  • Delaware Expy Philadelphia, PA - Marconi Plaza-Packer Park

    Coming out of the lower level of the Girard Point Bridge, there are always slow-moving cars in the passing lane. Police should enforce PA state law that slower traffic MUST stay right except to pass.

  • South St & Interstate 76 Philadelphia, PA - Cobbs Creek

    When this light timing was updated earlier this year, it switched the right turn signal from the expressway to South Street before the full-green signal. This would be great, but drivers often expect that their signal will be after the full green, and therefore don't notice when the light actually turns green.

    Add another light, closer to eye level, to catch the attention of right turning drivers. Or take away their licenses. Really doesn't matter to me.

  • 3000 South St Philadelphia, PA - Cobbs Creek

    Motorists scared of merging from the left onto the Schuylkill in both directions slow down and frequently stop on these ramps. This makes merging more difficult and causes traffic jams on the mainline at almost any time of day.

    To encourage drivers to either merge properly or use a ramp that requires less skill, add "DO NOT STOP ON RAMP" sign near the left and right turn signals.

  • 22nd And Race Philadelphia, PA - Logan Square

    Race St. has virtually no traffic (pedestrian or vehicular) at this intersection, yet it has a long green that interrupts the flow of traffic on 22nd St.

    At the very least, re-time this light and synchronize it with the 21st and Race intersection. The better solution would be to install induction loops and pedestrian request buttons and making this an on-request only intersection.

  • S Christopher Columbus Blvd Philadelphia, PA - Riverfront

    All of the signals on this section of Columbus Blvd need to be synchronized. The massive backups that occur here are solely due to poor signal timing.

  • Paint is gone Archived
    Schuykill Ave W Philadelphia, PA - Cobbs Creek

    Lane paint is COMPLETELY gone from the northbound lanes of Schuylkill Ave between Chestnut and Market. Motorists have no idea how many lanes there are.

  • 200 N 23rd St Philadelphia, PA - Logan Square

    The shrubs between the 676 mainline and the exit ramp are overgrown so as to thin the usable width of the exit lane.

  • 2961 Arch St Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA - Cobbs Creek

    Ever since the timing on this light was changed in February, rush hour traffic backs all the way back to 21st St on I-676 West. Cars trying to get onto 76 East cannot get around the long queue on the ramp. The light needs to be retimed back to the way it was immediately.

  • Mound of snow Archived
    313-399 N 22nd St Philadelphia, PA 19130, USA - Logan Square

    There is a mound of snow in the right turn lane that will take months to melt if left there.

  • 2961-2979 Arch St Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA - Cobbs Creek

    The #44 SEPTA bus hit the "DO NOT ENTER" sign at the exit ramp. It has been sitting on the pavement ever since, and Philly 311 operators have been useless at solving this issue.

  • 40th And Spruce Philadelphia, PA - Cobbs Creek

    40th St and Spruce St need to be repaved completely wherever the trolley tracks go.

  • Schuylkill Expy Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA - Fairmount-Spring Garden

    This turn is too flat for most large vehicles to take at proper speed, which causes backups. When it is redesigned, camber should be increased to allow for greater speeds.

  • 2301 John F Kennedy Blvd Philadelphia, PA 19103, USA - City Center West

    Congestion on 676 currently backs up to this ramp, preventing travelers from reaching 76, which is usually wide open. When the ramp is rebuilt, it should have two lanes: one for I-76 west and one for I-676 east.

  • Needs another lane Acknowledged
    Interstate 76 & U.S. 30 Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA - Cobbs Creek

    Design standards dictate that the number of lanes entering and exiting an expressway are balanced. In this case, that would mean that the westbound ramp from 676 to 76 needs two lanes to match the eastbound lane flow.

  • 1537 Vine St Philadelphia, PA 19102, USA - Logan Square

    The ramp is not striped in a way that encourages acceleration onto the mainline of the expressway. The turn radius should begin to increase as soon as possible so that merging traffic can accelerate to mainline speeds more quickly.

  • 1537 Vine St Philadelphia, PA 19102, USA - Logan Square

    It is absurd that the "No turn on red" sign stays in effect all day. It should have a 6AM-6PM time limit like many others in the city.

  • 16 S 34th St Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA - Cobbs Creek

    Pedestrians on crossing 34th St on the south side of Market start crossing before they get the light. This causes left turn traffic from Market to back up, frustrating drivers and creating more of a hazard for pedestrians. There should be a sign directly adjacent to the walk signal that says, "Pedestrians: WAIT FOR SIGNAL" or "WARNING: WAIT FOR SIGNAL."

    Schuylkill Ave needs to be resurfaced.
