Quincy Hospital is on this street so it might explain why the pothole keeps getting bigger, but as someone that lives off of Whitwell, I'm quite sick of smashing my tire into this monster pothole! The worst part is you can't go around it if there is a car coming the opposite direction, so you either have to slam on your brakes or you have to hit it straight on. Anyone that knows this pothole knows how bad it really is. I wish I had a picture but I would probably getting hit by a car out there.
There is no no truck sign at the end of Elm Street & Washington north bound on Washington. Trucks can turn onto a "no truck" street because there is no sign visible if the truck is turning from the north bound direction on Washington St. There is a visible sign from the southbound side. Reported to police. They told me to go to the DPW sign guy myself. Thought they should have taken the initiative.
For 13 years I have waited patiently for the sidewalk to be repaird. Observed the school being built, side walk near school done but not done from Russell to Greenleaf. To prevent twisting an ankle I have to walk on the road. I am a senior who walks to the YMCA every day. I have asked this before but no response!!
The new crosswalk near the recently purchased Woodward School for Girl (church) is extremely hard to see. Cars park right next to it and students begin to cross the road, while drivers cannot see the child beginning to cross the street.
At this location and on the other side of the tracks, given the foot traffic crossing over the MBTA rails and the food services on either side, there should be perminent, perhaps a couple BigBelly, trash recepticles to accomodate the well intended citizen who would like to disgard their trash but cannot, and, perhaps encourage the not so well intend to so also. If recepticles were there today I would have had the chance to properly disgard the trash I picked up along the way between Hancock and the rails. In addition, this area (especially on Billings) could have a more pleasant look and feel, if the City and Businesses were to realize the potential for themselves and passersby (Lets get them together on this). Please, at least put some receptilces year round for us so we can participate in helping to up hold a Cleaner - Greener Quincy. Thank you.
Quarry street has been split into 2 lanes at the intersection for Common and Furnace Brook, this creates a drag race mentaltiy when people leave the lights. They all want to be first. This street was designed as a single lane and should remain so for safety reasons. Too bad our current age dictaes the rules instead of the law
There is a makeshift basketball hoop attached to a utility pole on a public street. My understanding is that this is discouraged if not outright illegal. It frequently ties up the street with children at play (unsafe!), as well as causes general disturbances when matches continue past dark. Please have it removed as soon as possible. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
