This is a real quality of life issue. As soon as the weather gets better the bikes and quads are out in force. The riders care nothing about their safety or yours. They ride through red lights and pass cars on the right at high rates of speed. They also destroy property such as the Mall on Edgewood, the archery field in Edgewood Park. No one wants to see these riders or anyone in their way injured by a high speed police chase but at the same time the problem needs to be addressed.so the bikes and quads are taken off the street.
While there was some coldpatch put in the holes, this stretch of road is continually erupting new holes. Maybe the Public works can let people know when the road is scheduled for complete repair.
Snow melted after a month. No snow removal of huge piles of snow was done. A better plowing policy in the future should be addressed.
Snow melted after a month of traffic nightmares. Winthrop is a main travel road. between Chapel,Derby and George streets. Traffic backs up when it is squeezed by cars parking out in the travel lanes. Buses and trucks cause more headaches. Better plowing policies in the future would definitely help.
Snow melted a month later. No snow removal of the issue was done.
I vote to give her a big ticket and a tow.
This section of Winthrop,(both lanes), has been deteriorating for several years. Its really gotten worse this year. You have to drive in the other lane to avoid the holes. Should be scheduled for a complete redo ASAP but in the meantime can we get COLDPATCH.
The pictures are great. This really is a bad stretch to drive through. If you don't the holes are so deep you are going to have damage to your tires or car.
some of the pothole are at least 3'wide and deep. How does anyone drive down this street at night without breaking an axle?
I reported this previously last year and in the fall of this year as well.Nothing was done.
The plants are dying back now so is not an issue at this time. This happens during the growing season May through October.
QOL issue. Small crimes lead to bigger disregard for the laws. This is not the place to be riding quads especially with a child and no helmets.
Maybe the light can be programmed to be longer at school times.
Government moves slowly.
Garbage was taken away from yard ,(much appreciated),but now there is a black trash bag sitting on the median. This house is unoccupied. There should be no garbage. A recurring problem with this property. Fence gates have been closed by area residents and are then found to be opened again. Weekly neighborhood clean up picks up litter in front of house.
Seems like this is getting to be more and more of a problem throughout the city. Maybe time to rethink the bulk trash system. Other towns have bulk pickup two times a year. It seems to work for them.
This is so dangerous to the cyclist. The law is ride with traffic not against it. Its safer for the cyclist and for drivers to avoid hitting them.
Sight lines on Winthrop are obscured in both directions so cars must creep up to see oncoming traffic on Edgewood. Really don't think a 3 way stop sign would be the best solution.It would create a lot of confusion. A light would just cause a lot of backups and would not really work well with the one way configurations of Edgewood Ave. People need to be alert and pay attention to the crossing traffic.
