Mystic River Route 16 West of 93

  • 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.

    I just witnessed another terrible crash at the intersection of Main street and South Street, because there are non functioning lights, the blinking lights DO NOT WORK! Residents are risking their lives every time they go by there whether by car or on foot. IT IS TIME YOU TAKE ACTION! PUT a traffic guard, a state policeman but DO SOMETHING! Are you waiting for a fatality before you do anything? We don't need another traffic study, we need a SOLUTION IMMEDIATELY! It has been overdue!

    Multiple loose boards on the foot bridge, with a badly lifted board at the south end.

    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.

    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.

    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

    I have seen too many close calls at the intersections at South Street, Main Street, and Mystic Valley Parkway in Medford, Ma. Please fix these lights before a serious accident occurs. Thanks.

    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.

    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

    Hello -- I understand that "something" is going to happen to make the traffic patterns on Main St. and South St. safer at these intersections. I wonder when there will be enforcement of people who exit 93, then shoot across Main St. to re-enter Mystic Valley Parkway, thereby bypassing all the backed up traffic on MVP? I know there is a sign there indicating that people cannot go straight across, but I see it every morning. And this morning at 7:30 am when I was on my bike, in the bike lane crossing the MVP entrance, I was nearly hit by a lime-green "Cube" which pulled straight across from the 93 exit to re-enter MVP. Thanks.
  • South St Medford 02155, United States - Medford
    Terrible intersection. Need traffic lights that work to actually direct traffic versus flashing in all directions. Have almost been in and witnessed many accidents here.
  • South St & Main St Medford, MA, 02155, USA - Medford
    As one of the most dangerous intersections in Medford (and maybe all of Greater Boston), it is unbelievable that at least 4 street lights at the four corners are all out. I cross this intersection every night around 6:30 and I have come close to getting hit several times. It's critical that these lights work before we have a fatality.
