Kimberly Avenue Bridge Between West Haven And New Haven - US Congressional District CT3The Kimberly Avenue Bridge connecting West Haven and New Haven is extremely dangerous and makes traveling between the cities by bicycle very difficult. The east-bound traffic heading for the I-95 on ramp treats the right lane as part of that ramp and routinely accelerates to 50+ mph. There is no shoulder, cars cut each other off to gain position, the lane is often littered with broken glass and in the winter, the sidewalk goes uncleared, forcing pedestrians into the road.

the comments posted on most of the stories i've read are incredibly offensive on the registers articles. many do nothing to promote dialogue and only attempt to attack people. it is mostly anonymous and negative ranting. it is far from constructive.
many online news sources require that comments are reviewed by a moderator before they are actually posted.
does the register not believe that they are responsible for the way that commenters use their site?
Beach Walk West Haven, CT - West HavenI ride my bike on the boardwalk, from chicks to bradley point. usually about 4 times a week. I cant stand it people DO NOT listen to the markings on the sidewalk and walk all over the place. when i ride by them on my bike some pople are like watch where your riding that thing. The problem is I am on the proper side of the boardwalk. This really only happens from St. johns church to bradley point. its really annoying to have to slow down to a dragging pace and wait for people to move and then they get mad like im doing something wrong....Why dont they pay attention?
South Water St And Sea Street New Haven, CT - City Point
There has been excessive drug dealing on Sea Street and South Water St, (often done behind the Sound School buildings, dumpsters, etc.) Many residents have observed this on various nights and have called police with car descriptions (and eventually a license plate number, see the SeeClixFix issue entitled "NHPD Dispatch Refuse to Dispatch Officers" for more on this).
On one night that an officer did respond, he told the resident that called it in that there is nothing he can do "unless the Sound School posts a 'No Trespassing' sign, since it is public property." I am told that the officer then left without getting out of his car.
While I find this assertion hard to believe, I'd like to request that the city or the school posts appropriate "No Trespassing" signs so that the residents who live here might receive a better police response.
369-401 Kimberly Avenue West Haven, Connecticut - West Haven
The City of New Haven recently has added a bike path that connects to the sidewalk on Kimberly Ave bridge. This issue requests that City of West Haven provide a similar path or protected bike lane when entering or leaving West Haven. One option is to widen the sidewalk and make one half dedicated to bicycles. With the development of the new water front mall it would be exciting for us bike bound New Haveners to be able to get right to the water front and the mall. We love you West Haven, love us back!
-Sincerely Your Neighbors to the North East.
(PS, I bet a lot of your residents who commute to work in NHV by bike every day would also love you.) Vote it up if you want it fixed!
South Water Street New Haven, CT - City Point
Residents of the City Point neighborhood have noticed an increase in drug dealing and other illegal activity in our neighborhood. At least 3 calls have been made to police regarding this activity which has always involved one specific car. An alert resident finally was able to get the license plate of this particular car and called it into police. The person who answered at dispatch asked what the block watch number for our neighborhood is. The caller did not know. The dispatcher said that without that number, she could not send an officer out. She did NOT send an officer out.
This is concerning to me--and should be concerning to every New Haven resident. Can someone from the police department please clarify for me that officers will not be sent out--even if the activity is IN PROGRESS-- unless the caller has a block watch number? ( I'd also like clarification as to whether block watch numbers are even used to track calls and allocate officers anymore. I had been told that they were not. In fact, when I have called the police before to report a car break in, the dispatcher would NOT take the block watch number.) I think its important that residents AND dispatchers are made clear on these guidelines.
100 South Water Street New Haven, Connecticut - City PointThe sidewalk is decimated, railings are totally destroyed and hanging on by a few screws. This is a hazard and should be addressed right away, This area has been destroyed for months it looks like a Syrian war zone.
99 Greenwich Ave New Haven, CT - City Point99 Greenwich Ave has been producing some of the same problems as 76 Howard Ave: noise and disrupting neighbors, public urination, parked cars (with people hanging out inside) that block other people's driveways, dumping garbage out of the cars into the street, sidewalk, neighbors lawns, etc. Can something be done?!
343 Beach Street West Haven, CT - West HavenWe reside in a 30 units condominiums building known as OCEANSIDE on Beach Street in West Haven.. The speeding and THE NOISE MAKING is unbearable.
Several years ago we had a meeting with the mayor to discuss the SPEEDING and the UNBEARABLE NOISE issues. Nothing was done.
Police present in the summer was tried ,but as soon as they go the speeders and the noise makers return. SPEED BUMPS are the only answer to these problems. They where placed all over the beach streets of Milford. Also on several streets in New Haven. In all these locations the problem was solved and there where no accidents.
WE ARE ASKING FOR SPEED BUMPS ON BEACH STREET IN WEST HAVEN
Tomlinson Bridge New Haven, CT - AnnexForbes Ave is already used by dozens of bicycle commuters as their primary route between downtown and Annex+East Shore despite the road being completely inhospitable to bicycling. Imagine how much more convenient bicycling would be for thousands of Annex and East Shore residents if Forbes Ave were reduced to one lane in each direction with a center turn-out lane and bike lanes on either side. I hear that the City is tentatively supportive and it is simply a matter of getting DOT onboard. Now that a new administration is coming to Hartford, this sounds significantly more plausible. If you would like to see bike lanes on Forbes Ave, vote for this issue!
Long Wharf Drive New Haven, Connecticut - Long Wharf
Long Wharf is absolutely disgusting. I would be embarrassed to advertise it as a ‘paradise’. The loud music, speeding, illegal parking and the trash are ruining a beautiful part of our city. These are pictures I took this morning. The trash cans were empty but there was still trash all over (especially styrofoam containers). And the dumpsters near the food trucks...overflowing. I could imagine the rats that must run around there.
Sadly, there is also trash floating in the harbor (the same styrofoam containers, drink bottles, etc.) and I saw a dead bird commorant floating in the water yesterday. Today a bird was trying to eat a straw.
Something needs to be done!!
