  • Massachusetts Ave Cambridge 02142, United States - Mit
    This is a dangerous intersection and it needs a no turn in red sign to stop cars from turning right onto memorial drive. I have contacted DCR several times and they won’t do it.
  • Memorial Dr Cambridge 02139, United States - Mit
    Two MBTA Transit police cars blocking the bike lane, leaving cyclists to contend with cars accelerating onto memorial drive
  • Boston University Bridge Cambridge, MA 02139, USA - Mit
    The bituminous fill over the bu bridge expansion joints has recently eroded away in several places. See example in photo. Please fix with durable material. Thank you.
  • John W. Weeks Bridge Cambridge, Massachusetts - Riverside
    Hello, the green park-bench that used to be located on top of an approximate 6 feet long by 3 feet wide section of pavement in the grass has been detached from the concrete and thrown into the river. The bench in the river can be seen from the edge of the river in daylight. It is about 3-4 feet from the edge of the river, and in about 3-4 feet deep water. It has been there for about 4 months. I'm wondering if it might be possible to retrieve it, and reattach it to its concrete slab. There are only about 10 benches along that 3/4 mile section of river and grass from the JFK Bridge to well beyond the Weeks Bridge, and the bench, being the closest to the Weeks Bridge, was readily used by hundreds/thousands of people a year. Thanks very much if you're able to help.
  • Raleigh Street Boston, MA - Fenway-Kenmore
    The intersection of Raleigh Street & Bay State Road is very dangerous. There is no way for the drivers to see the incoming traffic from the stop sign. Moreover to make things worse, snow gets piled at this corner during the winter. A traffic engineering solution is needed before an accident happens
  • 1 Main St Cambridge 02139, United States - East Cambridge
    Witnessed this vehicle drive around the bollards in order to park in the bike lane.

    Eliot House 101 Dunster St, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA - West Cambridge
    Bike lane used for TNC parking. Needs protection, biking in traffic here is essentially impossible.
  • Harvard Brg Cambridge, MA - Mit
    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.
  • 330 Mt Auburn St Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - West Cambridge
    The Longfellow Park sidewalk on Memorial Drive is full with patches of solid, very slippery ice.
  • 47–57 Cambridge Pkwy Cambridge 02142, United States - East Cambridge
    Clearly the parking space on the right was not good enough, so why not use that perfectly good bike lane to park?
