Emergency Snow Removal Operations Continue Throughout Boston
Through the Weekend
(BOSTON - February 4, 2011) Residents are reminded to adhere to
Temporary Parking Restrictions and avoid parking in areas that could
impede traffic flow
Boston Public Works, Transportation and Police continue to conduct
Emergency Snow Removal activities throughout the city today and
through the weekend. The City has removed over 62,000 tons of snow
from city streets since last week.
"The Public Works crews have been working around the clock and doing
a great job of keeping our city open for business," Mayor Menino
said. "We understand their operations can cause inconvenience to
some residents but again ask for patience while our crews continue
Due to the large amounts of snow that are narrowing our main
thoroughfares and the number of cars that are parked in travel lanes
and the increase in commuter traffic into the city, the Boston
Public Works Department, the Boston Transportation Department and
Boston Police are coordinating snow removal on main arteries,
business districts and areas of public safety concern for the free
flow of traffic especially for first responder vehicles such as fire
trucks, police cars and ambulances. The Mayor’s Office of
Neighborhood Services as well as police have been dropping fliers
and using bullhorns to inform the public of temporary parking
* Many parking spots that would otherwise be legal parking areas may
not be acceptable parking spots now.
* Please be advised that if your car is parked in a manner that
impedes traffic your vehicle will be moved.
* Drivers are asked to be aware of emergency snow removal postings
and no stopping/parking postings throughout our city.
The public has been exceptionally patient during this extreme winter
weather and is asked to continue to give us their cooperation and
patience as the city continues its snow removal operations.
