  • 29 Bow Street Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville

    I watched yet another cyclist get hit by a car at the Bow & Summer intersection. Fortunately he fell clear of the car's wheels, but it could have been very very bad. This intersection needs to be fixed ASAP, before someone gets seriously injured.

    The issue is this:
    Cars who are traveling northwest on Bow and taking the right fork onto Summer St do NOT realize that they are making a right turn, and need to yield to bike traffic "continuing" to the left on Bow.

    In the situation yesterday, the car half-passed the biker from behind, and then right-hooked him as the biker tried to continue in his lane to the left.

    The design of this intersection is so obviously terrible — please please fix it before someone ends up in the hospital...

  • Somerville Community Path Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville

    This section of the community path is flooded. It floods every time it rains, and has for years. To avoid the water you need to walk up on a steep slope with lots of roots. It's completely impassable for wheelchairs and strollers. In the winter it turns to a sheet of ice. It's a pretty serious hazard; I don't know why it's never been fixed.

  • 236 Somerville Ave Somerville, Massachusetts - Somerville

    South St by Twin City Plaza is a complete mess and has been this way for at least the last few years. Please repave.

  • Somerville Ave Somerville, MA - Somerville

    Somerville Ave. in Union Square, especially the right lane in the area of the Stone Ave. bus stop, is in terrible shape. Riding a bicycle over this tarmac is like skiing straight down a hill of moguls. Not fun. I hope this gets fixed before my teeth are rattled from their sockets one day.

    Kenney Park Somerville Ma - Somerville

    We could use a fence around the splash pad since it's right on two major roads.

  • Union Square Somerville, MA - Somerville

    Sidewalk cyclists are rampant in Union Square, in violation of the local ordinance prohibiting such activity, putting pedestrians (especially seniors and the disabled) at risk.

    Why aren't these violations of public safety addressed and enforced?

  • 54-56 Beacon Street Somerville, MA 02143, USA - Somerville

    I've reported this specific issue several times. 54 beacon never shovels. The sidewalk is very dangerous and makes walking difficult. Please do something about this! I've called the mayors office as well. The building is rented and the landlord is not taking care of the property as required. As a result pedestrians are in danger.

  • John'S Auto Sales 181 Somerville Ave., 02143 - Somerville

    Various vehicles making it difficult to walk on sidewalk, given how much of the sidewalk is being occupied by the cars. If people are required to cleared 42" of snow from sidewalks, shouldn't the standard sidewalk minimum width be 42" where possible?
