    All the paint marking the separation between bikes & cars on this street has been worn off by cars driving in the bike lane. Only the bike arrows are visible (barely).

    Rent a Center no longer even uses dumpsters. They are building a mountain of trash and using their dumpsters as a privacy wall.

  • 307-311 Colchester Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington

    I think "sharrows" would be a help on Colchester Ave from where the bike lane ends in front of the hospital all the way to the Winooski Bridge. A bike rider gets dumped into two lanes of traffic when the bike lane ends and needs to take the lane to keep going straight to Winooski. Once through the India House/East Ave intersection there are parked cars on the side (rider at risk of getting doored) and the street is very tight especially with all the bus traffic. A bike rider can easily maintain traffic speed on this busy road since it is downhill. If a rider leaves enough space to the car in front of them to be safe cars tend to "think" they are faster then a bike and accelerate up to 40, cross over the center line and then whip back in front of the biker and slam on their brakes even when a rider has taken the lane. There are "bikes may use full lane" signs along here but there is a lot of space between them and they tend to be ignored since they can be way off to the side behind parked cars. Getting some bike stencils every couple hundred feet down this section would help tremendously to give the driver visual cues that the bikers are allowed to be there since the sharrows will be directly in the drivers view. What can be done to make this happen? Seems like a quick, cheap and easy improvement for the time being. I have seen a huge increase in bike commuters on this section of road and also a huge increase of unsafe passes.

    The bike lane has faded or non existent lines on College St. Specifically between Willard and Williams. Also the curb has completely disintegrated along here making it dangerous for bikes. Please replace curb.

  • Pedestrian crossing Acknowledged
    1 Main Street Essex Junction, VT - Essex Junction

    The five corners lights need to be reprogramed to be pedestrian accommodating. Currently a pedestrian presses the crosswalk button and waits, like a vehicle, for the lights to make the cycle around the five corners then all five lights allow the walker to go but just long enough to get across one section. It seems to be a deterrent to walking downtown. I would think the lights could be reprogrammed to accommodate walkers and still allow steady traffic flow.

  • 660 North Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington

    There used to be a bike lane along this stretch of road, which has been worn away by vehicles who take the southbound right hand turn too tight. Signage has become overgrown as well. Please re-stripe this lane and trim trees around signage. The fact that the lane has been worn away points to the real need for a visual cue so that drivers give space on this blind turn!

  • 300 Staniford Rd Burlington, VT - Burlington

    The brush at this corner blocks the sight line of car drivers approaching the Island Line trail from Appletree Point. This would be a good time to clean it up. There is also a junky assortment of utility boxes and poles, and a fence that further blocks sightline. It is not safe, and it looks trashy. City please needs to set a good example!

    The building appears to be getting scraped and painted. There are paint chips and scrapings all over the ground. Lead safe practices do not appear to be being used. Children live in the adjacent buildings.

    In the yard on the north side, there is a vehicle and structure which previously did not exist. The sheltering plastic looked torn by wind.
