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.

    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.

  • 763 Whalley Ave New Haven, CT 06515, USA - Beaver Hills
    The dirt bikes were out of control in the park for the last 1/2 hour. 5 calls to police 911 and 946 and no response for 1/2 hour. Multiple riders brought bikes in the skate park while toddlers and young children had to huddle under their parents. Thanks for nothing NHPD. As I type this they are back and you are absent.

  • 1017-1025 Ella T Grasso Boulevard New Haven Connecticut - West River

    The Boulevard is a major north-south thoroughfare within the city from I-95 to Whalley Avenue and beyond, but it is dangerous for all road users, including motorists, but especially cyclists and pedestrians due to high travel speeds and traffic volume. There is, however, ample room within the 48+ foot right-of-way to incorporate a two-way protected cycle track along the entire length of the Boulevard without significantly diminishing the car carrying capacity of the roadway. Doing so would calm traffic, vastly improve safety for all road users, and encourage alternative transportation options to driving for many commuters.

    Should funding become available for this type of infrastructure, the Boulevard would be a worthwhile candidate since it traverses four city neighborhoods, several schools, and is a major roadway in need of traffic calming.

    For more information on how a cycle track might work along the Boulevard, see below:

  • 1123 Ella T Grasso Boulevard New Haven, Connecticut - New Haven - Ward 03
    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.

    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
