State Street North New Haven, Connecticut
This busy stretch of New Haven roadway, one of the few logical ways to get from Union Station to downtown is painted with a meager shared lane marking for cyclists. It's a bit frustrating.
Orange St also has only sharrows for much of its length. One can find evidence of even more relatively useless shared lane markings being added all over the city instead of actual bike lanes. Even traditional class 2 bike lanes are pretty outmoded these days, let alone sharrows.
It would be nice to bike with less anxiety and fear in New Haven.
Temple St. New Haven, CT
There's a 1.5-foot-diameter and 8-inch-deep (at least) pothole in the center lane of Temple St, just south of Elm St.
The pothole's location is especially dangerous for bicyclists because it's in a place where cyclists pay heightened attention to rapidly shifting traffic, due to buses' lane changes.
College St Between Elm And Congress New Haven, CT
For several blocks from Elm St. to Congress Ave. there are stripes of newly refilled asphalt, where it looks like conduit or pipe work has been done and then covered.
There have always been fine cracks between the old and newly refilled asphalt. These cracks are slowly growing. The cracks are a few feet left of the parking lanes, exactly where cyclists are told to ride.
College St. in this area is rife with double-parking, so cars frequently change lanes. The potholes are still shallow, but they're wide enough to track a tire, which could easily knock cyclists underneath moving cars. It's especially dangerous when it rains because drivers rush and can't see well, and cyclists are more likely to slip.
A couple solutions:
1. When refilling partially cut asphalt, use something besides asphalt to seal the joints, or put a new, smooth top layer down over the entire span of the road.
2. Paint bike-share symbols along College St. in this area.
3. Designate a loading area and decrease metered parking time limits during frequent loading hours (I know, this would suck; I drive, too). This would reduce the amount of double-parking and thus chaotic driving.

It's a trench that runs from curb to middle of travel lane. Patch has dropped down about 2 inches. Particularly dangerous for cyclists. This was previously posted (https://en.seeclickfix.com/issues/1700267) and partially repaired. It is a poorly repaired utility trench. The previous repair was only to part of the trench. The unrepaired part of the trench travels through a parking space. When that space is empty, a cyclist can easily fall prey to the trench.

140-190 Crown Street New Haven, Connecticut
Two large potholes on Crown Street located between Temple and Church streets (closer to Church). They are on the right lane close to the side entrance of Gateway. There are two large potholes which have been previously filled but keep returning. Hitting either of these could cause serious damage. They are a liability to the City and need to be addressed immediately.

Just a note to say that the past few days there has been a whole lot of trash scattered all over the New Haven Green. It seems much worse than other times, even compared to early last summer. Embarrassing to walk through there with visiting out-of-towners, and sad for those of us who really love using the Green as a public space. It's the center of the city we're so proud of; it shouldn't be covered in garbage.

This issue was previously reported (https://en.seeclickfix.com/issues/1700267) and marked closed, but it was not fully repaired - they got half the pothole, presumably the half that was not under the parked car when they did the repair.
Also, this was flagged by Public Works as a Utility Repair issue. Clearly there is a trench there that was incompletely filled. I know that getting utilities to do the repairs is a long standing problem, and that Public Works ends up holding the bag, but what is the process for making sure that utilties do, in fact, clean up their mess?
