6702-6884 Main St Stratford, CT 06614, USA - StratfordThe traffic light for the intersection of Rte 110 and the off ramp of Exit 53 Southbound on the Merritt Parkway needs to have the timing fixed to not allow traffic to get backed up at the light in front of Sikorsky's main gate. People are not able to use the Right-on-Green-Arrow at the exit ramp to go right onto Rte 110 during peak hours, which forces a lot of people to speed through the intersection to make the lights, or switch lanes with no notice after going into the wrong turn lane at the ramp to avoid the next light after the Sikorsky entrance where people turn left up the hill. It's a dangerous intersection that needs correcting.
2979 Main St Stratford, CT 06614, USA - StratfordThe new traffic lights and crosswalk designations at this intersection have made it very dangerous for pedestrians and vehicles exiting or entering the Little Red School. This intersection was already well known for collisions due to people over shooting and running the lights here, the fact that the new lights have been moved in the WRONG direction have exacerbated an already dangerous problem. The lights are now almost totally unreadable from BOTH driveways at 2979 and 2965 main street (The Little Red School). there have been 2-3 accidents here yearly and I myself was almost hit while walking across main street. In addition the new crosswalk painted designations were routed DIRECTLY into the driveway of 2965 main, supposedly for "wheel chair access"... if a car or worse an SUV is exiting this same driveway onto main street it creates a VERY VERY dangerous situation for an upright pedestrian in that crosswalk, never mind someone in a wheelchair who is 3 feet lower...
All in all this is a discracefull situation especially considering the local children who come and go on this property six days a week, The LEAST that can be done is to have 2 traffic lights installed on the existing installation facing the two driveways of The Little Red School of Art and Music. This would AT LEAST give the traffic exiting onto main street a chance to do it safely.
1566 W Broad St Stratford, CT 06615, USA - StratfordSpend one morning or evening at this intersection and you'll see why a left turn signal is needed at W. Broad & California/Knowlton. This is a huge problem! The intersection gets completely blocked, then when the light changes, no one can move...please vote to get this resolved!
1544-1618 North Ave Stratford, CT 06614, USA - StratfordThis section of North Ave off of Nichols Ave is the most awful section that has pot holes and patches of sections that have not been tended to.
Broadbridge And Canaan Rd Stratford, CT 06614, USA - StratfordIf you've ever come down Broadbridge you've been stuck at this light. There should be an arrow to turn left or the light should turn green for 30 seconds or more on the side coming from Boston Ave. If you want to turn left onto Canaan Road you can catch this light 3 to 4 times. People trying to turn here also cause the traffic to back up on Broadbridge, and often cut the light because they will get caught at the light again or risk turning in front of another car that always has to be in a big hurry to drive into the side of the turning car. This is such a dangerous situation.
353-401 California St Stratford, CT 06615, USA - StratfordHuge pothole on corner of California St. at intersection of Barnum Ave. and California St.
446-496 Barnum Avenue Cutoff Stratford, CT 06614, USA - StratfordThe light to turn into HomeDepot either needs to be extended for north bound traffic on route 1, or the arrow only turn needs to be removed. The amount of traffic going into HomeDepot on a weekend (and most afternoons) backs up to the point at which it blocks the preceeding intersection.
6911 Main Street Stratford, Connecticut - StratfordFor the traffic going south on Main Street the light at Oronoque Lane should turn red before the light at the parkway ramps. This would allow more room on Main Street for the employees exiting Sikorsky Aircraft.
305-319 Veterans Blvd Stratford, CT 06614, USA - StratfordThere is a sidewalk from Main Street to the Bridge
over Rail Road tracks by Marshalls / Home Depot.
Across street there are sidewalks for people who
take the BUS in front of WalMart-Home Depot.
From the Bridge to Marshall's entrance and beyond
the is NO sidewalk and POOR LIGHTING.
- It is a STATE ROAD!
- Pedestrians and Bike Riders could be hit?
- McDonald's + Movie Theaters nearby attract teens, who walk / ride bikes and poor who don't
drive, but depend on BUS.
This is a FATALITY waiting to Happen!
Warner Hill Rd Stratford, CT - StratfordThere is a large pothole that is more so a square shape. It has now spread to another area so it is more like two potholes side by side. Car tires can go directly into it causing large damage. It is also right before the hill to Main Street so cars usually tend to be going quicker as they are starting to go downhill and then will hit the hole without much notice.
Access Road - StratfordThe Access Road between Main and Lordship is a disgrace. It is full of pot holes that get worse each week.
205 Park St Stratford, CT 06614, USA - StratfordThey have been digging up Park St. since before winter. The street is so hard to drive on now. Also cars park on both sides at the end closest to the green. The road is too narrow. It makes it very hard to get by when cars are coming towards you in the other direction.
