There are no pedestrian signals at Battery and Maple. This is a high volume intersection that needs dedicated pedestrian signals to allow people to safely cross including those that need extra time. This connects to the Burlington Bike Path on one side and should allow for better pedestrian experience. I had three cars cut me off trying to walk across this intersection. Two of them doing right on red.
the obstacles scattered all along north union street to delineate the bike lane pose Major hazards for motorcyclist. why are bicycle riders safety ahead of others in danger? Motorcyclists are people too.....if evasive action needs to be taken, a Motorcyclist will be hurt terribly, a bicycle rider can just bail off without a 500lb object landing om them...
This is the 2nd time I've reported this. Homeless people camped by the dog park. I walk past and the are drinking, swearing, have open fires, piles of trash and dogs that I'm sure are unregistered. Why is nothing done about this? It's disgusting, unnerving and illegal. I will not let my girlfriend walk in that area alone. Very bad message we are sending to our residents and visitors alike. So in a day or two, this post will be marked as acknowledged and absolutely nothing will be done and in the fall my tax dollars will be used to pay the DPW to clean up the mess they leave behind. Stellar job BPD and Parks Dept, stellar!
The surface of this is dangerous. There is a raised ridge and then an uneven dip below the road level. This is another example of what is inadequate road repair throughout the city. It seems inefficient and expensive to repair road patches 2-3 times. What is the DPW's policy on this? It's worth noting that these are often Water Department repairs...is there a different set of expectations for different departments of repair?
As of last night, the North Union street bike lane was impassable. I could tell that it had been plowed, but residential plows ruined the work by dragging deep rutted snow into the lane and leaving it there. Please replow the lane, and take code enforcement measures to end the sloppy residential plow work. Thanks!
There is almost always a truck parked on the sidewalk/bike path in front of Hal's Hitches and Welding. It's dangerous and inconvenient, as it requires cyclists to enter the street where there is no marked bike lane.
Northbound bike lane is reduced to foot-wide section. Bikes are forced to drive on double yellow against traffic.
Note: Sending a sidewalk plow down the bike lane at this stage is way too late and will achieve very little, because of the amount of snow and ice. This needs a big plow and should have been addressed during the parking ban(s).
