  • 105 Court Street New Haven, Connecticut - Town_Green

    TT&P reported two and a half weeks ago that this signal had been recalibrated to detect bicycles on Court Street. https://seeclickfix.com/issues/1032330 Today was my first chance to test it. I am sorry to report that the signal continues to be unresponsive. I waited for about four minutes without any change. At one point I rode around in a circle, at which time the southbound signals on State St changed to red, but the northbound signals stayed green and my signal (Court St eastbound) stayed red. After about ten or fifteen seconds southbound State returned to green with my signal continuing to be red. There isn't any left turn from northbound State to westbound Court, so this signal behavior defies any logic I can see.

    TT&P, can you provide guidance on where the zone of maximum detection is likely to be and if there is anything a person can do to be more likely to be detected? Was riding in a circle actually likely to help? Would a flashing headlight be detected? Would waving my arms around help?

    205-215 York Street New Haven, Connecticut - Yale University Campus

    A pothole has just opened up at the corner of a patch in the road in the right-hand lane on York St adjacent to Jonathan Edwards College. The hole is roughly in line with the left wheel path of any vehicles in the right-hand lane.

    State Street North New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown

    Some of the potholes on this section of State St were patched, for which I am very grateful. However, there is still one large gap in the pavement stretching across the whole right-hand lane. It's at the second expansion joint north of Water St, roughly in line with the SE corner of the Knights of Columbus Museum. The gap has opened up where the asphalt roadway meets the concrete around the expansion joint.

    How is one supposed to get to or from the Career High School bike racks (located along Legion Ave) without biking on the sidewalk or going the wrong way on Rt 34?

    A cut was made to dig a trench across the westbound lanes on Chapel St between Orange and Church at some point and the patch job is coming apart. It needs some work. You get quite a jolt going over it at the moment.

    The street sign for Market St is completely missing. If you are heading down James and looking for Market St you would have no indication that you are passing right by it (that's what happened to an Arts & Ideas bike tour today).

    One or two additional bike racks in front of Elm Bar would be greatly appreciated.

  • 175 Olive Street New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown

    Every time I pull up to the intersection of Olive/Grove and State St I end up waiting for ages for the light to change before giving up and pressing the crosswalk button or running the red light. The signal detector completely fails to detect bicycles on Olive or Grove. Even when there is a car there, it will let several cycles of left turns from State Street go before it gives the green light to Olive/Grove. I would use this street on a regular basis if the signal actually functioned correctly.

    Cold weather prevented this bike lane on Humphrey St from getting its stripes last fall. Please don't forget to have them painted!

    A participant in the bike tour portion of this Saturday's Bike Walk CT statewide bike summit got a puncture due to excessive amounts of broken glass in the Crescent St bike lane. This reflected very poorly on New Haven, caused a 20-minute delay, and forced us to truncate our bike ride.

    300-398 College Street Yale University, New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Downtown

    Right-hand lane of Elm St at College St. Last week's weather opened up some old holes here. I notice that there are certain places that seem to be especially impacted by the wear and tear of buses (Elm at High, Elm at College, Temple at Chapel). I wonder if there is anything that could be done to reinforce these specific lanes to handle the heavy traffic in the long run.
