Notified About

  • 145 Cherry St Burlington 05401, United States - Burlington Electric
    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.
  • 140-150 Pearl St Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    Please clear the bike lane on Pearl Street, it is covered with dirt and sharpes, it is not usable.
  • Sidewalks Acknowledged
    802 Colchester Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    A big gap has formed which could easily cause a biker or pedestrian to tumble into fast-moving traffic. The metal joint plate covering the gap creates a dangerous surface.
  • 107 Us-7 Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    There is a crosswalk, but pedestrians never seem to have the right-of-way and there isn't an electric walk signal. This creates a very dangerous situation as you basically always have to jaywalk across the crosswalk. Please give a gap between greenlights so that pedestrians can cross and give us a signal.
  • Sidewalks Acknowledged
    36 Walnut St Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    This section of the sidewalk and green belt on Walnut st next to the community garden should be re-done. There is a whole section of the sidewalk missing that floods when it rains, and the green belt has large chunks of an old driveway in it. Please improve this area! Thank you!
  • 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).
  • 208 Flynn Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    I am adding my complaint that this event was allowed to happen in this neighborhood. There were over 300 people with loud cars, burnouts, smoke, loud noise and driving up and down Flynn at speeds of more than 50 mph. They were serving food and liquor with no security. thank you to BPD for shutting it down.
  • 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.
  • Plattsburgh Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Several complaints were filed on street conditions being horrible near the North Avenue Plattsburgh Avenue area specifically Plattsburgh Ave. last summer. DPW director informed taxpayers that paving process for the area had been moved to top priority and would be taking place September late fall. This did not happen and now the area is near totally a rock zone in the East bound lane of Plattsburgh Avenue leading to vehicles driving in the wrong lane creating another safety issue. About the only way to use Plattsburgh Ave. is now to take helicopter from North Ave. to corner of belt line.DPW director dropped the ball on this one once again.
  • 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.
  • 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.
