972 State St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Bishop-Hine
JP Demspeys is attracting motorcycles to the neighborhood that make it unliveable. This needs to stop and we need the police's help. There are three bike parked out front right now and I am waiting for an officer but I have not had luck w the police's help in the past.
We need traffic stops for decibel meters on State Street.
Willow St./ Nicoll St. Intersection (East Rock) New Haven/East Rock, Connecticut - East Rock
Speeding down Willow St. as vehicles come off of I-91 is a major safety concern, especially given the vicinity of East Rock Elementary School and high volume of pedestrian traffic as you enter the residential East Rock neighborhood.
Suggestions to reduce speeding:
1) Speed Limit Signs Needed on Willow St. : Currently, there is a noticeable absence of speed limit signs, and none are posted on the east or west bound sides of Willow St. from the stretch from the I-91 exit ramp until after Orange St.
2) Addition of Stop Signs at Willow/Nicoll St. Intersection: This busy intersection has been a magnet for car and pedestrian accidents for years, and the addition of east and west bound stop signs at the Willow/Nicoll St. intersection could be a quick and inexpensive effort to slow traffic, reduce speeding and hopefully mitigate future accidents. Note: There is currently a traffic light at Willow St./Mitchell Dr., but once past the light, vehicles speed on Willow St. past the Nash St. and Nicoll St. intersections.
Willow St./ Nicoll St. Intersection New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
As a major through road, Willow St. (specifically the intersection at Willow St. & Nicoll St.) desperately needs to be repaved and re-marked/re-striped! The road and intersection is laden with uneven pavement, divots and potholes, which are not only hazardous to vehicles and pedestrians, but also result in loud, unnecessary noise in a residential area, especially when large trucks and commercial vehicles speed down Willow St. The very worn out pavement marking and stripping at the intersection is also a hazard to pedestrians as speeding cars are not properly signaled that they are driving through a very busy pedestrian crossing area.
55-61 Audubon Street New Haven, CT 06510, USA - Town_Green
Abandon dog tied up behind ACES on Audubon Street. Part pit bull part boxer. Animal Control does not answer the phone and the police said to call animal Control. Mailbox of Animal Control officer filled so I called my Alderman to see if he could help. Went looking for police officer on Whitney, none to be found.
Humphrey Street Between State And Orange. - SOHU
Loud motorcycles frequently speed down Humphrey Street, breaking both the speed limits and the municipal noise ordinance. Some are coming from the bars on State Street/Humphrey Street. Others are getting off I-91 and speed down Humphrey on their way downtown.
210 Willow St New Haven, CT 06511 - East Rock
Formerly a dry cleaning business, the building is in extremely unsafe condition: leaking roof, broken windows, rotting floor, rear door unsecured. There is old dry cleaning equipment, probably dry cleaning chemical contamination and waste, asbestos from a rusting boiler, and the building's foundation is rotten and open to the elements creating a rodent problem and allowing rainwater to enter and possibly contaminate groundwater and the surrounding soil with pollutants.
Bradley At State New Haven, CT - Downtown
Help us make the Bradley/State Intersection safe!
In April 2012 we submitted a New Haven Complete Streets project request to improve the safety of motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists at the intersection of Bradley and State (attached).
This application requested bump-outs to improve visibility on State Street at Bradley Street -- or a traffic light.
The Engineering Department of the City replied that our problem would be assessed by “ . . . verification of speeds and volumes on the road, traffic accident data and a physical review of the road and its context within the neighborhood.”
This measure alone will not illustrate how difficult and dangerous it is to exit Bradley. We need you to document your experiences with this intersection in the comments below.
Thank you for supporting the application, and safer streets for all.
103 Bishop St New Haven, CT 06511 - Bishop-Hine
I often see, or hear, the big blue and white Yale school bus flying up Bishop Street with the pedal to the medal. The bus screams by, both in speed and sound, revving its engine flying up to Orange Street as if it was heading to YNHH with someone in labor. If a child or person who'd been drinking too much happened to wander into the road, ferget it! Two points for that driver. I tried to tell a cop who was parked on Bishop when I got home tonight, but no one was in the cruiser at the time. I think NHPD oughta park themselves with a speed detector and ticket whoever's racing up and down our streets.
