Notified About

  • Sciarappa St & Spring St Cambridge, MA, 02141, USA - East Cambridge
    Is 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.
  • 35 Brattle St Cambridge, MA 02138, USA - West Cambridge
    We've been told repeatedly that bike lane flexpost installation would start "next week" several times feet this spring and summer. Today alone three or four delivery vehicles have parked in this lane - that I have seen. It's becoming increasingly clear that the city doesn't care about this lane and the safety of cyclists who use it. There has been no protection on the lane for fast approaching a year, and minimal if any enforcement. I may stop coming to Harvard for things I can get elsewhere because it simply isn't safe.
  • 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..."?????
  • 61 Otis St Cambridge, MA, 02141, USA - East Cambridge
    The sidewalk is currently blocked by two different projects making it difficult to navigate for those who live in the neighborhood.
  • 343 Cambridge St Cambridge, MA 02141, USA - East Cambridge
    At sciarappa st at Cambridge st 69 bus stop people constantly park in bus stop illegally to pick up pizza at arams. Can stop be moved to opposite intersection in front of st Francis? Bus often doesn't see people waiting and we miss our bus!
  • 320 Rindge Avenue Cambridge, MA - North Cambridge
    Pedestrian reports missing crosswalk sign here. Today Water Dept worked at this location. Residents put a temporary "sandwich board" indicating crosswalk for students to identify crosswalk, but that disappeared today. Resident is not sure why the temporary sandwich board sign had to be removed. Please reinstall the crosswalk sign or provide some temporary indicator for students to safely cross Rindge Ave. This is a high traffic area and should not be unmarked.
  • 1899 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge, MA, 02140, USA - North Cambridge
    I 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.
  • Mass Ave/Cameron Intersection Cambridge, Massachusetts - North Cambridge
    This issue is for both Mass Ave/Cameron Ave intersection and Mass Ave/Cedar Street intersection.
    These two intersections are very busy with pedestrian and bicyclists competing with cars turning into Mass Ave from Cameron Street and Cedar Street and vice versa. Also, these two intersections are gridlocked during morning and evening rush hours further endangering the pedestrians and bicyclists.
    My wife came very close to getting hit by a car turning left from Cameron Ave onto southbound Mass Ave as she was crossing Mass Ave from west side to the east side with the walk sign in her favor. The motorist had the green light to proceed as well but was not paying close attention to the pedestrian traffic.
    Mass Ave/Cedar Street intersection has the added complication of bicyclist and pedestrian attempting to go from the west side of the Linear Park to the east side..
    Please study the situation and see if dedicated walk cycle an be added.
  • 288-308 Franklin Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - Riverside
    again, on friday around 10:30, the sidewalk was occupied by 2 rental cars. Enterprise regularly used the sidewalk as their extra parking space, leaving little space for pedestrians on the sidewalk. will the city do something about it (this is my third complain and I have already called the police more than once...).
    ticketing is obviously not working here
  • 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!

  • 136-152 Rindge Ave Cambridge, MA, 02140, USA - North Cambridge
    The 4-way stop at Rindge/Cedar/Middlesex is still hard for many drivers to remember or see. The problem is mainly with the Rindge traffic--it's not intuitive for that traffic to stop. I almost had an accident as I was turning onto Rindge from Cedar because of a driver running the stop-sign. I walk by or through that intersection a lot, and have lost count of the number of times I have witnessed cars honking at other drivers running the sign. Can additional signage or paint (i.e. stronger bright white lines, "STOP" lettered on the street) be added to increase safety?
  • Jefferson Park Rindge Ave, Cambridge, Massachusetts - North Cambridge
    Couple of new trees planted as part of the redevelopment of the Jefferson Park are directly in front and below mature tree that was protected during the construction.
    Please conduct survey to ensure that the root of the mature tree had not been damaged during new planting and please conduct study to ensure compatibility and survivability of the mature tree as well as the new trees, for example:
    1) how can the new trees compete for sunlight and survive under the shadow of the mature tree?
    2) if the new trees survive and grow as tall as the older one, will the canopy formed by the 3 trees be too dense?
    3) aren't the trees too close together to compete for nutrients?
    Thank you,
