700 Capitol Ave And Highway 84 Overpass near Forest St - Frog Hollow
There is an illegal trash dumping site under highway 84 and Capitol Ave near Forest St. in Hartford Ct. There are old toilets, tires, construction debris and mattreses. The City of Hartford and the DOT refuse to acknowledge their resposibility to cleaning up this unsitely safety hazard. This area is very close to Hartford High School and is traveled by students. It is also a disturbng eye sore as you enter into the Capitol City. This is the imagine that most people see as they enter and leave into Hartford. The lasting imagine.
This area is on Capitol Ave under the highway near Hartford HS. This area is extremely dangerous due to uneven spaling concrete sidewalks, no lighting, collaping fences and rats.

60 Elm St Hartford, CT 06103, USA - Downtown
Need "stop for pedestrians" signs in crosswalks aroun Pulaski Circle, specifically on elm and Hudson. People coming off the circle treat those roads like runways and there are often people with children and dogs crossing to and from bushnell park
764 Park St Hartford, CT 06106, USA - Frog Hollow
The gymnasium part of St. Anne's has a fresh batch of graffiti on the side facing Park Street. There has long been some on it, but in recent days a significant more has been added. It's not the type of work that remotely fits into the category of art and should probably be removed.
Somewhat related -- the gymnasium part of the building is somewhat of an eyesore, as there is just this swath of bleak concrete. Maybe the church could add some planters filled with flowers and plants to this side. It'd make the building look less vacant and probably less appealing as a target for vandals.
update: as of January 2011 the graffiti is still present

Dog owners should be reminded that they should pickup after their dogs after they poop. it is a city ordinance that they have to obey . it is nasty and unhealthy.city needs to do something about this .plus these people also do not have their dogs registered.dog warden should do his job.not just getting a paycheck from the city which is our tax dollars.when we call their office they do not answer the phone as if they were really busy . like doing what ? useless department .wasting our tax dollars doing nothing.
2-98 Central Row Hartford, CT 06103, USA - Downtown
Some kind of bird atop either the Old State House or an adjacent building spends several hours each afternoon squawking VERY loudly. It's nice to have wildlife coexisting with humanity and all that, but this is a bit much. I can hear the %#$@ thing clearly inside my office a block away.
If it isn't an endangered species, can Animal Control kindly remove this territorial critter to a better habitat?
2-32 Morgan Street Hartford, Connecticut - Downtown
at this intersection of Morgan & Trumbull (heading west), there are four lanes of travel. midway down the block, there is a sign indicating that the leftmost lane is for turning left onto Trumbull (towards the Hilton), the left middle lane heads onto the I84 entrance ramp, the right middle lane goes onto Chapel St North, and the rightmost lane can either go onto Chapel St North or turn right onto Trumbull.
The PROBLEM is that 99% of the time the people in the leftmost lane do not turn left, but head straight onto the entrance ramp (it is directly across from this lane of travel), creating two lanes heading into the same one lane. I have almost died here numerous times. It is extremely dangerous to be in the CORRECT lane because you have to anticipate the car to your left is going to head straight even tho they should be turning.
The SOLUTION is to put another sign AT THE INTERSECTION informing the left-laners that they must turn left, or paint the directional arrows right onto the pavement so people know the left lane is turn only.
1-39 Hawthorn Street Hartford, Connecticut - Asylum Hill
Several months ago I reported that dangerous storm grates were being installed as part of the road construction associated with Fastrak station. It appears that the same style of grates continues to be installed. The grates have long slots parallel to the direction of travel and could cause a catastrophic bicycle crash. This style of storm grate has been phased out for obvious safety and liability reasons.
Curious how the contractor has managed to not correct this issue, particularly with design standards and a previous SeeClickFix report. The CT Fastrak project is clearly intended to serve more than car drivers, and I would expect the road projects adjacent to the stations to have special attention paid to "Complete Streets" design tenets.
