Route 4 from Bemis Heights to 8 mile north is disgraceful. This is the last ride for many of our Veterans to their final resting place at the Gerald B.H. Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery and the road has to be one of the worst in the county. It is a total dishonor to these brave men and women to have to travel their last miles on such a horrible road. The 100 yard section before the turn off to the cemetery was nicely paved BUT the rest is in such disrepair that the whole thing needs to be replaced. What is the state going to do about it.
22 St Charles Pl Saratoga Springs, NY 12866, USA
The January water-main break on St. Charles Place required the city to dig a sizable hole to repair the break. The hole was filled and blacktop was poured on top. That blacktop was never given adequate time to harden and the traffic moving over it has created a very wide and deep hole. St Charles has a blind curve and there are several children who live on the block.
In addition to the water-main break causing damage to the road it also highlighted the fact that the drainage on St Charles is not adequate. In any heavy rain or thaw condition St Charles floods in the area at the apex of the blind turn. This drainage problem is a hazard to drivers and a hazard to the foundations of the homes at the turn.
The town needs to resurface the street and keep it closed until the material has had a chance to cure. The town should also add curbs to the street, at the very least at the section where the street bends. Too many cars drive too fast on St Charles and a curb would help mitigate the risk of flooding and help prevent vehicles from potentially hitting any homes.
Grove St Saratoga Springs, NY 12866, USA
Whenever traffic gets the greenlight for a left turn from the arterial onto Broadway, the Grove St. light always turns red and traffic sits there for no reason, i.e. no traffic leaving Grove St., no pedestrians crossing Broadway. This is very annoying. What gives?
100 Town Of Wilton Corinth Mountain Rd Gansevoort, NY 12831, USA
This road with it's steep incline/decline and 20 mph curves has been repaved for quite some time. In it's steepest, curviest sections, there is no lnes on the road at all. I have had several close calls with people coming into my lane.
495-509 Broadway Ave Saratoga Springs, NY 12866, USA
Someone is going to get hit by a car at this location. When walking South on Broadway, it is almost impossible to see cars coming down Walton Street. To make it even worse, cars do not stop at the crosswalk. They keep going until they are completely through it, and usually past the stop sign, to the point where they'll be able to turn.
I've seen SEVERAL near misses here, and I've nearly been struck on a few occasions. These bushes are a nuisance, and need to come down.
2-28 Spring St Saratoga Springs, NY 12866, USA
I work at night in Saratoga, and need to get on Rt 50 to go home. Any time I pull up to the light from Spring St. to take a left on Broadway at night, the light either doesn't change or takes forever to change. I try pulling up, pulling back, going in the right turn lane; nothing seems to work. I have a pretty heavy truck so I know it's not the weight of my vehicle. If there is a sensor there and not a timer, something is definitely wrong with it. Please fix! There is a "No Turn On Red" there, and I sometimes have to resort to turning on a red, because the light never turns green!
~152 Nelson Ave Saratoga Springs, NY 12866, USA
After successfully navigating around various hole-based hazards all winter, i managed to hit the mother of all potholes. It measures somewhere between 8 inches and 2 feet deep. It's a doozey. I have never hit a pothole that deep in my life, and i grew up on dirt roads. It is in a narrow portion of the road, and very tough to see at night, especially when filled with with runoff water. It is located directly in the path of your right tire if you are heading northbound on Nelson, shortly after you pass Lincoln. I will probably have to replace a spring now. And a wheel. And a tire. And get an alignment. Sweet. Not my idea of economic recovery......
274-298 Old Post Rd Ballston Spa, NY 12020, USA
The end of the driveway has about a six inch drop due to the city having paved the road over and over and not making it level with the drive there. Because of this drop people that live there have to come to a stop before entering their driveway...there has been numerous accidents at the end of that drive due to people not realizing they are turning into that driveway.
