Notified About

  • 1298 Miller Avenue Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    This crosswalk (across Miller between Pomona and Wesley) lacks pedestrian crossing signs. It is the only crosswalk on Miller between Maple and Main Street that lacks the signs. Also, the crosswalk is on a hill, so the signs will make it more visible in both directions.

    112-152 N Maple Rd Ann Arbor, MI, 48103, USA - Ann Arbor

    So apparently, A2 uses AI to help improve traffic, however, it has *not* learned how to properly allocate traffic at the stoplight at Jackson and Maple. Driving west on Jackson and approaching Maple, there is constantly a pile of up traffic (especially from 4-6pm) and yet the wait for the light to turn green is an average of 3+ minutes. There is never a pile of traffic on Maple. Why isn't the green light longer for the Jackson side? And it seems super inefficient (e.g. Jackson going west + left turn gets a green, then waits, before going east gets a green + left. Often the left turn lane is completely empty before it turns red again) The whole thing could use a rehaul.

  • Park maintenance Acknowledged
    5 Parkview Pl Ann Arbor, MI, 48103, USA - Ann Arbor
    West Park Pond is a mess. Despite all the rain we've had, the pond is drying up. It's mucky, wildlife is leaving and it looks very stressed. Please determine the problem and work toward a fix. Engage the community if you need help cleaning it up and restoring health to this great eco-system and very popular place for people of all ages.
  • Hazardous Crosswalk Acknowledged
    625 S State Street Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    Sometime last year, the city painted lines for a crosswalk on the north side of the T-intersection where Madison hits State Street. Hundreds of law students and undergraduates use that crossing every day. We are grateful for the crosswalk, but there have been unintended hazards as a result. I have personally witnessed half a dozen incidents since last semester where students almost get hit by cars at night because it is not obvious that it is a crosswalk. If the city could install crosswalk lights, that would make the area much safer for students and drivers. Thank you for your time and consideration!
  • Nixon Rd. Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    There is a crosswalk on Nixon Rd. near the entrance to Clague middle school. I've noticed that there is no street light illuminating the cross-walk, making it very difficult for drivers to see pedestrians waiting to cross or already in the cross-walk when it is dark in the early morning or in the evening. Drivers very often fail to yield to pedestrians here and I have had some near misses with cars. Please consider adding a streetlight here to make pedestrians more visible before an accident happens!
  • Crosswalks Acknowledged
    2234 Delaware Dr Ann Arbor, MI, 48103, USA - Ann Arbor
    Crosswalk to school needs to be marked immediately- needs to be painted on street and increased signage needed for visibility. Many kids from elementary to high school use this crosswalk before and after school. Additionally no parking spaces need to be more adequately marked. Parents park here during drop off and pick up and further obstruct crosswalk view. Please remedy immediately for student safety. Thank you!
  • Signal repair Acknowledged
    S 7th St & W Huron St Ann Arbor, MI, 48103, USA - Ann Arbor
    The intersection at 7th and huron should have a left turn lane added, if at all possible, along with a left turn light. Traffic always backs up at this light between 4-7pm because of folks turning left and people not realizing and then trying to cram into the right hand lane. If remaining in the left lane was not a possibility, this might reduce the pile ups at this light. The light should also be longer for Huron, to reduce the traffic delay at this light.
  • 301–379 W Washington St Ann Arbor 48103, United States - Ann Arbor
    Huge potholes at the bottom of the hill. Today I was going down the hill and didn’t see it in time, popped my bike tire, and was almost flung off my bike. This has got to get fixed.
  • Crosswalks Acknowledged
    3rd St & W Huron St Ann Arbor, MI, 48103, USA - Ann Arbor
    The light at the crosswalk at Chaplin/3rd and Huron should have a periodic delay added to it. I understand the need to ferry pedestrians safely across the street, but often during high traffic, the crosswalk light is activated repeatedly, almost immediately after it having just been on. If we could implement a delay (2-3 mins) before the next activation, that would help traffic progress.
  • Crosswalks Acknowledged
    434 South State Street Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    I am a U of M employee who works in Angell Hall. Twice a day or more, I use the crosswalk going across the street from 435 S. State St. to 434 S. State St. For the past month or so, cars have regularly parked in the crosswalk, with impunity. Consequently, cars passing by down respect the crosswalk nor look at the pedestrians trying to cross their. I have been about to walk across that crosswalk 4 or 5 times in the past month, only to have to stop suddenly when a driver whizzes right by without stopping at the crosswalk. Something needs to be done here, or else a pedestrian is going to be, God forbid, hit and killed. Either enforce the crosswalk and the prohibition to park on it, or eliminate the crosswalk. Either one or the other. Please address this as soon as possible.
  • Other issue Acknowledged
    Huron And Glazier Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    This is a dangerous intersection for bikers, pedestrians traveling north on the sidewalk. Because cars travel south on Huron, drivers at the intersection of Glazier only look left. They also do not stop at all at this stop sign, let alone look for pedestrians. On today's commute and 3 days ago in broad daylight I would've been struck by another car while bike commuting. This is the norm. I have learned to yield to the cars bc they never pay attention, and sometimes I have to knock on the car to get their attention. I have reported this issue several times and made suggestions such as painting a crosswalk sign (though cars routinely stop IN the crosswalks), a look for bikers/pedestrian sign, etc. What we want to prevent is needing another ghost bike to remind drivers to stop and look for pedestrians/bikers. This is crucial esp with the shorter daylight hours. There is already a problem in broad daylight wearing a bright yellow reflective jacket.
  • 918 S 7th St Ann Arbor 48103, United States - Ann Arbor
    Bike lane in both directions on 7th is full of ice and snow while the road is clear. Please make it a priority to clear this bike lane as it is a major cycle commuter throughway. In fact, the city made this bike lane safer with a double painted line. I know it will warm up today, and most likely melt. However, it would be much safer for cyclists to have a clear, usable bike lane on 7th to depend on. Please make this a priority when clearing roads of snow and ice. Thank you
