Notified About

  • Linnaean St & Raymond St Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - Neighborhood 9
    Ever since Garden Street became one way, Raymond has been inundated with cars, trucks, school buses, and delivery vehicles. Raymond isn’t wide enough to accommodate all this extra traffic, along with heavy pedestrian use and cyclists. Someone is going to get seriously hurt or worse unless something is done about this. Cars need to be directed away from Raymond into larger streets. At a minimum, we need to have no turns onto Raymond from 7-9am and 5-7pm.
  • Raymond St & Walden St Cambridge, MA, 02140, USA - Neighborhood 9
    Of 50 cars to traverse this 4 way stop intersection at a park corner, only 10 cars came to a complete stop. 20% compliance is an opportunity for serious injury. Some cars did not come to a complete stop even when children were crossing the intersection. This is typical when I do this counting.
  • 56 Concord Ave Cambridge MA 02138, United States - Neighborhood 9

    I am standing in front of my condo building on Concord Avenue and I am very startled and frustrated by the traffic lining the outbound street between Huron Ave. and Craigie Street.

    Currently, there is a solid line of cars, buses, delivery trucks, and construction vehicles up and down the street.

    This is not a suitable traffic pattern and has an immediate negative impact on me and my neighbors on Concord Ave.

    I am supportive of bicyclists and all modes of transport, but cannot believe that this is the best scenario for our fair Cambridge. This is not a good look for our city or the planning that goes into traffic upgrades / projects.

    I hope that we can find an alternate solution that supports all.

    Respectfully submitted.

  • Huron Ave & Rc Kelley St Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - Neighborhood 9
    The traffic on Huron going from Concord to Garden is now backed up for several hours a day (due to the change on Garden St). Signals at both intersections need to be adjusted so that the Concord and Huron intersection is not blocked by the line of cars (which makes people start maneuvering around and thats unsafe for pedestrians and bikers alike). And the lights at Huron and Garden need to be adjusted now that there are so many more cars approaching on Huron, it can take 4+ light cycles to get from Concord to Garden between 2 and 7 pm.
  • 1702 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge 02138, United States - Neighborhood 9
    The crosswalk light at Mass Avenue and Garfield is out and has been out for two days. A lot of families rely on this traffic light to cross for school.
  • 60-64 Walden Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - Neighborhood 9
    Pedestrian crossing missing across Walden St at the intersection with Richdale Ave on the north side of the intersection. (The other three pedestrian crossings, two across Richdale Ave on either side of Walden St, and one across Walden St on the south side of the intersection, are present.) This is a particularily popular intersection for commuters walking to Porter Sq. Adding the fourth pedestrian crossing would increase safety of existing crosswalks by preventing vehicles from being parked close to the intersection along Walden St, thereby increasing visibility. It would also make corner store more easily accessible, increasing number of visitors, making the neighborhood livelier and more pleasant. Already existing speed limits, speed limit sign on Walden St approaching the intersection from the north, length of plateau on commuter rail overpass, and already existing all-way stop signs ensure that vehicle operators coming from north can safely yield to pedestrians at proposed crosswalk.
  • Hurlbut St & Linnaean St Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - Neighborhood 9
    This car one Hurlbut St had its front end knocked off and is the 3rd car to get visibly dinged at the mouth of Hurlbut and Linnaean in the last 2-3 weeks. Cars fly off Linnaean to cut down to Mass Ave and often never look to see a car coming up Hurlbut—the street is too narrow to accommodate two cars, so a car must pull over and yield to the other. The incidents of near collision, amount of traffic and incidents of reckless speeding have been on the rise. Is there something in the Traffic toolbox to calm this — a one way to Martin would make sense but then that just shifts the scenario to other streets. Restrictive access during rush hour is another idea as is police monitoring.

    193 Concord Ave Cambridge MA 02138, United States - Neighborhood 9

    Waiting for bus at Concord and Huron Traffic backed up in all directions But that isn't exactly what I am reporting

    In 10 minutes I have observed seven adults on bicycles riding on the sidewalk on either side of Concord and five riding against traffic on the westbound side of Concord

    I think these bicyclists have by their actions demonstrated that the Garden Street changes are not what they want They are also not what the neighborhood wants

    Two more on the sidewalk as I write this And my bus is late, undoubtedly stuck in traffic the Garden Street changes caused

    If the bikes don't use it and the neighbors don't want it let's get rid of this failed experiment

  • 91 Sherman Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - Neighborhood 9
    The traffic signal at this location no longer working. It is always just flashing yellow light.
    It is now very hard to cross the street to the Danehy park. There is also an elementary school here : (the Cambridge Montessori school).
  • 5 Upland Rd Cambridge, MA 02140, USA - Neighborhood 9
    snow in bike jug handle
  • 44 Garden Street Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - Neighborhood 9
    I was riding my bike at night and wiped out hard after my front bike tire collided with a flexi-post *stump* that wax protruding two inches from the road. I went over the handle bars and injured my back. The flexi post had been hit and disappeared weeks ago but the stump the held is major hazard especially for bikers at night. Please call at 617-596-2704 with any question. My name is Dan Smith. I’m the Senior Minister at First Church in Cambridge and live at the church parsonage/rectory at 44 Garden Street. I had been a supporter of the bike lane for bike safety reasons. This and other incidents (esp scooters using the bike lane in the wrong direction) have changed my mind.

    The May use full lane sign is kind of ancillary because you have to use the full-lane’s a big pinch point for cars with is tight against the first parked ca. It’s dangerous too as cars go to fast there, you need sharrows and you need an earlier warning sign about bikes shifting center

    We can do better here this is the most dangerous part of the stretch
