21 Medford Street Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville
Severe and extensive potholes near the railroad tracks on Medford St create a hazard for pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists. The potholes also create excessive wear-and-tear on vehicles. They also contribute to an uninviting and hostile atmosphere in the surrounding area and neighborhood. I would encourage the City of Somerville to move these potholes up on the priority list for patching this season.

The bricks should be replaced with smooth surface concrete so that everyone will be able to walk safely. My mother is handicapped and requires extra assistance when walking along this sidewalk, and has fallen in the past, and has witnessed others fall as well.

St James Episcopal Church has not cleared their sidewalks for 2 storms. The Clarendon side has over a foot of snow piled up, while the Broadway side is a sheet of ice from people walking on it. Yet the stairs to their church house are clear. This is a consistent problem...they think it's ok to only clear on Sunday.
The two left turn lanes on prospect street turning on to somerville ave are not clearly identified. When people turn left from the left most lane they almost ALWAYS change lanes mid-intersection into the right lane of somerville ave. Is it possible to painted dotted lines in the intersection indicating that drivers should stay in their lanes when turning left? As a driver and a cyclist I have almost been hit several times due to negligent drivers changing lanes mid-intersection.

The light southbound on Broadway at mount Vernon is not long enough these days. It only lets about 3 cars through when 10 cars are backed up. Light stays green for roughly 20 seconds. I honestly feel the green light needs to be 3 times longer. Traffic is getting heavier and will likely continue.
