  • 40-42 Kirkland St Cambridge MA, Cambridge, Massachusetts - Mid-Cambridge

    I am writing about the paved sidewalk on Kirkland St (south side at 40-42)between Kirkland Rd and Sumner Rd. This sidewalk is in major disrepair as a result of tree roots, missing pavers, and many bumps and gaps. It is a major hazard for pedestrians, especially for children and the elderly.

    I wrote to Bill Dwyer who explained that this part of the street is scheduled for sewer updates that will include a new sidewalk. But I recently learned that this is not scheduled until FY20. Is there a way to have this sidewalk repaired or replaced sooner? It is a major liability for citizens and the city.

    I would greatly appreciate if you could have your office assess this sidewalk and find a way to have it improved.

    Cars and delivery vehicles pose a perpetual danger to cyclists and motorists by using the bike lane as a temporary parking space. Not only do bicyclists have to merge into traffic, but vehicles often have to cross the stripe into oncoming traffic to go around the violating vehicle. Hazard lights shouldn't get you out of breaking the law and endangering your neighbors.

    The short bike lane by the gas station on Broadway at Prospect, that is to the right of the straight and right turning cars, is dangerous as you continue towards Kendall Sq as it takes you into the back of parted cars and sudden sharrows and into conflict with card

  • 1-9 Clinton Street Cambridge, MA 02139, USA - Mid-Cambridge
    A few years ago Nstar tore apart Clinton Street. It has never been properly paved and is in terrible shape. I'm not sure why it is acceptable to destroy a street without repaving it, but it seems to be a common problem in the Boston/ Cambridge area. It would be nice to come home without feel like I'm off roading. Thank you.

    The street light in front of 44 Roberts Road is out and the street was very dark last night. The resident called the CM office and asked that it be fixed.

    There is an enormous pile of items apparently discarded from a recent move taking up the entire house front of the sidewalk - it looks to be almost two rooms worth of items -- sprawling on sidewalk and in to street.

    This seems to be a symbol/ drawing I've seen all around town.
  • 2-6 Austin Park Cambridge, MA 02139, USA - Mid-Cambridge
    Several inches of snow along most of the street and blocking the entrance to the street. I have gotten my car stuck both entering and exiting the street multiple times already today. This is a dead end and while we have cleared the end section, the majority of the street is still dangerously slippery and cars threaten to get stuck along the whole length, especially those without all wheel drive.

    A large branch broke off the tree in the public right of way and is partially blocking the road and completely blocking our driveway.
