  • Harvard Street Medford, MA 02155, USA - Medford

    For years residents have pleaded the mayors office to address the overwhelming problems with traffic volume and commercial trucking on Harvard Street. To this day they have been unresponsive.

    I'd like to report the mayor's office as the overriding ClickFix issue. Please repair this break in the city infrastructure or make room for someone who will.

  • South St And Main St Medford, MA 02155 - Medford
    There is a traffic light installed at this intersection - but it desperately needs to be turned on! Right now it just blinks red. Very, very dangerous -- as well as long traffic backups.

    Canal St Medford, Massachusetts - Medford
    In the heart of West Medford commuters blow through crosswalks every single day. If a pedestrian is unwilling to put yourself in harms way, the aggressive drivers trying to beat the traintracks will not stop for you. We need better signs placed in the center of the road, the lines repainted, and an occasional police officer enforcing what to me is the most basic sign of respect - letting pedestrians cross when they are standing in a crosswalk. Oh, and this is directly in front of a preschool to boot.
  • 504 Riverside Ave Medford, MA 02155, USA - Medford
    This is a very dangerous intersection now especially how that there's a Planet Fitness, Smash Burger, Panera, and Noodles & Company there. The heavy traffic that has been created requires a traffic light from the plaza exit. I've seen several pedestrians almost get hit, several car accidents, as well as a near brush with someone hitting me today. Why someone hasn't analyzed the traffic pattern before these new buildings were constructed is negligence/oversight on both the town and plaza owners behalf. Please put in a light there before someone gets killed b

    302 Winthrop Street Medford, Massachusetts - Medford
    every road leading into the rotary is causing a problem. There are 2 cars entering the rotary from 3 different locations. The intersection is being blocked. It is a constant from 6:30 in the morning until 10:00 a.m. Something needs to be done.
  • 265 Winthrop Street Medford, Massachusetts - Medford
    Ever since the Winthrop Circle Rotary was most recently redone, drivers entering the rotary have been cutting off drivers already in the rotary. From most directions, there's no sign saying that this is a rotary or warning drivers to yield to traffic that's already in the rotary. There's also so much pavement there that it's hard to see where you should wait to enter the rotary, or where you should drive around the rotary. I've been driving through this rotary for years, and it didn't used to be such a problem. Now, driving through it at least twice a day, I am ALWAYS cut off by someone entering the rotary. Possible solutions: add signs, stripe the road, and reduce the amount of open pavement.
  • Spring Street Medford, Massachusetts - Medford
    Despite the "No Heavy Trucking" signs on Spring St., trucks are constantly speeding up and down the street. The most frequent violators are George's Bakery trucks and Budweiser trucks, but I see everything up to tractor trailers and cement mixers. This is a residential street. The trucks need to use the Fellsway and the police need to ticket the truck drivers.
  • 2-16 Dexter Street Medford, Massachusetts - Medford
    The green light on Dexter Street is 5 seconds long, which is not long enough for bicyclists to get through this large intersection. The short green light combined with extremely long red light plus having to compete with oncoming traffic from the CVS parking lot means Dexter Street gets backed up past Bow Street during rush hour, as only a couple of cars can get through the intersection per light cycle. It also sets up a game of chicken between Dexter St and the CVS parking lot traffic, with people not yielding to oncoming traffic when making left turns... very dangerous. Needs either "left turns yield to oncoming traffic" signs or change so Dexter and CVS parking don't compete for the same green light, plus a longer green light.
  • Signage Archived
    198 High Street Medford, Massachusetts - Medford
    there needs to be a rotary symbol sign on the island facing south down Winthrop. At night especially it is not easy for strangers to realize it is a rotary. It needs sign like the one on Main Street rotary in Winchester. Last night I was behind an out of state auto that made a left from Winthrop to High westbound without going around the rotary.
  • Forest St Medford, Massachusetts - Medford
    A crosswalk was supposed to be painted across Forest St (near Webster or Water) before McNally Park opened last year. It has still not been painted.
  • Lane marking Archived
    Salem Street Medford, Massachusetts - Medford
    Salem Street, from the chicken and rice guys location down to the traffic lights, there are no traffic lane markings whatsoever. On a dark rainy night, it's especially difficult to distinguish what lane you are in, if any.
