  • Wild turkey Archived
    301 399 College St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Downtown
    A wild turkey was wandering around the green on 4/28 and 4/29. I don't know how it got there. It probably should be taken away, the city is no place for a turkey.

    The new bike lane going in on Elm St is on the right side of the street sharing space with the CT Transit Bus stop in the Green. Because of parking on the upper block, buses must cut across the bike lane to reach the stop and then swing wide into the bike lane to turn right on Temple. This is dangerous for cyclists! Bollards can't be installed because of the parking, which if removed could make way for a dedicated bus lane.

    The right-hand side bike lane also prevents cyclists from safely turning left at Church or Orange, very popular routes to East Rock where many cyclists live. Bike boxes could help with this safety issue. Are there any planned?

    Anyone have ideas on how to keep people safe on Elm St?

    Pedestrian signal button made inaccessible by construction.
  • 49 High St New Haven, CT - Downtown

    Because of the renovations to Street Hall, the construction company had to make a temporary crosswalk on High Street. If you think we should have a crosswalk like this permanently, perhaps right at Library Walk, vote here by clicking "I want this fixed too!"

    Alternatively, if you have experienced problems with the temporary crosswalk on High Street, you should feel free to voice those concerns here too.

    New Haven Police Department car w/ lic. 112 NH guns engine to run light several seconds after it even turned to red. No lights/siren not in a rush since he proceeded to cruise down Elm toward the green. He just didn't think he should have to wait for the light like everyone else? Dozens of motorists were there to take note of this as well as at least that many pedestrians and a New Haven Fire Dept. Vehicle parked on Elm. Isn't this an intersection where reckless driving has recently caused a number of casualties? I keep seeing reports of NHPD driving as if they are above the law and NEVER see any feedback from the Department of the City. Do you even care about this issue? I do.

    Understood we need to cut the budget. Is there anybody trying to cultivate a donor to sponsor New Haven's fireworks? It would be a great opportunity for some companies to display civic goodwill. Anybody want help find philanthropic support for this endeavor and the Christmas tree?

    All bike parking spaces on both sides of High Street are taken. Please add a bike parking corral to support local businesses. One bike corral = 16 bikes in 1 car parking space.

    If you want to turn right to turn onto Park St as Whalley Ave comes into Elm Street, the lights are not well coordinated. You will get a green light on Whalley but as you make that turn, you will often have to stop at the Elm Street light. The traffic frequently gets backed up on Whalley Ave so that cars that are in that right hand lane can't go forward (it is a right turn lane as well as a going straight lane). The timing needs to be longer at the light at Elm to have a smooth flow of traffic. Now the light will turn green on Whalley and you can't move because that Elm St light is red. Thanks!
  • Front Street And Lewis St Park New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown

  • Potholes Archived
    All Streets New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown
    The City of New Haven Is littered with Potholes. Every Street is full. I have been a resident of New Haven for over 50 years and I have never seen such neglect of our City Roads. In addition this has been the year for the worst snow removal ever. If you drive through surrounding towns you will not see the abundance of poorly plowed streets.
    The residents of the City of New Haven pay outrageous property tax, close to the highest in the country. What are we getting for our hard earned monies? Its ridiculous!!!!!

  • 304 Elm St New Haven, Connecticut - Dwight
    The road on Elm St between Park St and Broadway still have snow banks on both sides of the road. This makes it unsafe to park ones car in any of these spots. When buses try to pass through here and cars are parked, it can't make it through. The bus then has to stop and this causes traffic. It is also hurting the retail spaces in that area. This snow should be removed.
