  • 10 Poplar Street Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville

    Multiple large and deep potholes are making travel difficult on Linwood and Poplar streets in the vicinity of the former transfer station.

    This area was used for the snow melter so the amount of water was very high. The pavement has started to disintegrate as a result.

  • 1751 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge, MA 02140, USA - Agassiz-Harvard
    When you depart from Harvard Square or when you are about to enter the Square, the road surface is the worst it could be. I know know why there are so many SUV's on the road. From Harvard to Porter Square, on both inbound and outbound, the condition of the road is disgraceful. Most of the issues are from places that utilities opened the road and the patch job was not done properly.
    But never the less, someone is going to get hurt from a dodging pothole car.
  • East Coast Greenway Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 5

    I would like to remind the City that there are people who use bicycle as their primary mode of transportation, year-round, in all weather. Many streets in Malden have lots of potholes, and poor drainage, and the Northern Strand is in overall better condition, making it a much better option for bikes in inclement weather.

    There is currently a significant amount of slush on the path, and if it's not cleared very soon, it will partially melt, and then freeze into rutted ice, which is very difficult to ride across, even for the most skilled of riders. Please do something about this, and don't forget about the road crossings, where plowed snow frequently gets left where it blocks easy access to the path. Malden DPW has been pretty good about clearing the snow the last two years, but ice and blocked road crossings have been issues.

    21 Medford Street Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville
    Severe and extensive potholes near the railroad tracks on Medford St create a hazard for pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists. The potholes also create excessive wear-and-tear on vehicles. They also contribute to an uninviting and hostile atmosphere in the surrounding area and neighborhood. I would encourage the City of Somerville to move these potholes up on the priority list for patching this season.
  • Worst maintained road in the city... be very careful from Sullivan Station to Union Square, especially heading underneath the train overpass. Embarrassing!
  • 62 Braeland Ave Newton, MA 02459 - Newton
    HUGE pothole at the intersection between Braeland Ave and Herrick Road near the Newton Centre MBTA T stop. It's so big that someone WILL lose a tire there if they aren't careful!
  • In Chelsea, another bad pothole. Actually, there are many all along Beacham from Spruce St to Rt 99 (Broadway). The heavy truck traffic in that area destroys the roads quickly.
