  • Yankee Division Highway Needham, Massachusetts - Needham

    I would like to see the No Right Turn on Red sign amended so that during non rush hour times, folks can take a right on red.

    I have waited at this light for what seems to be 3 to 4 minutes at 10 or 11 pm at night. A motorist can see down Kendrick to safely make a right on red.

  • Kendrick Street Needham, Massachusetts - Needham
    The length of the traffic signal at Hunting Road and Kendrick Street really needs to be changed. When traveling on Kendrick the light is 1 minute 20 seconds long. When traveling on Hunting Road the light is 20 seconds long. 4 cars can barely get through the light before it turns red. It can sometimes take 3 or more cycles to get through this light. This has been going on ever since the cycle was changed when the construction was completed. I have spoken several times to someone at the DPW about this so I know they are aware of the issue. They’re working with the state to try to get this changed. Does anyone have an update or a reason for not changing it? It should either be shorter than the almost minute and a half or make it a pressure light.
  • Parkinson Street At 736 Webster St Needham, Massachusetts - Needham
  • Brookline St. Needham, Massachusetts - Needham
    The sidewalk in front of Mitchell woods has an area that is less than 1 ft. from the road, with no curb to protect children walking to school. A car that was speeding yesterday was able to veer off the road onto that portion with no barrier. Safety cones, stick markers or some sort of visual marker needs to be in place until the curb can be built up.

  • 8 Maple Place Needham, Massachusetts - Needham
    There is a hole at least a foot in diameter and a few feet deep near the storm drain in the street. Someone could get injured if they don’t see it or a small animal could get hurt (and stuck in it). It looks like it is going to give way to greater damage.
