  • 194 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge, MA 02139, USA - Cambridgeport

    Ever since Mass Ave was repaved, there has been a perpetual puddle in the bike lane, where it angles over to the curb because Mass Ave south widens to two lanes. The slope of the pavement causes water to pool, and the puddle is bigger than the entire width of the bike lane.

    It lasts several days after it rains, long after the rest of the road is dry.

    Please re-grade this area or install a drain.

    6 Windsor St Cambridge, MA 02139 - The Port
    Huge pothole that has been there for a couple of years and it is just getting bigger. It fills with water and turns to ice in the winter. So dangerous when people are just turning onto that street!

  • 325-345 Binney St Cambridge, MA 02142, USA - East Cambridge

    This sidewalk is icy because the business owner neglected to equip its warehouse with proper gutters. Ironically their business is to sell industrial pipes! Please see by yourself the result of this negligence on the attached picture. In the winter the sidewalk is permanently icy. Any other season a huge puddle is created on the road leading pedestrians to be splashed by vehicles passing by. Pedestrian traffic on this sidewalk is significant with kids going to school, parents pushing strollers to the nearby daycare centers, and commuters walking to work. This is a fixable issue and I would urge the city of Cambridge to contact this business owner to remedy to this situation. Their might even be an article in the building code enforcing proper evacuation of rain/snow water as pouring it on the sidewalk is not good solution.
    Thank you for your consideration of this request and for making this city walkable and safe for pedestrians.
    Location of the issue: @ Binney St & Fulkerson on Binney street in front of "Metropolitan Pipe & Supply".

    Best regards,
    Arnaud Guidon

    Northeast corner of Oxford St @ Everett Street has bad drainage such that water backs up onto sidewalk/crosswalk. Water too dark/deep to tell if it was a clogged grate.

    Can the garbage removal and recycling people please be told to close the tops of the emptied garbage and recycling bins on rainy/snowy pick up days. Bins fill up with water and cause problems with disposal.
