    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.
  • Pothole Archived
    Washington Street Newton, Massachusetts - Newton
    On the ramp coming off of the Mass Pike in West Newton heading west on Route 16, there is a hole under one of the straps on the right side of the exit rounding the curve. I have learned to avoid it either by staying over far to my right, or by going into the first left lane, but it is very jarring on my car, when I forget that it is coming up. I don't know who would take care of this, but it has definitely been a problem for my car, and would be for others, especially smaller cars.
  • 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!

  • 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

    Exit Ramp From Mass. Pike At Exit 17 Heading West Newton, Massachusetts - Newton

  • 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.
  • Cochituate Rd Town of Framingham, MA, 01701, USA - Framingham
    There is a yield sign for cars leaving the mass pike at exit 13 to route 30 Framingham that is being ignored. The exit heading route 30 west is the one of concern. Twice I have been on route 30 west driving when cars have failed to yield getting off the mass pike. I have the right of way and twice now cars have violated traffic law causing dangerous driving conditions.
  • 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,

    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.
