    Three cars parked in bike lane. All have been ticketed, but have not moved in days (leaves & dirt have accumulated on windshields & tickets have faded). If not moved soon, these should be towed as they've clearly been in place longer than 48h.

    In front of the hostel. Missing seat, incredibly rusty chain. Has obviously been there a while.
  • 819 North Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric

    On the west side of North Ave, DPW & BED vehicles are currently parked in the street with the sidewalk blocked and excavated. There is no advance warning of a sidewalk closure and the crosswalk itself is blocked. For BHS students who were just released walking home northbound on the west side, they had no choice but to walk in the street around the section blocked by vehicles. If you're headed southbound in the bike lane, all the signage warning of the construction ahead is placed in the middle of the bike lane, instead of on the ample green space.

    Both BED & DPW should manage this situation better, as there is currently zero consideration given to the safety of anybody walking or biking this section. It was a total junk show shortly after BHS release. In addition, the sidewalk and bike lane on the east side of the avenue is also blocked by a private paving contractor, with no signage or advanced warning.

    DPW patched a number of potholes on both sides of North Ave yesterday with hot patch. With all the rain yesterday, any hot patch that was not well bonded was deposited into the bike lanes. Please sweep both sides, thank you!

    Pedestrian button on the west side of North Ave is stuck on.

    Multiple potholes & degraded asphalt on this block & the block between Oak & Manhattan.
  • 49–111 Pine St Burlington 05401, United States - Burlington Electric
    Construction vehicles blocking the sidewalk.
  • 517-605 North Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Due to all the potholes in the southbound lane between the 127 & the high school, combined with cars not following the actual radius of the turn, the bike lanes have completely worn away from car traffic over the winter. Please repaint ASAP, there is a lot of extra tourist bike traffic currently because of the detour, increasing the chances that somebody is going to get hurt.
  • 446-468 Manhattan Drive Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    People use the old dump as a de facto dog park, which seems fine as long as dogs are leashed while on the path to/from the dump proper. I've had frequent conflicts with dogs while riding a bike on the multi use path through this area, made especially challenging by how slow you're going (uphill) and how fast you're going (downhill). Off leash dogs are a hazard on the path and generally don't react well to people on bikes. Please add "dogs must be leashed" and "please pick up after your dogs" signage to the entry point at Manhattan. Something similar to the poop bag dispenser / signage at Ethan Allen Park would be useful.
  • 466-474 Riverside Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Several of the new signs directing drivers to watch for bike traffic on the multi use path on Riverside have been run over or bent. At least 2 of them are completely knocked over and laying on the ground. Location is approximate, if somebody is going out to make repairs they should check the other driveway conflict points along the North side of Riverside as there are issues with multiple signs.

    During clean sweep, for some reason the whole east side of North Ave does not appear to have been swept (Wednesday night). Last night the west side was swept and it is now in great shape. Please send the sweeper back out to do the east side. Photo is from further south but it is still bad all the way out to Ethan Allen Parkway.
  • 354 Manhattan Drive Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Street address is incorrect. Big pile of tires dumped at the bottom of the 127 bike path hill on the old dump property. Not sure how somebody would even get there since the gate at the top of the hill is locked & I think only City vehicles actually have access.

    Another bollard used to protect the bike lane here has been knocked loose. Currently laying next to the orange reflective barrel that has been placed to keep cars from driving through the bike lane.
  • 1-85 Ethan Allen Parkway Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Two bollards used to protect crosswalk have been broken off and are currently stacked in the green belt on the corner.

    Cap displaced / above grade. Directly in line with the hydrant on the west side of North Ave shortly after the 127 intersection
  • 607-709 North Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Both sides of North Ave are in need of a sweep, which will probably require multiple passes to get a whole winter worth of debris out of the street. Especially in sections where potholes have been repeatedly filled with cold patch, the blown out patches and sections that have been ground down have all deposited enough material in the bike lanes that they're washboarded like a dirt road.

    The signage at this intersection needs some updates so it is clear to drivers where they need to be, and what movements are legal. Often, drivers turning right will use the protected bike lane, which is dangerous & illegal... but if they're unfamiliar with the intersection the signage currently in place can be confusing. There should be a sign at the start of the PBL that clearly delineates which lane is for cars, and which lane is for bike. This intersection also needs a "right turns yield to bikes" sign, similar to the one already in place southbound near the high school.

    In addition, a number of bollards at the start of the PBL have been knocked down over the winter, making the opening appear wider than normal, which seems to encourage more drivers in the bike lane. There are also missing bollards at the end of the PBL, which allows for a higher speed right hand turn.

    On the other side of the intersection, there are two missing bollards that discouraged high speed right hand turns off the belt line onto North Ave.

    The sidewalk plow has been through this area twice today, but for some reason the South side of Archibald & the West side of Walnut have not been getting plowed at all this winter. Only the diagonal path through Dewey Park gets cleared. People waiting for the bus have nowhere to stand or load the bus.
