There has been a wooden road barrier left at 57 Pearl St on the corner of Pleasant St since the Christopher Martins Road Race. I called city hall on Monday to let them know, but still no one has come to get it. I don't know what department is responsible for these road barriers.
28 Eld St New Haven, Connecticut
Manhole cover -> loud double bang. Needs cushioning gasket and to be re-seated.
The manhole over outside 28 Eld is again making noise when cars drive over it. The bang is loudest when cars are speeding over to Orange St, ie, at night when folks are trying to sleep.
Could we get his manhole cover fixed again, and include a gasket? The manhole cover noise was reduced when Doug was alder, but the fix didn't last, perhaps because part of the fix
was to put pavement over the cover, rather than to reseat with a gasket or shims.
Clark St has a similar problem -- who else has loud manhole covers?
Let's get a list together so they can be addressed at the same time.

Orange Street New Haven, Connecticut
at the corner of crown and orange, in front of the 44 Orange Street Residences at ninth square building, the pedestrian signal continuously beeps all throughout the night despite no foot traffic. My bedroom window is right above it and its quite loud and disturbing.....Thank you.
Thanks! Thanked!889 State Street New Haven, Connecticut
The intersection of State and Humphrey Street in New Haven is very pedestrian unfriendly. There are several very active businesses and restaurants in the vicinity, additionally the probate and probation building have great pedestrian activity. I cross this intersection back and forth at least three times a day on foot and have seen and experienced many close calls. Typically after pressing the pedestrian pole button it take 2-3 cycles or cars in both directions before the pedestrian crossing is indicated, even if there is little or no vehicle traffic. If there are two or three fellow pedestrians at adjacent corners pressing the buttons sometimes it will trigger a little faster. One side of the intersection is quite a bit wider than the other and the pedestrian timer gives barely enough time to get across without breaking into a trot. Most of the time drivers make right turns on reds while the walking man signal is up anyway and ignore the pedestrian crossing lights all together. I have learned to simply cross when there are no cars coming and it's safe, not by the pole indicators. Perhaps additional signage to alert drivers that they need to yield to pedestrians when the crossing lights are active would be helpful. It's really only a matter of time before someone is hurt at this intersection.
431 Orange Street New Haven, Connecticut
Myself and my co-workers park in lot #131 behind 431 Orange. We must cross the busy Orange/Trumbull intersection to get to the south side of Trumbull street. There is so much snow piled at the corner of Orange next to the parking lot entrance that you can't reach the pedestrian traffic button, and you have to climb over large snowbanks to enter into the street to cross. Can someone please clear the snow on this corner so that we can cross this dangerous intersection safely? Thank you very much!

Hello I am writing to report the on ramp to I-91 using the ramp entrance from State St. I am aware that I have a "YIELD" and need to be sure no one is coming from the orange street ramp. However I STOP instead. When entering the I-91 Ramp from Orange St, I also stop before the on ramp from State St. becasue very seldom do I see anyone slow down by the "yield" or make sure the road is clear. I am very worried that their will be a severe accident their some day. I believe their needs to be a BIG STOP sign on the ramp entrance from state st. instead of the yield sign that is not to big and is placed right at the entrance way.
