  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 1123 Ella T Grasso Boulevard New Haven, Connecticut - West River

    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.

  • 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.

  • Lakeview Ter And Fountain Street New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Amity

    Traveling southeast on Fountain Street there is a "no turn on red" sign in force. Yet Davis St. is a one-way street *in the other direction*. The sign should be removed, since -- unless a traffic engineer can elucidate -- there is no justification for it. (Perhaps Davis was once 2-way?). Regardless, it wastes time, forces idling, and frustrates drivers.
