Traffic light at this intersection is cycling out in three seconds for traffic entering this cross section via the Brooklandpark Blvd. Drivers sitting at the lights on Brooklandpark Blvd. are having to rush, bumper to bumper to get 3 cars through the light, while traffic on Chamberlayne have up to three minutes.
A pothole has formed since the replacement of a watermain directly beneath it that was repaired at the start of winter storm Jonas in the alley behind 2815 Hanes Avenue. Multiple reports to DPU have been attempted through SCF and multiple attempts at phone calls (none of them have EVER been answered after 20-30 minutes on hold.) All SCF tickets have been closed and the pothole has gotten larger since all previous reports. The pothole makes the alley hard to pass by cars with a very low clearance and it retains water which will begin to harbor mosquitoes in the coming months. Please fix ASAP.
The alley between Garland Avenue and Hanes Avenue is deteriorating badly. It's riddled with 3" to 8" deep potholes throughout. There have been several requests for alley maintenance dating back into 2014 and nthing has been done, it's almost impossible to drive through. Each rain makes it worse and Emergency and First Responders will have serious difficulty should there be a fire, health issue or police response needed. Just have someone from the City drive through it and you'll see. Please please please make this alley a priority and have it regraded and graveled. Thank you!
The timing of the traffic signal going in either direction on Brookland Pkwy needs to be reexamined for higher traffic volumes. Currently only three cars can successfully pass during rush hour. Many people run this light as a result.
Maintenance work processed on gas lines/meters in the summer of 2010 - workers equipment has destroyed the curbside. Erosion is occurring down into the roadway - storm water drains are being blocked. Requesting curbs be restructured.
I have reported this issue to the police department Sector 412 Chris Gleason, who forwarded to Robert Capocelli, who was suppose to look into the issue. That was Feb 13th, door is now wide open. Picture is from 2/28/2015

Alleyway non-passable or enterable depending on type of car due to multiple LARGE potholes. Also potholes are filling with water and they will soon become a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other insects and pests.
Tree on the south side of the property is dead. Large limb fell on the adjacent property, 2907 Barton Ave., during the last strong. Dominion Va. Power had to restore power. Requesting the owner of the property address the issue and have the tree removed. Tenants are not concerned.
