Issues: pedestrian light
386 Whitney Ave New Haven, CT 06511
The crosswalk button for pedestrians hoping to cross Whitney Avenue is not reliable. Most of the time pedestrians must cross Whitney Ave without benefit walk signal. While traffic is routinely moving at 35-40mph thru this intersection.
290 Grand Ave New Haven, CT 06513
This is a dangerous mid-block intersection that currently lacks a crosswalk, shark tooth markings, crosswalk sign, crosswalk lights, yield signs, curb extensions or other measures that would make it safer to cross. It is right next to a public school serving 600 children. A recipe for disaster.
Water St New Haven, CT 00
This is a major bicycle and pedestrian intersection (part of the Harborside Greenway) yet there are no walk signals. The button on the southeast corner of the intersection is damaged. Since this is part of Route 1, shouldn't it be the state's responsibility to fix this dangerous condition?

As nobody is usually crossing the freeway ramp, the walk signal should stay on don't walk most of the time. Walk should only be activated when the button is pushed by a pedestrian.
Overall bridge design is poor based on obtuse angles that eliminate the ability to make a right turn on red.
I actually endured this traffic light sequence from the other direction at 9 a.m. the other day. I was exiting Interstate 90 westbound, wanting to make a left on Bishop. I sat through the complete cycle including two 10 second periods when no cars traveled through the intersection on Bishop.
Once enough time has been wasted the Walk/Don't Walk light begins flashes 15 times (15 seconds) before changing to don't walk, enabling the light to change and not endanger pedestrians.
There are buttons at the crossing points that allow pedestrians to request the right of way to change, why the highway designers and Wickilffe officials who set up this intersection refuse to rely on the walkers to be smart enough to utilize them is unfortunate.
Court Street And State Street Intersection New Haven, CT
New pedestrian crossing signals at State and Court are either out of order or incredibly poorly timed. One can wait more than four minutes for a walk signal, and this is dangerous; people pile up at the intersection and then cross against the light because there seems to be no other way of getting to the train station.
60 Trumbull St New Haven, CT
The timing of this light is ridiculous. Traffic (heading towards Hamden on Whitney) that wants to turn right onto Trumbull when the light turns green can not proceed because its at this exact time that the pedestrian crossing light tells them to turn. This is a turning lane and should be free to turn when green. All traffic should have to stop when pedestrian lights turn on. This is not the case. Sometimes, cars can turn at all if pedestrian traffic is thick (like in the mornings and evenings) which further slows traffic. Please retime the pedestrian lights to give an all-go while all traffic lights should be red.
Elm & York New Haven, CT
This morning, the walk signal on the South side of Elm, going across York St, was faulty. It started the countdown from 59 seconds, or so, and then proceeded to jump over large gaps of numbers. For an example, the signal might have displayed 49-48-24. This occurred two or three times during one light cycle.
This is very dangerous for pedestrians.
201-213 Norton Pkwy New Haven, CT 06511, USA
The walk Signal button on the corner of Elm and Norton doesn't work. I was trying to cross the street with my baby in the stroller n stood there for more than 5 minutes waiting for the walk sign while pressing the button every time the traffic light changed.
