Route 10 in New Haven

Notified About

  • Chapel Street And Ella Grasso Boulevard New Haven, CT - Edgewood

    This intersection has significant pedestrian traffic, especially children entering the park, in warmer weather months. It currently has no pedestrian crossing signal, and is a hazardous space for people to cross, given the high volume of traffic, and narrowing of the road into one lane just prior to the intersection (coming north on the Boulevard). Now is the time to address this, before kids start taking the risk to cross to and from the park this spring and summer.

  • Ella T Grasso Blvd & Edgewood Ave New Haven, Connecticut - Edgewood

    This afternoon, a team of dirtbikes and quads were going down Edgewood Ave through the red lights, and on the wrong side of the road towards traffic.

  • 1427 Ella Grasso Boulevard New Haven, CT - Edgewood

    There are loud, unlicensed, not street-legal dirt bikes going up and down Boulevard doing wheelies. This happens all the time!!! It is dangerous and loud and I wish something could be done about it!!!

  • 665 Whalley Ave New Haven, CT 06511 - Edgewood

    Tried crossing Whalley Ave. on marked crosswalk (stood in crosswalk, kept slowly inching my way into the road) at West Park Ave. and was passed by a horde of motorists. No one even thought about stopping. Also got trapped in the middle of the road when cars did not stop on the westbound side. I think a new traffic light is warranted here with a countdown-style walk light for the crosswalk. This would help slow traffic on this dangerous stretch of Whalley and allow people to cross safely. Also recommended is a bicycle-actuated signal, so cyclists can turn on to Whalley safely.

  • 1123 Ella T Grasso Boulevard New Haven, Connecticut - West River

    The pedestrian signal to cross 6-lane Ella Grasso Boulevard at this location is 20 seconds, which is more than 4 feet of crossing distance per second. The standard for areas in which children and seniors are present is 3 or maximum 3.5 feet per second of crossing time. This intersection is directly adjacent to Barnard School and is an important access point for West River Memorial Park. The ped signal should be timed to at least 25-30 seconds.

  • 476-504 Edgewood Avenue New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Edgewood

    Because there are 4 lanes on this highway (2 in each direction) where probably no more than 1 is needed, traffic goes at 55 miles per hour here. A buffered bike lane would easily fit.

  • 782-792 Whalley Ave New Haven, CT - New Haven

    About half a dozen teens on ATVs and dirt bikes tearing through Edgewood Park (where Farmers Market happens) and then blowing through red light at Fitch and Whalley, wheeleying up Whalley in wrong lane of travel

  • 194-274 Fitch St New Haven, CT - Southern CT State University

    Would love to see bike lanes or at least sharrows on both sides of Fitch Street between Whalley and Crescent. The street is wide enough to accommodate this request. Would be better if it extended up to Arch Street

  • 22-32 Blake Street New Haven, CT - Beaver Hills

    Pedestrians crossing Blake Street on Whalley Avenue are taking their lives into their hands. Because of the angle Blake takes from Whalley the walking distance is great and cars traveling northwest on Whalley turn into Blake at high speed. Drivers rarely cede right of way to pedestrians. People I know won't cross Blake there at all preferring to detour. This intersection is ripe for traffic calming.

  • Elm Street And Ella Grasso Boulevard New Haven, CT - Edgewood

    Ella Grasso Boulevard and Elm St - This is one of the worst intersections in all of New Haven for pedestrians. There is no safe time to cross the street, in any direction. Drivers always ignore the crosswalk, and pedestrians standing in the crosswalk, as if we do not even exist. Once the light is red on EGB, the light is immediately green on Elm, with cars turning both ways onto EGB. I think a 10 second crossing can be factored into traffic flow.

  • Pedestrian Signal Acknowledged
    Intersection Of Edgewood Avenu And Ella Grasso Blvd. New Haven, CT - Edgewood

    There is no pedestrian signal here to cross the Blvd. from Edgewood and it is a very busy road and intersection with people driving fast on it all the time. Edgewood Park is right there so a lot of children and adults with kids have to cross the road there to get to the park. Why are there crosswalk lights in parts of the city that are more well off than others? It drives me nuts and is a matter of time before someone gets hurt.

  • Fitch And Whalley New Haven, CT - Beaver Hills

    The entrance to Edgewood park at Whalley and Fitch has the worst potholes I have ever seen... I'm not even sure if they can be classified as potholes, because they are gigantic!
    This is at the entrance to the small parking area for the skate park and dog run.
    This is a major liability, with kids riding their bikes in and out all day, and cars attempting to maneuver through this and out into traffic.
