  • 1-99 Morrison St Quincy, MA 02169, USA - Quincy
    National Grid's large trucks constantly use this road, which when pot holes are fixed, just removes the fix. Needs to be repaved!!
  • 469 Hancock Street Quincy, Massachusetts - Quincy

    The T-junction where the driveway of Hannaford supermarket meets Hancock Street is controlled by inductive loop traffic detector. The inductive loop on the driveway triggers green for sedans immediately but it does not detect bicycles. In order to make a left turn onto Hancock Street, a cyclist must wait for a sedan to come up from behind. This can take minutes to perhaps hours during off-peak hours when there are no sedans leaving the Hannaford parking lot.

    Here's the Google Street View of the T-junction: http://goo.gl/maps/FaElg

    Note that:
    A) the saw cut on the ground is not visible;
    B) once a cyclist is on the left-turn lane and stuck with a red light, there is no legal way for him to leave the lane (walking to the sidewalk on either side to press the button is jaywalking, moving over to the right lane before pressing the button is crossing a solid white line).

    I suggest:
    1) Painting the marking that comes with a R10-22 sign to show where the saw cut is (http://mutcd.fhwa.dot.gov/htm/2009r1r2/part9/part9c.htm#figure9C07);
    2) Checking the sensitivity of the detector to make sure that it will trigger for bicycles, motorcycles and pickup trucks; and
    3) In the short term, allowing bicycles and motorcycles to treat the red light as stop sign at that intersection

    Street is a mess, it used to be nice. Constant digging by the utilities companies has destroyed the street. (patc hwork is terrible) It's also being used as a constant shortcut to get to Quarry street. cars often exceed 40 MPH extremely dangerous

  • Lights are out Acknowledged
    200 Crown Colony Dr Quincy, Massachusetts - Quincy

    A popular street, and local access to the highway should be illuminated. The lights have been out for about a month now.

    Six months later and the lights are still out. Comments added.

  • Recent construction has not been sealed properly causing the surface to be torn up with heavy traffic use.
  • Animal Issue Acknowledged
    95 Highland Avenue Quincy, MA 02170, USA - Quincy
    Neighbor at 99 Highland Ave. has 3 dogs that are constantly chained up outside of house and bark all day and most of the evening. When people walk by the house the dogs jump out at them and its dangerous because the people walking are startled and jump into the street. It's a busy street on a MBTA route. The fence on the property needs to be replaced and the owner of residence has to be more respectful to her neighbors who have to listen to her dogs barking all day long.
