Burlington VT Public Works
Intersection Of Howard Street / St.Paul St. / South Winooski Ave. Burlington, Vermont - Burlington ElectricThis intersection is a route to school (Edmunds) for kids in the Five Sisters neighborhood and other South End neighborhoods. This is a complicated, 5-way intersection with no Walk /Don't Walk signals. Would like to see pedestrian improvements or a crossing guard assigned.
307-311 Colchester Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington ElectricI think "sharrows" would be a help on Colchester Ave from where the bike lane ends in front of the hospital all the way to the Winooski Bridge. A bike rider gets dumped into two lanes of traffic when the bike lane ends and needs to take the lane to keep going straight to Winooski. Once through the India House/East Ave intersection there are parked cars on the side (rider at risk of getting doored) and the street is very tight especially with all the bus traffic. A bike rider can easily maintain traffic speed on this busy road since it is downhill. If a rider leaves enough space to the car in front of them to be safe cars tend to "think" they are faster then a bike and accelerate up to 40, cross over the center line and then whip back in front of the biker and slam on their brakes even when a rider has taken the lane. There are "bikes may use full lane" signs along here but there is a lot of space between them and they tend to be ignored since they can be way off to the side behind parked cars. Getting some bike stencils every couple hundred feet down this section would help tremendously to give the driver visual cues that the bikers are allowed to be there since the sharrows will be directly in the drivers view. What can be done to make this happen? Seems like a quick, cheap and easy improvement for the time being. I have seen a huge increase in bike commuters on this section of road and also a huge increase of unsafe passes.
716-722 Pine Street Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington ElectricIt would be great to have a crosswalk between Queen City Brewery and the South End Kitchen/Zero Gravity complex.
South Willard Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington ElectricI think it's time solve the Willard Street bicycle problem. Sharrows, better signage, a dedicated bike lane; something needs to happen before someone gets hurt.
603 Riverside Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington ElectricThe Riverside multi-use path essentially stops at the traffic light leaving the Community Health Center parking lot. When bicycling and trying to get from the Riverside multi-use path to North Winooski Ave heading downtown, you either have to use the walk signal or enter the road and take a left from Riverside onto North Winooski in the road, which can be quite difficult with intolerant car drivers not letting you over. It'd be helpful for the traffic light leaving CHC to be sensitive enough for bikes to earn the green light to leave the CHC lot and go straight across onto North Winooski Ave. Right now it doesn't trigger for just bikes and I've sat for multiple light cycles waiting for it.
145-163 College Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington ElectricWhy is a waffle vendor truck allowed to sit right on the grass and tree roots of City Hall Park behind the Irish pub and almost touching a tree?! This is a public park where we treasure our green space and don't want to see it damaged by a vehicle!
172-198 Lakeside Ave Burlington, Vermont - Burlington ElectricWhat a horrible intersection. Unfortunately I go through it nearly every day. As a pedestrian I dance to avoid being run down. As a cyclist and automobile I get the chance to park in the left lane. I also have the benefit, while pushed in the left lane, of seeing lots of dangerous maneuvers fun confused drivers pulling in and out of Feldman's Bagels. The greatest thing is this is all right under the nose of the public works building.
99 Billings Court Burlington, VT 05408, USA - Burlington ElectricSunken sidewalk has turned into a swamp. Serious drainage issue that has gone unaddressed for years.
2 Leddy Park Road Burlington, Vermont - Burlington ElectricPoison ivy, Leddy Park, in area between soccer fields, racket courts, upper parking lot, playground and basketball court. The area is heavily used by local families, people walk through this area, and children chase balls into poison ivy infected areas. On weekend when there are soccer games, the area is packed with children. In contrast, an area next to Leddy arena that is rarely used is overly groomed. This area needs growth of trees and brush to prevent erosion of the soil which is causing the shoreline to erode. Trees are falling into the lake. There are dangerous sand cliffs that could give way. Needs to be roped off with warning signs, and growth allowed to recover to help stabilize the bank. Meanwhile, mowing needs to be done in the area of poison ivy. A grandmother told us her grandchild had been hospitalized with ivy skin poisoning after coming to watch a soccer game. NPA and Graffiti team painted a huge mural on back of old theater and requested a few picnic tables in the area to create family-friendly atmosphere.
93 South Winooski Avenue Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington ElectricAn smelly eyesore on a nice clean city. This reflects poorly on all of us. Clean the parking lot stairs.
Riverside Ave Burlington, Vermont - Burlington ElectricTurning onto Riverside Ave from the Winooski Bridge, there is no Yellow Light, i have ran several Reds due to them changing with no warning.
