Notified About

  • Albany Street And Pacific Street Intersection Cambridge, MA - Cambridgeport
    This intersection has a raised brick "crosswalk" but no painted white stripe lines. The result is that cars driving down Albany rarely yield for pedestrians in an area with a large student population.

  • Third Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - Mit
    This intersection was recently redesigned and a northbound bike lane was included to cross Broadway via 3rd. But there is absolutely no v
    isible traffic signal for bicyclists to cross Broadway on Third. It's absolutely dangerous and an unbelievable oversight...

    You need to re-engineer how the bikes come across prospect at Broadway and Prospect Street, right now the pinch keeps pinging bikes into the rear of the parked cars, putting in a bike lane giving a delayed signal, putting the bikes in the center as opposed to off to the side make much more sense

    Daily, delivery trucks park in both the bicycle and motor vehicle lanes. This picture is from yesterday. Today at about 7:45 am there were 3 trucks lined up. This is extremely dangerous for cyclists and slows down motor vehicle traffic significantly.

  • 207 Harvard Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - The Port
    Part of the bricks on the sidewalk are sinking in and form a large puddle during rainstorms. There are 3 young toddlers in our building, so it would be great get the sidewalk leveled a bit more to prevent the puddling.

    Rooster in the city ? .... There is a rooster that crows at all hours of the day , it starts at 5am ! And is very annoying . This is not something someone living in the city would expect . I have seen the chickens and roosters in the children's park next door . Not very safe /sanitary . As well as him letting his dog loose with out a leach as well . This is not acceptable and not very neighborly of them . They might want to live in the country side where it's normal for these actions .The house address is -58 Allston st

    Illegally parked truck, blocking the bike lane. This is the same truck in the same location at approximately the same time (8:00 a.m.) as yesterday - either CPD wasn't able to issue a citation yesterday or the company doesn't care. As with yesterday, today I called CPD at the time of the illegal parking.

  • 150 Broadway Cambridge, Massachusetts - The Port
    This is no way to treat people on the busiest bike route in the state. The contractor helpfully made a temporary sidewalk, they should use the same materials to shut down a lane of car traffic for bikes, too, and not have to resort to a hand written sign which I'm pretty sure is not MUTCD compliant
