Notified About

  • 224 Somerville Ave Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville
    The stretch of Somerville Ave between the fire station and Target is in very poor repair. There are small potholes everywhere and someone told that cobblestones are visible in one place. There at least needs to be patching, if not a full repaving.
  • Went to a BC basketball game last night, I had forgotten how bad this road is. I can't say it's one pothole in particular; rather, the entire stretch from South Street to Lake Street is akin to one giant pothole. I've been on smoother dirt roads.
  • There are so many potholes on this street, it feels like you're on a rollercoaster. One near the intersection with Mass Ave could take a wheel off.
  • 180 Properzi Way Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville
    Properzi Way has a number of potholes that are particularly dangerous to cyclists. Near Properzi Way & Beacon St there are a number of thin, long, deep potholes that could easily catch the front tire of a bicycle turning onto Properzi Way. In fact, all of Properzi Way probably needs to be repaved, but at a minimum some patching would alleviate the immediate danger.
  • 223 Washington Street Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville
    Massive pothole/crater in front of the auto shop on washington street. Perhaps it may be too wintery to fix it yet but - Jesus - it's really dangerous!
    Can't we fill it with sand and gravel till it can be properly filled?
    EXTREME HAZARD for bikes and cars, especially if it is covered by a puddle which it often has been, and especially considering the busy and chaotic traffic pattern along that stretch of road. seriously someone could get killed

    Washington St & Beacon St Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville
    There are several massive potholes on Beacon St approaching Washington St (on the "Porter Square bound" side). There is not officially a bicycle lane here, but the potholes are where cyclists typically stay on the road. Several of them are *very* deep and will pop bicycle tires and possibly toss cyclists off their bikes, into traffic. These potholes really should be patched while the weather still allows.

    299 Beacon St Somerville, MA 02143, USA - Somerville
    The lane towards Porter b/w Star market and Oxford St is completely uneven and full of holes. I'm reading the reports from 2 years ago and it's exactly the same after this winter. When are they going to just repave this road?
  • 151 Beacon St Somerville, MA 02143, USA - Somerville

    I really almost died today right here. I was thrown clear off my bike by one of the dozens of potholes in this area, straight into traffic. It was only due to the good handling skills of the attentive driver behind me that I wasn't run over.

    Beacon St in Somerville is a deathtrap for cyclists. Avoid this area. The city should be ashamed of the condition of this road.

    State Hwy 99 Boston, MA - Charlestown
    very bad pothole, right lane headed north on the underpass...surprised my tire didn't pop off
  • Left lane heading towards the Mass Ave. bridge, two in rapid succession that always cause brake slamming. I've seen a number of near accidents as cars swerve to avoid them.
  • As you turn right from Charlesbank Road onto Nonantum watch out if you're in the far right lane. There is a crater that took our muffler right off. It's close to the shoulder of the road and hidden a bit, especially at night. Watch out ... you might fall in.

    20 Sherman Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - Neighborhood 9
    Sherman St corridor is riddled with patches and potholes making the heavily biked narrow road dangerous especially in the dark. Resurfacing should be considered.
