It has become apparent by recent NNE conversations that there is confusion regarding the stop signs on the bike path. Some people feel that the stop signs only apply to bicycles and pedestrians have the right of way. Pedestrians walk into traffic and bikes often ignore the stop signs. Maybe an additional sign explaining that the stop signs are for everyone on the bike path? Would appreciate some clarification on the matter. Thank you.
Lots of debris in the bike lane at the intersection with Brookes ave, plus a bunch of broken glass on the block between Brookes & Loomis. The whole length of this bike lane could use some street sweeping.
The College Street Bike Path ends at the intersection of College and South Prospect. It is very hard to activate the left turn signal to turn from College St onto South Prospect when using a bike. Since this is the end of the bike path and many bicyclists will turn left it would make sense to mark this area like what has been done at the exit of Trinity Campus on Colchester Ave at East Ave. Please place the marker as far to the left as possible to help bicyclists avoid vehicles trying to get around them.
A resident of 32 rose street has been setting up a sidewalk sale every single day - weekday and weekend - right on the sidewalk from about 11am to 5pm every day. I can understand a single yard sale or sidewalk sale every now and then, but it appears to be his daytime business. If something is this frequent I would think it would need to be permitted. It is the source and site of many loud conversations, and may feel intimidating to neighbors and pedestrians. personally i find it unsettling and at times disruptive (he has had some loud swearing discussions). can someone please check in on what is going on and decide if it is permissible?
Please move this rack to a better location where access isn’t blocked by a tree & cafe seating. It is difficult to access & underutilized. It would also be very helpful if it was reversed so bikes could be loaded from the street side. Bikes are not allowed on sidewalks downtown & the current configuration requires a user to get their bike up onto the sidewalk, back down into the rack, and then reverse this process which is a challenge for many folks.
The right lane should be right OR straight. Most traffic goes left or straight, so it takes many light cycles to move cars through the intersection. Allowing cars to go straight in the right lane would move way more cars.
This section of the sidewalk and green belt on Walnut st next to the community garden should be re-done. There is a whole section of the sidewalk missing that floods when it rains, and the green belt has large chunks of an old driveway in it. Please improve this area! Thank you!
There is a crosswalk, but pedestrians never seem to have the right-of-way and there isn't an electric walk signal. This creates a very dangerous situation as you basically always have to jaywalk across the crosswalk. Please give a gap between greenlights so that pedestrians can cross and give us a signal.
