  • 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.

    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

    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!

    The water fountain at Paine Park for running through is not working. Seems to be on one day and then off the next.

  • 65-77 Amory Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - Mid-Cambridge
    Hi there, ever since the city started construction at St. Mary and Amory, the water pressure in the neighborhood has decreased significantly. A neighbor had brought in a plumber who said that the debris from the construction has created major blockage. Is there any way to address this at the City level? Thank you for your consideration.

    Cars can't drive by without slashing water on pedestrians, and pedestrians can't stay far enough to avoid water splashes

    The water feature/spray park in the Gannett-Warren Pals Park has not been turned on. All of the other nearby parks have their water features on, we've noticed. Please turn this on for the neighborhood kids - without the water on, teens drink and people smoke weed on the benches out there, and drunk people sleep and urinate there during the day. Thank you!
