    1 Lordvale Blvd Grafton, MA 01536, USA - Grafton
    These have been here since 4/13 - I figure whoever filled them forgot to report them to DPW. Under the Mass Pike overpass on Deernolm.
  • 820 Memorial Drive Cambridge Massachusetts - Riverside
    This is very dangerous now as the snow is high enough slippery and uneven if someone fell they could be impaled or seriously injured by the spikes on the fence that run between the sidewalk and of Riverside Press park!
  • Potholes Archived
    I-90 W Framingham, MA, 01701, USA - Framingham
    Mass Pike West bound by mile marker 120.6 there are numerous deep potholes in the center lane. There are potholes in the center lane for about a mile heading west bound. Please repair.
  • Massachusetts Turnpike Boston, Massachusetts - Back Bay
    This issue should probably referred to state authorities. There is no speed limit sign showing that the speed limit drops to 45 MPH (from 55) upon entering the Prudential Tunnel while traveling eastbound on the Mass Pike.
  • 612-642 Cochituate Road Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    On a daily basis between 5:25A-5:45a, a black Infinity MA 4GH 445, travels East bound on Rt 30 from Rt 126 at a high rate of speed. Sometime 50/60mph or greater. This vehicle swerves in & out of traffic creating a hazard for other drivers. He unltimately turns into the TJX campus. For example, this morning, a vehicle was comming off MA Pike & had to swerve almost into the parking lot of Central Pools to avoid a collision
  • 272-288 Cambridge St Boston, MA 02134, USA - Allston-Brighton
    The two traffic lights on Cambridge St east bound before the entrance to the pike are out of sync. The first light turns green, but the next signal is still red. This can cause gridlock with as few as 2 cars entering the intersection.

    591 Memoral Dr Chicopee, Massachusetts - Chicopee
    When you are leaving Wal Mart, of the shopping center, on Memorial Dr. The right lane was made, a left turn or straight lane, a couple of years ago. If you turn left, you are on Memorial Dr., if you go straight you are entering the Mass Pike. The painted arrow on the street has faded and will keep fading with the constant turning of the seasons we have. A left and straight sign posted up on the traffic light would benefit all.
  • Springfield Expressway Chicopee, Massachusetts - Chicopee

    I commute on the Mass Turnpike from exit 8 to exit 6 at approximately 6:30am every day. Lately, the traffic getting off the turnpike is backed up onto the breakdown lane for at least 1/2 mile. This poses a serious situation to me. Traffic is going by at a high rate of speed and these vehicles are stopped. I have to wait through at least 4 or 5 complete cycles of the traffic light at the end of route 291 and the start of Burnett Road. I would ask you to please increase the amount of time that this light is green for vehicles attempting to get onto route 291 west from the Mass Pike.

    Are you the right person to contact? Or is this a Mass Turnpike issue?

    Many thanks,

  • 1426 Concord St Framingham, MA, 01701, USA - Framingham
    There used to be a plaque commemorating Crispus Attucks at the base of the right side of the concrete structure in the picture. This is on Concord Street, roughly across the street from the Commonwealth Warehouse Park at 1451-1455, between the Pike underpass and School Street. A brook (which probably runs into Cochituate Brook) runs under the street at this point. I know the plaque was there around the year 2000. Later, it was covered up with dirt and leaves. I reported that once here on this site. Now it looks as though the plaque is gone altogether. I'm hoping that it was moved to a safer location.

    There isn't adequate signage to indicate you cannot make a right turn from the center lane coming off of the Mass Pike. There should be a no right turn sign right at the corner as well as one up on the overhead traffic light.
  • 243-249 Auburn Street Newton, Massachusetts - Newton


    The sidewalk on the odd side of Auburn street directly east of where it crosses the pike is covered in about two feet of snow. This is a pretty busy road/sidewalk with a blind corner, and residents over here who have to walk to the commuter rail and points closer to Comm Ave would appreciate not having to walk in the street!

    Thanks very much!
