridge
    On morning of 10/22/18, left turn signal from westbound Mass Ave onto westbound Rindge Avenue was not working.
  • 23–99 Dickinson St Cambridge 02139, United States - The Port
    This new marking on Broadway has cyclists in the door zone it’s too narrow and it was so much better before when we had the sharrows because traffic in this area moves slowly ...people jump in and out between cars and cross the street in this commercial area, so to be pushed over into the cars is really dangerous
  • 1922 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge 02140, United States - North Cambridge
    Please repaint the crosswalks on Mass Ave near Porter Square. It’s been weeks since the road was repaved, and now holiday madness is upon us. It’s already too dangerous to cross the road, and it’s only going to get worse. The city is at risk of a lawsuit, or worse. The crosswalks need to be put in NOW.
  • 413-455 Main St Cambridge, MA, 02142, USA - Mit
    There is no longer a No Turn On Red sign from Main Street east to Ames St south. There has always been one in the past, but it was not reinstalled with new traffic lights. See Google Streetview: This is a high pedestrian area which should not allow right on red.
  • Pearl Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - Cambridgeport
    The major snow emergency routes throughout Cambridgeport (Putnam, Magazine, Pearl, Brookline) have barely been plowed! I am shocked not to have seen a snow removal vehicle since early Friday morning. Compared to other parts of the city, nearby cities (e.g. Watertown) and Cambridge's historic effectiveness at ensuring streets are passable, the Cambridgeport neighborhood seems to have been forgotten this week. There will certainly be problems once school buses are trying to navigate tomorrow, and this should be anticipated and avoided.
  • 1 Main St Cambridge Massachusetts - East Cambridge

    In the Main St WB bike lane there are 2 sets of 2 pipe holes in the street that are very deep in the pavement and pose a serious hazard to cyclists, who are likely to be riding at high speed coming off of the downhill at the end of the Longfellow Bridge. They are unmarked and nearly impossible to see at night.

    Please smooth out the pavement around the pipes so that they are not so hazardous and mark them with bright colors so that they are easily visible to cyclists at night.

  • 820 Somerville Avenue Cambridge, Massachusetts - North Cambridge

    The temporary walkway on Somerville Ave adjacent to the commuter rail tracks lacks accessible ramps/detour signage and protection from cars on this high-traffic roadway directly adjacent to the Porter Square T station.

    The sidewalk is also closed across the street for the Target construction, but they have offered better protection for pedestrians and temporary ramps for accessibility.

  • Massachusetts Avenue And Cameron Ave Cambridge, Massachusetts - North Cambridge

    The overlapping signals, while I am sure are important to reduce vehicle congestion, are dangerous at this intersection. This morning my 3 yo son and I were inches from a bumper. We were in the crosswalk at the end of Cameron and a left turning vehicle from Massachusetts avenue onto Cameron screeched to a stop inches from us. The driver looked irritated that we were in his way. I am grateful we are alive. We had the crossing light. He had a green.

    We regularly have these types of problems crossing this intersection, but this is by far our closest call. We use this intersection to get to and from daycare. I dread crossing it.

    The overlapping signals during morning rush hour put pedestrians and vehicles in conflict. This is dangerous to do during rush hour when drivers are already rushed and frustrated. Signage warning to yield to pedestrians doesn't (and cannot) succeed in calming drivers adequately for this design to be safe.

  • 140-198 6th St Cambridge, MA 02142, USA - East Cambridge
    Livery driver. Ticket and separate infra please.
  • Market St & Windsor St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - The Port
    Photo of NW corner of Windsor and Market. It is less than a week since street sweeping, and food and trash are left on the street. It is thrown from parked cars by a few people. It attracts rats and raccoons. This is an insult to our streets and neighborhood -- children are playing in yards and schools and we want the environment to be safe and clean. We need the City to enforce the litter ordinance where owners don't take care of their properties. As this is a densely populated area, the small sweeping truck needs to come through several times between monthly sweepings. Debris behind parked cars and on sidewalks needs to be picked up. Many of us clean this stuff up but the problem needs more City attention. Thank you.
  • Aberdeen Ave & Mt Auburn St Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - West Cambridge

    On the NE corner of this intersection is a sign "Left turn on left arrow only". This sign is either ignored or not seen by a large number of east-bound drivers turning left on to Aberdeen. Walking across this intersection twice today I witnessed six vehicles make illegal turns, including two that honked and then angrily swerved around a vehicle obeying the law.

    Because of the ineffectiveness of this sign, this intersection is dangerous to:
    1. Oncoming (west-bound) traffic on Mt. Auburn
    2. Pedestrians crossing the north side of Mt. Auburn
    3. Drivers obeying the sign who are subject to angry behavior from those who ignore it.

    I believe a good solution is to add a Red Left Arrow that is illuminated at all times that the green left arrow is off.
