  • 50-60 Trumbull St Hartford, CT - Downtown
    This is pretty much THE pedestrian gateway between the CBD and Bushnell Park. Like other heavily walked intersections in the city, this one needs an "ALL WALK" in the rotation. Instead you get stuck on a median!
    I tried emailing Raj Mathur in the Engineering Department regarding this matter directly, but got no response so re opening.
  • 60 Elm St Hartford, CT 06103, USA - Downtown
    Need "stop for pedestrians" signs in crosswalks aroun Pulaski Circle, specifically on elm and Hudson. People coming off the circle treat those roads like runways and there are often people with children and dogs crossing to and from bushnell park
  • 699-727 Main St Hartford, Connecticut - Downtown
    This sidewalk hasnt been cleared since before the first storm. I reported this many days ago but cannot find the issue so I am resubmitting in case it didn't go through. This is a well traveled stretch of street as well as a major bus stop. Whether the church or city is responsible needs to be established and someone needs to keep this area safe for pedeatrians.
  • 1161 Main Street - Downtown
    Building needs to be torn down -
  • 52 Prospect St Hartford, CT 06103 - Downtown
    Prospect Street between Central Row and Grove is one way going south 6:00 AM until 9:00. Vehicles do a left turn on red onto Grove Street. Very dangerous as north bound vehicles on Prospect need to make right turn and are often cut off by those making a left turn on red.
  • Pothole Archived
    Columbus Blvd Hartford - Downtown
  • 360 Broad Street Hartford, Connecticut - Downtown

    Money was spent to install bike lanes on one block of Broad Street, but we may as well have flushed those dollars. Instead of clearing the roadway curb-to-curb, the DPW plowed it into the bike lane, making that unusable to cyclists. Predictably, when we ask for bike lanes in other places in Hartford, we'll be told this won't happen because the current one is not used.

    1. Snow happens in New England every year. Make a plan for appropriate snow removal and stop bring shame to Connecticut

    2. Bicycles are transportation, especially in a city with such widespread poverty. People riding bicycles are already vulnerable. There is no need to exacerbate their risk by essentially forcing people onto a narrow street used by motorists rushing to get onto I-84.

  • Noisy bird Archived
    2-98 Central Row Hartford, CT 06103, USA - Downtown

    Some kind of bird atop either the Old State House or an adjacent building spends several hours each afternoon squawking VERY loudly. It's nice to have wildlife coexisting with humanity and all that, but this is a bit much. I can hear the %#$@ thing clearly inside my office a block away.

    If it isn't an endangered species, can Animal Control kindly remove this territorial critter to a better habitat?

  • 201-265 Highway 2 Hartford, Connecticut - Downtown
    There is a series of large potholes that are difficult to maneuver around coming from the Founder's Bridge onto Columbus.
  • Pratt St Hartford, CT - Downtown
    There is no bike parking on Pratt Street, even though its our city's most dense street. Let's not add just one bike rack, but a whole stable of racks so that more people will want to bike to the shops and restaurants on Pratt. New Haven just added a bike corral, let's do it too. http://www.newhavenindependent.org/index.php/archives/entry/bike_corral_debuts_downtown/
  • 59 69 Jewell St Hartford, CT 06106, USA - Downtown

    As much as I might believe that tetanus helps children build character, I'm pretty sure that 4 out of 5 mothers would disagree with me.

    There is a rather large, sharp, pointy, rusted out piece of equipment on the playground in Bushnell Park next to the carousel. Can we get this either repaired or covered? If not for the kiddies, at least so that the City does not end up getting sued. My taxes are high enough, thanks.

  • 2-32 Morgan Street Hartford, Connecticut - Downtown
    at this intersection of Morgan & Trumbull (heading west), there are four lanes of travel. midway down the block, there is a sign indicating that the leftmost lane is for turning left onto Trumbull (towards the Hilton), the left middle lane heads onto the I84 entrance ramp, the right middle lane goes onto Chapel St North, and the rightmost lane can either go onto Chapel St North or turn right onto Trumbull.
    The PROBLEM is that 99% of the time the people in the leftmost lane do not turn left, but head straight onto the entrance ramp (it is directly across from this lane of travel), creating two lanes heading into the same one lane. I have almost died here numerous times. It is extremely dangerous to be in the CORRECT lane because you have to anticipate the car to your left is going to head straight even tho they should be turning.
    The SOLUTION is to put another sign AT THE INTERSECTION informing the left-laners that they must turn left, or paint the directional arrows right onto the pavement so people know the left lane is turn only.
