Some new maintenance work appears to be in progress at this site, below the overpass structure. I do not know if this work will decrease meaningfully, the risk of bridge failure. That is only known to official safety inspectors. At least something is being done. We will continue to watch the Treadwell site for progress.
ORIGINALLY REPORTED 4/11/14.
At least seven months since first reporting, and no repairs have been done. Are traffic barriers and netting the best New Haven County, or Hamden officials can do?
Bridges fail. Roadways fail. I know this is a sizable project, but responsive city officials take pre emptive action on these projects before they get worse.

The rebuilding of the road and supportive structures over and below this bridge need attention before something bad and preventable happens first. Nothing has been done for over a year. This is unacceptable.
The temporary netting attached below is the first sign of serious problems. On the sides, exposed steel reinforcement is clearly visible. In some cases, the steel is rusted bent and/or detached. All of the visible damages are major violations for bridges around the country. Often leading to final warnings or complete closures. In the very least, the path directly below the bridge, and the bridge roadway above, should be closed until repairs are done.

Sidewalk between Spring Glen Terrace and Middle Road in front of my house has increasingly large sections of sidewalk heaved up. This produces a hazard for anyone walking even in the day time. I note other sections of Spring Glen have had new sidewalks installed for similar reasons

Is this stretch of road one lane or two? Lane line stops coming down from Mix Ave. but people treat the rest of the road as a two lane road simply because it is wide.
What is the story here? If it is two lanes then there needs to be lane markings. The existing lane marks stop 200 feet from the intersection- please extend them.
But if this is truly meant to be a one lane road you need a sign indicating a lane ending, and you need yellows and whites! There are no markings whatsoever.

Someone has locked a padlock onto the railing of the pedestrian bridge in East Rock Park. Attaching "love locks" to bridges as a romantic gesture is a fad in Europe and now worldwide (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_lock), and if something like this takes off here the bridge will be covered with them in no time. Someone needs to get that thing off there ASAP!
Dixwell Ave Hamden, CT
The left turn signal light into Hamden Plaza while going northbound on Dixwell does not work correctly. (I believe.)
When the left turn light becomes green, the red light also stays active. I used to think this was because the other lanes would rely on this and they should not go if the southbound lanes also have a protected left arror. However, the red light stays active even if the two lights for non-turning northbound traffic become green.
