Notified About

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 5 Upland Rd Cambridge, MA 02140, USA - Neighborhood 9

  • Clifton Place Cambridge, Massachusetts - North Cambridge
    Cambridge Housing Authority's (CHA's) redeveloped Jefferson Park (JP) is now being occupied. Clifton Street, which is one way south coming out to Rindge Ave has been extended into JP as a one way extension that loops around and exits JP heading north onto Rindge Ave (making left or right turn with just a STOP sign) with a new name Clifton Place (?). These are two new intersections with Rindge Ave and ISD had issues temporary occupancy permits without any proper street signs or traffic signs in place.
    The sidewalk on the south side of Rindge Ave is heavily used by children going to/from the Peabody Elementary School and Rindge Ave Upper School. These children will be going back to school on 9/4, in just about 3 weeks, using Rindge Ave with two new, unfamiliar intersections in addition to nearby Jackson Place on the east and another road exiting from Brickworks Condos on the west. Not to mention new residents who maybe new to the neighborhood and are not used to the students' foot traffic.
    For the sake of children's safety, please coordinate efforts of all City departments involved and CHA to make sure all safety measures are in place (street signs, traffic signs, cross-walk striping, school crossing guards to name a few) so that the children will be able to negotiate these new changes safely.
    Also. please ensure the traffic light at Clifton Street/Clifton Place are timed properly for the children to cross safely.
    Thank you for your expedited action on this critical safety issue.
  • 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).
  • 194 Us-3 Cambridge, MA 02138, USA - Cambridge Highlands
    As you can see on Google maps and the map provided to mark the issue, there is a pedestrian path people can use to get to the movies or Danehy park without the obnoxious detour of walking down to the lot enterence and then back up. Unfortunately, this short cut offers no way to easily get down from the ledge the path ends in. Some people have added their own steps over time, but they keep getting removed. If there is any way we could have this or the unofficial path to the north of it made a little more friendly to people with poor balance or jumping skills, I know a lot of people would appreciate it! It was suggested multiple times during the last round of participatory budgeting but never made it on the ballot.
  • 515 Concord Ave. Cambridge, Massachusetts - Cambridge Highlands
    Two trucks parked on top of the sidewalk and bike lane at Chico's Sunoco Station.
  • 50 Garden St Cambridge 02138, United States - Neighborhood 9

    The May use full lane sign is kind of ancillary because you have to use the full-lane there...it’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

  • 131 Pemberton Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - North Cambridge
    Three lights on the basketball courts on located on Pemberton Street are not functioning.
