  • 1 Belmont St Cambridge, MA 02138, USA - Watertown
    Would be nice to have a giant neon sign further back in Belmont St. warning folks that the right lane no longer goes left. Probably about 40% of traffic takes a left from the rightmost lane, which is dangerous for people trying to follow new traffic pattern

    2 Watertown Street Watertown, Massachusetts - Watertown
    The pedestrian crossing light in this intersection (Watertown/ Galen/ Nonantum Streets) is too short in length of timing. A healthy adult has difficulties in crossing in time, and this is a cross walk that is used by Perkins School for the Blind students, senior citizens and families with small children that often cannot cross the street in time during the light. We would appreciate your investigation in changing the timing of the lights. Thank you!

    Traffic in bike / bus lane again
  • 1 Belmont Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - Watertown

    The new right turn only lane from Belmont St. to Mt. Auburn St. is absurdly useless.

    First, there's no advance warning, so by the time drivers notice it, it's already too late for them to change lanes so they just barrel on left.

    Second, there's no incentive for the drivers to not turn left. The dashed striping guides them through the intersection (though few manage to stay in their lane correctly) into their own lane awaiting them on Mt. Auburn.

    Third, turning from the left lane only and staying in the left lane on Mt. Auburn has a disadvantage of getting stuck behind cars turning left to Star Market or Homer Ave. If not that, then having to change lanes anyway if not turning left on Aberdeen.

    While waiting for the pedestrian lamp this morning (not even at rush hour), I counted 12 vehicles go through the right-turn-only lane. 11 of them went left - 4 at a high rate of speed, 1 ran a red light.

    The lanes from Main Street to North Beacon street are not marked anymore. Folks in the first lane (or second lane if you consider the left only turn) towards north beacon street tend to move directly in to second lane of north beacon without giving indicators thinking the second lane of Main Street is right only for Charles street. Can you please have correct road signs before someone bumps in to each other?

    394 Mt Auburn St Watertown 02472, United States - Watertown
    I was crossing the street near Hosmer to pick up my child from school today. Cars would not stop. Some veered around me (and another pedestrian) and one came very close to hitting me. It was terrifying. In the absence of a real traffic light, please add a flashing pedestrian light at this crosswalk. It's the closest crosswalk to the school for those going home from work toward the square on the 71 bus. Rush hour and school pick up can coincide, and when it starts getting dark at 4, everyone is at risk on this fast moving four lane road. This would be even more dangerous for children, elderly, anyone with mobility issues.
  • 8 Swetts Ct Watertown, MA, 02472, USA - Watertown
    Swetts Court is basically impassable. Poor plow job and residents having to shovel their snow into the middle. I got stuck this AM getting out to work, although I had shoveled and cleared my area yesterday. Several other cars also stuck today. Right now, I am parked on the street as I cannot risk driving in to Swetts Court to my driveway. For tonight, without an improvement to this situation-I have asked a nearby plumbing business to park in their lot. Please send a plow or other solution to make Swetts Court passable for the tax paying residents who live there!!

    Pot holes at both storm drains
  • Jackson Rd Watertown, MA, 02472, USA - Watertown
    Jackson Road is peppered with potholes and borders on undriveable. This road needs to be repaved entirely, not just patched every time someone posts on here. There are far too many potholes to patch this properly. PLEASE repave this for everyone's sake.
  • Boyd Park 42 Jackson Rd, Watertown, MA, 02472, USA - Watertown
    Multiple large potholes on the entirety of this section of road
  • 200–230 Grove St Watertown 02472, United States - Watertown
    There are multiple potholes on Grove street between Coolidge Ave and Mt. Auburn st. Every time there is a storm, new potholes form. There have been multiple repairs to potholes on this road. It needs to be repaved.
