  • 7778-7792 Adelphi Rd College Park, MD 20740, USA - College Park

    Turning onto University Blvd from Adelphi road is confusing, as no turns are allowed at the intersection itself. However, the signs at this intersection showing drivers where to turn are completely inadequate.

    Two of the signs indicating the turn onto 193 are tiny and poorly placed -- nobody looking for the turn would see them until it's too late to change lanes. The other signs indicating the turn are missing altogether (look at the bent signposts with no signs attached.)

  • 9348 Cherry Hill Road College Park, MD - College Park

    Worst intersection design I have ever seen, at the intersection of Route 1 and Cherry Hill Road, which is asking for accidents to happen here. Despite having two left turn lanes, the green lights do not give freedom to make a left hand turn safely from oncoming traffic coming from the small gas station. At worst, the light turning cycle should be improved such that the left lanes have green left turn signals and there should be a separate light at the gas station to allow for safe passage through the intersection. At best, the whole intersection needs to be redesigned.

  • 47th Ave College Park, MD - College Park

    The traffic light at Cherry Hill and 47th Ave in College park is good during the day, but keeping the same timing for late at night is ridiculous! Late in the evening, you can get through the first two lights on Cherry hill ok, only to be stopped at this one as the lights for 47th and Home Depot are green and no one is coming at all! The only cars there are the suckers waiting at the red on Cherry Hill while the green lights run for the non-existant drivers leaving 47th or the Home Depot parking lot. I would suggest that after 10 pm the light on Cherry Hill/47th Ave blink yellow and the lights for 47th and Home Depot blink red so everyone can just get going! It's pretty lame to sit and wait for green lights no one is using.

  • College Park Metro College Park, MD - College Park

    The Greenbelt metro has a very large, red sign at the entrance that says 'A smarttrip card is required to pay parking fees...' (image attached). Please put one at the entrance to the College Park metro. The parking garage exit is often stopped by confused tourists. It is annoying for commuters and embarrassing that we treat visitors so poorly.

  • Anacostia Tributary Trail System College Park, Maryland - College Park

    Multiple Street lights are out all along the trolley trail.

    There are multiple street lights out on the trolley trail bike path between Greenbelt Rd and Paint Branch Parkway. Several other lights seem to be intermittent too.

  • 4500 Paint Branch Parkway College Park, Maryland - College Park

    The button on the south side of Paint Branch Parkway that controls the pedestrian HAWK signal is once again not functional.

    This is the 3rd time the button has broken in very recent history.

    This creates a very dangerous situation, as traffic never stops at this cross walk because the light is always green.

    The crew that "fixed" the signal last time managed to do lots of damage to the grassy area near the intersection too.

    Hopefully they will be be back to fix the signal again, and maybe re-sod this area too.

  • Regents Drive & U.S. 1 Baltimore Ave College Park, Maryland - College Park

    Pedestrians attempting to cross US 1 Baltimore Ave. at Regents Dr./College Ave have to wait an extremely long time for a walk signal. Because of this pedestrians often resort to crossing against the light and taking shelter part way across the road as traffic rushes past at high speed. During the day, this light cycle should be changed to allow pedestrians to cross more often. There is a crossing button but it's unclear if it's hooked up/functional.
