Everett St. & Chestnut between Fayette and High., Lowell, MA - LowellThese two streets are very narrow, people park on both sides of the road. Generally, there's sufficient lane space for only one car to pass through.
These should be designated one-way.
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.
741-779 Rogers Street Lowell, MA 01852, USA - LowellThere are crosswalks and pedestrian crossing push buttons at the intersection of Rogers Street, Stadium Plaza, and Phoenix Ave (on the McDonald's side) but there aren't any pedestrian walk/don't walk signals and the push buttons don't seem to affect the lights at all (I just waited through four light cycles.) Why is this intersection so awful for pedestrians? It seems like the infrastructure is sort of in place but is not working/complete.

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.
671-683 Chelmsford Street Lowell, Massachusetts - LowellThe bottom unit of the white and green house on the corner of Norcross and Chelmsford St appears to be abandoned with sever al broken windows on the Norcross St side. Also, there is often a lot of trash/abandoned items (e.g. mattresses) left on the propery. Hedge out front becomes quickly overgrown and obstructs sidewalk.
150 Middle Street Lowell, Massachusetts - LowellIs this sidewalk under repair? There are buckets with orange plastic fencing set up in front of the store that is blocking a portion of the sidewalk. I was walking in downtown on Saturday and while I could fit by the fencing on foot, this is making this sidewalk inaccessible for anyone using a walker/wheelchair/pushing a stroller.
25 Market Street Lowell, Massachusetts - LowellThe parking lot and alley behind 25 Market Street (Savannah, Eastern Bank, Talbott Building, etc.) is flooding and not draining during and after rain storms. This is a new phenomena. A large portion of the parking log, portions of the alleyway, and surrounding areas flood with over 1 ft. of water and ARE NOT draining. Standing water is present many, many days after rain. I believe this poses a health hazard.
190 Princeton Boulevard Lowell, MA 01851, USA - LowellNh plated truck and car parking on the sidewalk as well as blocking the street from being seen at Princeton blvd and foster at where officer pj was killed. You can't see the traffic around these two vehicles. This was reported once before.
135 Central Street Lowell National Historical Park, Lowell, MA 01852, USA - LowellStairs outside rear exit: edges of many of the steps are crumbling and need repair so that people don't fall down stairs.
