Stone St Hartford Ct - Behind The Rocks
Traveling from New Britain Ave to Flatbush Ave using Stone Street as a thru street. The dump trucks are loading at the quarry and using Stone Street as a thru street to the highway. They are also traveling from Flatbush to New Britain Ave intersection-crossing to Newington Rd. There are sign clearly posted, going both ways for NO THRU TRUCKS. These signs have been posted for 20+ years. The HPD Traffic division has not taken my calls seriously. These trucks with all of the noise from the brakes and heavy loads cause a quality of life issues for residents in this area.
1-39 Hawthorn Street Hartford, Connecticut - Asylum Hill
Several months ago I reported that dangerous storm grates were being installed as part of the road construction associated with Fastrak station. It appears that the same style of grates continues to be installed. The grates have long slots parallel to the direction of travel and could cause a catastrophic bicycle crash. This style of storm grate has been phased out for obvious safety and liability reasons.
Curious how the contractor has managed to not correct this issue, particularly with design standards and a previous SeeClickFix report. The CT Fastrak project is clearly intended to serve more than car drivers, and I would expect the road projects adjacent to the stations to have special attention paid to "Complete Streets" design tenets.

2-32 Morgan Street Hartford, Connecticut - Downtown
at this intersection of Morgan & Trumbull (heading west), there are four lanes of travel. midway down the block, there is a sign indicating that the leftmost lane is for turning left onto Trumbull (towards the Hilton), the left middle lane heads onto the I84 entrance ramp, the right middle lane goes onto Chapel St North, and the rightmost lane can either go onto Chapel St North or turn right onto Trumbull.
The PROBLEM is that 99% of the time the people in the leftmost lane do not turn left, but head straight onto the entrance ramp (it is directly across from this lane of travel), creating two lanes heading into the same one lane. I have almost died here numerous times. It is extremely dangerous to be in the CORRECT lane because you have to anticipate the car to your left is going to head straight even tho they should be turning.
The SOLUTION is to put another sign AT THE INTERSECTION informing the left-laners that they must turn left, or paint the directional arrows right onto the pavement so people know the left lane is turn only.
106-122 Wethersfield Avenue Hartford, Connecticut - Sheldon Charter Oak
Wethersfield Ave is currently under heavy construction for the storm drain and sewer separation. I've noticed that the striping of Wethersfield Ave further south did not update the lane arrangement to improve "Complete Streets" safety for cyclists and pedestrian road users.
Are bike lanes being considered for Wethersfield Ave? Can the travel lanes, parking lane, and turn lane be narrowed? Parking lanes can be be narrowed to 7 ft, and the travel lanes to 10 ft. The center turn lane could also be narrowed to 10 feet.
Simple changes to lane width would make a significant reduction in speeding, reduce crossing distance for pedestrians, and improve the neighborhood character of the street. If the lane width reduction were implemented there would be an opportunity to implement 3-4 foot wide bike lanes. Since the bike lanes are not a minimum of 5 ft wide, they would be unofficial marked buffer lanes beside the parking lane. Alternatively, Wethersfield Avenue could incorporate "sharrows" and "Share the Road signage.
It is a popular street for commuting bicyclists, and continuing Hartford's car centric road design patterns is dangerous and doesn't promote a sustainable city. Thanks for your attention to this important issue.

37 Alden Street Hartford, Connecticut - South Green
Someone left a car tire on the curb near 37 Alden Street. Does this get picked up with bulk pickup?
There are several more tires on the northbound side of Wethersfield Ave as you approach Wylls (Between Wylls and Stonington). They have been there for almost a month.
Thanks for your help! Not sure why jerks leave their waste on the curb without making arrangements for pickup.
If it wasn't a car tire, I'd simply grab them and throw into our condo dumpster. I don't think you can simply dispose of car tires with household waste though.
Farmington Ave Hartford, Connecticut - Asylum Hill
Starting from Prospect and Farmington Ave, all the way to Sigourney and Farmington Ave, the roads have been terrible. The whole street needs to be repaved. The streets feel like a wave, and creates damage to our vehicles. Not to mention that this creates more issues with traffic, since drivers attempt to avoid the potholes and raised structures. It has been an ongoing issue, and HAS NOT BEEN RESOLVED. We as residents have to pay high car property taxes, the least you can do is fix Farmington ave.
131-177 Pearl Street Hartford, CT 06103, USA - Downtown
This is more like a pot in a hole. Looks like the cover cracked & came off of some kind of pipe. About 1 ft in diameter (see shoe in photo for reference ) and 6 inches deep, full of water & debris. A pedestrian as well as vehicle hazard.
