    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.

  • 2-18 Massachusetts Avenue Boston, Massachusetts - Back Bay
    The red globe for the fire pull box on the west side of the church park condos (along Mass Ave outbound, before the bridge) is missing. Can you please replace? This is a busy area that has had several fires in the last few years.

    Spoke to the driver, who flipped me the bird. Enough leniency. Ticket those drivers.
  • 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
  • 585 Commonwealth Ave Boston, MA 02215, USA - Fenway-Kenmore
    Cars, delivery vehicles, and taxis are constantly blocking the bike lane--from beginning to end--on Comm Ave. Swerving in and out of traffic is unsafe on any road.

  • Traffic Signal Acknowledged
    Dr Paul Dudley White Bike Path Boston, MA 02134, USA - Allston-Brighton
    This is an incredibly high traffic intersection, crossed by a high traffic bike/pedestrian path. There in NO pedestrian signal. Crossing on foot or by bike is difficult with no walk signal. Incredibly negligent for no signal to be in place.
  • Mit Cambridge, Massachusetts - Mit

    Pedestrians are required to press the "beg" button in order to cross the street along the esplanade, at all times of day, despite constant foot and bike traffic 24/7. If people crowd around the button but don't push it, large crowds of people start to backlog at the light, because it skips the ped signal all together.

    This would be a perfect opportunity to change the light cycle to always include the pedestrian signal. I have literally never been thorough this intersection without at least one pedestrian or bicycle waiting to cross.

    Thanks :)
