Intersection Near Whitney Ave And Sherman Ave Hamden, Connecticut
At 10:50pm on June 25th, 2014, a horse was wandering and crossing the street at the intersection near Whitney and Sherman Avenues (where the 2 churches are located). It was pitch black at night and the horse as well as the rider, who presumably was trying to regain control of the horse on foot, did not have any reflectors or light sources to make their presence known. The horse was slowly walking throughout the street in both directions of traffic, while traffic was stopped. No other vehicles used their indicator lights or horns to caution other drivers.
The young woman trying to direct the horse through traffic wore a light blue shirt and shorts. 911 was contacted regarding the issue, but was unsure if the call was taken seriously. The lighting of this section of this street could be adjusted because visibility was negligible.

The sign with the speed limit and no parking was removed from in front of 91 School St.
It is laying in the parking lot at Eli's Pizza.

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.

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 responsible city officials take pre emptive action on these projects before they get worse. Does anyone like that work here for local government?

More dumping of household trash, furniture and plumbing in plain view on the Home Depot parking lot in Hamden.
Hamden seems to be a magnet for illegal dumpers. Whether it is the Farmington Canal Path, private dumpsters, or here next door. Its hard to get away from. Other towns successfully capture illegal activity with cameras. Why can't we?
UPDATE: Originally posted on 7/17/14, it is now 11/16/14, and this household garbage remains as an eyesore sitting behind the Home Depot parking lot in Hamden four months later. What is it that keeps this trash from being taken away? Whether its the town of Hamden, Home Depot, or another property owner of the parking lot grounds, will someone please grow up, take responsibility and spend the relatively small amount off money to take this garbage away.
There's a lot of illegal dumping around here, but that doesn't mean the town shouldn't care about moving it out of public view and disposing it.
Its been four months, Hamden. Someone in Town Hall should be embarrassed by this. Do something!

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.
