Watertown (Mass.) Department of Public Works

Notified About

  • 19 French Street Watertown, Massachusetts - Watertown
    An overgrown hedge on an adjacent rental property is obstructing the sidewalk and driver's visibility. We almost had an accident due to this problem.
  • Large Pothole Archived
    52 Irving St Watertown, Massachusetts - Watertown

    Large pothole on Irving St. near mattress shop in the lane heading towards Mt Auburn St.

    I know there's a long term storm coming and this might be difficult to fix in the short term. Please fill or put a cone there. This one appears to be a rim bender.

  • Trash Bins? Archived
    10 Bigelow Avenue Watertown, Massachusetts - Watertown
    The Big Belly Solar compactor in front of the Watertown Savings has been full and/or broken for several months, people have begun piling trash around it now.
  • 160-164 Massachusetts 16 Watertown, MA 02472, USA - Watertown
    Massive pot hole(s) -- at least 2 -- heading eastbound on Route 16 towards Watertown Center. Extremely hard to spot -- especially in rain.
  • 147 - 149 Sycamore Street Watertown, Massachusetts - Watertown
    The sign upon entering Watertown to let drivers know they are now in Watertown and not Belmont, needs to be replaced. Nothing on the sign can even be read since it is so faded. I think it would help to have a new sign so that commuters in this area would know about Watertown's 2 Hour Parking Restrictions.
  • 90 Galen St Watertown, MA 02472 - Watertown
    Numerous manhole divits along the right hand lane...need to swerve to avoid them.
  • Water St. The Entire Thing - Watertown
    This road must be a professional course for shock absorber companies. Potholes likes every 2 feet the length of the road.
  • Union Street - Watertown
    On Union Street (near the corner with Eliot St.) there was a "No Parking" sign on the east/south side of the street. This was either run over or vandalized and has been missing for about a month. There is an orange cone covering the sharp metal base of the old sign to avoid cars from parking on it and cutting their tires. Please replace the No Parking sign and pole.
  • Boylston And Chauncey - Watertown
    Somebody painted the benches in the Hosmer School yard an unsightly Rainbow of fluorescent colors
  • 32 Whites Ave Watertown, MA 02472, USA - Watertown
    There is a huge pothole at the driveway entrance to 32 Whites Ave. Car bottom scrapes as you go over it and have seen damage to people's cars.
  • Upland Access Rd Watertown, MA 02472, USA - Watertown
    Upland Access RD
    Very small street with major issues. #rd time in 6 yrs of a sink hole forming due to loos of stable ground underneath. The road is so uneven and seems to have patches going bakc decades. New sink hole forming and all DPW did was put a metal plate over it with a orange cone in the middle so drivers have to navigate around the cone on this 1 car wide rd. Rediculous.. They had road crews here tearing up and replacing roads around the corner that were is good shape and though someone a yr ago measured the road it wasnt replaced.. Would of been very cost friendly to utilize equipment that was already in the location to do this??? maybe the town doesnt know how to effectively manage budgets and projects
