Public Works Gives Egleston a Thorough Snow Clearing

Boston Public Works clears the intersection of School and Washington Streets Sunday morning, Feb. 1, 2015. Credit: Richard Heath. Sunday morning Boston Public Works contractors were out in full force clearing the business district and intersections at Egleston Square. Sadly, a few motorists had their cars towed but the area was well marked. In one remarkable act of generosity, a tow truck driver had a car on his hook near Millennium Restaurant and was turning out when he backed up and dropped the car after being notified the work had been completed in that stretch.

Boston Public Schools Are Closed Thursday

Mayor Marty Walsh announced Wednesday evening that Boston Public Schools will stay closed for the third day in a row. "I am confident that our roads are safe and drivable," Walsh said in a statement, "and that our schools will be clear by tomorrow morning. But, I have grave concerns about the status of our sidewalks and the well-being of students walking to and from their bus stops, or needing to stand in the street when they are waiting for the bus. Our crews will continue to remove snow from the streets and bus stops tonight and our top priority is working with residents and businesses to clear sidewalks to ensure that school will be open on Friday." Boston is digging out from a blizzard that dumped two feet of snow on the city.
