4-7 inches expected in Boston overnight
In a continuing five-year effort to improve safety and calm traffic along its 1.5 mile-long main campus straddling Commonwealth Avenue, Boston University today announced with the City of Boston a series of measures to further protect cyclists and pedestrians, encourage bike use, and promote awareness of cyclists and pedestrians among motor-vehicle drivers. They will include new signage, enhanced bike-lane markings, and highway reflectors in the pavement.
Mayor Thomas M. Menino and agencies around the City of Boston continue to monitor a potentially serious winter weather event. About 300 pieces of Public Works equipment will be deployed overnight to treat and clear city streets.
