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

    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).

  • 156 North Winooski Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington

    This section of the bike lane is very dangerous because there is no icon indicating that it is a Bike Lane. Also the alignment shifts bikers far to the right which creates confusion among drivers and greatly increases the likelihood of a right hook collision in which bikers are hurt or killed. The sloppiness of the paint job indicates that even Public Works employees are confused by this poorly designed intersection. I suggest that the existing markings be removed and that a safe, properly aligned stripe be put in. It is also essential that one or more bike lane signs be included in the design. Otherwise this will continue to be a very dangerous corner.

    This sort of sloppy work should never be tolerated in a city that prioritizes safety. The bike lanes are currently unsafe because of faded striping and inadequate signage. Let's get it right this year or replace the folks who keep getting it wrong.

  • 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.

  • 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.
