Notified About

  • Interstate 90 & Cambridge St Boston, MA 02134, USA - Allston-Brighton
    On the off ramp from the Mass Pike eastbound, there are no lane markings. Photo shows confused cars. Are there 2 lanes? 3? 1?
  • 120 Woodland Dr Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham

    At the service plaza on the Westbound side of the Mass Pike, in between exits 12 and 13, there is a yellow gate in the back. This is presumably used by authorized personnel only.

    However, recently I have noticed a substantial uptick in cars simply "cutting through" this area to avoid traffic and/or avoid paying a toll. This has resulted in increased traffic in the Woodland Rd/Audrea Rd/Florita Rd neighborhood. Often times this is late at night and neighbors of this quiet area aren't happy with the uptick in unauthorized use of that cut through.

    Who's jurisdiction is this, can the gate be closed and locked aside from official use, and what can be done to enforce this? Thank you!

  • Pothole Acknowledged
    500 Soldiers Field Rd Boston, MA 02134, USA - Allston-Brighton
    Large (left wheel) pothole just at the turn off Soldiers Field onto the Pike. Thanks for looking into this
  • 232 Ruggles Street Westborough, Massachusetts - Westborough
    Ruggles Road just before the I-90 Turnpike Bridge is riddled with potholes/broken up pavemen
  • ያንኪ ዲቪዥን ሃይዌይ Weston, MA - US Congressional District MA7
    There is a pothole that blew out my right front tire at approx 4:00pm today (1/30/2012) at exit 25 on I-95. It is in the right side of the left lane of the exit just as the exit begins to I-90. Getting a tow from the Pike home and then taking tomorrow off to get the tire replaced and an alignment was certainly not the way I envisioned ending my day. Please fix this pothole ASAP.
  • Jay St And Brigham Hill Rd Grafton, Massachusetts - Grafton
    Traffic moves VERY QUICKLY ON BRIGHAM HILL ROAD - GOING BOTH WAYS - BETWEEN DEERNOLM AND KAY ST, JUST PRIOR TO THE MASS PIKE OVERPASS..... It would increase the safety of those who travel this area - by USING THE SAME PRINCIPLE THAT THE TOWN OF GRAFTON DID ON THE UPPER PORTIONS OF BRIGHAM HILL THAT INTERSECT WITH NORTH BRIGHAM HILL....BY PAINTING DOUBLE YELLOW LINES IN KEY AREAS ON THE ROADWAY, SO AS TO KEEP PEOPLE ON THEIR RESPECTIVE SIDES..... YOUR THOUGHTS????
  • 197 Cambridge Street Allston, MA 02134, USA - Allston-Brighton
    From getting off the Pike, until at least the traffic lights at Lincoln Street, what used to be two same-direction travel lanes is now about 1.5 lanes (full right lane and partial left lane) and two-lane travel is extremely hazardous. Have witnessed several near accidents as cars in the left lane swerve into the right lane to avoid jutting snow banks, or generally travel outside their marked lane due to their lane only being partially cleared for long stretches. Either better plowing or a temporary lane closure is needed to avoid an imminent accident.
  • 21 Sun Valley Dr Framingham 01702 United States - Framingham
    Hello- I am writing on behalf of myself and my neighbors: we would like to request a noise abatement wall to built along the Mass Pike—90. I know this is a large ask but i am starting here in hopes to be sent in a direction to make a further request if needed. The noise makes it very hard to Open windows and doors and have a normal conversation! I have started to collect names on a petition and want to show how appreciated this would be.
  • 99 Massachusetts Ave Boston, MA 02115, USA - Back Bay

    A few years ago, Boston added a left turn lane from Mass Ave north to Newbury Street west and the Mass Pike ramp. To line up northbound Mass Ave's two straight-ahead lanes with the lanes on the other side, they added a dashed white line across the intersection to guide traffic to the left.

    The line quickly wore away, and now traffic from the left straight-ahead lane goes straight into the right lane on the other side. This is dangerous, and effectively narrows Mass Ave to one lane in one of its most congested spots.

    Boston DPW, please repaint the lane dashes across the intersection right away, and continue to do it each spring.

  • Damaged Sign Archived
    Cambridge Street & Interstate 90 Boston, MA 02134, USA - Allston-Brighton
    As the two Pike exits merge together and then again merge onto Cambridge St, there are no signs indicating the merges. The new bike lane further complicated things as it is unclear whether the lane shifts or ends where the bike lane begins. In at least two places, lanes simply end. Signs warning of the merge / indicating right of way / displaying merged lane patterns are arguably a necessity for avoiding future accidents. Additionally, re-painting of the road lines is sorely needed (this should have been done when the bike lane was added, which itself already needs re-painting in many areas). Overall this whole area from merging off of the Pike exits, thru the first couple stop lights after that on Cambridge St, is very poorly marked for cars and bikes alike.
  • Trash in Yard Archived
    447 Montgomery St Chicopee 01020, United States - Chicopee
    Trash is still in the empty lot between uhaul and United bank. Makes the city look bad when this is the first thing you see right off the pike. It’s been noted before and nothing has happened
