Notified About

  • Little Cresson St Philadelphia, PA - Manayunk
    I have never seen a street so much in disrepair. It is actually crumbling apart and looks more like a dirt road with rocks.
  • 8500 Lincoln Dr Philadelphia, PA 19144 - Manayunk
    This section was repaved a year or so ago, then they pulled the surface up a few months ago and have left it unsurfaced.
  • 5030 Ridge Ave. PHILA., PA - Manayunk
    overgrown weeds and eroded hill blocking sidewalk near ridge and main streets. people almost have to walk in the street to travel up ridge avenue. it will only get worse this spring/summer. very dangerous... and not HP friendly.
  • Green Lane To Shurs Lane To Ridge Ave Merge To Septa Transfer Philadelphia, PA 19127, USA - Manayunk

    The entire route beginning from Main street where cars are parked on both sides of the road and where the 61 (bus) travels....a cyclist takes their life every day.
    #1 Nobody behind the wheel travels speed limit (25mph) including SEPTA - - they go barreling down Main street from Green Lane to Shurs Lane to Ridge merge to SEPTA transfer, squeezing cyclists - pinning them either to a park car or squeezed by speed behind a moving car.
    #2 the approach to Wissahickon transfer station during a compute is deadly. Cars spontaneously pulling to the curbside to drop off people, SEPTA pulling in and out of the turn-around, cars not wanting to accommodate the bicycle, and people moving, gathering -running across streets for buses.... CRAZY, SCARY...it will happen .someone will get hurt badly -- or it will be fatal.

    Sharrows were put down early June - GREAT 1st step. Hoping step 2 and 3 will follow. Enforcement of travel speed and a solution to the disastrous Wissahickon SEPTA transfer station.

  • City Ave & Haverford Rd Intersection - Penn Wynne
    Need left-turn arrow on City Ave, north-bound lane at Haverford Ave/Haverford Rd. Lack of arrow creates back-up of traffic, and dangerous situation as many left turn vehicles turn ON THE RED LIGHT because they are sitting in the intersection when traffic light changes. I contacted PENNDOT about this a few months ago, with no response.
  • Schuylkill River Trail - Philadelphia To Valley Forge Philadelphia, PA 19127, USA - Manayunk
    SEPTA buses drive straight into traffic eastbound on Ridge Ave against the light. There are traffic lights here specifically to meter traffic and allow buses an opportunity to pull onto Ridge yet bus drivers routinely ignore the lights, stopping both lanes of traffic. Traffic heading east will have a green light yet the bus drivers expect cars to yield to buses out of their own sense of self-preservation. This causes backups during rush hour and is even more of a problem when there is snow or ice on the ground and traffic with the right of way cannot stop for the bus running the red light.
  • 249-265 Green Ln Philadelphia, PA 19128, USA - Manayunk
    263 Green Lane has been boarded up for years on an occupied block
  • Bala Cynwyd PA, USA - East Falls
    Coming off the ramp from the Schuylkill towards Kelly Drive/Ridge Ave the pavement is chopped up with no way of getting around the potholes having to merge with oncoming traffic from City Ave
  • Forbidden Road And Green Lane Philadelphia, PA - Roxborough
    On 7/21/11, Philly.com reported that someone was dumping the urine of cancer patients into Wissahickon Creek causing a radioactive hotspot that is very dangerous to human beings. Since then, I have heard nothing more about this threat despite three emails to the EPA and five to Curtis Jones, my city councilman.
  • 5201 Ridge Ave Philadelphia, PA 19128 - Wissahickon
    During rush hour, there's always a crowd of people trying to cross over Ridge Ave when they get off the train. Everyone ends up jumping out in front of rush hour traffic to get across. It would be nice to have a stop sign or streetlight here before someone gets hit.
  • All Of Manayunk!! Philadelphia, PA - Manayunk
  • Philadelphia, PA - East Falls
    joint on offramp always has a series of potholes and needs to be addressed
