  • 865 Main Street Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 4
    I'm writing to request a traffic lighting change to help with more efficient traffic flow. On the intersection of Main & Winter street there is a set of traffic lights. The flow from the outside streets goes as follows:
    1) Green: Main Street; Red: Forest Street; Red: Winter Street
    2) Green: Winter Street; Red: Main Street; Red: Forest Street
    3) Green: Forest Street; Red: Main Street; Red: Winter Street
    Since there is a significant amount of traffic that occurs on Main Street, I'm writing to request that there be a slight delay when the light is green for Main Street (on the side coming from Melrose towards Malden). This will allow vehicles on Main Street (heading towards Melrose) to make a left turn onto Winter Street since there is no protected turn light signal located on this corner. This will significantly decrease congestion during rush hour since many vehicles head towards Oak Grove station during that time. Currently, the traffic is typically so congested that only 1 or 2 cars have time to turn before the light changes. When traffic is quite condensed, no cars can make the left turn.
    Thank you for your time.
  • 12 Autumn St Malden, MA 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4

    Re: issue 6510319. Since the city won't allow us to comment on other posts, I've had to open a new one. The poster suggested making Autumn a one way. ABSOLUTELY NOT. For those of us who live on Autumn and the adjacent streets, making us sit through multiple light cycles at Winter and Main just to get home around the corner would be completely unfair. The idea has been raised before. Residents have been quite clear in their opposition.

    The poster is however absolutely correct that the area has become unacceptably dangerous. I've seen the same reckless maneuver s/he describes more times than I can count. But the issue is a TOTAL AND COMPLETE LACK OF TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT at that intersection and more generally, city-wide. We need ENFORCEMENT of traffic laws against the people committing the violations, not rules that punish residents on top of everything else they are already being subjected to by commuters using our neighborhood as a shortcut. I have NEVER seen a traffic stop on Autumn. Literally NEVER, despite probably a violation a minute every day during rush hour.

    Last evening walking back from the Malden T station along Florence Street, I found that the sidewalks were treacherous. I, and most other pedestrians, walked on the street. (The same has been true in past years.) Some of the unshoveled location is city property (bridge near the Y), other property is the zip car parking lot on Florence and several private homeowners. This is a well travelled pedestrian route that should have a high priority, in my opinion. Thanks.

    Large pothole plus chunks of asphalt in the road.
  • Intersection Of Main St. And Mountain Ave Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 4
    The crosswalk at Main St and Mountain Ave is signaled by the antiquated method of red and yellow traffic lights lighting up simultaneously rather than a crossing light. I see cars fail to stop at the signal routinely as families, the elderly, and children try to cross the streets. I don't think the drivers even realize what the signal means. This intersection is a main crossing point for the people travelling to the Early Learning Center, YMCA, and senior housing. I think an actual crosswalk light would be helpful. Also, a signal that beeps when the walk light is lit would be useful here as multiple visually impaired pedestrians make use of this crossing in their daily lives.
  • Winter St Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 4

    Any update on the intersection at main/winter/forest?? Last I heard it was referred to complete street but someone is going to get killed here. Between cars jumping the light on main and now today I was stopped at the light on winter coming up from oak grove. We were the first car at the light and car behind us (a white lift car, happened too fast to get a license plate) decided they couldn’t wait and swerved around us and speed through the intersection down forest st. I believe the walk signal was on but thankfully no was in the two cross walked he bombed through. I see other cars use the bank parking lot to try avoid the light. Now supposedly there is a camera near the funeral home but do the ever review it??

    I don’t know what the solution is but they have to take a serious look at this intersection before someone is killed.

  • Fairlawn Avenue Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 4
    There is some inconsiderate jerk who rides his extremely loud motorcycle around this neighborhood (Main st and Fairlawn, Wedgemere, Rosemont, Kenmore and Autumn) at the worst hours. He woke up the neighborhood this morning at 4 am and again just before 6 am. He usually heads left on Main st towards Melrose but sometimes heads into Malden. This is extremely frustrating and is interrupting quality of life in this neighborhood. I understand he’s allowed to ride his motorcycle but there have to be laws against making so much noise with it all the time. He’s too fast for me when I run outside to try to confront him. Can the police set up something to get a hold of him and explain that there are people with jobs in this area who need to sleep at night? I’m also sure that people with young kids don’t appreciate this jerk interfering with them getting a full night’s sleep. This has gone on for a while now, something has to be done.

    can you something about this insertion? cars don't pay attention to the no turn on red and the crosswalk is hard to see during the day because it is bent. thanks
  • 28 Autumn St Malden, MA 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4
    We need a traffic officer at the intersection of Autumn and Winter please. Traffic has been rerouted due to construction on Main. As a result, traffic is backed up down Autumn as far as I can see. Rosemont is backed all the way to Main. Autumn is in complete gridlock. Residents are stuck. There needs to be an officer to hold traffic on Winter so that traffic can clear Autumn. Thank you.

    I am wondering why the attached city ordinance is not being enforced
    SECTION 9.28 STANDARDS AND REGULATIONS
    C. PROVISIONS APPLICABLE TO ALL WASTE
    3. SCAVENGING
    No person, other than the city collector or an authorized representative of a private waste contractor, shall scavenge or remove waste which has been placed at the curb for collection.

    I find it unacceptable to have people doing this in our city.

    Thank you

    They're back. This row of Limebikes appear to have been placed and arranged by the company. They have positioned the bikes directly across from a tree cutout in the sidewalk. As a result, there is less than 36 inches of clearance. The ADA requires at least 36 inches of clearance. 42 inches or more is considered optimal. Malden is home to countless disabled individuals, including individuals confined to motorized wheelchairs, other mobility impaired individuals, and the visually impaired. For them a blocked sidewalk can be more than inconvenient. It can be dangerous. Beyond that, we all have the right to unobstructed sidewalks. So I guess now that spring has arrived, here we go again with this pet project that caters to a small group of mostly young able-bodied individuals at the expense, and in repeated violation of the rights of some our most vulnerable citizens. I am all for a sensible bike share program. But this just isn't that. Our infrastructure simply will not support a dump-a-bike program. These problems are precisely why Limebike and other companies like it have been thrown out of communities all over the country (and the world). Yet our city government welcomes them with open arms. Please don't tell me to report to Limebike. I am not a customer of their company. I have no relationship with them. I do not pay them taxes. I am reporting this to the city. Because it is the city that allows the company to operate. And it is the city that is responsible for maintaining our public sidewalks and ensuring access as required by law.
