  • 45 Palmer St Lowell, Massachusetts - Lowell
    The pedestrian crosswalk outside brewed awakening desperately need lights as you are unable to see pedestrians crossing at night
  • 26-114 Market St Lowell, MA 01852, USA - Lowell
    Why isn't the city cracking down on the building on market street next to Persona? All it seems to be is a place for hoarding junk and it is an awful eye sore.
  • 30 Market St Lowell, MA - Lowell
    Gang graffiti has appeared on the side of 30 Market Street building along the LNHP canal walkway.
  • Traffic Concern Acknowledged
    Rourke Bridge Lowell, MA 01854, USA - Lowell
    I know this is a MassHighway intersection but this 1 intersection has an astronomical trickle down affect that stretches miles through Lowell. The outbound signal releasing traffic from the Rourke bridge is only 26 seconds long during rush hour traffic! This should be at least a minute. And se will say that thus change will only create more traffic on the boulevard, look at the photos included, there is no "traffic" in either direction. But the traffic over the bridge stretched all the way back up Wood St. into Chelmsford, back up Middlesex St. to the intersection of Pawatucket St. and back up Wrstford St. at least to the intersection of Stedman St. There simply needs to be a timing adjustment. The left hand turn signal heading westbound (u turn lane) also is triggered when no vehicles are there, further slowing down traffic. This traffic not only affects commuters, but deters consumers from heading to local businesses during these hours, and certainly affects the local home owners. For an issue that has been so long term, it surprising that nothing has been done sooner! If you could keep us updated with and plans MassHighway may have to help this issue(besides the new bridge that won't happen any time soon) it would be greatly appreciated.
  • 175 Chapel St Lowell, Massachusetts - Lowell
    I called the Lowell Police about NA illegal parked vehicle at the corner of Chapel and Central on Sunday May 18 at approximately 11am. The vehicle was within the crosswalk and on the sidewalk, forcing pedestrians to have to walk out onto central Street. The traffic unit showed up, but the officer did not get out of his vehicle, nor when he left was there a parking ticket on the vehicle. Was there a ticket issued by LPD on this? If not, why?
  • 70 Methuen St Lowell, Massachusetts - Lowell
    Cars routinely park on the sidewalk on Metheun St between 7th and Merrill. I cannot get by on the sidewalk with my stroller; sometimes I cannot even fit single file, with no stroller.
  • 110-294 Arcand Drive In Front Of The Masonic Temple and also in front of Lowell High, Lowell, Massachusetts - Lowell

    I did not know what category to post this under.

    There are two American flags on light-posts, seemingingly hanging only from a piece of material, and each carrying the weight of a metal rod, which in the wind slams repeatedly and loudly against the light-posts. They have been loose like this for at least a few weeks, likely caused by the wind.

    If one came loose in high winds like we have today and fell, anybody they landed on would be seriously hurt.

    In the photo, the one on the left is in front of the Masonic Temple, and the one on the right is closer to Fr. Morrisette Ave in next to the Lowell High. For the one on the left, that is the wind that is carrying the weight of that heavy metal pole. Please someone fix these before they do damage.

    I'm really surprised, given their proximity to both the police station and City Hall, that nothing has been done to fix this.

  • 679 Chelmsford St. Lowell, MA - Lowell
    The white house at 679 Chelmsford St often has a lot of trash and recycling stacked or scattered in their front yard. The front lawn is used as a driveway (see picture) and the sidewalk in front of the house is often blocked with at least 2 cars pulled up on it. One of them is often a white honda civic.
  • Sidewalk Repair Acknowledged
    143 East Merrimack Street Lowell, Massachusetts - Lowell
    The contractor building on the corner of E Merrimack & Fayette St. has blocked 6 to 12" of the sidewalk with the fencing.
    The fence is affixed to the sidewalk not inside the plot where the construction is in progress. There's sufficient room to secure the fence off the sidewalk.
  • 316-398 Arcand Drive Lowell, MA 01852, USA - Lowell
    Center lane should be marked as a straight lane only toward the Tsongas arena since Father Morrisette Blvd. has been made one lane. Vehicles turning left have try try and merge too quickly. A sign should be put up showing the arrows for all three lanes, right hand only arrow, straight only arrow, and left hand only arrow.
