I am a public watcher interested in fixing issues as quickly as possible after they arise. I don't "fixes" that do not permanently address the problem, nor do I want the fix to take so long that it creates an issue of its own.

Notified About

  • Wall Triana Hwy Sw Huntsville, AL, 35824, USA - Huntsville

    It looks to be that a contractor has been using an open area for dumping of dirt from a near by construction side (I am guessing somewhere out behind Dunlop Blvd - see below for more info)

    Wall Triana from Dunlop to this dumping site is a MESS. Follow the red dirt road. It is especially a mess at the round turn where Wall Triana turns north but both North and Southbound outside lanes are covered in red dirt and dust.

    The contractor looks to have taken a water truck to the ramp to try and clean it up, but it only made it all worse. They have been tracking dirt and debris into the roadway all weekend.

    They need to establish a concrete clean off location at both the dumping site and where ever they are leaving from. Wall Triana should also be street swept and washed in some capacity. What is the point of cleaning your car if you get a nice red mist every time you drive through this area - which is the main entrance/egress to multiple subdivisions.

    I understand the growth in our area, but the lack of respect for citizens/roadways from construction/contractors is getting a little ridiculous. Not to mention - many of these trucks have been hauling untapped with debris flying out the back which is a safety hazard.

    This needs to be addressed. Both short term and long term.

    This was torn up due to installation of the google fiber lines. They repaired with asphalt but there was concrete there. Request they put it back to concrete. Located behind 6 Beck Street.
  • 1798 Old Monrovia Road Huntsville, Alabama - Huntsville
    Traffic circle has been in place for many years and numerous drivers still are not maneuvering it correctly. Providence Main exiting to Old Monrovia eastbound is the only traffic immediately allowed in the right lane but traffic in the circle from the other feeders often exits the circle directly into the right lane crossing the solid white line. Domed traffic control devices need to be installed along the pavement's white line to help direct traffic correctly. The white line has been repainted more frequently than other lines because of the right of way violations. See attached view; domes needed along drawn red line.

    Section of sidewalk has not been replaced after it was removed.
  • 140-198 Neeley St Ne Huntsville, AL 35801, USA - Huntsville
    The city is already planning a flood project, bu instead of their proposal to have a grass hole in the ground, let's get a lake with water in it
  • 2500-2598 W Winfield Cir Sw Huntsville, AL, 35803, USA - Huntsville
    I'm requesting an additional street light be installed between 2404 and 2410 Hobbstone Circle Huntsville AL 35803 in the Eastgate Subdivision. It is significantly darker between those houses at night due to the lack of a street light. Thank you.
  • 9741 Wallwood Dr Se Huntsville, Alabama - Huntsville
    Last year a contractor for AT&T dug a hole for their equipment next to the sidewalk which caused the gravel bed to fall into the hole. The contractor did not replace the gravel under the sidewalk. This year a contractor for Xfinity broke a water line install their cable. When Huntsville Utilities came to repair the line they had to dig on the other side of the same section of sidewalk where the AT&T contractor had dug. Now the entire section of sidewalk is slowing falling into the void.
  • 7590-7598 Old Madison Pike Nw Huntsville, AL, 35806, USA - Huntsville

    The crosswalk on Madison Pike at Slaughter Rd is missing and needs to be replaced.

    Following a recent repaving project on Slaughter, the crosswalk had to be removed but was never replaced. Crossing the street is dangerous enough without it. Can you re add the crosswalk?

    This appears to be within Hsv City limits.

    200–248 Mountain Gap Trl Se Huntsville 35803, United States - Huntsville

    Fencing around Utility boxes has been broken for well over a year. This was reported last June issue #4610867. In July you replied “we will check for ordinance violations....“ In Sep you replied “your issue has been handled and we are closing your request.” Just curious how “this has been handled” since NOTHING has changed !!

    Again the issue is not handled, closed, or resolved until the repair has been done. Please just fix the fencing and be done with it. Thank you.

    501 Hiawatha Trail Se Huntsville, AL 35803, USA - Huntsville
    This property continues to be a nuisance to the neighborhood due to an absentee landlord. The vacant house is now being used by individuals "cleaning" the property overnight. I doubt much cleaning is happening at 12:30 AM when we hear someone banging on the door to be let inside. To our knowledge no one has rented the property, so why are people there overnight?
  • 508-698 Weatherly Rd Se Huntsville, AL, 35803, USA - Huntsville
    A telcom contractor is adding more cable to an old pole marked for over a year to be replaced and is being held up to the new pole with wire. Why doesn't the city enforce the agreement with these companies and force them to move their lines to the new poles?
