Sciarappa St & Spring St Cambridge, MA, 02141, USA - East CambridgeIs it possible to have this intersection made into a 4-way stop? For that matter, I'm not sure why the grid of East Cambridge has alternating stops at intersections. It's confusing and lends to accidents. I've witnessed a few accidents at this specific intersection as well as cars racing down Spring. Please add a 4-way stop sign.
61 Otis St Cambridge, MA, 02141, USA - East CambridgeThe sidewalk is currently blocked by two different projects making it difficult to navigate for those who live in the neighborhood.
1899 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge, MA, 02140, USA - North CambridgeI have seen many bicyclist making left turn from the southbound Mass Ave to Somerville Ave from the leftmost lane of Mass Ave instead of using the bicycle lane clearly marked for that left turn. There is even dedicate bicycle traffic signal cycle at southwest corner of Mass Ave. One bicyclist made that left turn from next to a Camb police car that was stopped in the middle lane.
Please set up a traffic safety officer at this very complex intersection to educate bicyclists to use properly marked bike lanes. Also, please extend the bike lane marking further north to where the automobile traffic arrows start to clearly delineate bike lane from auto lanes.
582 Franklin St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - RiversideOver a year ago a noisy device, previously located on a wooden pole at 590 Franklin St., was relocated at the request of the new owner. The new location, on a wooden light pole about 80 feet farther down the street, is near the house at 582 belonging to me and my wife Margot Kempers.
Shocked by the noise of the fan-forced cooling we wrote Mark McGovern and he apparently forwarded my concern. Little happened but I did speak with installers from, I believe, Crown Castle, who told me they were replacing the old device, and that the newer one was quieter.
We noted that the new one has four cooling fans, twice the number of the old one.
While it is unclear if that device was ever quieter, it has become noisier and noisier until now it is having, in our opinion, an adverse environmental impact. It is very loud and runs whenever the temperatures get in the neighborhood of 50 degrees.
It is outrageous that the city would add noise like this to a quiet residential street.
We submit that no one in city government would put up with this in front of their own house.
We find it hard to believe that other, quieter, cooling options are not available to whoever owns and maintains the devices.
Please advise us as to the city’s stand about this, and as to any available remedies.
140-148 Broadway Cambridge, MA 02139, USA - The PortAs I was calling this in to CPD the same guy who must work there (yes I've called in many from this location) came out to harass me. After I noted the multiple pedestrians and cyclists going out into the street to get around the vehicle he left it with "come on, nobody really works in Cambridge, anyway..."?????
2309 Massachusetts Avenue Cambridge, Massachusetts - North CambridgePlease consider additional signage to discourage illegal left u-turn from Massachusetts Avenue into the Century Bank entrance. I have been almost hit five times. A neighbor's toddler was almost hit once. At 5:30 today I witnessed a driver make the illegal left u-turn from Mass Avenue into the Century Bank entrance and miss a motorcyclist by 1 foot. She blamed him for her illegal turn and honked her horn so loud she could have startled him into running into the car in front of him.
45 Walden St Cambridge, MA, 02140, USA - North CambridgeThis is the second time I have reached out to complain about cars driving in the opposite lane on Walden St. The last time I was almost hot twice by cars doing this. It happens every day (I saw 7 cars do this in the several minutes I was outside). As traffic backs up on Walden, cars will drive pull out and drive down Walden in the wrong lane and turn on Mead. Anyone driving or cross on Mead is in danger. Adding to this is the tall fence that blocks seeing traffic on Walden form Mead.
395-415 Mt Auburn St Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - West CambridgeThis intersection is SO dangerous! Gridlock in the morning and dangerous behavior by frustrated drivers is making this notorious intersection worse than ever. The light timing must be adjusted to prevent the west bound drivers on Mt. Auburn Street from causing gridlock on their approach toward Coolidge Ave. AND the left turn arrow onto Coolidge Ave must be longer to accomodate the Shady Hill school traffic (7:45 - 8:15), which is causing the gridlock.
34 Fairfield St Cambridge, MA, 02140, USA - North Cambridge
The construction site at 34 Fairfield Street currently has no electric power hook-up and supply.
--> Please enforce that the home owner or general contractor SIGN UP FOR ELECTRIC SERVICE so that power tools can be plugged in instead of using a noisy generator.
--> Please also request that CONTACT INFORMATION OF OWNER or CONSTRUCTION COMPANY BE DISPLAYED ONSITE
The construction crew has been running a noisy power generator non-stop since 9AM this morning and won't finish until 6PM tonight. This will be the 2nd day within a week of such major noise pollution. These are not acceptable living conditions in a residential neighborhood where little kids need to nap, children need to do homework, grown-ups need to work from home, and everyone else just residing here.
Overall, this is the 3rd major complaint about unprofessional construction site management impacting residents. Not happy!
7-11 Broadway Cambridge, MA, 02142, USA - East CambridgeThe protected bike lane on Broadway is impassible, forcing cyclists to veer dangerously into the street. This is unacceptable to have a bike lane completely covered in ice, especially as Cambridge touts itself as a bike-friendly city. Further up the street, the sidewalk level bike lane has had snow pushed into it and has aso not been plowed. The bike lane on the other side of the street is also full of snow. This is unacceptable!
2579 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge, MA, 02140, USA - North CambridgeHello. I live at the intersection of Alewife Brook Parkway and Mass Ave in North Cambridge. With so much new traffic in the entire Cambridge area I realize how hectic things are bound to get. However, there are many families that live at this intersection and it is almost becoming impossible to cross to the other side of Mass Ave (onto the side with the bus stop) at the last pedestrian crossing before you reach the traffic lights and cross into East Arlington. I am wondering if it would be possible to install either another traffic light in this area or a blinking yellow light at that crosswalk to protect the safety of the families that live in this area. I no longer feel comfortable bringing my young children across this crosswalk. Also the cars do not always understand to stop at that last intersection before the lights at which you are supposed to receive a $100 fine for blocking the intersection. This is where many families need to turn in to get to their homes and it is blocked frequently by very angry drivers honking their horns because they don't either see the sign or understand what to do. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could help make this area of North Cambridge safer for families and address the above issues. Can you please direct me to a person that could help understand this issue more and perhaps intervene? Thanks.
52 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge 02139, United States - MitLarge bus from Local Motion company parked illegally for at least twenty minutes. No active loading of passengers. Partially blocking MBTA stop and fully blocking access to the protected bike lane. All of the work to create these lanes, plow them, etc is completely wasted if there is no enforcement, and as you can see from reports this block has issues most of the time during commuting hours. (Also a recurrent issue with this company. Submitted another report for a different bus parked at the same time blocking bus stop and bike lane at Marlborough St!)
