Notified About

  • Washington St./Walter Hannon Parkway Quincy, MA - Quincy

    Okay....I'll try again. First I would like to say that the new Walter Hannon Parkway is great for circumventing quincy center. It looks great as you continue to landscape the area. Thank you for a job well done.
    So, heading north on washington street and trying to take the left onto hannon parkway where there are no green arrows to allow traffic to take that left onto hannon parkway. When the light does turn green everyone tries to go at once and there is a bulge of traffic which very often comes to a standstill with cars stuck in the intersection after the light has turned red....very frustrating. If the northbound traffic was allowed to go left on a green arrow before the southside of washington street is allowed to advance, I think traffic would flow a little easier. (It is easier to go straight right INTO quincy center than take the left onto hannon parkway which is not what you want to happen) I thought one major reason for this parkway is to keep traffic out of quincy center?
    Also, the area in front of the quincy rehab./nursing home, even though there are two signes on the two telephone poles out in front "no parking anytime" there are ALWAYS cars parked there in front which causes the east flow of traffic on hannon parkway to "squeeze" left before the light on washington st.. This causes many near misses in traffic accidents. Anyway, I sent an email previously about this issue and do not think that it went through. Thank you for looking into these two problems.

  • 435-447 Hancock Street Quincy, Massachusetts - Quincy

    Note: video and additional photos will be added in the comment section.

    I was cycling on Hancock Street and was almost hit by a car. The driver (license plate: Massachusetts 7FC720) decided to squeeze between me and an oncoming vehicle, passing me within inches.

    Aggressive drivers make Quincy an unpleasant place to live and work in. I have seen Cambridge Police and Boston Police pulling over numerous drivers for aggressive overtaking. We need more traffic enforcement in Quincy, especially on Hancock Street. Signs (R4-11) to remind drivers that "Bicycles May Use Full Lane" anywhere can help alleviate the problem.

  • Washington St And Mcgrath Hwy Quincy, MA - Quincy

    There is a 4-way intersection, and all four ways have "No Turn on Red" signs. This leads to a lot of unnecessary waiting and people behind in the rightmost lanes getting angry. Many times, people take the right on red anyway, since the lights are taking far too long, and no traffic is coming. Solution?

    At the same intersection, going westbound on Washington (toward Quincy Center), it almost looks like there is a third lane to turn right (in front of Bagnelli Auto Parts) when it's actually a break-down lane. Drivers do not understand this and use this lane as a right turn lane. This causes near-accidents all the time! Drivers in the ACTUAL right lane go to turn right, and someone is there, to their right, that should not be.
    Solution? How about painting it more clearly marked, with diagonal stripes? That would make it clearer to drivers that there is no lane there.

    Potholes of varying depth on Marion Street from Winthrop to Grandview. Many pedestrians use this street to get to the Wollaston train station. Tree roots sticking up through sidewalks make navigating to and from the train station a tricky undertaking.
