Sidewalk & Curb Complaints

1107 N Indiana AVE

Case Date:
2/18/2017

Good afternoon, I am writing to report an issue with water drainage coming from the roofs of houses and dumping on to the sidewalk. Along N. Indiana Ave, many houses/apartments (owned by Elkins Apartments) have drainage downspouts that empty directly on to the sidewalk. This creates a hazard with constant freeze and thew during the winter months. I have personally felt unsafe walking down a sloped sidewalk, on what is pure ice during periods this winter. Indiana Ave. is a very high foot traffic area during winter months as fans walk to and from basketball games. From witnessing several people slip and fall on the ice, I feel like it is my duty as a citizen to report this issue to the city. Though we have been blessed this season with relatively mild temperatures, this does not overshadow the safety hazard created from the downspouts off many of these houses. This problem would ideally need to be handled quickly before the next cold spell of weather. Thank you. Best regards

1150 W Acuff Rd, Bloomington, Indiana, 47404

Case Date:

Our residence is 1002 W. Acuff Road. We're the only house on that road, but we have NO curbs!! Rain and water has cut a trench along the road which makes it difficult to mow our grass. All the rain and water washes dirt from the farm field behind our house through the trench and all the debris completely covers our storm drain on the corner (near the pole in the picture), and the water washes all across Kinser Pike rather than going in the drain. People are constantly driving through our yard and cutting the corner where the storm drain is. We are CONSTANTLY cleaning out the drain ourselves. We REALLY NEED curbs on Acuff Road. Please help!!!!!

I have called several times over the last 3 years to report a dangerous curb on our street corner. Last summer a young child was injured when they hit the broken curb and fell. Please take care of this soon. The standing water each winter makes it more and more of a hazard as the cement freezes and thaws constantly there. Perhaps you could eliminate the standing water and prevent another deteriorated curb situation in the future. Your quick response would very much be appreciated. Thank you.

In front of our home at 1314 S Grant there is a dip in the road that holds water for days and sometimes weeks after a rain. Last summer it served as enough standing water to be a bad mosquito breeding ground... would love for it to be patched such that it doesn't breed them again this year.

1800-1898 E Winslow Rd, Bloomington, Indiana, 47401

Case Date:

The sidewalk at the north edge of the Goat Farm is covered with mud and water. I reported this on 3/30, #172124, and it was cleaned up. The problem appears to be a lack of drainage causing the standing water and residual mud.

Sidewalk & Curb Complaints

I've reported this area twice, #172124 and #172370, but today it's impassable again due to standing water. I appreciate the work you've done to clean it up. I use this sidewalk frequently and I would like to know what permanent solution will be installed to stop this problem from recurring. It seems like the ground on the downhill side needs to be lowered next to the sidewalk to allow the water to run off.

Sidewalk & Curb Complaints

2105 E Arden DR

Case Date:

While constructing the Bike Path on the portion of E. Arden Drive to SE Park, crews did not remove the heavy mats blocking storm drains at the corners of S. Williams, Greenfield & Sycamore Courts. When heavy rains appear, water flows into E. Arden Drive, oftentimes ponding in low lying areas. People often drive too fast on that street, causing hazardous driving conditions should they loose control of their car.

This is the second time I have reported this issue. In the fall there was a water main break on our street and the water company did not properly repair the dig site. We now have a mud pit/hole at the site of the repair and we recently had a visitor trip and almost fall at the site. I would appreciate this being fixed right away. Thank you, John Tweedie
