Street Snow Removal

2713 E Rock Creek CT

Case Date:
1/22/2019

This is my second year reporting this issue. My family purchased this home on a cul-de-sac 4 years ago. Last year we removed our mailbox and installed a retaining wall because of already existing poor driaining issues in our area and the city keeps piling snow on top of our property and now the wall. I called Sunday evening and the woman I spoke with said, "cul-de-sacs" were tricky and the guys were out there long hours and were working in bad conditions while being exhausted. But she would be sure to give Joe my address and he would look into my complaints." I called Sunday because the had packed up a huge amount once again on our wall and blocked off half of my driveway. I was then told if we could get in and out of our driveway this should not be an issue or an emergency. Understandable but if the job was successfully completed then first time you would not have to come back. I woke up Monday not surprised to see even more snow had been packed up to our ever growing pile. So my issues are where is all this water going? There is no drainage in this area and all this snow will cause hazardous conditions with melting and freezing and having nowhere to go. Why are you bringing all of the snow into our cul-de-sac? Why are you continuously putting snow on a stone wall where someone could get injured after I have now reported it three times? There are a ton of kids in our neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods and kids like to jump in big piles of snow. I will not be held liable because the city of Bloomington will not listen to or work with its residents. Finally when you contact the city of Bloomington instead of working with you why do they always seem to retaliate against you and make the situation worse? This is what happened last year when the plow driver asked me how I suggested he plow with my "plow experience." I have many other picture but this shows the pile today and how large it is and how spread out the city left. If it snows anymore my neighbors might not be able to back out of their driveway. Is this acceptable??

Street Snow Removal

1216 E Skylark CT

Case Date:

Hi--we love the work the city road crews do to plow snow and sand for safe travel. We do have one request for our cul-de-sac, though (Skylark Court, east off of Highland Avenue). We'd appreciate it if the plow drivers could return and plow the large pile of snow covering the lone storm water drain off to the side, so as to uncover the drain. Also, in the future, can they please avoid piling snow that storm water drain. It is the drain for the entire cul-de-sac. In the photo, this location is shown approximately by the red arrow. When snow is piled over this drain, as snow melts from anywhere uphill, or if it rains, the snow pile caps off the drain and the bottom of the cul-de-sac floods. The storm water drain is at the bottom of the cul-de-sac, which is all one slope, so A LOT of water runs to that one drain. One concern we have with the flooding is that several utility hook-ups (electricity, telephone, and cable) are just a foot or two away from the drain. Things have been done this way for years, and we have always taken it upon ourselves to shovel the drain clear, but this year we realized it would be a great idea to ask if the plow drivers could do this instead. Thank you!

There are many potholes along Old State road 37 that need to be addressed before winter gets here. We really feel that the road should be paved. The road it horrible after you go past Dunn street. Also on N. Fish road there are several spots that need to be taken care of with fill from water build -up. As well as spot holes. Thank you in advance for your help. Have a great day.

Potholes, Other Street Repair

After all the utilities repair that's been going on in our neighborhood, our streets were completely ripped up. The city has since started patching the roads, but they've done a pretty slapdash job of it. The new paving is very uneven and there are gaps and places where it's easy to lose your footing. I've already tripped at least once in the last few days when I've been out walking my dog. I'm a young, able-bodied person so I'm sure you can see how it could pose a risk to the other residents in the neighborhood who might be older or less steady on their feet. I hope this patching effort is a temporary fix and not the final product, because that would be unacceptable. I would love to hear back about this issue and whether or not this is a temporary fix. I hope the roads in our neighborhood can be completely repaved when this water utilities project is fully completed.

Potholes, Other Street Repair

1422 E Elliston DR

Greetings, I spoke briefly with a street maintenance crew as they were working in front of my home - and thought I'd share the conversation here. Over the past few years, the gutter from in front of our home (1504 E Elliston) on down to Fenway Pl has deteriorated significantly to the point that our driveway & yard are sinking as well. I'm no longer able to get my cars out of my driveway without scraping the bottom. When we get major rainstorms, I've noticed that the water runs directly into the ground from the gaps in the gutters & road, which I'd imagine contributes to the gutters & road sinking. I appreciate that they were out there patching the holes, but the patching really is very temporary from my observation. I was wondering if the city would have any plans to shore up the foundation, perhaps rebuild the gutters in a way that my driveway/yard won't continue to sink. Your consideration would be greatly appreciated - thank you!

The Street Department has enough things to do but we would like to add something to their list. The pavement along the curb in front of our house is breaking up in good sized chunks. There are a several spots that have broken through to the dirt below. One hole is probably eight or nine inches deep and filled with muddy water. We live at 3111 East Tapps Turn. Our street is an extension west of Olcott Avenue in Hyde Park. Thanks for your help. Steve Ulrey
