  • Nod Road And Cattle Pen Lane - Ridgefield
    One of the series of wood poles has fallen into the stream...leaving a large opening for a car to slide off road into stream in icy conditions which occur due to drainage pipe under road.
  • 55-99 North St Ridgefield, CT 06877, USA - US Congressional District CT4
    I drive this corner almsot daily and tho there is a 3 way stop sign there is ZERO visibilty. People are always having to do double stops inn the middle of the intersection to avoid minor collisions. It make every one frustrated and angry. JUST CUT THE SHRUBS BACK ON THE CORNER so people can see if someone is at the other stop sign! Please!
  • 19-45 Spectacle Ln Ridgefield, CT 06877, USA - Ridgefield
    We live in a secluded part of town with narrow roads, and people including neighbors FLY down our road. Danger to other drivers, walkers, childern and dogs that are on the street on a regular basis
  • 1-31 Mead Ridge Rd Ridgefield, CT 06877, USA - US Congressional District CT4
    Prior road repair following underground work is sinking and asphalt is "breaking up."
  • 1-99 Big Shop Ln Ridgefield, CT 06877, USA - Ridgefield
    What do people think of making this road a pedestrian (and emergency vehicle) only pathway? This road runs from main street to the parking lot. It has low vehicle usage and no sidewalk so people are always walking down the middle of the street anyway. Visibility for cars is poor when they turn into this street from main street.
  • 62 Barry Ave Ridgefield, CT 06877, USA - Ridgefield

    This is a problem any time there's ice/snow melt and heavy rain. Water flows from driveways on the South side right over the heavily canted Barry Ave. At times so much water flows (like today) that you can see ripples. I shouldn't have to explain why this is bad but I will anyway. Driver who don't maintain their tires can experience aqua-planing, in late fall and early spring this day time water can freeze at night etc. etc.

    Not coincidentally this was the same location where snow from the Southern driveway was shoved onto Barry, causing several feet of the West bound lane to be blocked.

    - why did the plowing service think this was OK to do?
    - why did the owners of the driveway not call them back to fix this?
    - why did RFPD not contact the owners?

    Small wonder no one got hurt there.

    Location is approximate, I think the mailbox says 62 Barry. Anyone driving there will immediately know what I'm talking about.

    Please fix drainage of Barry Ave in this location!

  • Triangle Intersection Of South Olmstead And Olmstead Lanes - Ridgefield
    yield and stop sign at Olmstead/South Olmstead were reversed when replaced after snow storm. they are still in wrong place. Need stop sign when turning from Rt 33 direction on Olmstead to proceed south on South Olmstead and stop sign on corner when heading N on S. Olmstead onto Olmstead in direction to go to Rt 33
  • 273 Wilton Road East Ridgefield, CT 06877, USA - Ridgefield
    Excessive speeding has been an issue on this "straightaway," on Wilton Road East for years. Many people walk, run and walk their pets here. It would be a long-hoped for sight if the police set up a trap here. I know I can volunteer a driveway.
  • 1-200 Ramapoo Road - US Congressional District CT4
    People drive way too fast on this street - it is narrow, windey (sp?) and used to walk on by many.
  • 550-606 Main St Ridgefield, CT 06877, USA - Ridgefield
    Residents in this area generally do a poor job shoveling and clearing the side walks. Would love the city to garner revenue by handing out fines to those homeowners
