  • English Drive New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock

    I noticed a small rockslide just below the beginning of the Giant Steps on English Drive. The rocks go all the way across the road, making it dangerous for cyclists passing by. Thanks.

    Looks like a futon or bed this time dumped over the stone wall right as you had into the big switchback climbing up to the summit on Farnam Drive.

    Once again - someone dumps a pile of their crap in beautiful East Rock Park. How about some "creative" enforcement here NHPD, like you did for the illegal dirt bikes! "Nuisance" crime indeed...

    There's a newly-broken section of stone wall along the auto road just below the summit of East Rock.

    A set of bike racks is needed on the Willoughby's side of Church/Whitney and Grove Streets. There's a rack next to the People's Bank building across the street, but we could definitely use another rack across the street on either side of Willoughy's: around the corner either west on Grove Street or south on Church Street. You'll notice quite a few bikes locked to meters around here, and I've had my own bike damaged here by locking up to a parking meter. Thanks for adding this to the list of bike rack requests!

    Dangerous for cyclists ascending/descending! Thanks for the periodic upkeep that is being done here, but the last pothole fill is starting to come out. Please re-check all potholes the whole length of Farnam Drive from the Davis Street intersection down to East Rock Road, on both sides of the road. Thanks!

    I noticed a large rockslide across English Drive yesterday evening: the largest rockslide I've seen up there in some time. I'm guessing it was all the rain overnight on Tuesday: you can almost see a washout channel from the ridge above the road here. Be careful if you're on a bike: a couple of the boulders are HUGE!

    There is a small to mid sized tree down across about half of the road as English Drive ascends just a little past the gate at the bottom of East Rock. I tried to move it myself but I think it needs someone with a chainsaw. Thanks!

    Farnum Dr New Haven, CT 06511, USA - East Rock

    I notice a continuing series of large potholes on either side of Farnum Drive between Orange Street and East Rock Road right in the lane of travel for cyclists riding up and down East Rock. I've noticed this is an ongoing issue and that they do get temporarily patched, but several large potholes seem to keep opening up. (I know a lot of water accumulates here which I'm sure contributes to the recurring problem.) I rode through here yesterday evening (24 May 2011) and there were several gnarly open potholes...

    I notice a continuing series of potholes on either side of Orange Street between Bradley and Eld Streets, right where cyclists are riding. Thanks for the patching that has been applied recently, but it seems to quickly fall out, perhaps due to all the inclement weather we've been having.

    There's a pretty large pothole here right where cyclists will be descending from East Rock: an accident waiting to happen...

  • 945 Whitney Ave Hamden, CT 06517, USA - Hamden

    I noticed at least a half dozen large garbage bags presumably thrown off the side of Farnum Drive here, just south of the loop. I can only imagine what's in them...

    I noticed two large potholes while riding my bike down Farnum Drive yesterday. There are several rough patches here, but again two large potholes in particular as you begin to descend past the main parking area entrance on Farnum Drive. A cyclist could really have a nasty crash here...

    There is small tree fallen across the trail around the base of East Rock, right before it ascends to meet English Drive by the baseball diamond in Rice Field. I tried to move it myself but it was just too awkward for one person. A chainsaw would be helpful. Thanks.

    The addition of the second in-street pedestrian sign here this spring was a noticeable improvement to this intersection's safety. Now it's back down to only one in-street sign. This is a wide, dangerous intersection with drivers rushing down Trumbull Street to and from the highway entrances. Please bring back that second in-street sign!

    I almost saw a couple of pedestrians struck down by a driver plowing through this dangerous intersection over the long holiday weekend. This is another intersection on Orange Street that urgents needs an in-street pedestrian sign, and some creative undercover traffic enforcement as well.

    A huge tree has fallen across the trail sometime over the last couple of days. It must have been during the recent strong winds. If you make a right at the dirt trail at the end of Orange Street and head toward the Colonial Spring, parallel to English Drive, you can't miss it: it's completely blocking the trail! Looks like a beautiful old tree, too. RIP...

    I noticed a bunch of car tires (I saw three but wouldn't be surprised if there was a whole car's worth, or four tires) on the south side of English Drive between Orange Street and the closed-off English Drive ascent, near where FERP did such nice work restoring the park benches last year.

    With decent weather returning, a couple of in-street pedestrian signs are needed back in this intersection to remind drivers that they must yield to pedestrians here. Drivers were getting pretty good when the signs were in place last spring, summer, and fall, but their behavior has changed noticeably--for the worse--once they were removed during the winter.
