Mystic River Route 16 West of 93

Notified About

  • Main St & South St Medford, MA, 02155, USA - Medford
    WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE FOR ANYONE IN THE CITY to do ANYTHING about that intersection? How many months or years do we need to wait? How many crashes, before that intersection gets green/red lights? Is there a representative a senator we need to contact? I go by that intersection twice a day at 7 and at 4 and it is dangerous for cars or pedestrians. I do not have any other way to go to work. DO SOMETHING!!! I am so fed-up by the lack of action to fix any traffic issues in this city.
  • 71 South St Medford, MA, 02155, USA - Medford

    My husband fell off his bike after hitting a tree root and has cuts and bruises all over. The section of the pedestrian/bike path between South St. and the Mystic Valley Parkway has no lights for pedestrians/cyclists, and the walkway is in really bad condition with lots of exposed tree roots.

    Please put up some lights on any pedestrian/bike paths that don't have them. An unlit section of path is enough of a safety issue, but on top of that, the path itself is in poor condition. We are lucky my husband didn't injure himself worse.

  • Main St & South St Medford, MA, 02155, USA - Medford

    at the intersection of main and South there are least 5 street lights not working and I tried to submit this 5 weeks ago --some on Main -- one on the entrance ramp to 93/16 pole numbered 118 by the new police bdlg --- perhaps this one is State ?

    VERY dangerous to cross the streets here -- I often walk home from Car Rental place down Mystic Ave and have to traverse this intersection

  • Main St Medford, MA, 02155, USA - Medford
    No crosswalk at intersection of Main St. and Mystic Valley Parkway on/off. There is a multi-use path to the west, which dumps you at Main Street with no ability to cross safely. There is no crosswalk, and the nearest crosswalk at Riverside Ave is not only far, but also overshoots Clippership Drive, with no safe way to backtrack.
    There is no way for a bicycle to access the bike lane on Main Street from the west corner. It is also incredibly difficult to cross from the east side, since you are trying to go straight but are in the right hand turn lane for traffic.
    The traffic light is perpetually blinking yellow, so it does not allow for any breaks in traffic to allow safe passage for pedestrians or bikes needing to cross to access the multi use trail or bike lane.
    I've marked in the photo in red where it would be helpful to have a crosswalk. As it is right now it's incredibly difficult to cross as a pedestrian or person on bike, and it would be a great improvement to safety to add some sort of crossing so that cars know to look for these users.

    Cars go highway speeds down North street all day, and the speed limit is 20. It has been happening for many years. I recommend putting down one of those speed/traffic counters somewhere around 15 north street just so you guys can understand what I’m talking about. 60+mph all day
  • 1-99 Shipyard Way Medford, MA, 02155, USA - Medford
    Loose boards in footbridge. The raised portion of the footbridge over the mystic river has several loose boards along its length. The loose boards are not secured on either side and could easily be removed. They present a tripping issue now and a more severe safety issue if any should fall off the bridge.

    In this picture, I am in the left turn lane at the intersection of South Street and Main Street. I am at the stop line. You can see to the left that the height of the weeds totally blocks the sight line onto Main Street. Please trim these weeds as soon as possible at this very dangerous intersection. Thank you

    At least 3 of the planks on the footbridge between route 16 and Colleens are lose. Picture taken approximately in the middle of the bridge but there are others also

    Painted Stop lines are needed because new stop sign is not being seen by all drivers

    New Stop Sign is great but not everyone sees it. Some stop and some don’t. It is dangerous not to bring more attention to this traffic change.

  • Mystic Valley Pkwy Medford 02155, United States - Medford

    Please advocate on our behalf with either MassDOT, that owns these barrels, or DCR, who may or may not still on this section of road, to have whatever they are guarding repaired so they can be removed.

    When traffic approaches the traffic light here, people start making two lanes, but immediately have to reconverge when they come upon this. It’s an unsafe situation, and they have been there long.
