  • 168-180 Pearl Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    High demand for bike parking on Pearl St but not a rack in sight so folks are hitching up to whatever they can find. Photos taken Saturday 2015-06-06 around 12:30 all from the same location. Given the high pedestrian volumes through here an on street bike corral is likely an ideal solution.
  • Starr Farm Road Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    It has become apparent by recent NNE conversations that there is confusion regarding the stop signs on the bike path. Some people feel that the stop signs only apply to bicycles and pedestrians have the right of way. Pedestrians walk into traffic and bikes often ignore the stop signs. Maybe an additional sign explaining that the stop signs are for everyone on the bike path? Would appreciate some clarification on the matter. Thank you.

    The right lane should be right OR straight. Most traffic goes left or straight, so it takes many light cycles to move cars through the intersection. Allowing cars to go straight in the right lane would move way more cars.

    Still here.
  • 32 Rose St Burlington VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    A resident of 32 rose street has been setting up a sidewalk sale every single day - weekday and weekend - right on the sidewalk from about 11am to 5pm every day. I can understand a single yard sale or sidewalk sale every now and then, but it appears to be his daytime business. If something is this frequent I would think it would need to be permitted. It is the source and site of many loud conversations, and may feel intimidating to neighbors and pedestrians. personally i find it unsettling and at times disruptive (he has had some loud swearing discussions). can someone please check in on what is going on and decide if it is permissible?

    Please move this rack to a better location where access isn’t blocked by a tree & cafe seating. It is difficult to access & underutilized. It would also be very helpful if it was reversed so bikes could be loaded from the street side. Bikes are not allowed on sidewalks downtown & the current configuration requires a user to get their bike up onto the sidewalk, back down into the rack, and then reverse this process which is a challenge for many folks.
  • 389 Riverside Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    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.
  • Snow Plowing Archived
    298 S Winooski Ave Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    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).
  • 365 Riverside Ave Burlington VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    On a weekly basis vehicles are parking and blocking access to the Riverside multi use path. Cyclists and pedestrians (people) must revert to the green belt or the bike lane (road) to pass.
  • 436-448 College Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    The College Street Bike Path ends at the intersection of College and South Prospect. It is very hard to activate the left turn signal to turn from College St onto South Prospect when using a bike. Since this is the end of the bike path and many bicyclists will turn left it would make sense to mark this area like what has been done at the exit of Trinity Campus on Colchester Ave at East Ave. Please place the marker as far to the left as possible to help bicyclists avoid vehicles trying to get around them.
  • 56-88 U.S. Route 2 Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Lots of debris in the bike lane at the intersection with Brookes ave, plus a bunch of broken glass on the block between Brookes & Loomis. The whole length of this bike lane could use some street sweeping.
  • 1204-1208 North Ave Burlington, VT 05408, USA - Burlington Electric
    150+ new units built across the street from a north ave bus stop. Kids, elderly, lots of folks playing frogger everyday crossing here. I've seen many close calls.
