  • (pothole) Archived
    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!

    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.

  • 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

    There is a small water line pothole with a missing cover. Someone at night running or walking may not see it and get injured.

  • 511-519 Huron Ave Cambridge, MA 02138, USA - West Cambridge

    At the intersection of Huron avenue and fresh pond parkway the light turns red for Watertown bound traffic on Huron avenue before turning red on the cambridge bound side thus making it very difficult and extremely dangerous for people turning left from Huron avenue onto fresh pond parkway. Typically one turns left as the light changes from yellow to red and as oncoming opposite traffic stops but as the light is turning one would expect it turns red for both directions... And thus expects the cars to stop. When is one supposed to know when to turn left in this light situation? I think having a left turn on arrow only would solve this and make the intersection much safer for everyone, alternatively simply make both directions turn red at the same time. Thank you.

  • 154 Gore Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - East Cambridge

    For the past few years, on even mildly rainy days, the crosswalk to cross 7th Street along Gore Street floods with several inches of water, as does the stretch of Gore Street between 6th and 7th Streets (on the south side of Gore Street). Can additional draining provisions be implemented here?

    The water fountain near the entrance to the park is out of order. The buttons, they do nothing!

  • Memorial Park East Boston Porter St Boston, Massachusetts - Riverside

    Hi, I was walking in the park and there is pole down in between the baseball field and the track, laying in the grass at the end of the field that is near the water spray park. I think there is a second pole in the grass but I haven't been able to walk around the track again to confirm its exact location. This cold be harmful if someone trips and falls. Thanks
