    152-154 Oak Street Natick, Massachusetts - Natick
    Traffic coming southbound on Oak Street needs better signage of speed limit - it is an industrial area just before this and cars go 45+ and then enter a dense residential area. Several cars (at least 10 since this winter) have gotten flat tires in front of our house (152 Oak) because they take the turn too fast and hit the curb. My father was almost hit on Wednesday and we have a 17-month old daughter and have to walk on the sidewalk right there to get to our cars. Please do something before someone is seriously hurt!

    Lamplight Cir/Hartford Street Natick, Massachusetts - Natick
    I have two school age children that have taken to riding their bikes to school during the nice weather. I have some serious concerns about their safety when it comes to crossing Hartford street at the end of Lamplight. Their is a crosswalk their with no light system to warn cars speeding up the hill/blindcorner that it is even there. I have watch my kids cross this intersection many time since schools start and it is a terrifying experience. They sit there for 2-3 min. Till cars coming towards Framingham on Hartford finally realize they are there then the cars coming up the hill blow by them like they don't exist. They usually find an opening when there is no cars coming from the Framingham side and head across. I hold my breath every time hoping that no car comes from the Framingham side as I have just watched them speed thru that intersection time and time again as my kids sit waiting to go. Many parents in our large double courted community won't allow there kids to ride their bikes or even walk to school or friends house because of this issue. I want my kids to be independent and get exercise and just be safe enjoying riding their bikes. I'm not sure this is the right forum for this issue but there needs to be a better crosswalk signal system put in place here so kids in our neighborhood can bike and walk in safety.

    1 Pond St Natick, Massachusetts - Natick
    Cars are turning left from Pond Street onto Route 27 and it is extremely dangerous for all parties involved. Too much traffic in Natick these days and cars always traveling in all directions. This just needs to become a right turn only lane.
  • 1200-1262 Worcester Street Natick, Massachusetts - Natick

    Good afternoon -

    I am a regular user of the ramp from Speen street onto RT 9 Eastbound. It probably is no news to you that there are frequency accidents on that merge as well as daily congestion resulting from people coming to a complete stop and not matching the ongoing traffic as they merge.
    The reason is that there is not enough space to merge and have incoming traffic at the same time.
    If I may, I have two thoughts in mind to remedy the issue, and Natick's DPW can readily implement them at very little cost:

    1. Solution 1: shortly prior to the bridge on RT9 Eastbound, draw appropriate lines to encourage the traffic to move to the left, to accommodate for the traffic merging from Speen onto RT9.

    2. Solution 2: shortly after the bridge on RT 9, draw arrows on the right lane, telling drivers on RT9 to move to the left lane due to merging traffic ahead. A bit like arrows one sees on the MassPike when the merge lane ends.

    Thank you for looking into this. It's a major problem with a simple solution that can be implemented quickly.

  • 55 South Main Street Natick, Massachusetts - Natick
    The "Open" flag outside the business obstructs the sidewalk and must be walked around to avoid being hit by it.
  • 1336 Worcester St. - Natick
    2 town street lamps in front of Sherwood Plaza have not worked in years. The lamps have been replaced but it may not be receiving power. This is on Rt. 9 east approaching the Speen St. offramp.
  • 12oxford Street Natick, Massachusetts - Natick
    On the corner of Oxford and Oak St., there is a home with trees and leaning fence sections that cause a severe blind spot to pedestrians and vehicles. Vehicles on Oxford turning onto Oak in either direction have to pull into oncoming traffic to see if cars are coming. Accidents are occurring yet the repairable blind spot remains. Someone is going to get severely injured. Please pull the fence and trees back on both sides of this intersection before someone is killed.
  • 2-8 Florence Street Natick, Massachusetts - Natick
    In March there were no parking anytime signs put on the entire street of Florence st. This has become a major inconvenience for residents. There were rarely any cars parked on Florence st prior to the signs being put up. The general consensus of residents of Florence street is that the signs were put up a result of moving trucks being parked over night that were moving tenants out of the 58 North street apartments.
    All the streets that run parallel to Florence street ie: Franklin St, Sawin St, and Tibbets St either have no signs, 2 or 4 hour parking signs. I would like to request that these signs be removed or changed to no overnight parking or 4 hour parking like the rest of the signs in the neighborhood.
