  • 1197 Forest Rd New Haven, CT 06515 - Westville
    This is a dangerous intersection. An accident a few months ago resulted in a death. At least a four-way stop or light is needed.

  • Chapel Street And Ella Grasso Boulevard New Haven, CT - Edgewood
    This intersection has significant pedestrian traffic, especially children entering the park, in warmer weather months. It currently has no pedestrian crossing signal, and is a hazardous space for people to cross, given the high volume of traffic, and narrowing of the road into one lane just prior to the intersection (coming north on the Boulevard). Now is the time to address this, before kids start taking the risk to cross to and from the park this spring and summer.

  • 201 Derby Avenue West Haven, Connecticut - Westville
    There is supposed to be PUBLIC ACCESS along the West River between Derby Avenue and Chapel Street. Yale and/or the CT Tennis Foundation has locked the gates on Chapel Street and Derby Avenue and illegally restricted access.

  • 1246 Forest Road New Haven, Connecticut - Westville

    There is a 10 ft tall, 40 foot long hedge infested with poison ivy, here. The hedge is not kept trimmed, so at this point is is making the sidewalk impassible and is a serious health and safety issue. This is a high traffic sidewalk for the local Jewish Community, who walk to temple.

    Trying to reopen this. The Poison Ivy is worse than ever. The property owner is unwilling to do anything.

  • Vista Terrace New Haven, CT - Westville
    The much needed speed bumps on the Vista Terrace cut-through were a welcome sight, but I didn't notice them at first. There are signs on the side of the road, but I think the speed bumps should be painted yellow to make them more visible. The bottom of my car is angry.

  • Chapel And Norton New Haven, CT - Edgewood
    I hope someone is investigating this blatant display of open drug dealing at this intersection. Traffic actually backs up on Friday Nights with so many "customers". I have had to drive home via a different route for fear of a deal gone bad and the ensuing violence. I know it takes time to build a case against these hoodlums, but this is out of control.

  • 89 99 Ellsworth Ave New Haven, CT - Edgewood
    Pike International bought the building at the northeast corner of Chapel Street and Ellsworth Avenue last year, and, while they put a lot of work into it, they really need to take one more step and redo this sidewalk. It's badly broken and a hazard to walk over. Pike's a big company, and it certainly can afford to repair about 100 ft of sidewalk for the safety of its tenants and other residents of the neighborhood.

  • Potholes Archived
    77 Knollwood Drive New Haven, CT - Westville
    on the street, near driveway apron, pothole is deteriorating daily. This is across from the Hopkins school driveway, so lots of traffic and they swerve to avoid it, so dangerous.

  • 1246-1284 Forest Rd New Haven, CT 06515, USA - Westville
    The new timing on the traffic light on Forest Road onto Fountain Street is too short, backing morning traffic up two blocks to West Elm. Something has definitely changed as this intersection, though busy, only recently began backing up this badly.

  • 1655 Chapel St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Edgewood
    I would love to see a dedicated lane for turning from northbound grasso blvd. left onto chapel. A line of cars get stuck behind the waiting turning car, while other cars speed by (way too quickly for a residential neighborhood), driving in the parking lane.

  • 1123 Ella T Grasso Boulevard New Haven, Connecticut - New Haven - Ward 03
    The pedestrian signal to cross 6-lane Ella Grasso Boulevard at this location is 20 seconds, which is more than 4 feet of crossing distance per second. The standard for areas in which children and seniors are present is 3 or maximum 3.5 feet per second of crossing time. This intersection is directly adjacent to Barnard School and is an important access point for West River Memorial Park. The ped signal should be timed to at least 25-30 seconds.

  • 480 Fountain Street New Haven Connecticut - Westville

    On April 3rd, the city sewer line was pressurized and flooded my basement and first floor bathroom. 100's of gallons of gray water and feces flooded out from my washing machine drain & bathroom drains. My sewer line was snaked and the problem originates at the manhole & city sewer line on the main street outside my house.

    Please clean this manhole and ensure there are no line blockages further down the sewer line. The city must take responsibility to ensure the city lines are free of blockages and will not fill and flood homes. I have taken action, at extreme expense, to install check valves in my lines to safeguard my house. Please take action to do due diligence and check sewer traps and lines to ensure there are no blockages. This will only occur again further up the street.

    Thank you.
