Notified About

  • 2-16 Kendall Rd Lexington, MA 02421, USA - Lexington

    The first 20-40 yards of Kendall Rd off Waltham St are almost impossible to drive without hitting (hard) several potholes.

    Any way to patch this?

  • 57-73 Hancock St Lexington, MA 02420, USA - Lexington
    I think is is very nice that the garden clubs plant barron roadside islands to improve their looks. Cudos. However, sometimes the plantings grow high and obscure vision to see oncoming traffic. Planting should be low and/or ground hugging. It is a safety issue.
  • 15 Preston Rd Lexington, MA 02420, USA - Lexington
    Caution sign to indicate sharp right curve going downhill on Preston Rd is not properly sited. It is on a telephone pole hidden behind tree branches. It needs to be relocated to its original place on its own pole at the top of the hill in the property of 18 Preston Rd. A major accident at 15 Preston Road hitting tree and totaling a car occurred January 2009 and nothing has been done about relocating the sign after repeated requests.
  • 2-98 Goodwin Rd Lexington, MA 02420, USA - Lexington
    The road at the entrance to Goodwin Road from Hancock Street is in bad shape with a number of very large potholes that have been there for some months.
  • 905 Massachusetts Avenue Lexington, Massachusetts - Lexington
    Manhole cover just opposite front steps at 905 Mass Ave on W side of street is not seated properly and makes a loud clanking noise every time a car drives over it. Very annoying!
  • Spring Street And Hayden Ave - Lexington
    The traffic detail Shire has hired on Spring Street only stops traffic (in all directions) to allow cars into or out of Shire. This was already a dangerous intersection which has gotten worse with this detail. At first the detail directed traffic for all movements, but now they only stop cars to allow access into or out of Shire. Cars on Hayden have much worse access to Spring Street, but more importantly, on several occasions cars from Hayden ave have lurched into Spring street expecting the officer to secure a turning movement for them after they stopped traffic for Shire, but the officer just goes back to their post.

  • Exit 30b Off Rt 95 Lexington, MA 02421, USA - Lexington
    Is this the town dump - no, you could have fooled me! The trash build has not been cleared for years, although someone recently chipped the fallen branches. The grass has overgrown, but the trash is still there especially on the driver's side.
