Old East End - Burlington neighborhood

Notified About

  • 406 Colchester Avenue Burlington Vermont - Burlington Electric

    A new bike lane was painted on Colchester Ave going up the hill from the bridge. The lane is on the outside of the parking until near the top where it transition to next to the curb. In this "transition area" the signage indicates it is fine to park in the bike lane. Please move the No Parking sign down the hill to the start of the bike lane transition so cars are not parked in the lane.

  • 411 Colchester Avenue Burlington Vermont - Burlington Electric

    The signage on the Colchester Ave bike lane is such that it allows residents to legally park in the lane at the top of the hill. The no parking needs to be moved down the hill to the point where the bike lane transitions from outside the parking to the curb. There is a section as seen in the photo where the car is legally parked according to the signs but blocks the bike lane causing bikes to have to swerve out into traffic while going up a busy steep hill. PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW PARKING IN BIKE LANE!

    Sewer grate on the steep uphill section of Colchester Ave is not level with the road. This area is suppose to get bike lanes painted next week and this is directly in the bike lane on a very steep section. Please fix this so people on bicycles can smoothly ride over this area.
  • 100-198 Mulberry Ln Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    The rapid flashing pedestrian crosswalk beacon at Schmanska Park (the one just south of the park) disappeared awhile back. Is it going to be replaced? Crossing there in the dark during the winter is difficult, as cars do not watch for pedestrians without the flashing lights. I know there is another one just north of the park, but there is no sidewalk on the east side of Grove Street, and getting to it requires scaling snowbanks or walking in the road, also not safe in the dark.
  • 338 Colchester Ave Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    There is no way to avoid potholes on Colchester Ave. any longer- swerving to avoid one just puts you into the path of another one. I’ve almost gotten hit by people swerving to avoid potholes, and I don’t blame them considering how deep the holes have gotten. Why didn’t the months of roadwork fix this??
  • 414 Colchester Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Bike lane lines were painted on Colchester Ave in November and already the outer line of the bike lane has been worn away. Please repaint with something that lasts longer then 1.5 months.
  • 10 Chase Ln Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    Chase Lane has developed multiple tire eating potholes. The road needs to be regraded ASAP.
  • 329 Colchester Ave Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    Please add something to sit on at the bus stop at 329 Colchester Ave. People are constantly sitting on the ground, standing in sidewalk often for long period of time. A place to sit would be useful here especially for anyone with a disability that prevents long periods of standing. Thank you.
  • 6 Chase St Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    Large load of stone dumped all over road, crosswalk, sidewalk and bike lane at Chase St and Colchester Ave. Street needs sweeping.
  • 52 Chase St Burlington 05401, United States - Burlington Electric
    Cars parking on the north side of Chase Street where Chase Street connects with Barrett Street often block cars from turning on to Chase from Barrett. This occurs only around the small triangle park and when there are vehicles on Chase Street trying to turn on to Barrett. Neck is too narrow for two way traffic and parked cars. Recommend a NO PARKING HERE TO CORNER sign at least the same distance as prescribed for intersection stop signs?
  • 66-120 Grove St Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    I am writing about a serious traffic issue that has existed and has been ignored in Burlington for a number of years. With the emphasis on the Complete Street Plan to provide enhanced safe travel for all users, one of the most dangerous Streets has not been addressed.
    What is the plan to remove on street parking from Grove Street? I recognize the need this represents to residents, but under Safe Streets Program, safety should trump parking spaces which create an ongoing travel safety issue.
    Presently the existing on Street parking, beginning at the intersection with Barrett Street, represents a dangerous traffic hazard for both vehicles and bicycles. It is also used by truck traffic which compounds the problem. It has always been a heavily travel narrow street, but the danger has been increased by the added traffic created by the Bayberry Common Development. It is not unusual to see driver side mirrors on parked cars torn off. The road is very narrow and is compounded in the winter by the addition of snowbanks. With the emphasis on on making Burlington a safer city for pedestrians, bicycles and vehicles, why hasn’t the most obvious traffic hazard in the city been addressed?
  • 339 Colchester Ave Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    Misplaced yellow line causing cars to be hit. The center yellow line is to far to one side and does not leave enough room for a parked car and a travel lane. Multiple cars have been hit including two vehicles in front of 339 Colchester Ave Sunday night into Monday morning. Mirrors and car parts laying in the road. Please fix the center line.
