  • 562 Waverly St Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham

    In front of St Tarcisius Church there is a crosswalk which many commuters use during rush hour. Now that it is dark in the evening and the crosswalk is poorly illuminated, drivers seldom stop for pedestrians and I have seen or been involved in several "close calls" in the last few weeks. Also, given the rush hour traffic that backs up on Waverly St, pedestrians often have to walk out in between stopped cars, making it less likely to be seen by someone coming the other way.

    Until such time as a long-term solution (such as better lighting or a more prominent crosswalk treatment) is in place, can we at least get a vertical reflective marker that sits in the middle of the road so drivers are more aware of the crosswalk?

  • 861 Edgell Road Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    Dropped in for a coffee & donut @ Honey Dew Donuts @ what we believe is 861 Edgell Road. The donut shop was in a plaza named, "Village @ Nobscot." Always believe that when food is being sold, must have restrooms available. This facility closed the restrooms for everyone including paying customers. When approach about this the clerk said she could not let us use the restroom & we would have to take it up with the boss. We ask to speak with the boss & she said he/she wasn't there. Told them we would be speaking with the Health Department to clarify the matter. Could you please advise whether or not this is a law? If so, this Honey Dew should be made to comply. This is the first Honey Dew that I have encountered this problem. Could you please respond to Would appreciate it, especially if I am mistaken regarding the law in this matter. Thank you again for your consideration in this matter.

  • 120 Woodland Dr Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham

    At the service plaza on the Westbound side of the Mass Pike, in between exits 12 and 13, there is a yellow gate in the back. This is presumably used by authorized personnel only.

    However, recently I have noticed a substantial uptick in cars simply "cutting through" this area to avoid traffic and/or avoid paying a toll. This has resulted in increased traffic in the Woodland Rd/Audrea Rd/Florita Rd neighborhood. Often times this is late at night and neighbors of this quiet area aren't happy with the uptick in unauthorized use of that cut through.

    Who's jurisdiction is this, can the gate be closed and locked aside from official use, and what can be done to enforce this? Thank you!

    The white lines on a number of roads are painted out at the edges on wide roads. This creates number of issues. On some it's not apparent if there are one lane per side or two. Cars end up staggered. In this section cars tend to park up on the sidewalk blocking pedestrians unnecessarily. For cyclists the area to the right if the white line is unnecessarily small an vehicles pass unnecessarily close.
  • 200 Arlington Street Framingham, MA 01702, USA - Framingham
    Arlington st, primarily a residential st with lots of families and small children has had a increasing number of 18 wheelers and car carriers traveling this route. It is now mainly trucks driving up and down this street at all hours. Concerns have been expressed by numerous neighbors on the amount of large trucks on this road and the safety concerns it brings to the people who reside there. The trucks are traveling to the businesses in the Arlington Heights area where there is a warehouse and a couple other businesses. There is another road on the other side of these businesses that is non-residential and would be more appropriate for truck routes. What can be done about this concern as it has become more and more of an issue over the last couple years. Thanks.

  • 562-564 Waverly Street Framingham, MA 01702, USA - Framingham
    This is a busy crosswalk with a lot of the Framingham commuters parking at St. Tarcisius parking lot and other nearby businesses. Every week I always see a close call of a pedestrian getting hit by a car. I myself was almost hit 3 times just this year by cars failing to stop once I'm on the crosswalk. Drivers see you crossing, but just continue driving. In one recent occasion I was almost halfway through the crosswalk. There is currently a sign off to the side by the Chinese restaurant, but it's not doing much. Something needs to be done before someone actually gets hit.
  • Saxonville Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    Timing of lights during evening rush hour 5-7 pm is really backing up traffic heading north on Rte. 126. Yesterday I waited 3 cycles of the light, I believe 4 minutes or more, as traffic backed up, Issues: 1) green light time for traffic going north - heaviest direction during rush hour - way too short compared with green light times the other way 2) Traffic was backed up because the 1st light was green but 2nd light was red due to A Street light being green, even though there were no cars on A Street that needed a light. Can someone please adjust the evening light timing so traffic doesn't back up like this? Thank you.
