Jewett St Ansonia, ConnecticutAnother blight issue on Jewett St that has been ignored. What's up with this dump? No one lives here and the place is packed full inside. I'm sure it's loaded with mice because there is a gap in the front door frame. This picture actually looks good but take a drive by now and there are kitchen cabinets that have been sitting outside for year now and the garage door is falling apart even more. WHERE IS THE BLIGHT OFFICER?????????????
128 Jewett St Ansonia, ConnecticutTake a walk by 128 Jewett St and tell me what you see. An RV vehicle that has sat with flat tires for at least 25 years and a lawn of weeds that never gets cut. The place is a freaking dump and the blight office should be ashamed of themselves.

I hope I am not the first to notice this, but I have already witnessed it several times and it's very dangerous.
The new Cumberland Farms does much more business than the old (as it should) and the traffic coming in and out of the new lot is heavy.
Unlike the old store, there is now a two way exit onto Division on the hill. I know the old store had a smaller exit there, but it didn't get the car count this one does.
In any event, people are trying to exit on Division and make a LEFT turn towards Pershing. This move is almost impossible during peak hours and very dangerous. I have seen cars try and force themselves out and block division flowing uphill as they wait for an opening at the intersection and, even worse, pull out into the turn only lane that is meant to take traffic towards CVS and then "gun it" to go straight when the light turns green to beat the cue of traffic that was waiting for a green signal to legally go straight.
There is going to be a major collision in the intersection from someone trying to go straight from the turn lane or someone getting hit broadside trying to rush across Division with cars flowing in a very busy stretch of road.
Like Stop & Shop, I firmly believe the exit onto Division must be "right turn only" before someone is injured or worse. A left turn is not allowed at Stop & Shop and should never have been permitted when the Cumberland Farms plans were approved because they can be an even more dangerous area.
How does this get studied and corrected?

1 Treemont Street Ansonia, Connecticut
Lately my commute has taken me through downtown Ansonia, especially when Division as closed. I was stunned that a topic I had seen here long ago has not been addressed.
Here in this photo is the INSANE TRAFFIC SIGNAL on Main Street at the corner of Treemont that about every 60 seconds almost around the clock turns red and stops Main Street for NO REASON.
Treemont is a one way so no traffic flows from it to Main. Bank of America is across and that is an EXIT from the bank. Cars from either side do not need to turn into the bank parking lot and need a signal to assist them,
Cars on Main heading towards Big Y have a VERY clear view if they are one of the few that wishes to turn left onto Treemont from Main to use one of the parking spaces. They can easily simply pause until clear and make a left turn. This has to be one out of 2000 cars that pass through.
The signal is not setup to turn red to let people out of the bank safely (the only logical reason for it to exist) because it turns red all morning and all night when the bank parking lot is empty. MAYBE if the purpose of this signal was to allow safe exit from the bank to make a left onto Main it may make some sense.
At the very least this signal needs to have a sensor added to ONLY go red when someone wants to exit the bank. Does the bank pay for this? Is the city unaware of this useless signal that is only a few hundred feet from the one at Big Y?
