Boston crews have been working tirelessly to make all West Roxbury streets safe.
West Roxbury's Neighborhood Coordinator Chris Tracy sent Patch the attached pics and the following note: "(Monday) night I was out with crews on Centre and Spring streets to widen the business district as much as possible and keep removing the huge piles out there. This was part of the Mayor’s Snow Removal Strike Force Plan.:
Boston Mayor Thomas Menino announced on Tuesday the snow emergency parking ban was lifted at 6 p.m. on Tuesday. Snow removal is continuing throughout the nights and days.
City officials urged drivers to exercise caution and pay attention to “No Parking” signs in areas designated for snow removal, and expect delays as crews continue to remove snow.
Inspectional Services Department has issued 350 citations between midnight and 7 a.m. for snow-related violations on Monday night into Tuesday morning, according to a press release.
In total, from Monday night, crews removed 1,350 loads of snow from Boston's roadways. Boston is using several snow farms, including at Marine Industrial Park, Reservation Road in Hyde Park and Columbus Avenue, next to 1542 Columbus.
The Mayor’s 24-Hour Hotline continues to be fully staffed and has received more than 36,000 calls since the start of the storm. Residents with storm-related questions or concerns should call the Hotline at 617-635-4500. Residents can also request services and find snow information online at www.cityofboston.gov/snow.
