Notified About

  • Mountfort St. between Essex and Carlton. Lots of potholes in the "bike lane" area.
  • Harvard St And Longwood Ave Brookline, MA - Brookline
    Harvard Street changes from a two lane sans bike lane to a single lane with bike lane at the corner of Longwood Ave. Motorists in the southbound lane ignore the sharply narrowing roadway, using the bike lane as an egress to the bottleneck. Cyclists attempting to enter this lane from the shared southbound lane are pinned to the curb and frequently hit. I was hit today, and have been hit in the past by unwary and aggressive motorists. Please redesign this roadway before someone is killed.
  • 1432 Beacon St Brookline, MA 02446, USA - Brookline
    This area needs a "no standing" sign. Everybody double parks, or stands idle while waiting for a passenger to shop/pickup. And with the left turn lane onto Marion, the traffic is therefore pinched down to one lane (e.g. can't "flow around" the double parked or idling car). During rush hour in the afternoon, this can back traffic up very significantly.
  • 91-105 Harvard St Brookline, MA 02446, USA - Brookline
    Drivers who are north/east on School/Aspinwall get a green light before the south/west bound drivers do--presumably to permit left-hand turns onto Heath. However there is no left-turn arrow on the light fixture and IT IS NOT APPARENT to north/east bound drivers when the south/westbound light turns green.
  • 450 464 Harvard St Brookline, MA 02446, USA - Brookline
    Cars do not stop for pedestrians going across Harvard St., there should be a yield to pedestrian sign to reduce the chances of a pedestrian accident.

    255 Kelton St Boston, Massachusetts - Allston-Brighton
    Lots of potholes and rough pavement around here.
  • 1-21 Dummer St Brookline, MA 02446, USA - Brookline
    Please add contra-flow lane and signage for bicycles on the 20 feet of one-way road here. This will allow bikes to avoid going through the big, evil intersection by the Landmark Center.
  • 149 Babcock St Brookline, MA 02446, USA - Brookline
    Babcock street is in rough condition. Cracks & holes. Pavement surrounding manhole covers is elevated causing pretty big bumps.

    197 Mountfort St Brookline, MA 02446 - Brookline
    I ride my bike on this street everyday to work and I have to go on the sidewalk for parts of it (but even the sidewalk has cracks and holes). It is completely unsafe for a bicyclist to go down this street.
  • Pothole Archived
    910 Boylston Street Brookline, Massachusetts - Brookline
    On the Route 9 roadway, eastbound near that address there are several holes which have been unaddressed for about two years, forcing motorists to swerve to avoid them. There are two holes by the entrance to the Chestnut Hill Benevolent Association, and another about 200 feet further east.
  • 60 Harvard Street - Brookline
    Rental property adding a 2 car driveway surrounded by 4ft+ retaining stonewall. There is no driveway sidewalk cut in. Is there a varience requirement to do this work? What are the legal requirements for this work? I have an in ground pool very close to where the work is being done and im concerned about the shoddy and unlicensed work being done.
