156 Rindge Ave Cambridge, MA 02140, USA - North Cambridgedrivers at the "new" all way stop between Middlesex Cedar and Rindge streets don't seem to understand that the rules have changed there despite all the warning signs you've put. I've seen people on Rindge repeatedly drive through in the afternoon as if it wasn't there, putting pedestrians and drivers in danger. anything else you can do, like add some pedestrians priority signs? anything you can coordinate with Cambridge police? thanks
146-150 Alewife Brook Pkwy Cambridge, MA, 02140, USA - North Cambridge
Dear Cambridge Traffic Parking and Transportation Staff,
I wanted to alert you to the traffic situation that has been created by the new "No Turn On Red" sign at the intersection of Rindge Ave and Alewife Brook Parkway. Since that sign has been installed, during high traffic-volume times, traffic is now backing up from Alewife Brook Parkway all the way back to Mass Ave. That's nearly a mile of cars sitting in traffic barely moving.
This is also causing traffic to back up onto the side streets that feed onto Rindge Ave.
This adversely effects commuters, school buses, pedestrians, children on their way to school, crossing guards, curbside collection workers, and people with air quality issues.
I left my house at 7:30 this morning, and traffic was already backed up nearly to Mass Ave because of that new sign.
I'm hopeful you can remove the sign and find another pedestrian safety solution at that intersection that doesn't back up traffic so badly.
Thanks very much for considering this.
20 Reed Street
Raymond St & Walden St Cambridge, MA, 02140, USA - Neighborhood 9Of 50 cars to traverse this 4 way stop intersection at a park corner, only 10 cars came to a complete stop. 20% compliance is an opportunity for serious injury. Some cars did not come to a complete stop even when children were crossing the intersection. This is typical when I do this counting.
Bondir 279 Broadway, Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - The PortLongfellows/Lamplighter is a popular destination but there are no bike racks besides a small one that only fits two bikes. It would be great to have a real bike rack here. I am actually sitting in the coffee shop and have seen numerous people come by on bike and not have a place to leave it. It would be great to put a rack maybe in the parking place out front. After all, a bike rack would fit at least 10 bikes while the parking space only fits one car. It would allow for many more custumers for local businesses!
131 Third Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - East CambridgeAfter the most recent (and seemingly frequent) accident over the weekend at this intersection, please install a 4 way stop at the corners of Third and Spring.
355 Main St Cambridge, MA, 02142, USA - MitThis taxi was stopped here in the bike lane when I approached, and there was one parking spot ahead of it and two spots behind it that it could have easily pulled in to to let its passenger out. Drivers stopped in bike lanes unnecessarily like this should be warned, at minimum.
194 Elm Street Cambridge MA 02139 - Wellington-HarringtonLarge trucks are speeding down Elm Street, in particular Royal Hospitality, breaking overhead tree limbs, putting bikers and young children at risk, and creating loud noises and debri. We desperately need a raised sidewalk or speed bump at Elm and Lincoln to deter commercial trucks from using Elm Street vs Columbia.
701 Mount Auburn Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - West CambridgeThe signal to Belmont st from mt auburn st is turning red all the time which used to be green and red only when pedestrians crossing. This is causing traffic back up all the way to the fresh pond parkway. It is taking more than 30 min to cross while it used to take less than 5 min.
Rice St & Rindge Ave Cambridge, MA, 02140, USA - North CambridgeThe new three-way stop at Cedar/Rice Street and Rindge Avenue is run constantly by drivers who do not realize that Rindge Avenue now has stop signs at that intersection. The brief presence of "New Traffic Pattern" signage has been ineffective. Flashing lights on the stop signs would be a major improvement to visibility and reduce the number of near-collisions at the location.
Hancock Park Cambridge, Massachusetts - Mid-CambridgeOur little street (Hancock Park) was pretty bad last year and we requested our street to be repaved and instead some of the potholes were filled in, leaving the street in "okay" shape. These past 2 months, Eversource showed up on Hancock Park. They totally destroyed our street and sidewalks. Now Hancock Park has been reduced to gravel and several of our brick sidewalks just have the bricks stacked up and replaced with asphalt. It doesn't appear Eversource is ever going to fix the street or the sidewalks or put things back to the way they were (they seem to be "done" with their work and are just gone). Please come and put our sidewalks and street back in to a usable condition. Right now it looks like a construction site.

I timed my legal, with the signals traversal of this intersection passing from CPD (right hand side, only side with a sidewalk right now) to the T. It took 2 minutes and 25 seconds. I also came into conflict with several cars during this time - while the light for peds is white going over CPD, it's entirely blocked by cars turning left from Steel Place. One nearly hit me in the crosswalk.
It's clear that crossing against the signals is both faster and safer. No wonder everyone jaywalks here. I still don't know, despite asking several times, whether the City, DCR, MBTA, or some other entity is responsible for signalling at this intersection, but this is a complete abdication of the responsibility to provide safe pedestrian infrastructure.
47 Loughrey Walkway Cambridge, MA 02142, USA - East Cambridge
brand new two way cycle track being blocked for a delivery during morning commute hours with police support. 1/10/19 @ 0836
Cambridge contacted Arlington officer 466 to "watch the area. I asked the officer for more details and was told that the Forman on sight has a permit. I asked for the permit number but they were unable to provide it.
Why is the city issuing permits to block separated bike facility's during commute times, esp with out providing a safe alternative. this is the worst time to do this and puts the most people at risk. if this was the "best" location, the whole block of the cycle should have been closed with "detour" and "bikes can use full lane" signs used. There is near by parking that could have been used that would have been lower impact on commuters and other citizens in the area, why was that not explored? The officer on sight was just watching the people work, he made no effort to make sure that commuters, pedestrians, or workers were making safe decisions with this unmarked and bad use of space. several people almost collided due to blind spots that were made from the large truck that had no business being there.
