    Another bike lane obstruction in the same place as last time, right in front of the Draper Lab loading dock. Also, for the record, it appears that the loading dock did have space for the truck to park safely off the street.

    I called CPD, where a dispatcher quite rudely said "This is T&P's problem" and forwarded me to a very long phone menu tree. When I finally got through to an operator at T&P they were quite polite, and happy to send an agent to ticket, but had no idea of how to record this as yet another data point, so here I am doing that right now. Please, Obstructed Bike Lanes should be treated as a priority (but obviously not emergency) dispatch. I shouldn't have to listen to a long phone tree to report it, that wastes valuable minutes to get an officer to the scene to attempt to educate the vehicle's operator.

    Finally, yet again, I'm going to request that you do something, anything really, at this location to prevent trucks from obstructing the bike lane. Again, I'd love to see a simple experiment done with a few skinny, tall, orange traffic cones lining the bike lane. It's cheap, easy, and not permanent if it doesn't work. I see no reason why we can't try this out for a few days (unless it's heavy snow, of course!).

    Also, can we get an official "Who to call?" number, preferably just one number 24/7, so I don't need to remember if a particular office is open or not. CPD's non-emergency dispatch seems like the proper place for that, but probably not if the dispatchers are going to be rude to callers.

  • 1 Alewife Ctr Cambridge 02140, United States - North Cambridge
    This construction site uses these well travelled bike lanes for truck parking every morning and it’s a major hazard.
  • 1629 Cambridge St Cambridge, MA 02138, USA - Mid-Cambridge
    the snow from the bike lanes has been piled in one of the parking spaces on Roberts Rd. I would appreciate a schedule for when it will be removed as there is only a limited number of parking spaces available
  • Lot C Leonard Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02143, United States of America - Mid-Cambridge
    I realize it's early on in the snow storm. And we didn't even get that much snow. However the bike lane snow was plowed and piled into Leonard Av in a residential spot. This large pile of snow is blocking a storm drain as well. Given the flood warnings etc. this is not an acceptable practice by the bike lane plowing. Last winter this same practice occurred and caused flooding in the cross walk etc. in larger storms with parking bans it takes away from places to park on an already congested street because of all the parking lost during the cambridge street reconstruction/ redesign. This practice needs to be addressed asap. If they want bike lanes in the winter the city should spend the money to remove the snow. And not place it on storm drains and people's only place of residential parking on their street! I pay 25 dollars for a parking space each year a bike pays nothing. It's not unreasonable to ask for a space and a non flooded street. End rant
  • Alewife Station Access Road Cambridge, MA 02140, USA - North Cambridge

    Northbound of two-way (T station side) before one-way to Rte 2/Rte 16:

    Cars constantly use the bike lane here. I'm in the designated car lane every day and I see cars coming down this street or pulling out of the T station parking lot into the bike lane.

    The traffic is always awful here, especially now that there is construction on the one-way section going to the highway. HOWEVER, that is no excuse for cars to use the bike lane. I don't know how this can be fixed, but I really don't want a cyclist getting clipped -- or worse -- at this spot! Maybe some anchored flexible traffic delineators would do the trick?

  • 16 Trowbridge St Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - Mid-Cambridge
    There are delivery vehicles, moving trucks, uber/lyft cars and residents parking on the bike lane in Trowbridge Street on a daily basis forcing bikes to enter dangerous traffic. How/where can we submit a request to dedicate 2 or 4 parking spots in Trowbridge street permanently as loading zone? I think this is the only way to solves this dangerous situation in the long run.
  • 35 Cambridgepark Dr Cambridge, MA, 02140, USA - North Cambridge
    The same cars parked in this bike lane as are parked in the bike lane every morning! Why isn't there ever any ticketing here?
  • 980 Memorial Dr Cambridge, MA - West Cambridge
    Heading westbound on Memorial Drive in Cambridge and all of a sudden there are cars parked in the right lane. There are no signs to warn you about this and I see people _all_the_time_ swerving in the left lane at the last second. I am frankly surprised that I haven't seen more accidents there. Either put a sign up to warn the drivers in the right lane, or prohibit parking on that stretch of road.
  • 1501 Cambridge St Cambridge, MA 02139, USA - Mid-Cambridge
    Cars and delivery vehicles pose a perpetual danger to cyclists and motorists by using the bike lane as a temporary parking space. Not only do bicyclists have to merge into traffic, but vehicles often have to cross the stripe into oncoming traffic to go around the violating vehicle. Hazard lights shouldn't get you out of breaking the law and endangering your neighbors.
  • 35 Berkshire St Cambridge, MA, 02141, USA - Wellington-Harrington
    The earth walls of the foundation recently dug (and abandoned due to COVID-19) at 35 Berkshire St are eroding underneath the adjacent sidewalk (pictured) and parking lot access road. I don't know how close either are to collapsing, but it seems like a serious hazard.
  • 35 Cambridge Park Cambridge, Massachusetts - North Cambridge
    Uber and Lyft cars have been parking on the bike path outside of Cambridge Park Apartments in the morning and evenings. This is blocking traffic and making drivers drive on the wrong side of the road. The elevated bike path has only made things worse since the taxi cars now will not pull over and just park in the middle of the road.
  • 23 Cushing St Cambridge, MA 02138, USA - Cambridge
    Someone has painted parking stalls, lane striping, and directional arrows near the intersection of Cushing and Belmont streets.
