Notified About

  • 1298 Miller Avenue Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    This crosswalk (across Miller between Pomona and Wesley) lacks pedestrian crossing signs. It is the only crosswalk on Miller between Maple and Main Street that lacks the signs. Also, the crosswalk is on a hill, so the signs will make it more visible in both directions.
  • Hazardous Crosswalk Acknowledged
    625 S State Street Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    Sometime last year, the city painted lines for a crosswalk on the north side of the T-intersection where Madison hits State Street. Hundreds of law students and undergraduates use that crossing every day. We are grateful for the crosswalk, but there have been unintended hazards as a result. I have personally witnessed half a dozen incidents since last semester where students almost get hit by cars at night because it is not obvious that it is a crosswalk. If the city could install crosswalk lights, that would make the area much safer for students and drivers. Thank you for your time and consideration!
  • Nixon Rd. Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    There is a crosswalk on Nixon Rd. near the entrance to Clague middle school. I've noticed that there is no street light illuminating the cross-walk, making it very difficult for drivers to see pedestrians waiting to cross or already in the cross-walk when it is dark in the early morning or in the evening. Drivers very often fail to yield to pedestrians here and I have had some near misses with cars. Please consider adding a streetlight here to make pedestrians more visible before an accident happens!
  • 301–379 W Washington St Ann Arbor 48103, United States - Ann Arbor
    Huge potholes at the bottom of the hill. Today I was going down the hill and didn’t see it in time, popped my bike tire, and was almost flung off my bike. This has got to get fixed.
  • Crosswalks Acknowledged
    434 South State Street Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    I am a U of M employee who works in Angell Hall. Twice a day or more, I use the crosswalk going across the street from 435 S. State St. to 434 S. State St. For the past month or so, cars have regularly parked in the crosswalk, with impunity. Consequently, cars passing by down respect the crosswalk nor look at the pedestrians trying to cross their. I have been about to walk across that crosswalk 4 or 5 times in the past month, only to have to stop suddenly when a driver whizzes right by without stopping at the crosswalk. Something needs to be done here, or else a pedestrian is going to be, God forbid, hit and killed. Either enforce the crosswalk and the prohibition to park on it, or eliminate the crosswalk. Either one or the other. Please address this as soon as possible.
  • 918 S 7th St Ann Arbor 48103, United States - Ann Arbor
    Bike lane in both directions on 7th is full of ice and snow while the road is clear. Please make it a priority to clear this bike lane as it is a major cycle commuter throughway. In fact, the city made this bike lane safer with a double painted line. I know it will warm up today, and most likely melt. However, it would be much safer for cyclists to have a clear, usable bike lane on 7th to depend on. Please make this a priority when clearing roads of snow and ice. Thank you

    Huron And Glazier Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    This is a dangerous intersection for bikers, pedestrians traveling north on the sidewalk. Because cars travel south on Huron, drivers at the intersection of Glazier only look left. They also do not stop at all at this stop sign, let alone look for pedestrians. On today's commute and 3 days ago in broad daylight I would've been struck by another car while bike commuting. This is the norm. I have learned to yield to the cars bc they never pay attention, and sometimes I have to knock on the car to get their attention. I have reported this issue several times and made suggestions such as painting a crosswalk sign (though cars routinely stop IN the crosswalks), a look for bikers/pedestrian sign, etc. What we want to prevent is needing another ghost bike to remind drivers to stop and look for pedestrians/bikers. This is crucial esp with the shorter daylight hours. There is already a problem in broad daylight wearing a bright yellow reflective jacket.

    111 S 4th Ave Ann Arbor, MI 48104, USA - Ann Arbor
    Someone in Haymaker's kitchen keeps emptying the grease from their fryer into the alley storm drain on Monday mornings. It has happened three weeks a row! It stinks and is very gross. There is a grease receptacle right the by their kitchen door but for some reason it keeps being put in the alley drain.
    I live right next to this drain and it is very offensive. Please help!

    378 N Maple Rd Ann Arbor, MI 48103, USA - Ann Arbor
    Introduce right turning lane.
    With N Maple now being converted to a single lane in each direction, please convert the rightmost of the northbound lanes before the Dexter intersection into a right-turn lane. This will allow vehicles to start aligning in single file in the long stretch of road between Vets Park and Dexter Rd, long before the intersection, instead of having two full lines of cars trying to weave together in 15 yards just after. This will improve traffic flow and decrease incidents and irritations.
  • 4101-4125 E Huron River Dr Ann Arbor, MI, 48105, USA - Washtenaw County
    The entire stretch of Hogback starting about at Clark Road intersection and going up to Geddes is completely deteriorated. Potholes are entirely unavoidable and *huge*.

    844 W Huron St Ann Arbor, MI, 48103, USA - Ann Arbor
    I cross the W Huron St and 7th St intersection everyday and I am worried one day I will get run over because the drivers do not seem to pay any attention to the pedestrians. Because the intersection is at an angle the drivers turning onto Huron St from 7th do not pay any attention to the pedestrians crossing Huron. Yesterday I started crossing Huron right as light turned green for me and had to wait in the middle of the intersection, because the cars turning into Huron would not stop for me. The cars were going to fast that if I tried to walk I was scared I would get run over. I ended up having to run as the light for me turned red before I was able to finish crossing Huron. One time a driver started yelling at me when I was crossing on the green light and they were the ones supposed to wait on me to cross. There is a school near by and I worry about the safety of the kids I see walking to and from school as well. I feel like the intersections is just getting more and more dangerous and the drivers drive way faster than the 35mph speed limit, and so there should be something done (additional light to people turning left, speed meter, another speed sign) to make this intersection safer.
  • 1455-1923 Hogback Rd Ann Arbor, MI, 48105, USA - Washtenaw County
    Multiple potholes on Hogback between Clark and East Huron River Drive. They are dangerous and difficult to avoid.
