421-481 Asylum Street Hartford, Connecticut - Downtown
A single streetlight + utility pole is being installed in the shoulder of Asylum Street when all the other new poles are being installed in the newly extended sidewalk. The area under the railroad bridge is the width of the new street and this pole further constricts the road and will prohibit a bike lane from being added in the future. Even if this is what the plan calls for - cant we move it? This pole endangers anyone entering the city from the west end via Asylum or Farmington. There is plenty of space for this pole on the sidewalk.
The playground is full of trash and completely gross. The trash is not only attracting flys there was two dead rodents in the middle of the play area. I can't believe that the city doesn't clean this area it's such a nice play area for kids but in its current state completely appalling.

This is pretty much THE pedestrian gateway between the CBD and Bushnell Park. Like other heavily walked intersections in the city, this one needs an "ALL WALK" in the rotation. Instead you get stuck on a median!
