  • 275 Flynn Ave Burlington, VT - Burlington Electric
    It's near impossible to cross the street here safely. With the increase in traffic on the way it really needs a crosswalk. The sidewalk already appears ready for it with the yellow textured ends. Can DPW spare a little paint?
  • 125 Battery St Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric

    Cross walk goes 'walk' at the same time west-east traffic light goes 'green'. Tons of pedestrians try to cross and only one or two cars make it out of College street. Takes many light cycles to move cars, plus pedestrians are frustrated because cars are trying to get through.

    Easy solution for this intersection: have all lights go RED once every few minutes and have all crosswalks go 'walk' for 20-30 seconds. Then back to cars. Rinse, repeat.. Everyone is happy.

    Public works please take action!

  • 408 Colchester Ave Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    When weather permits, please sweep the uphill side of Colchester Ave (top to bottom). There is currently 4 feet of soil, gravel, and trash from the curb into the road. Additionally, there are blocked drains.

    21–41 Sherman St Burlington 05401, United States - Burlington Electric
    Protected bike lane destroyed by plow. Only two of the flex posts left standing. All the others are at a 45° angle to the bike lane, bent to the ground creating a hazard for people on bikes.
  • North Winooski Ave Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    I counted 7 bicycles ( and 2 skateboarders) in 15 minutes going the wrong way down this one-way street, through the stop light at North and cutting off cars. If the city is going to spend tax money painting direction of travel arrows on these lanes, then they should be enforced. Calling the police doesn't work, and I have not heard of pro-active enforcement for bicycle violations ever in this city.
  • Snow Plowing Archived
    914a North Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Bike lanes on both sides from North St all the way to Plattsburg are totally buried, again. Please plow to the curb using the sidewalk plow. The section with no green belt needs extra attention and potentially the small sidewalk snowblower.
  • 156 North Winooski Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    This section of the bike lane is very dangerous because there is no icon indicating that it is a Bike Lane. Also the alignment shifts bikers far to the right which creates confusion among drivers and greatly increases the likelihood of a right hook collision in which bikers are hurt or killed. The sloppiness of the paint job indicates that even Public Works employees are confused by this poorly designed intersection. I suggest that the existing markings be removed and that a safe, properly aligned stripe be put in. It is also essential that one or more bike lane signs be included in the design. Otherwise this will continue to be a very dangerous corner.
  • Island Line Rail Trail Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Growing encampment North of Blodgett's just off bike path. Are we now waiting for another incident to occur?
  • 930-934 North Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    As a biker it would be wonderful to get the bike lanes swept along North Avenue. I understand that there is scheduled street sweeping in the Spring, but for those who use North Ave for bike travel at this time of the year it has become quite cumbersome. I have had two flats and fell once due to loose gravel. There is quite a build up of sand, rocks, and even glass. I would hate to have to deal with this for two more months on my daily commute.
  • 314 Pine St Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Below grade drain gate takes up most of the bike lane and is a spill hazard. Please smooth this out so it poses less risk.
  • Sidewalks Acknowledged
    32-34 South Union St. Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    The sidewalk outside of the house is cracked/caved in.
  • 148 N Union St Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    Please spruce up the wonderful bike lane barriers in the next couple of weeks . There are plenty to replace. It's going to be ongoing for a while to get this barrier to stick. Don't lose faith
