1-39 Hawthorn Street Hartford, Connecticut
Several months ago I reported that dangerous storm grates were being installed as part of the road construction associated with Fastrak station. It appears that the same style of grates continues to be installed. The grates have long slots parallel to the direction of travel and could cause a catastrophic bicycle crash. This style of storm grate has been phased out for obvious safety and liability reasons.
Curious how the contractor has managed to not correct this issue, particularly with design standards and a previous SeeClickFix report. The CT Fastrak project is clearly intended to serve more than car drivers, and I would expect the road projects adjacent to the stations to have special attention paid to "Complete Streets" design tenets.

I've been complaining about this property for 5+ years and nothing has ever been done. This building negatively affects all in the neighborhood. Front door window is broken and is very dangerous. It is overgrown and hazardous. Owner promised to have it fixed up spring 2014 and wears now headed into fall.
106-122 Wethersfield Avenue Hartford, Connecticut
Wethersfield Ave is currently under heavy construction for the storm drain and sewer separation. I've noticed that the striping of Wethersfield Ave further south did not update the lane arrangement to improve "Complete Streets" safety for cyclists and pedestrian road users.
Are bike lanes being considered for Wethersfield Ave? Can the travel lanes, parking lane, and turn lane be narrowed? Parking lanes can be be narrowed to 7 ft, and the travel lanes to 10 ft. The center turn lane could also be narrowed to 10 feet.
Simple changes to lane width would make a significant reduction in speeding, reduce crossing distance for pedestrians, and improve the neighborhood character of the street. If the lane width reduction were implemented there would be an opportunity to implement 3-4 foot wide bike lanes. Since the bike lanes are not a minimum of 5 ft wide, they would be unofficial marked buffer lanes beside the parking lane. Alternatively, Wethersfield Avenue could incorporate "sharrows" and "Share the Road signage.
It is a popular street for commuting bicyclists, and continuing Hartford's car centric road design patterns is dangerous and doesn't promote a sustainable city. Thanks for your attention to this important issue.

Someone left a car tire on the curb near 37 Alden Street. Does this get picked up with bulk pickup?
There are several more tires on the northbound side of Wethersfield Ave as you approach Wylls (Between Wylls and Stonington). They have been there for almost a month.
Thanks for your help! Not sure why jerks leave their waste on the curb without making arrangements for pickup.
If it wasn't a car tire, I'd simply grab them and throw into our condo dumpster. I don't think you can simply dispose of car tires with household waste though.
Elm Court Windsor, Connecticut
After yesterday's heavy rains, there is an accumulation of leaves and twigs at both sewers on the left and right of the street. The two newly installed sewers seems to be lower than the previous ones and have clogged faster.
Thanks! Thanked!Founders Rd East Hartford, Connecticut
The highway going both East and West has been milled for over 2 weeks. It seems as if after the milling nothing is swept up. Every morning going to work there is dust and rocks flying through the air. My car as well as everyone else's is getting hit, with resulting paint chips and marks on the windshield. Even this morning, after all the rain we had, there was a lot of debris flying. If you look at the roadway you can see piles of stones between the lines and along the sides. Why aren't they sweeping this up. I have never seen this much debris left after road milling anywhere else. I drove on 91 when they resurfaced it from Windsor to Enfield and it was never this bad.
Barker And Franklin Hartford, Connecticut
No parking signs need to be installed on corner of franklin and south side of Barker St. Cars park on south side of Barker St. all the way to the corner making it impassable to two-way traffic.
