  • Main St & Route 16 Intersection Medford, MA - Medford
    Trying to come off South St or Route 16 onto Main St is like trying to perform a suicide mission each time! You have to peel out and burn rubber at full speed then slam on your brakes in the center like a sitting duck and then peel out again to get across the other half of street all while oncoming traffic is speeding towards you and purposely go faster if they see you even attempting to get across the street!! Try doing this while driving over all the potholes and getting stuck and ricocheted like a pinball all over the place. I'm SHOCKED this intersection has not been improved!!

    This strip of street is like one giant pot hole... all the way up to Museum St.
  • 104 River St. Cambridge, MA - Cambridgeport

    The right lane inbound to Central Square is littered with potholes and patches that cause a symphony of screaming suspensions from tracker-trailers, dump trucks, and flat beds. Pedestrians, bikers, and residents in this area have to brace themselves while speeding traffic shutters by.

    Calling Public Works and getting a "work order" multiple times apparently does nothing. Does anyone else hear me on this one?

  • Most Of Common Street Watertown, MA 02472 - Watertown
    Common Street is a mess! We need to get this street fixed. Between cars parked on the street and people needing to swerve around potholes every 5 feet it's just an accident waiting to happen
  • Mountfort St. between Essex and Carlton. Lots of potholes in the "bike lane" area.
  • 229 Parker St Newton, MA 02459 - Newton
    The Parker Street bridge over Route 9 is in pretty rough shape. So many small potholes that it's almost like off-road driving.
  • 24 Green Court Newton, MA 02458 - Newton
    This is a small, dead end street made of gravel. There's massive potholes which need to be filled or paved. Potholes are so deep, scrapes the bottom of my car. Can the small street be paved?
  • 175 Prospect St Cambridge, MA 02139, USA - The Port
    The potholes on Prospect street are so bad! It is the only north-south street that directly connects Inman Sq to Central Sq. It is appallingly bad. There are so many patches on the road that it is near impossible to bike down it. Also, the lack of a bike lane is ridiculous. Why don't they just have traffic going one way, each way, with bike lanes on the side, rather than a one way going south, and a two lane going north? It doesn't make sense. Repave and paint bike lanes, please.
