Memorial Drive Cambridge, MA 02114, United States of America - Mit
Numerous tents and encampment of homeless along railroad tracks. Appeared to be cooking equipment and other long term setups. Alcohol cans liter and urinating etc. seems counter productive to the measures taken by state to clean up area.
There are two long parallel strips of pavement in the Cambridge-bound bike lane of the Harvard Bridge that form a rise of 6 inches or so near the end of the bridge. The result is that there is only a thin strip of pavement on which one can ride in the bike lane safely. The alternative is to ride in the car lane on this part of the bridge which is not always safe. The pavement needs to be leveled here.
the new concrete Islands on the Longfellow Bridge off ramp to the Memorial Drive are dangerous for bicyclists, requiring a sharp weave maneuver to avoid being thrown off the bike at high speed, while having to look over the shoulder for cars. please urge MassDOT to change this configuration and make it safe by allowing bikes to go straight through as they did before.
