Mayor Martin J. Walsh joined Commissioner Michael Dennehy of the Department of Public Works (DPW) extending gratitude to DPW personnel, who took to the streets of Chinatown pre-and post- the 2014 Chinatown Main Street Festival. The crew consisted of six DPW personnel.
“We have grand celebrations in Boston, because we all know how to commemorate important events, holidays, and more,” said Mayor Walsh. “Even so, it’s important to act responsibly towards the environment and leave minimal impact in public, residential, environmentally sound areas.”
Two power washing trucks and one street sweeper began street cleaning on Saturday, June 14th from 5:00am to 3:30pm in the following locations:
- Beach Street, both sides, from Surface Road to Washington Street
- Harrison Avenue, both sides, from Essex Street to Kneeland Street
- Hudson Street, both sides, from Kneeland Street to Beach Street
- Oxford Street, both sides, from Beach Street to Essex Street
- Tyler Street, both sides, from Kneeland Street to Beach Street
In addition, approximately 60 light poles, bollards, and bike racks were painted, and three concrete sidewalks were repaired.
“Our crews are going above and beyond this year,” said Commissioner Dennehy. “I commend them on their hard work and look forward to the summer months ahead.”
