  • 52-58 Prospect Street Quincy, Massachusetts - Quincy

    Is it normal in Quincy for hilly residential streets to be plowed with several inches of snow left on the ground?

    The attached photo looks downhill on a two-way street. The tread mark on the left side shows a rear-wheel-drive taxi failed to go uphill after moving aside to let an oncoming car pass. The taxi had to roll back downhill at the end.

    I called DPW but the man who answered the phone wasn't convinced that there was any problem with the plowing. He insisted that someone must have shoveled snow into the road. To me, it looked like the plow wasn't lowered enough when the plow truck came.

    Is this level of "plowedness" normal?

  • Beale Street At Greenwood Ave. - Quincy

    Watch area for Quincy, Mass.
    This is a busy intersection for walkers going to/from the Wollaston T and seniors who live in the senior housing in the neighborhood. Drivers constantly go through the red light to take a right on red and even left on red when the walk signal is chirping. It is very dangerous for walkers.

  • Washington St Quincy, MA - Quincy

    There is always a lot of garbage on the ground here, from the corner of Washington St and McGrath Hwy, going Eastbound, and around the corner to Bigelow St. Maybe it would help to have a garbage can on the corner, where the bus stop is, since people are always standing around. (It seems like there is way less litter at the Foster St stop up the hill, which has a garbage can and much more activity/people waiting for the bus.)
    The area on Bigelow St between the corner and past the High Grade Skate Shop is rife with litter and garbage, including household trash and cigarette butts. Does the City ever send workers to clean things like this up? It is absolutely disgusting.
    Also, this area on the corner of Washington/Bigelow always has shopping carts. The number of carts has increased in recent months, and the carts are not always the same (different stores, etc.), so it is an ongoing issue.

  • Newport Ave And Beale St Quincy, MA - Quincy

    The pedestrian "walk signal" at Newport Ave and Beale St is not working properly. When you press the walk signal the visual walk sign does not work in all directions, the audible beep does work. with the visual sign not working it is confusing to both pedestrians crossing the street and vehicles taking a legal right on red onto Beale St heading to Wollaston and the vehicles taking an illegal right on red in the other directions.

  • 21 Weston Ave Quincy, MA - Quincy

    to those of us who want to walk down Weston Ave safely using the sidewalks that border their property. The lack of snow removal forces us to walk in the street which is not safe in the evening. Also they need to remember to clear the sidewalk adjoining both their property and the entrance to Wollaston Child Care. No one can safely walk on that section of sidewalk in its current state of solid ice. Thank you!!

  • 17 Elm St Quincy, MA - Quincy

    This intersection was recently redone, I'm guessing to make it clear who has the right of way (stop sign coming from Elm St toward Hancock St.). However, people are even more confused coming from Mechanic St/Revere Rd because there is a line there but no stop sign, causing some people to stop and make others behind them slam on their brakes. This intersection also makes it incredibly difficult for cars stopped at the Elm St. stop sign to continue straight toward Hancock St. It's a poorly designed intersection with the light at the top of the hill at Hancock St/Quincy Ave and Elm St/School St.

  • 53 Woodbine St Quincy, MA - Quincy

    At the enterance of the Wollaston T station and the two other intersecting streets there needs to be a stop sign and cross walks. Folks are speeding through there and I have watched several folks almost get hit. Please do something to slow traffic! Put stop signs on all sides.

    There is a thick layer of ice and slush on Prospect Street. Multiple vehicles failed to drive up the hill and had to drive in reverse to get out. Please send plow and salt.

  • 54-64 Beale Street Quincy, Massachusetts - Quincy

    The traffic walk signal pole was knocked out of action a couple of weeks ago but we are still waiting for a replacement walk signal pole to be installed. There is no walk signal button on that side of the street -- the traffic pole located near Wollaston Wine & Spirits does not have a walk signal button because there is no crosswalk there. Beale Street is very busy with cars bombing down from Newport Ave. and drivers not paying attention to pedestrians.

    Wollaston T station outside stairs and parking lot are a mess. Huge puddles and then sheets of ice on sidewalks. Almost fell twice.
