New North End NPA Steering Committee

Notified About

  • Drainage issue Acknowledged
    29 Leddy Park Road Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    On the east side of North Ave, there is no drainage from Leddy to the shopping center intersection. The whole bike lane is underwater (or under ice when the temps drop). This section was repaved last summer, but the grading/drainage was not addressed at the same time so the pooling is just as bad as it was before.
  • 152 Industrial Pkwy Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    The patches from 2016 water project have become major hazards, with drops of 6+ inches. Trucks, trailers, cars are swerving to avoid, and or bottoming out. There are multiple spots on the north south stretch between Edlund and Austin Drive. Please install signage to alert drivers and schedule early season repairs.
  • South End Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    This intersection is pretty dangerous for bikes. There needs to be asphalt to help cycles get across the rails.
  • 607-709 North Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Both sides of North Ave are in need of a sweep, which will probably require multiple passes to get a whole winter worth of debris out of the street. Especially in sections where potholes have been repeatedly filled with cold patch, the blown out patches and sections that have been ground down have all deposited enough material in the bike lanes that they're washboarded like a dirt road.
  • 70 Cherry Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    After being told the problem was being rectified by Chapin Spencer, today there are 2 CCTA cars parked at meters UNPAID and 2 buses at the intersection of Cherry and Pine. 1 bus is at a meter unpaid and 1 parked in a no parking zone.
  • Parking lines Archived
    North Winooski Ave Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Can DPW paint Parking lines on North Winooski Ave?
  • 194 North Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    We want to make you aware of a situation that has been brought to our attention from several residents at the buildings 188 and 194 North St. A large truck is consistently parked in the handicap space to the left of the driveway that is causing a shield effect for drivers exiting and entering this driveway. We recently have been notified of several accidents (cars) and near misses (pedestrians) caused by this large vehicle being parked there. We want to offer a suggestion to move this handicap space to the corner of North St. and Elmwood Avenue or on Elmwood Avenue in front of T. Ruggs. We would like to avoid future accidents since the common denominator has been this truck that people can not see over. Please for the safety of everyone consider this move!
  • 8 North Winooski Avenue Burlington, VT - Burlington Electric
  • Paved Greenbelt. Acknowledged
    118 North Union St Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    The contractor recently paved over part of the greenbelt and widened the driveway far beyond its previous width.
  • 174 Home Ave Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric

    I do not know what the city can do other than build the Champlain Parkway finally after 4 decades, but until then if something is not done to deal with the constant speeding traffic and massive tractor trailer trucks that cascade down Home Ave at all hours of the day, someone is going to get seriously hurt or worse. Kids are scared to walk out of their front doors or walk to school because it is like playing a game of frogger every morning and afternoon at rush hour.

    Why is the city and state so dysfunctional? Why can't they bring any large infrastructure project successfully to fruition?

  • Snow Plowing Archived
    32 S Union St Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    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!
  • Maple And Battery St Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    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.
