  • 11 Lincoln St New Haven, CT 06511 - New Haven
    Almost daily reports of very serious incidents involving pedestrians crossing at this intersection. Speeds are well in excess of the speed limit, and drivers (even buses, police vehicles, public vehicles, etc.) regularly ignore the crosswalk. Also, drivers get impatient when bicyclists need to make turns onto Lincoln. Traffic calming measures are needed here. Perhaps even a stop sign is warranted.
  • East Rock Park -- Playground New Haven, CT - East Rock
    The playground at East Rock Park (College Woods) is heavily used but for as long as I can remember, the latches at the two gates have never worked. This ain't good, folks. It's a safety issue for the kids who play there and a peace of mind issue for the parents of the kids.
  • Orange St And Bishop St Intersection New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Bishop-Hine
    It's very hard to see whether or not cars are coming up and down Orange St when trying to cross from one side of Bishop to the other. Is there potential to have a traffic light put here?
  • 648-652 Orange Street New Haven, Connecticut - Bishop-Hine
    I thought I got a city communication saying that street sweeping was supposed to take place THROUGHOUT East Rock over the last couple of weeks. The Orange Street bike lane (heading south or "inbound") between ~Edwards Street and ~Humphrey Street is a mess: it is full of sand and gravel and is in immediate need of a cleaning. It is currently dangerous to ride on! Please escalate the street sweeping schedule here.Thank you.
  • Sachem And Winchester - Dixwell
    With the canal-trail becoming more and more used, and the intersection here (Sachem at Canal, just past Winchester) being an important access-point to the trail, it is dangerous that this is a three-way intersection with STOP signs on only two out of the three directions of travel! It seems to me a no-brainer to make this a Stop sign for everyone.
  • Trash Archived
    55 Pearl Street New Haven, CT 06511, USA - SOHU
    Do the trash/recycle collectors REALLY need to come at 5:30 in the morning? For a year now I have been ripped from my sleep by the obnoxiously loud trucks and the shouts of the workers. I can't stand it anymore.
  • 671 Orange Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock

    Dear New Haven Transportation, Public Works, and Public Safety,

    The Orange street bike lane north and southbound from Trumbull St. to Willow St. is a death trap. I made the mistake of trying to commute to work on bike and had to swerve potholes and debris the entire time while worrying about traffic, buses, and poorly parked cars. This was the most unsafe ride I have ever had, anywhere - and this was supposed to be the major north/south biking artery of East Rock.

    At one point, I had to try and jump a pothole and my rear tire didn't make it causing a flat tire and slightly bent rim. I am mad about my expensive commuter bike, but honestly, mostly just relieved I didn't tumble into traffic or hit my face. Some of these pot holes are more than 6 inches deep. A pothole for a car is an inconvenience with the possibility of tire/rim damage; a pothole on a bike however is a major safety concern- people have been killed like that.

    All roads in East Rock are in horrible shape coming out of a long winter, understandably it will take some time to address this issue everywhere. But please, please, fix the bike lanes first.

    If you are looking to commute on bike, strongly consider taking a bus or walking until roads are improved. New Haven City officials, please try riding a bike in one of these bike lanes and reporting back.

    I will follow up later with photos

  • Intersection Of Cold Spring And Livingston Streets New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    There have been countless accidents at this intersection (and near accidents). We desperately need speed humps, a stop light, or other traffic calming measures to make this a safer intersection for all the children walking to schools and parks.
  • English Drive New Haven, Connecticut - Cedar Hill

    The Wilbur Cross Boy's and Girl's Soccer Teams practice all summer long at Rice Field but the Goal Nets are removed, there is no field marked out and there are no benches or bleachers to put their stuff on.

    Especially given the fact that Soccer is the world's most popular sport and that the Wilbur Cross Soccer Teams have existed far too long on relatively miniscule budgets compared to other sports and with relatively substandard and historically unsafe facilitie...can they please be provided with at least a marked out field and the two Soccer Goal Nets to practice over the Summer months with?

  • 325 Mansfield St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Prospect Hill
    I walk up and down Mansfield St. at least twice a day, crossing Division Street and Munson/Hillside in the marked crosswalks. Even when I have begun crossing and am well into the middle of the street, cars blast through the crosswalks at 30 to 40 mph within 1-2 feet of me. Never once has a car stopped for me to cross at either intersection. Even when I was on crutches, no one cared. It is illegal for cars not to stop for pedestrians. If the police observed these crosswalks for an afternoon in unmarked cars, they could issue hundreds of tickets -- and perhaps the behavior of New Haven's drivers would finally change.
  • 188 Canner Street New Haven, CT 06511, USA - East Rock
    The scaffolding has been there for over 10 years and now is endangering The community. Pieces of rusted scaffolding have been found on the sidewalk and the school playground. Do we have to wait for somebody get killed until LCI seriously stop this insanity.
  • Edgerton Park New Haven, CT - Prospect Hill
    Tonight we found a sweet, shivering dog in Edgerton Park, and reported it to the police, who took the information so they could get in touch if the owner called them. The person who took the dog home posted on Facebook, and within a few hours the owner was found, and the dog went home. A happy ending with a caveat ... the owner had reported the lost dog to the animal shelter, but the shelter does not send a list of missing dogs to the police when it closes for the day. Could that become part of the shelter's procedure? It would cost the amount of an email, and perhaps seconds of work.
