Cambridge - All Neighborhoods

Notified About

  • 2177-2201 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge, MA, 02140, USA - North Cambridge
    On morning of 10/22/18, left turn signal from westbound Mass Ave onto westbound Rindge Avenue was not working.
  • Bike Rack Request Acknowledged
    441 Broadway Cambridge 02138, United States - Mid-Cambridge
    Can we get more bike racks at the Cambridge main library? The use of benches for securing bikes is inappropriate.
  • Pearl Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - Cambridgeport
    The major snow emergency routes throughout Cambridgeport (Putnam, Magazine, Pearl, Brookline) have barely been plowed! I am shocked not to have seen a snow removal vehicle since early Friday morning. Compared to other parts of the city, nearby cities (e.g. Watertown) and Cambridge's historic effectiveness at ensuring streets are passable, the Cambridgeport neighborhood seems to have been forgotten this week. There will certainly be problems once school buses are trying to navigate tomorrow, and this should be anticipated and avoided.
  • 820 Somerville Avenue Cambridge, Massachusetts - North Cambridge

    The temporary walkway on Somerville Ave adjacent to the commuter rail tracks lacks accessible ramps/detour signage and protection from cars on this high-traffic roadway directly adjacent to the Porter Square T station.

    The sidewalk is also closed across the street for the Target construction, but they have offered better protection for pedestrians and temporary ramps for accessibility.

  • 1 Main St Cambridge Massachusetts - East Cambridge

    In the Main St WB bike lane there are 2 sets of 2 pipe holes in the street that are very deep in the pavement and pose a serious hazard to cyclists, who are likely to be riding at high speed coming off of the downhill at the end of the Longfellow Bridge. They are unmarked and nearly impossible to see at night.

    Please smooth out the pavement around the pipes so that they are not so hazardous and mark them with bright colors so that they are easily visible to cyclists at night.

  • Massachusetts Avenue And Cameron Ave Cambridge, Massachusetts - North Cambridge

    The overlapping signals, while I am sure are important to reduce vehicle congestion, are dangerous at this intersection. This morning my 3 yo son and I were inches from a bumper. We were in the crosswalk at the end of Cameron and a left turning vehicle from Massachusetts avenue onto Cameron screeched to a stop inches from us. The driver looked irritated that we were in his way. I am grateful we are alive. We had the crossing light. He had a green.

    We regularly have these types of problems crossing this intersection, but this is by far our closest call. We use this intersection to get to and from daycare. I dread crossing it.

    The overlapping signals during morning rush hour put pedestrians and vehicles in conflict. This is dangerous to do during rush hour when drivers are already rushed and frustrated. Signage warning to yield to pedestrians doesn't (and cannot) succeed in calming drivers adequately for this design to be safe.

  • 140-198 6th St Cambridge, MA 02142, USA - East Cambridge
    Livery driver. Ticket and separate infra please.
  • 60-64 Walden Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - Neighborhood 9
    Pedestrian crossing missing across Walden St at the intersection with Richdale Ave on the north side of the intersection. (The other three pedestrian crossings, two across Richdale Ave on either side of Walden St, and one across Walden St on the south side of the intersection, are present.) This is a particularily popular intersection for commuters walking to Porter Sq. Adding the fourth pedestrian crossing would increase safety of existing crosswalks by preventing vehicles from being parked close to the intersection along Walden St, thereby increasing visibility. It would also make corner store more easily accessible, increasing number of visitors, making the neighborhood livelier and more pleasant. Already existing speed limits, speed limit sign on Walden St approaching the intersection from the north, length of plateau on commuter rail overpass, and already existing all-way stop signs ensure that vehicle operators coming from north can safely yield to pedestrians at proposed crosswalk.
  • Alewife Station Access Road Cambridge, Massachusetts - North Cambridge
    This morning one of the two Yates Pond swans was killed on the Alewife Station Access Road. Drivers, after being stuck in the traffic jam which is the Route 2 eastbound offramp have tunnel vision impatience to get to the Alewife Station and Cambridge Park Drive garages. The pedestrian crosswalk barely slows many of them down. It's only a matter of time before a pedestrian is hit. The Alewife Reservation is on both sides of the Access Road. The swan that was killed this morning was not the first wildlife death on this road. The only thing that will slow drivers down to the speed limit is a couple of speed bumps.
  • Mead Street And Walden Avenue Cambridge, Massachusetts - North Cambridge
    The extreme traffic at the light at Walden and Mass Ave in North Cambridge during rush hour is being diverted (possibly by a traffic app) left down Mead Street to Cogswell Avenue, where there is now routinely bumper to bumper or speeding traffic during rush hour trying to avoid the light at Walden and Mass Ave to make a turn onto Mass Ave. This is a dangerous situation that is going to imminently result in mishap or accident. Please rectify by installing a "No Thru-Way" or "Do Not Enter Except Abutters" during rush hour sign at the intersection of Walden and Mead Street.
  • Danny Lewin Park Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02142, United States of America - Mit
  • 32 Brattle St Cambridge, MA 02138, USA - West Cambridge
    There are not enough cones in the buffer for the bike lane along this stretch between Eliot and where the parking spots begin right before Church. In the past 12 hrs alone I've seen 6 cars parked in the bike lane because it's too easy for them to pull into the lane because of lack of protection and cones. Please put more cones out.
