  • Harvard Street Medford, MA 02155, USA - Medford

    For years residents have pleaded the mayors office to address the overwhelming problems with traffic volume and commercial trucking on Harvard Street. To this day they have been unresponsive.

    I'd like to report the mayor's office as the overriding ClickFix issue. Please repair this break in the city infrastructure or make room for someone who will.

  • South St And Main St Medford, MA 02155 - Medford

    There is a traffic light installed at this intersection - but it desperately needs to be turned on! Right now it just blinks red. Very, very dangerous -- as well as long traffic backups.

    Hi, this is a nice feature. Just wondering if Medford could install leading left green arrows at the intersection of Rte 60 and the Fellsway. This intersection is very dangerous, and I think green arrows for the traffic flowing on Rte 60 would be very helpful in reducing accidents and rush hour(s) traffic. Thanks so much.

    The presence of dogs and their owners is one of the few things keeping this park safer than it otherwise would be (especially at night).

    Here are some positive things that I've witnessed:

    -Dog owners are the closest thing we have to a neighborhood watch, especially now that it's getting darker earlier and the lighting in the park is VERY inadequate at night.

    -Dog owners keep the drug dealers from completely taking over the area.

    -Dog owners are the only ones who get together to clean the park of the dangerous broken glass, grocery carts, and other litter that is left behind.

    -I have never witnessed the small dogs that make the majority ever threaten small children and have only ever seen kids playing with the small dogs.

    Instead of focusing on removing a positive influence to Morrison Park, how about focusing on what is really wrong with area?

    -Last year there was a stabbing in Morrison Park.

    -Recently I saw a group of girls viciously beat another in plain daylight.

    -I have witnessed drug deals in the fenced-in play area. I've seen and smelled kids smoking marijuana there as well.

    -I've also seen the same activities occur behind the dugout of the baseball diamond.

    I believe that these persons are more of threat to children than small dogs.

    Oddly enough, it seems that these activities disburse when dogs and dog owners are nearby.

    I think the proper balance would be to add a gated-in area strictly for dogs to safely run off-leash. This way, people who are threatened by dogs would feel less threatened, and we would maintain the positive influence of dog owners in the area.

    Suggested City Infrastructure Improvement Project:

    Create Dog Run at Morrison Park


    The City may or may not have sufficient funding for infrastructure projects at this time to do the following work:

    1) Break up & remove the concrete in the tennis area

    2) Re-lay fence so dogs won't escape through gaps on current fence that has sharp rusty corners.

    3) Lay soft wood chips for the dogs to play on.

    4) Install better lighting in the fenced in area.


    It shouldn't cost more than $10,000 in labor and materials. If the City does not have the budget this FY to procure materials and pay labor costs, I'm sure (given the volume dog owners in the area) that funds could be raised.

    If the Mayors Officer and City of Public Works is interested, I am a certified Project Management Professional (PMP) and can provide a detailed Work Breakdown Structure, Cost Estimate, Schedule & Risk Assessment for further consideration. I am willing to assist the City of Medford in managing this effort on a volunteer/pro-bono basis

  • Main St & Route 16 Intersection Medford, MA - Medford

    Trying to come off South St or Route 16 onto Main St is like trying to perform a suicide mission each time! You have to peel out and burn rubber at full speed then slam on your brakes in the center like a sitting duck and then peel out again to get across the other half of street all while oncoming traffic is speeding towards you and purposely go faster if they see you even attempting to get across the street!! Try doing this while driving over all the potholes and getting stuck and ricocheted like a pinball all over the place. I'm SHOCKED this intersection has not been improved!!

  • A short but critical road to getting into and out of the neighborhood behind Tufts field. The whole street is filled with huge, deep potholes. They patch it periodically but the Town needs to pave the whole road!

  • 1 Chipman St Medford, MA 02155 - Medford

    Please enforce the "no dogs allowed, $50 fine" rules on Morrison park. It is not safe for small children. Unleashed dogs have the whole park to themselves.

  • Main St Medford, MA - Medford

    while the "other side" of the underpass was repaved, going under I-93 towards Medford Square is a virtual "suspension testing ground" and severely BEATS vehicles, multiple pavement issues here. Please fix soon.

  • 70 College Ave Medford, MA 02155 - Medford

    This patch, along College Ave, right before the George St. intersection is the worst. It's riddled with at least a dozen little potholes. It's just unavoidable.

  • Harvard Street Medford, MA - Medford

    This street has been cut up so many times that it unwalkable, unbikeable, and almost undriveable. Last year they came by with a truck, two shovels, and a bunch of asphault to fill in some problems. Only to have it all swept away by the snowplows a month later. This has got to be the worst block in all of Massachusetts! The condo guys had the sense to repave in front of their complex- finish what they started! What a total disgrace!
