  • 2579 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge, MA, 02140, USA - North Cambridge
    Hello. 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.
  • 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.


    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!

  • 52 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge 02139, United States - Mit
    Large 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!)
  • 395-415 Mt Auburn St Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - West Cambridge
    This 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.
  • Alewife Linear Park Cambridge, MA 02140, USA - North Cambridge
    A big box truck that illegally entered the bike path knocked the new bike lights off rendering them useless and they're hanging down potentially dangerous. Should be fixed ASAP.
  • 140-148 Broadway Cambridge, MA 02139, USA - The Port
    As 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 Cambridge
    Please 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.
  • 100 Howard St. Cambridge, Massachusetts - Riverside
    At the corner of Howard and Kinnaird, there is a stop sign on Howard St., but traffic on Kinnaird moves freely. This intersection has historically been tricky for cars turning onto Kinnaird, but because homeowner at 100 Howard has put up a new fence, visibility coming from Howard is even more cut off. Would you consider adding a "cross traffic does not stop" sign on the stop sign on Howard to warn vehicles at this blind intersection? Many thanks!

    Richdale Avenue Cambridge, MA - Neighborhood 9
    Resident called to report that the 2 crosswalks at Richdale and Upland/Mt. Vernon were all shoveled out and the plows completely closed them in again and dumped snow right back onto the cleared s/w near 35 Upland.
  • 11 Wright Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - Neighborhood 9
    My car got stuck in the snow on Wright Street today - this is 4 days after the storm. This is a recurring issue, and must be addressed. Can you please plow out the street completely.
  • 35 Cambridge Park Drive Cambridge, Massachusetts - North Cambridge
    Due to the increase traffic in the area, cars have been running the red lights to ensure that they can get through the intersections. This is becoming dangerous at night for walkers as cars are buzzing through the cross walks and almost hitting walkers. We need improved traffic controls in the intersection and better lights to ensure that drivers can see the walkers.
  • 339-343 Western Ave Cambridge, MA 02139, USA - Riverside
    Would it be possible to add a "Do not block intersection" sign on Western at this light?
