    356 Aiken Street Lowell, Massachusetts - Lowell

    Intersection of Perkins and Aiken Streets.

    I think that this busy intersection should have full traffic lights, not just stop signs for the traffic on Perkins crossing Aiken.

    There are about 472 students now living in the new University Suites right at this intersection, and they cross Aiken to attend classes. Right now, cars just stop in the street to let students cross, or students simply cross disregarding traffic, hoping it will stop for them. It's a disaster waiting to happen.

    Ever since this sidewalk's wooden planks began buckling, it has been taken out of commission. That was, I think, over a year ago. In the photo, you can see where the fence begins.

    On 7/22/13, the City of Lowell told me, "This bridge is owned by Enel. The latest status update they gave us is that they have received bids for the work. The prices are higher than they thougth they'd be. We (City, UML, MCC and NPS) have requested that Enel bring a schedule for the work to the next monthly status meeting.
    The short answer to your question is that we don't know when it will be fixed."

    On 7/25/13, Enel Green Power said, "Enel Green Power North America is working on a plan for the repair of the sidewalk, but has encountered some delays. The final repair plan will be determined through a collaborative effort between our company and the City of Lowell.

    We closed the sidewalk for public safety and did provide means for pedestrians to cross the street to the other sidewalk. However, we certainly understand the inconvenience of the arrangement for those who frequently use the route; but we will maintain this set-up as it is the safest option at this time. Please note that this solution is temporary until the sidewalk can be replaced.

    I am happy to forward you a final plan for the sidewalk replacement as soon as it is available. We do apologize for the inconvenience."

    While I understand that these things tend to drag on, it's frustrating, and the chain-link fence is just another visual blight. Further, I've noticed that pedestrians who need to stay on that side of the road will not cross to use the opposite sidewalk, but rather just walk in the street.

    Vfw Hwy Lowell, MA - Lowell
    cars are constanlly blocking the intersection and you just sit through green lights so the ones coming out from Lakeview Ave the light turns green and the other cars on the VFW have all ready blocked the intersection so you cannot go when it is your turn. then others proceed to block the other direction trying to get in when the light is green. need to adjust the timing some how with the ones on Bridge street
  • 30 Market St Lowell, MA - Lowell
    The barriers for the Centro Restaurant sidewalk seating area cause the sidewalk passage to become dangerously narrow. Elderly and other handicapped pedestrians are forced to run a gauntlet of scooters, bicycles, baby strollers and other vehicles in a space barely wide enough to walk in a single direction, let alone two.
