  • 52-58 Prospect Street Quincy, Massachusetts - Quincy

    Is it normal in Quincy for hilly residential streets to be plowed with several inches of snow left on the ground?

    The attached photo looks downhill on a two-way street. The tread mark on the left side shows a rear-wheel-drive taxi failed to go uphill after moving aside to let an oncoming car pass. The taxi had to roll back downhill at the end.

    I called DPW but the man who answered the phone wasn't convinced that there was any problem with the plowing. He insisted that someone must have shoveled snow into the road. To me, it looked like the plow wasn't lowered enough when the plow truck came.

    Is this level of "plowedness" normal?

  • Litter Acknowledged
    166 Presidents Ln Quincy, Massachusetts - Quincy
    Significant amount of litter around the stairway/sidewalk between Burgin Pkwy and Presidents Ln. Noted by several neighbors at the May meeting of the Hospital Hill Neighborhood Association.
  • Highland Ave Brook St Quincy, Massachusetts - Quincy
    This has become a very dangerous intersection during Wollaston school morning drop off. 211 bus not helping as cars cut bus off..... no crosswalk, corner pavements are all unsafe
  • 1-11 Marion St Quincy, MA 02170, USA - Quincy
    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.
  • Brook Street And Newport Quincy, Massachusetts - Quincy
    This is the crosswalk that everybody uses to enter and leave the Wollaston T stop on the Newport Ave side. Apparently the button works on the far side of Newport (walking to the T) but DOES NOT WORK on the Wollaston T for those leaving the station. Can you please send somebody to take a look at it? Thanks!
  • Potholes Acknowledged
    284-298 Newport Ave Quincy, Massachusetts - Quincy
    Large/deep pothole located just outside of the Wollaston T station, near the crosswalk at the intersection of Brook St. and Newport Ave.
  • 205 Beale St Quincy, Massachusetts - Quincy
    The trash including dirty diapers in the toddler area of the school yard is the worst. My husband has cleaned up at least 2 bags of trash outside the toddler area recently, but it's out of control.
  • Beale Street At Greenwood Ave. - Quincy
    Watch area for Quincy, Mass.
    This is a busy intersection for walkers going to/from the Wollaston T and seniors who live in the senior housing in the neighborhood. Drivers constantly go through the red light to take a right on red and even left on red when the walk signal is chirping. It is very dangerous for walkers.
  • no street signs Acknowledged
    Goddard Street quincy, MA - Quincy
    there have been no street signs marking the streets, both on the hill and the flat half. i have called numerous times. waste of my time.
  • 301 Newport Ave Quincy, MA 02170, USA - Quincy
    This is right across the Wollaston MBTA station. People who parked on the right lane should be ticket. They are causing bad traffic as they are parked standing still on the right lane during rush hour. There is a No parking anytime traffic sign but people just ignore the sign while they are waiting to pick up the people who got off the train from Wollaston Station.
  • Washington St Quincy, MA - Quincy
    There is always a lot of garbage on the ground here, from the corner of Washington St and McGrath Hwy, going Eastbound, and around the corner to Bigelow St. Maybe it would help to have a garbage can on the corner, where the bus stop is, since people are always standing around. (It seems like there is way less litter at the Foster St stop up the hill, which has a garbage can and much more activity/people waiting for the bus.)
    The area on Bigelow St between the corner and past the High Grade Skate Shop is rife with litter and garbage, including household trash and cigarette butts. Does the City ever send workers to clean things like this up? It is absolutely disgusting.
    Also, this area on the corner of Washington/Bigelow always has shopping carts. The number of carts has increased in recent months, and the carts are not always the same (different stores, etc.), so it is an ongoing issue.
