Rt. 69 woodbridge CT, right after starbucks plaza heading towards Woodbridge - Woodbridge
A large curb/narrow road causes a HUGE bottleneck and traffic nightmare in Woodbridge/New Haven on Rt. 69 (Right by Starbucks Plaza). If the road was widened by at least 1 ft on the right (headed towards new haven) this would solve this ridiculous traffic problem.
2-10 Newton Rd Woodbridge, CT 06525, USA - Woodbridge
On Friday, October 29, 2010 at about 1:45PM, I was driving past the old Fire Department site at the intersection of Newton and Center Roads. I noticed two men were clearing leaves on the site using a high-powered push blower. I was then shocked to see that the men were blowing the leaves and other debris directly into the middle of Newton Road, and in fact directly onto my passing car.
As a town resident, I am appalled that a town property is being maintained in this fashion, with leaves being blown into or across the street. I further don’t appreciate my car being throttled with leaves, dirt, and other debris when driving into the town center to conduct my business. This practice should be changed.
New Haven, CT - Amity
CT15 - Enterance 59, Southbound
This needs to be a yield sign and maybe paint some arrows on the right lane on CT15 directing traffic over to the left to allow oncomers. It SHOULD NOT be a stop sign because of its location. This enterance makes it difficult to get on traffic with a hill just ahead - especially for 4cylinder cars (which I have). From a stop, its nearly impossible to get going fast enough to avoid a collision with oncoming traffic. Thus we have to make sure no one is coming for quite a distance, thus we sit there for a long period of time holding up traffic. This would be better suited as a merge and forcing more cars to pull into the left lane to allow more convienence for oncomers. Lets face it, leaving it up to the decision of the CT people is not a good idea. In general, CT drivers are selfish.
Wilbur Cross Pkwy & Litchfield Turnpike New Haven & Woodbridge - Amity
The area of Litfield Turnpike between the Exxon station and the Starbuck's in Woodbridge has no sidewalk. The area has plenty of pedestrian use as can be seen by the paths worn in the grass and dirt. This means one must walk without aid of a sidewalk and cross the exit and entrance ramps of Route 15. Please build a sidewalk!
Rt 63 Amity Road At Lucy Street Woodbridge, CT - Woodbridge
someone is going to die at this intersection, every day that passes I believe this more and more. I see 2-3 cars blow through the intersection well after the light has turned red. Yesterday an 18 wheeler didn't even slow down and blew through the light like it was blazing green. One would think the police from Woodbridge or state troopers since it is a state road would at least be visible once in awhile- I travel through the area 6-10 times per day and can't recall in the last 6 months ever seeing an officer.
1672-1692 Litchfield Turnpike Woodbridge, CT 06525, USA - Woodbridge
On Rt 69 south, between Lucy St and the entrance to Rt 15 south, the curb could be moved to create a lane for the cars that want to get on the parkway. This would facilitate traffic flow between the 3 lights.
The timing of the lights appears to have been improved but the traffic still backs up and few cars can advance through the green light. This suggestion would fix this problem.
Fountain St CT - Woodbridge
A big pile of trash -- insulation, lawn furniture, and all kinds of other junk -- a good truckload's worth -- was dumped on the westbound side of the road between the overpass and the Woodbridge sign -- it was done just in the past few days but I hope it doesn't sit there long, I go by there at least twice a day and it's grossing me out, I hate to think about what a non-local would think going by there and seeing that.
1659 Litchfield Turnpike New Haven, CT - Woodbridge
In 1972 the owner of this property decided to harm the town of Woodbridge by leaving cargo containers on a piece of land they said he could not develop. For 40 years the travelers of Litchfield Turnpike have had to see this mess. In the last two years the cargo containers [ across from Starbucks] have become even more blighted with graffiti.
One man's immaturity causing so much annoyance- hey idiot you win- we hope you get hemorrhoids.
839-843 Connecticut 243 Woodbridge, CT 06525, USA - Woodbridge
This is an awkward intersection, where Fountain Street (CT-243) meets Rimmon Rd. (CT-313). Park Lane is a small residential, dead-end road that is directly before the Rimmon Rd fork as you come up Fountain Street. It's a fairly sharp right turn, so you need to take the turn at a relatively slow speed.
Unfortunately, you are at great risk of being rear-ended when you do this, because most drivers assume your right turn signal means you're turning onto Rimmon Rd, which is a gentle fork without a stop sign or signal, so you can negotiate that turn basically at full speed. I can't tell you how many near accidents I've seen here.
I think the ideal solution is to build a rotary at this intersection, as it would not only solve this problem, it would improve turns between 243 and 313; another option is a dedicated turn lane on westbound 243 only for those cars turning onto Park Ln. At the very least, some signage warning of the sharp right turn onto Park Ln might help. In any case, the town and/or state should study the intersection and do something to help alleviate this terribly dangerous situation.
