submitted : 

The duties of the City Engineer include the designing and 
supermtending of the construction of new bridges, retaining- 
walls, city wharves, and such other public engineering works as 
the City Council may authorize ; the makmg of such surveys, 
plans, estimates, statements and descriptions, and taking 
such levels as the city government or any of its depart- 
ments or committees may require ; the custody of all 
surveys and plans relating to the laying-out, locating anew, 
altering, widening or discontinuing of streets ; and the new 
engineering construction for all departments of the city. 
He must be consulted on all work where the advice of a 
civil engineer would be of service. The office of the City 
Engmeer was established by ordinance on October 31, 1850, 
and by chapter 449 of the Acts of 1895. 

The Architectural Division of the Public Buildings De-

work of this division is that of a consulting or expert force. 
It may be called upon by any department for technical advice 
on matters relating to building, heating or ventilation. Plans 
or specifications for work to be done, in certain cases, by the 
Repair Division of the Public Buildings Dejjartment, are 
prepared by this division, which is also charged with a gen- 
eral supervision of the work done by the Repair Division of 
the Public Buildings Department.

Engineering Department. 9 

Boston & Albany Railroad. The portions of the floor beams 
which were not painted in 1896 are very rusty, and should 
be painted. The fence is also quite rusty. The sidewalk 
planking is worn very thin, and should be renewed this year. 

Allston Bridge (over the Boston ^ Albany B.R.^ Brighton'). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1892. The fences and the 
ironwork below the flooring should be cleaned and painted. 

Arhonvay Bridge (over Stony hrook^ in Parkway, near Forest 
Sills Station). 

This is a wooden bridge resting on abutments of vulcan- 
ized spruce piles. The stringers and under-planking are of 
vulcanized hard-pine. It was built in 1893, and is maintained 
by the Park Department. The sheathing on the portion of 
the brido-e not used for team travel should be renewed. 

Ashland-street Bridge (over Providence Division.^ New York., 
New Haven <|* Hartford Railroad, West Roxhury). 

The present structure is of iron, and was built in 1875. 
The ironwork is in good condition. The fence on the northerly 
side has been rebuilt, but that on the southerly side remains 
in a very poor condition, and should be repaired at once. 

Athens-street Bridge (over Neiv England R.R.). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1874. The bridge is in 
poor condition ; it should be stripped and painted, and the 
upper woodwork should be renewed. 

Audubon-road Bridge (over the Boston ^ Albany R.R.). 

This is a steel-plate girder bridge, built in 1893-94, and 
is now in good condition. It is maintained by the Park 
Department.

1887-88, and the central roadway further widened in 1890 



10 City Document No. 12. 

for the convenience and at the expense of the West End 
Street Railway Company. Tlie ironwork below the floor of 
the easterly and central roadways has been cleaned and 
painted, and new lower planking has been put in. The east- 
erly sidewalk has also been replanked, but the westerly side- 
walk and roadway remain in poor condition. 

Bellevue-street Bridge (over Muddy River ^ in the Parkway). 

This is a segmental masonry arch of 44 feet span and 15 
feet rise. It was built in 1893 by the Park Departments of 
Boston and Brookline, and is maintamed jointly by them.

This is an iron bridge, built in 1891, and is now in good 
condition. _ 

Berkeley-street Bridge (over Providence Division, New York, 

Neiv Haven ^ Hartford R.R.^. 

This bridge has been reported for a number of years to be 
in a poor condition, and only such repairs as seemed abso- 
lutely necessary have been made. By carefully watching, it 
is probable that this bridge can be made to do its work until 
the removal of the railroad tracks from this location will 
render a bridge unnecessary at this point. 

Bernier-street Foot-bridge (over Bridle Path in Riverway'). 

This is a semi-cii'cular masonry arch of 38 feet 4 inches 
span. It was built in 1893, and is maintained by the Park

were those built for Franklin street in 1883. It is n.;w in 
good condition. 



Enges^eering Departjment. 11 

Blakemore-street Bridge (^over Providence Division, New York,

This is a stone arch bridge, built in 1881. It is m good 
condition. 

Boylston-street Bridge (over Boston ^ Albany R.R.).

are now very rusty. The sidewalk planking is very thin and 
should be renewed. 

Bridle-path Bridge, in the Riverway (over Muddy River). 

This is a masonry bridge of three arches ; the central arch 
is elliptical in form, with a span of 30 feet and a rise of 9 
feet 6 inches ; the side arches are semi-circular, 15 feet in 
diameter. It was built in 1891 and is maintained by the 
Park Department. It is in good condition.

tric cars to use it, and the woodwork on the draw was re- 
newed in 1896. The down-stream draw-pier has been rebuilt 
for a length of 120 feet, and the up-stream fender-guard has 
been rebuilt, and other general repairs have been made on 
the bridge and on the di'aw-pier. The sidewalks and the 
lower planking on the main bridge and on the FouncUy-street 
span need repairs, and the draw foundation should be pointed. 
The piers and one fender-guard need renewal. The trusses 
erected in 1893 need adjusting. The draw and draw foun- 
dation are m good condition. 



12 City Document No. 12. 

Broadway Bridge (over Boston cj- Albany R.E.'). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1880-81. The recom- 
mendation made a year ago, that tlie ironwork below the

This is a wooden bridge, built in 1889. The sidewalk and 
bulkheads need repairing, and the fences should be painted. 

Cambridge-street Bridge (from Brighton to Cambridge'). 

This is a wooden pile bridge, with a wooden leaf draw. 
The city maintains the part within its limits. It was rebuilt 
in 1884; the draw was rebuilt in 1891. The draw pier is 
too short to accommodate the larger class of vessels that the 
widening of the draw-way allows to pass tlu'ough the bridge. 
A new boat, a buoy, and a better house should be provided 
at this bridge ; the fender-guard, pier, water-way and stone 
abutment and chains on the draw need repairmg. The deck 
of the bridge is old and needs renewmg. 

Canal or Craigie's Bridge. 

This is a wooden pile bridge, with a wooden turntable 
draw. The city pays one-half the cost of maintenance. The 
bridge was originally built m 1808, was rebuilt m 1852, and 
again rebuilt and widened in 1874. The bridge is m the 
care of a commission, consisting of one commissioner from 
Boston and one from Cambridge. The up-stream sidewalk 
on the Cambridge side of the draw has been rebuilt, and the 
bulkhead in front of the draw-tender's house has been 



Engineering Departjient. 13 

repaired ; the other sidewalks, sidewalk bulkheads and fenc- 
ing are poor and need rebuilding in part ; additional stringers 
are needed near the draw, and some pile work is needed at 
the Cambridge end, and some of the spurshores need refitting ; 
the roadway should be repaved ; the draw and draw-pier are 
old and need extensive repairs. 

Castle-Island Foot-bridge (^from Marine Park to Castle 
Island^. 

This is a temporary foot-bridge, built in 1892, and is main- 
tained by the Park Department. It connects the jNIarine park 
with Castle Island, and is furnished with a draw, so that if 
desired by the United States authorities, the island can be 
cut off from the shore. The draw should be adjusted, and 
minor repairs are needed on the flooring ; otherwise the bridge 
is in good condition. 

Central-avenue Bridge (over Neponset Hiver, Dorchester 
Loiver Mills'). 

This is an iron bridge, and was built in 1876. The city 
maintains the part within its limits. A new sidewalk has 
been built on the down-stream side. The woodwork of this

dation is repeated, that the bridge be stripped and j)ainted, 
the woodwork renewed, and the abutment pointed. 

Charles-river Bridge (from Boston to Charlestowri). 

This is a wooden pile bridge, with an iron draw. The 
present bridge was built in 1854-55 ; the draw was built in 
1870. The streel>car rails have been removed from the 
bridge, and the roadway paving has been patched, and other 
general work has been done. The fence and sidewalk bulk- 
head at the Boston end of the bridge need repairing; one 
bent of piles need additional caps, and the abandoned tele- 
phone poles should be removed ; otherwise the mam bridge is 
in fair condition ; the piers and the fender-guard are in very 
poor condition. 

Charlesgate Bridge (in Back Bay Fens^ over Boston ^ Albany 

B.R.). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1881-82, and is maintained

the bridge is too narrow, and the fences need paintmg; 
otherwise the bridge is in good condition. 

Chelsea Bridge^ North (over North Chaimel^ Mystic River'). 

The city maintains the part within its limits. The original 
structure was bmlt in 1802-3. The piles under the main 
bridge were driven in 1880. The upper part of the bridge, 
the draw and draw foundation were built in 1895. The

grade, and the draw was raised in 1895. The waterway has 
been repaired, the house has been painted, and other minor 
work done. The iron fence near the house needs painting, 
and the fender-guards are in poor condition ; otherwise, the

Columbus-avenue Bridge (^over Boston ^ Albany i2._B.). 

Tills Is an Iron bridge, built In 1876-77. The Ironwork 
below the floor is very rusty and the under planking should 
be renewed. Inasmuch as this bridge must be rebuilt 
when the tracks from the Providence Division of the New 
York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad are extended to the 
South Union Station, It Is not advisable to do any work other 
than Is necessary to keep the bridge In safe condition for 
travel. 

Commercial Point or Tenean Bridge (^Dorchester'). 

This is a wooden pile bridge, with a wooden leaf draw. 
The present bridge was built in 1875. This bridge is in 
poor condition ; the draw should be rebuilt and most of the 
woodwork above the piles should be renewed. 

Commonwealth-avenue Bridge (in Back Bay Fens). 

This is an iron bridge. It was built in 1881-82, and is in 
good condition. 

Congress-street Bridge (over Fort Point Channel). 

This is a wooden pile bridge, with an iron turn-table draw 
on a stone foundation, and was built in 1874-75. A part of 
the deck of the bridge and the sidewalks have been rebuilt. 
The remaining sidewalks and parts of the flooring of the 
bridge are in very poor condition and need immediate repairs. 
The draw should be raised in order to relieve the excessive 
wear on the wheels and tracks ; the paving should be re- 
paired and the top of pier should be rebuilt. The bridge 
will soon be widened 20 feet at the Boston end, and filled 
solid as far as the harbor line ; as soon as Summer-street 
bridge is built this bridge should be rebuilt ; in the mean- 
time it should be watched very carefully. 

Cornwall-street Bridge (over Stony brook^ West Boxbury). 

This is a small wooden bridge, built in 1892. It is in 
good condition. 

Cottage Farm Bridge (over Boston ^ Albany B.R.^ Brighton). 

The present bridge was built in 1895-96. The sidewalk 
on the northerly side, and the railings for the girders on the 
street lines, have not as yet been built. It is desirable that 



16 City Document No. 12. 

this work should be done witlioiit further delay, and the 
entire bridge put in a finished condition. 

With the exception of the plate girders on the outside lines 
of the bridge, and some special construction under the side- 
walks, the superstructures is composed of 20-inch steel beams 
filled between with brick arches and Portland cement con- 
crete, on which is a wearing su^ice of Sicilian rock asphalt. 
The lower flanges of the beams are covered with sheet lead 
to protect them from rust and the corrosion due to gases in 
smoke from locomotives. 

Cottage-street Foot-bridge (over Flats, Fast Boston). 

This is a wooden pile bridge, built in 1889, for foot travel 
only. Some of the piles are commencing to decay. The 
cross-bracing is poor, and should be renewed where necessary 
before winter. The floormg and the fences at the ends of 
the bridge need repairing ; otherwise, the bridge is in fair 
condition. 

Dartmouth-street Bridge (over Boston ^ Albany R.R. and 
Providence Division, New York, New Haven ^ Hartford 
R.R.). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1878-79. The ironwork 
of this bridge needs to be thoroughly cleaned and painted, 
but as extensive alterations must be made in this structure 
when the railroad tracks are rearranged on account of the 
abandonmg of the Park Square Station, this work can be 
well postponed until that time. 

Dorchester-street Bridge (over Old Colony Division, New 
York, New Haven and Hartford R.R). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1869. It is principally 
maintained by the railroad company, and was repaired and 
put in fan' condition in 1893. 

Dover-street Bridge (over Fort Point Channel). 

This was originally a wooden pile bridge, built in 1805, 
rebuilt in 1858-59, and again in 1876. In 1893-94, upon 
the abolition of the grade crossing of the Old Colony Rail- 
road, the present iron structure resting on masonry piers was 
built. The bridge is m good condition. Portions of the 
foundation of the old draw on the Boston side present a very 
unsightly appearance and should be removed. The top of 
the do^^^l-steam pier needs renewal.

The city maintains the part within its limits. This is a 
wooden pile bridge, with a wooden leaf draw, and was origi- 
nally built in 1850 ; the draw was rebuilt in 1891. The 
woodwork above the piles was renewed in 189G, and this 
part of the bridge is in good condition. During the past 
year an extension has been made to the draw-tender's house, 
and other small repairs have been made. The planking along 
the waterway and on the top of the pier should be repaired. 

Everett- street Bridge (over Boston ^ Albany B.R., Brighton'). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1891, by the Boston & 
Albany Railroad. It is in good condition, and needs only 
minor repairs to some of the woodwork. It should be painted 
during the present year. 

Federal-street Bridge (over Fort Point Channel). 

This is a wooden pile bridge, with a double retractile iron 
draw, and was rebuilt in 1891-92. The sidewalks need re- 
planking and the bridge needs painting ; the waterwa3's also 
need slight repairs ; othermse, the bridge is in good condition.

This bridge was built in 1891-92. It is in good condition. 

Ferdinand-street Bridge (over Boston ^ Albany R.R.). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1892. The lower planking 
is poor, and the ironwork below the floor should be cleaned 
and painted. But as this is another bridge which must be 
changed to accommodate the new arrangement of the railroad 
tracks, all work may be omitted until the changes are made. 

Forest Hills Entrance Bridge (in Franklin Park). 

This bridge was built in 1894-95. It is maintained by 
the Park Department, and is in good condition. 



18 City Docibient No. 12. 

Gold-street Bridge (over Neiv England li.R.'). 

This bridge was built in 1895, replacing a foot-bridge 
which was built in 1890. The bridge is not open to travel 
as the ramps have not yet been built ; the fence is already 
daubed and cut, and the bridge is dirty and should be cleaned. 
The outside girders should be painted ; the walls need a little 
pointing. 

Grranite Bridge (from Dorchester to Miltori). 

This is a wooden pile bridge, with a wooden leaf draw. 
The city mamtains the part within its limits. The bridge 
was originally built in 1837. The sidewalk and the up-river

fence on the draw should be painted, and the flap-hiuge should 
be relocated. 



Harvard Bridge (^from Boston to Cambridge'). 

This is an iron bridge with an iron turn-table draw, and 
was built in 1887-91. The bridge is in the care of two 
Commissioners, one appointed from Boston and one from 
Cambridge, and the expense of maintenance is borne equally 
by each city. The roadway has been sheathed during the 
year, and the fences and facias painted. 

Harvard-street Bridge (over Neiv England R.R., Dorchester). 

This bridge heretofore has been supported by the New 
England railroad; it was a narrow bridge without sidewalks. 
Durmg the past year the city has built a sidewalk on tlie out- 
of-town side, of wliich it will have the care, the old part of 
the bridge still being maintained by the railroad. It is in 
fair condition. 

Huntington-avenue Bridge (over Boston ^ Albany R.R.). 

This is an iron bridge. It was built in 1872, and in 
1876-77 the abutments were rebuilt, and the bridge widened 
by the addition of two new girders. In 1896, inconsequence 
of changes in the grade of the avenue, the floor was entirely re- 
built, and the ironwork thoroughly cleaned and painted. Two 
new plate girders were put in under the westerly sidewalk 
for supporting a 42-inch water-main, and the old girder on the 
centre line of that sidewalk was moved to the easterly side- 
walk. The bridge is now in good condition.

fences on the main bridge have been painted one coat, and 
minor repairs have been made. The outer girders of the 
draw, some of the ironwork beneath the draw and the houses 
should be painted this year. The waterway needs repairing, 
and one ladder should be rebuilt. The down-stream half of 
the draw is kept closed, and will need resheathing before 
being opened to travel. Otherwise, the bridge is in good 
condition. 

Leverett-pond Footrhridge (in Leverett Park'). 

This is a segmental masonry arch of 24 feet span and 5

old iron bridge and is in a dangerous condition, and it should 
be replaced by a stone bridge. 

Meridian-street Bridge (from East Boston to Chelsea). 

This is a wooden pile bridge, with a wooden turn-table 
draw on a pile foundation. The original structure was built 
in 1858. It was rebuilt soon afterwards, and was widened 
and rebuilt m 1884, excepting the draw, which was built in 
1875-76. The chords of the draw were rebuilt in 1896. 
The waterways have been repaired and other minor work 
done. The draw and its bearings need adjustment, and the 
stringers on the main bridge, near the draw, need strength- 
enmg. The bridge is in fair condition. 

Milton Bridge (from Dorchester to Milton). 

The city maintains the part within its limits. The origi- 
nal structure is very old. It was widened in 1871-72. The 
older part of this bridge was built of stone, and the widen- 
ing is an iron structure on stone columns. The outside 
girder and the fences need painting, the sidewalk plank 
needs renewal, the up-stream sidewalk needs additional string- 
ers, and additional scuppers are needed.

Mt. Washington-avenue Bridge (over Fort Point Channel). 

This is a wooden pile bridge, with an iron draw. It was 
built in 1854, and rebuilt in 1870-71 ; this bridge is in poor 
condition. It has the only draw of importance in the city 
that is moved by hand power ; the draw-pier is in poor con- 
dition and is so low that it is covered with water at every 
high course of tides. A new fender-guard has been built on 
the up-stream side of the South Boston end of the bridge. 
The sidewalks, roadway pavement, sidewalk and roadway 
floorings on the draw and the fender-guards are in poor con- 
dition and need early attention, and the water-ways are out of 
repair. This bridge should be rebuilt. 

Nejjonset Bridge (from Dorchester to Quincg). 

The city maintains the part within its limits. The origi- 
nal structure was built in 1802, and the present one in 
1877. The draw is too heavy to be handled by hand, and 
should be replaced by a turn-table draw. Only general re- 
pairs have been made. The piers and fender-guards need 
extensive repairs and the draw should be painted. 

Neptune-road Bridge (over Boston^ Revere Beach ^■' Lynn

ment, piling, roadway plank and fence are in poor condition. 
The abutment and main bridge should be rebuilt. 

Prison-Point Bridge, (^from^Charlestown to Cambridge'). 

The city pays one-half of the cost of maintenance. This 
bridge was originally built in 1833, and the present struct- 
ure was built in 1876-77. It is a wooden pile bridge, with 
an iron leaf draw. The bridge is in the care of commis- 
sioners, consisting of one commissioner from Boston and one 
from Cambridge. It is in poor condition. Only ordinary 
repairs have been made on the bridge. The draw, machinery, 
hinges, sidewalks and the woodwork on the main bridge near 
the channel need thorough repairing ; the top of the pier and 
the faces of the water-way also need repairing ; this bridge 
will probably be rebuilt within a couple of years, owing to 
the abolishmg of the grade crossing of the Boston & Maine 
Railroad. 

Public G-arden Foot-bridge.

the cost of maintenance. This is a wooden pile bridjye, with 
a wooden turn-table draw. The bridge was originally built 
in 1792-93, was rebuilt in 1854, and repaired in 1871. This 
is an old, weak bridge, and is in an unsafe condition, and 
should be rebuilt. This bridge, and Canal and Prison Point 
bridges are in the care of the same commission, and are kept 
in usable condition only by constant care. Some of the piles 
at the Boston end of the bridge have been recapped, the road- 
way paving has been repaired, and ordinary repairs have been 
made. A few additional piles, caps and stringers are needed ; 
the spur-shores are poor, and some of them should be refitted. 

West Fourth-street Bridge (over Old Colony Division, New

road, near Dorchester station, is a narrow bridge, in a dan- 
gerous condition ; and the bridge On Silver street needs 
repairing. 



•SURVEYING DIVISION. 

The work of the Surveying Division has increased materi- 
ally the past year, owing largely to new legislation, also to 
the great amount of work done by the Paving and Sewer 
Divisions of the Street Department and to the extensive sur- 
veys made for the laying out of Columbia road. 

Nine thousand and two orders, for property owners and 
builders and the various city departments, were attended to 
during 1897-98 m comparison with 8,419 for 1896-97. 

The principal cause for the increased amount of work 
performed was in carrying out the provisions of chapter 426 
of the Acts of 1897. Under this act surveys for taking 
land to be used for the construction of servers and surface 
drains are now prepared by this division, under the direction 
of the Board of Street Commissioners, as are also all sur- 
veys for streams or water-courses where they are to be 
widened or diverted from their origmal channels. 

These surveys are accurately made, as under the act the 
Street Commissioners, in making the takings from the sev- 
eral estates, are required to file in the Registry of Deeds for 
the county of Suffolk a description of the several parcels of 



26 City Docibient No. 12. 

land " as certainly as is required in a common conveyance of 
land." 

Beginning October 1, 1897, two surveying parties were 
assigned to attend to this work. Since that time seven plans 
have been made showing surveys of the amount of land taken 
for sewer purposes from forty-eight different estates for a 
total length of over a mile. 

Fourteen plans have also been completed, showing pro- 
posed changes in brooks, streams, etc., for care of surface 
water, covering a distance of three and one-half miles, show- 
ing the amount of land taken from 123 estates. Other plans 
covering a length of more than four miles are well under way 
and nearing completion. 

The length of edgestone measured for the Street Depart- 
ment shows an increase over the preceding year of 29 per 
cent. ; the amount of block-stone and round-stone paving 
measured shows an increase of 55 per cent, and 47 per cent, 
respectively ; tlie number of square yards of brick sidewalk 
measured in excess of last year shows an increase of 38 per 
cent, and of coal tar concrete 35 per cent. There were 
13,599 square yards of artifical stone sidewalk measured, 
this amount being only slightly in excess of last year. 

The laying out and construction of Columbia road was 
ordered August 31, 1897, under a special act of the Legis- 
lature, chapter 394 of the Acts of 1897. 

The surveys were commenced April 12, 1897, and com- 
pleted Jime 10, 1897, the work being performed by two sur- 
veying parties, one levelling party and two draughtsmen. 

The length of Columbia road, from Blue Hill avenue, at 
Franklin Park to Marine Park, South Boston, is four and 
one-quarter miles, the wddth, as laid out between Blue Hill 
avenue and Edward Everett square, a distance of 9,200 feet, 
is 110 feet, except for a short distance near and south of 
Dudley street ; from Edward Everett square to Marine Park 
it is laid out at various widths. The plans show the amount 
of land in square feet taken from 120 different estates, prop- 
erty owners' names, all buildings and their front elevations, 
the established grade, widths of sidewalks, traffic road, car 
reservation, parkway, planting spaces, the location of 122 
catch-basins, etc. 

One surveying party was employed from July 1 to Sep- 
tember 15, 1897, for the Water Department, making surveys 
of the territoiy bounded by the Charles river. Beacon, Mt. 
Vernon, Temple, Lynde and Leverett streets, in connection 
with the preparation of plans showmg the location of water 
pipes. 



Engikeertng Department. 27 

To accomplish all of the above additional work it was 
found necessary to use at different times several surveying 
parties from the Street Laying-out Department. 

Estimates for construction of the following streets were 
prepared and submitted to the Board of Street Commission- 
ers : Capen street, Dorchester, from Evans street to Selden 
street ; Clarence place, Dorchester ; Wordsworth street. East 
Boston, between Saratoga street and Pope street ; Boylston 
terrace, Jamaica Plain, and AUston Heights, Brighton. 

A total of thirty-seven plans submitted by property owners 
to the Street Commissioners, for the board's approval, have 
been examined as to the proper lines and grades, and either 
approved or revised. This frequently necessitates sending a 
surveying or levelling party to the street for additional 
information. 

Locations for 910 catch-basins on 191 streets were fur- 
nished the Paving and Sewer divisions of the Street Depart- 
ment. This work takes considerable time in looking up 
established grades and other necessary data in order to fix 
upon the best positions. 

Estimates for the amount of edgestone required in front 
of forty-eight estates on thirty-eight different streets was fur- 
nished the Paving Division of the Street Department ; also 
twenty-two edgestone and sidewalk assessment plans were 
made. 

Lot frontages were obtained for the Sewer Division, for 
sewer assessment purposes, on twenty different streets, and 
101 accident and other plans were made for the Law Depart- 
ment. 

There are now filed in the Surveying Division a total 
of 345 plans, size 4 feet by 4 feet, made by the Board of 
Survey and the Board of Street Commissioners, under the 
provisions of chapter 323 of the Acts of 1891, and amend- 
ments thereto, showing the proposed development of terri- 
tory in the outlymg districts. 

A complete alphabetical street index, covering these plans 
has been made during the past year. 

Some of the important buildings where street Imes and 
grades have been given to architects, engineers, builders and 
property owners, are as follows, viz. : Masonic Temple, at the 
corner of Tremont and Boylston streets ; Hotel Reynolds, at 
the corner of Boylston street and Bumstead court ; South

No. 5, seized by the Metropolitan Water Board, 1,700,- 
000,000 gallons were stored as a reserve. This was rendered 
possible by the completion of the stripping contracts in the 
lower portions of the reservoir. The water was raised to 
within 16 feet of the top of the spillway without interfering 
with the completion of the remaining sections under contract.

No water has been drawn from this pond for the supply of 
the city during the year 1897. On January 1, 1897, the 
surface of the pond was at grade 148.78 or .47 feet below 
high water mark ; rising slowly, a grade 149.50 was reached on 
April It). 

During May and June it remained at about this point and 
starting to fall very slowly in July was at grade 147.88 on 
October 24. On January 1, 1898, the water surface was at 
grade 148.75. The Framingham Water Company has drawn 
117,600,000 gallons from the pond during the year.

On January 1, 1897, the surface of the lake was at grade 
127.43 or 6.93 feet below high water mark; filling gradually, 
high water mark was reached on April 13. It remained at 
about this point until the latter part of June when the water 
surface fell, reaching its lowest point, grade 129.43, on 
November 1. 

Since that time the lake filled, and on January 1, 1898, it 
was at grade 130.87. The beds for filtering the water of 
Pegan brook have been in use almost continuously during 
the year and 249,965,000 gallons have been pumped upon 
them. No difficulty has been experienced in their operation 
durmg the winter season. Water has been drawn from the

Aqueducts and Distributing Reservoirs. 

The Sudbury-river aqueduct lias been in use 355.25 days, 
and has delivered 15,442,562,400 gallons to Chestnut-Hill 
Reservoir and 948,000,000 gallons to Lake Cochituate. 

The Cochituate aqueduct has been used 361.5 days and 
delivered 5,738,703,800 gallons. Both aqueducts have been 
cleaned during the year, and all necessary repairs made.

At the West Roxbury pumpmg-station the daily average 
quantity pumped was 283,300 gallons, an increase of 11.9 
per cent, over the amount pumped in the previous year. At 
the East Boston pumping-station 447,200 gallons have been 
pumped for the supply of the high-service district, and 
61,800 gallons per day for the Breed's Island high service. 
Owing to the non-completion of the 36-inch high-service line 
through Roxbury, it has been necessary to maintain the pump- 
mg jDlant on Blue Hill avenue and Wayne street during the 
year, and to keep it in constant service. 

Mystic Lake. 

On January 1, 1897, the water surface was 1.66 feet below 
high water. Water wasted over the dam from January 5 to 
12, January 22 to 25, Febuary 7 to 10, February 13 to 19, 
February 23 to April 24, from April 28 to May 20, May 25 
to June 22, from June 25 to 26, and from June 30 to July 
3, inclusive, when waste stopped. 

The water surface which on July 3 was at grade 6.77 
gradually fell, reaching its lowest point — 0.90 on Novem- 
ber 2. 

Filling gradually since that date it reached grade 6.04 on 
December 19. Waste occurred over the stop-planks from 
December 16 to 24, and on December 27, 28 and 31. On 
January 1, 1898, the water surface was at grade 5.75. The 
fish-way was opened on April 10, and kept open until June 
25, when it was closed and remained so during the remainder 
of the year.

Corrosion of Pipes by Electrolysis. 

A general and marked improvement has been observed 
during the past year in the electrical conditions of the 
water-pipes throughout the city. This result has been at- 
tained largely by reason of the work done by the Boston 
Elevated Railway Company, for the improvement of its re- 
turn circuits. While the danger districts in the city have 
been apparently reduced in number, yet sections still remain 
in which the conditions are far from satisfactory, and sys- 
tematic and frequent observations are necessary to guard 
against damage in the future. 

The electrical investigations have been carried on during 



Engineerin^g Departjient. 83 

the year by Messrs. Stone & Webster. Details of their work 
are given in the following report : 

Stone & Webster, Electrical Experts and Engineers. 
4 Post Office square, Boston, March 7, 1898. 

WiLLiAiM Jackson, Esq., 

Cit^ Engineer, Boston^ llass. : 

Dear Sir : At your request in the autumn of last year, 
1897, we continued our investigation of the electrical condi- 
tions of the water-pipes in the City of Boston, and beg to 
report as follows : 

We first made an examination throughout the entire city 
to find whether there was any general improvement in condi- 
tions over the previous years, and also to find whether there 
were any places that needed special investigation. 

We foimd that the electrical conditions of the piping in 
nearly all sections of the city were such as to indicate less 
liability to corrosion from electrolysis than in the year 1896. 

We did not take as many readings in the general survey 
of the city as in former years, because we have foimd that 
there is in no case a serious danger district local to two or 
thi'ee hydrants. We therefore took only about 600 hydrant 
readmgs, while m 1896 we took about 1,000. The improve- 
ment in general conditions is shown by the small number of 
danger districts, and by the decrease in the percentage of 
positive readings, and by the decrease m the average size 
of the negative readings. This is shown approximately in 
the following table, which is based upon readings taken in the 
same localities each year. The figures are not exact, as some 
of the readmgs are unreliable, and were therefore not taken 
into account in making up the averages : 

1896. 1897. 

Per cent, of Positive readings . . . 28 19 

Average size of Positive readings in volts, .009 .009 
Average size of Negative readings in volts, .023 .006 

Negative readings mdicate safety to the pipes at the points 
at which the readings are taken, because they show that the 
current is flowing on to the pipes at these places. It is im- 
portant, however, to reduce the size of the negative readmgs 
as well as that of the positive, because high negative readings 
show that there is a strong tendency for the current to flow 
on to the pipes, and any current which flows on must pass 
through the joints to be taken off at other points. The size 



84 City Document No. 12. 

of tlie readings must not, however, be considered as a very 
accurate indication of the average conditions for the two j^ears, 
because a change in the amount of moisture in the earth 
might make a very decided change in the size of the readings. 

One exception to the general improvement was found in 
the Dorchester district. Here the new power station on 
Freeport street was started by the West End Street Railway 
Company about a year ago, and in the neighborhood of the 
station we found many places where there were indications of 
current flowing off the service pipes sufficient, probably, to 
do them decided mjury in the course of a few years. We 
had excavations made on Park and Freeport streets and 
found signs of corrosion in four out of six places examined, 
and in one of these places the pipe had been badly attacked. 
We think, therefore, that this district should be carefully 
watched so long as there are indications of general or large 
local flow of current from the pipes to the ground. In 
the part of Park street where the indications of danger were 
most decided there are no car tracks, but the feeder and 
return wires are laid under the street in a wooden conduit, 
the feeders bemg, we are told, encased in tubing, and the 
returns laid in a bed of cement. Between the outside of the 
wooden conduit, which was damp, and the service pipes, we 
found a difference of potential as high as .3 of a volt, a suf- 
ficient indication that a considerable current might be flowing 
between them. 

In addition to the general survey we have made a special 
mvestigation on the boundary lines of the citj^ and find that 
there is a tendency for the current to flow between the piping 
system of Boston and those of the surrounding to'^^ais. In 
general the flow of current is from other piping systems to 
that of Boston, but four places were found where the current 
flowed first in one direction and tlien m the other, though 
apparently not in very large quantities. These four places 
were between Newton and Boston on Tremont street ; 
between Brookline and Boston on Huntington avenue ; be- 
tween Cambridge and Boston on Western avenue, and between 
Hyde Park and Boston on River street. The danger around 
the boundary lines is, therefore, in most cases, to the pipes of 
surrounding towns, but as the current flowing mto the Boston 
piping S3^stem must leave it again and must flow through the 
joints, there is a chance that electrol}i;ic action may be pro- 
duced. 

It is probable that the amount of current flowing in this 
way is not sufficient to do any serious damage, but we think 
that the matter should be examined into more carefully to

had prepared a special testing outfit for the work, but were 
able to use it only a few times owing to the setting in of the 
cold weather. 

It seems to us advisable to continue investigation along 
the boundaries more carefully in the spring, and to take 
measurements from time to time in the Dorchester district 
and certam other localities. 

The accompanying blue prints show the location of posi- 
tive readings of .005 volt or higher for 1896 and 1897. 

At 3'our request we have secured the following detailed 
information regarding the work done by the Boston Elevated 
Railway Company to improve its return ck'cuit : 

" The company has complete records of the electrical condi- 
tions in the different parts of its system and examinations 
and tests are made often enough to show any material 
changes that may occur. For each part of the track a dia- 
gram is prepared showing the difference of potential between 
the track and water-pipes and also the current that will flow 
when these two points are connected. 

" On many of these diagrams the resistances of the rail joints 
are also plotted. These diagrams are on uniform sheets, 
which are bound together so that the data for all parts of the 
system can be readily inspected at any time. 

" In the last three years a large amount of copper has been 
put in to increase the efficiency of the return circuit. This 
copper is in the form of 500,000 circular mil. cable. The 
following table shows the increase in the amount installed: 
"Return circuit copper in 1895 . . . 644,000 lbs. 
" " " " 1896 . . . 902,000 " 

" 1897 . . . 1,370,000 " 

"This last amount is 4,680 lbs. per mile of track. 

" The efficiency of the rail bonds has been greatly increased, 
and all new track is now bonded with two No. 0000 copper 
bonds. 

" A large amount of reconstruction has been done, and in all 
this work modern methods of bonding have been employed./^ 
Very truly yours, 
(Signed) Stone & Webster. 

Distribution. 

On the Cochituate Works 26.6 miles of pipe were laid and 
7.5 miles were abandoned, making a net increase of 19.1 
miles and a total length of 627.1 miles. 



86 City Document No. 12. 

A statement of the larger sizes of mains laid during the 
past year is as follows : 

In Fisher avenue, Brookline, between Boylston street and 
Fisher-Hill Reservoir, a 42-inch pipe was laid for a distance 
of 1,108 feet, giving a second line where the high-service 
supply for the city has been dependent upon a single 30-inch 
pipe ; the Dorchester liigh service has been advanced by 
laying 5,100 Imear feet of 36-inch pipe in Columbus avenue, 
Walnut park and Georgia street, and 1,506 linear feet in Blue 
Hill avenue, Geneva avenue and Bowdoin street, making the 
36-incli line continuous as far as Grove Hall, with the excep- 
tion of a short gap at the crossing of Stony brook which can 
be filled up early in the coming season. Owing to the fact 
that Congress street is about to be raised over the tracks of 
the N. E. R.R., it was necessary to lay 1,520 linear feet of 
30-inch and 24-inch pipe in Danby and C streets, abandon- 
ing at the same time 1,464 linear feet of 30-inch and 24-inch 
pipe in D and Congress streets, the latter work being done 
by contract; in South street and the roadway of Arnold 
arboretum, 1,500 linear feet of 24-inch pipe was laid (about 
840 feet of it by contract) forming part of the West Rox- 
bury high service. The 24-inch low service in Dorchester 
was extended, by laying a 20-inch main in Adams street for 
a distance of 5,474 feet, making a needed improvement in 
the service at Neponset and Milton Lower Mills. For better 
fire protection a 20-inch pipe was laid in Canton street, from 
Albany to Tremont street, a distance of 2,554 feet, connect- 
ing with the large supply mains in the latter street. In East 
Boston, 1,500 linear feet of 20-inch j)ipe was laid in Border 
street, from jNIaverick street to Central square, in extension 
of the 20-inch line laid last season. 

An unusually large amount of relaying has been done 
during the year ; among the important pieces of work of this 
class are the following : Washington street, Kneeland street 
to Dover street, relaid with 16-inch ; State street, Washing- 
ton street to Commercial street, relaid with 16-inch ; Maver- 
ick street. New street to Chelsea street, relaid with 16-inch ; 
Boylston street, Tremont street to Park square, relaid with 
12-inch ; Tremont street, Boylston street to Warrenton 
street, relaid with 12-inch. 

The necessity for relaying must become more urgent each 
successive year. Up to 1853 about 731 miles of water-pipes, 
less than twelve inches in diameter, had been laid in the 
streets of the city, and during the succeeding twenty years 
163 additional miles of these smaller pipes were laid ; a large 
part of this pipe is still in service, dangerously weak in places, 



Engineering Departivient. 87 

and everywhere badly tuberculated and filled up ; two pieces 
of pipe have been recently taken out while relaying, in which 
the sound iron remaining represented in one case but 51 per 
cent., and in the other but 59 per cent, of the original sec- 
tion, the unsound parts being soft enough to be readily cut 
with a knife and extending in places almost through the 
pipe ; the destruction of the iron in these two cases was not 
caused by the action of electricity generated for street rail- 
way purposes, electric lighting, etc., but was due to the soil 
in which the pipe was laid. In relaying the older pipes 
opportunity is taken in almost every case to increase the 
sizes, largely for the purpose of affordmg better fire protec- 
tion. How important this action is, can be fully realized 
when it is remembered that the "hand tubs" of 1850 have 
given place to the modern steam fire-engines, some of which, 
now in commission in Boston, have a capacity of 1,350 gal- 
lons per minute. 

On the jNIystic Works the distributing mains have been 
extended 3.2 miles, and 4.9 miles have beenrelaid; the total 
length now connected with the system is 187.2 miles. 

There has been an increase of 178 in the number of 
hydrants connected with the Cochituate Works, making a 
total number of 6,842. 

On the Mystic Works 78 hydrants have been added, and 
the total number in service is 1,718. 

During the year all main-pipe and other castings have been 
carefully inspected at the foundries; plans have been made 
for all pipe laid and lines and grades given when required ; 
217 petitions for main pipe have been reported upon and 68 
contracts for rock excavation have been made. The large 
number of patterns of special castings, valves, hydrants, etc., 
have been marked with brass numbers, catalogued and sys- 
tematically arranged in a storeroom. Various studies have 
been made, and a large amount of general routine work has 
been done. 

Appended to this report will be found the usual tables of 
rainfall, consumption, etc., for the past year, and in addition, 
tables are given of the rainfall, rainfall collected, and per- 
centage collected on the Cochituate water-shed since 1863, 
on the Sudbury-river water-shed since 1875, and on the Mys- 
tic water-shed since 1878. These will be found valuable for 
future reference.

[FROM THE CITY ENGINEER'S REPORT TO THE BOARD OF 
PARK COMMISSIONERS.] 

RiVERWAY. 

Plans were prepared during the early part of the year by 
Mr. A. H. French, engineer of the town of Brookline, in 
consultation with this department, for building the bridge 
on Longwood avenue. The construction of the bridge is 
now in progress. 

Jamaica Park. 

The work of grading the drive and adjoinmg grounds on 
the westerly side of the pond, under a contract with F. A. 
Snow, dated December 14, 1896, was completed in the 
autumn. The total payments under the contract were 
$7,584.60. 

Five hundred and fifty-five lineal feet of wall, for support- 
ing the drive and the slope above it, were built by the Park 
Department force. 

The Metropolitan Water Board has laid a 48-inch water 
pipe through this drive from Perkins street to the Arborway. 

The pumps and boilers at the pumping station were re- 
paired in the spring, the mains from the pumps to the reser- 
voir on Franklin Park have all been laid, and the reservoir 
is now ready for use. It will be necessary to erect and con- 
nect the water-posts with the main pipe before the water from 
this source can be used for watering the roads. 

Arborway. 

The wall, built under a contract with Thomas F. Broder- 
ick, dated December 1, 1896, was finished on July 15, at a 
cost of ii<5,670. 

On June 21 a contract was made with John A. Whitte- 
more's Sons for building a wall on the line between the park- 
way and the grounds of the Bussey Institution; this work 
was completed on October 2, at a cost of 82,389.50. 

Arnold Arboretum and Bussey Park. 

The work of grading the road on the northerly side of 
Peter's hill, from the junction of Bussey and South streets 
to the junction of Bussey and Walter streets, under a con- 
tract with James Doonan, dated October 5, 1896, was com- 



128 City Document No. 12. 

pleted on September 28 ; the amount of the final estimate 
was ^7,388.57. 

A plan was made of the land to be taken for an entrance 
to the Arboretum from Fairview street. 

Franklin Park. 

The drauis from the carriage shelter at the Refectory have 
been finished and underground wires laid and lamps erected 
for the lighting of the section of the park between the en- 
trance opposite Columbia road and the Refectory. 

Strandway. 

In June a plan was made of the land afterwards taken for 
park purposes between the Strandway and the Old Colony 
Division of the New York, New Haven and Hartford Rail- 
road. 

The work of filling, under a contract with Hugh Farrell, 
dated October 19, 1896, was continued during the year. 

The extensions of the storm overflow sewers at I and N 
streets have been completed at a cost of ^$1, 618. 70 for the 
former and of 12,887.50 for the latter. 

Work under a contract with Jones & Meehan, dated 
June 4, 1896, for building a wall and grading between O 
street and Marine Park was continued until June 29, when 
the work was taken possession of by the Park Commissioners 
and bids were advertised for finishing the work. On July 
26 a contract was made with Simon J. Donavan for complet- 
ing the work, which work is now in progress. 

Marine Park. 

During the summer it was discovered that a cast-iron sec- 
tion in each of six of the columns supporting the iron pier 
had cracked vertically ; the cracks in each case are in a 
single section of a column between high and low water; they 
were probably caused by the freezing of water which had in 
some way leaked into the column and filled the space be- 
tween the iron and the concrete. The cracks will cause no 
iujury to the structure except in appearance. A report was 
made to the Superintendent of Parks recommending that the 
cracks be filled by calking them with a mixture of sal-am- 
moniac and iron filings. This method was followed success- 
fully in the case of two of the columns which cracked soon 
after the pier was built. 



Engineerhstg Department. 129 



North End Beach. 



The sea-wall for supporting the approach to the westerly 
pier, built under a contract with William L. Miller, was com- 
pleted on May 20, at a cost of 18,358.95. 

On February 19 a contract was made with Alexander 
Mclnnis for building two promenade and bath-house piers. 
This work was finished on November 20, at a cost of fBl,- 
090.35. The westerly pier is located with its outer line five 
feet back from the Harbor Commissioners' line ; it is fifty feet 
in width and extends from the line dividing the park prop- 
erty from that of the Street Department, easterl}'^, a distance 
of 442 feet, the easterly end being semi-circular in plan. 
The pier has two floors and the upper floor is covered by a 
roof for a length of 100 feet at the outer or easterly end. 
Connection is made with the shore by separate approaches to 
both floors at the westerly end, each approach starting from 
the abutment at grade 21 above city base. The approaches 
are each 19 feet wide and about 90 feet long. 

The work included the building of the pier for the founda- 
tion of the men's bath-house, which is built parallel to the 
division line between the Park and Street Department proper- 
ties ; the portion of the pier next to the shore for a width of 
19 feet and a length of 60 feet has the floor at grade 18 and 
is covered by the main building ; the remaining portion is 
15 feet 6 inches wide and 168 feet long. 

A fender-guard was built on the property line and also 
along the Harbor Commissioners' line to and arovmd the 
curved end of the pier. 

The approach to the water from the bath-house is by a 
passageway under the shore end of the approaches to the 
promenade pier, to a platform from which inclmes extend to 
the beach, one towards the shore to about high-water line and 
the other towards the water to about mean low-water. 

The easterly pier extends from the wall built in 1896 par- 
allel with and 7 feet 8 inches from the division line between 
the park property and that of Fiske's wharf; it is 20 feet 
in width and 322 feet in length ; it has but one floor, but is 
built of sufficient strength to support a second floor if it shall 
be found desirable in the future ; the pier is covered by a 
roof except for a length of 45 feet at the shore end; a 
fender-guard was built on the property line and around the 
end of the pier. 

Both piers are of wood, the piles and spurshores being of 
oak ; the caps, stringers and floor plank are of hard pine, all 
surfaces exposed to view being planed. The roofs are 



130 City Document No. 12. 

supported b}'^ hard-pine posts, girders and rafters with spruce 
purlins and boarding all planed; the roofs are covered with 
canvas, well painted. The hard pine is finished in oil and 
the spruce is painted. 

On September 10 a contract was made with the James 
Russell Boiler Works Company for building iron railings on 
both of the piers and on the masonry approaclies to them. 
This work was completed on December 31, at a cost of 
$3,678. The railing is 3 feet 6 inches high ; the posts 
are of cast-iron, about 13 feet 6 inches apart on centres, 
every alternate post on the uncovered portion of the piers 
being a lamp-post; there are two rails of two and one-half 
inch wrought-iron pipe with three-quarter inch round wrought- 
iron palings between the rails. The total length of the rail- 
ing is 2,978 feet. 

A wooden approach from the women's bath-house to the 
beach was built in June ; this is similar to the approach from 
the men's bath-house. 

Drains were built connecting the two bath-houses with the 
sewer in Commercial street. 



Copp's Hill Tekeage. 

The work being done under a contract with Perkins & 
White, dated September 16, 1896, was finished on September 
24, 1897. The total payments under the contract were 
$24,606.57. This vrork consisted of the doing of all grading 
and loaming, the building of all walls, drains and artificial 
stone walks on this park. Electric wires for lighting have 
been laid in conduits and two posts for arc lamps have been 
erected. A drinkmg-fountain has been placed on the upper 
terrace. This park is now completed with the exception of 
the planting. 

PLAYGROUNDS. 
First-street Playground. 

This ground was cleared and graded early in the year and 
the surplus loam was carted to the Strandway and stored for 
use there. 

Fellows-street Playground. 

Drains and catch-basins for this ground w^ere built in the 
spring, and the land taken for an extension of the playground 
has been filled to the grade of the adjoining streets. 



ENGESTEERmG DePAKTMENT. 131 

Neponset Playground. 

The work of construction done here consisted of the build- 
ing of a bulkhead with tide-gates on the easterly side of 
Tenean street across the creek which drains this territory. 
This allows a free outlet for the water from the playground, 
but prevents the tide-water from backing up on to it. 



132 City Document No. 12. 



[FROM THE CITY ENGINEER'S REPORT TO THE 
STREET DEPARTMENT.] 

The work done for the Street Department covers the same 
ground as in previous years, namely, the supervision of the con- 
struction of assessment streets, boulevards and street paving. 

The repairs on the asphalt pavements upon which the mainte- 
nance guaranty has expired have been supervised in accordance 
with your directions, and a table is annexed gi^^ng repairs and 
cost thereof in detail ; a table has also been prepared showing the 
details of all asphalt pavement in the city and a copy is enclosed. 

On Blue Hill avenue, the work of construction has been com- 
pleted to Walk Hill street ; from that point to Mattapan, the 
construction awaits the decision of the courts as to the method 
of abolishing the grade crossing on the New England Railroad. 

On Columbus-avenue extension, the section from West Walnut 
Park to Ritchie street has been built during the year. The work 
of constructing the new Stony Brook channel has delayed the 
completion of the remainder of the street, but it is expected that 
the entire avenue will be completed in 1898. 

On Commonwealth avenue, a certain amount of work was done 
near Chestnut Hill avenue late in the season. 

Columbia road was laid out during the year, and work 
promptly commenced upon it. The work done consists of a large 
amount of earth and rock excavation, between Blue Hill avenue 
and the New England Railroad. 

The table showing lengths and areas of paving on accepted 
streets has been brought up to February 1, 1898. 

Street pa\nng has been supervised in all cases where requested. 
All pacing laid on the before-mentioned avenues is included in 
the quantities given. All granite paving laid on concrete base 
has been laid with pitch and pebble joints. 

Block stone pavement on a concrete base, laid with pitch and 
pebble joints, 20,287 square yards. 

Block stone pavement on a gravel base, laid with pitch and 
pebble joints, 17,2.34 square yards. 

Block stone pavement on a gravel base, laid with gravel joints, 
67,625 square yards, not including gutter paving. 

Trinidad sheet asphalt, with a binder course of asphaltic 
cement concrete, on an American cement concrete base, 9,715.1 
square yards, at an average cost of about S3 per square yard. 

Sicilian rock asphalt on an American cement concrete base or 
a Portland cement concrete base, 10,032,8 square yards, at an 
average cost of about $3 per square yard where on American 
cement concrete, and about 83.12^ per square yard where on 
Portland cement concrete. 



Engineering Department. 133 

Seyssel rock asphalt, on an American cement concrete base or 
a Portland cement concrete base, 1,801 square yards, at a cost of 
$3 per square yard. 

Asphaltina, on an American Portland cement concrete base, 
1,639.5 square yards, at a cost of $2.75 per square yard. 

The costs per square yard given above do not include the prep- 
aration of the roadbed. 

Edgestone set, 88,649 linear feet; gutter paving laid, 33,615 
square yards; brick sidewalks laid, 42,962 square yards. 

Crushed stone sidewalks constructed, 35,247 square yards; 
flagging crosswalks laid, 7,777 square yards. 

All asphalt paving is laid with a maintenance guaranty for 
five years.

MISCELLANEOUS WORK AND CONSTRUCTION IN 

1897. 

Canal Bridge. 

Plans and specifications were made for rebuilding the up- 
stream sidewalk on the Cambridge side of the draw ; the 
work was done by W. H. Ryau & Co., under a contract 
dated May 31 ; the cost of the contract was $1,749.51. 

Congress-street Grade Crossing. 

The Commission appointed by the Superior Court to pre- 
scribe the manner of abolishing the grade crossing of Con- 
gress street and the tracks of the New England Railroad in 
South Boston, filed its report on March 10, 1897. The re- 
port was accepted by the court and a decree was entered 
March 13, 1897. This decree provides for the discontinu- 
ance of " that portion of Congress street east of a point on 
that street about 388.18 feet east of the easterly boundary 
of A street, over the railroad and land of the New England 
Railroad Company to the westerly side line of B street," 
and in substitution therefor lays out a new street 100 
feet wide m extension of Summer street from the harbor 
line on the Boston side of Fort Pouit channel to a junction 
with Congress street, as heretofore planned, at L-street bridge. 
The street will cross Fort Point channel by a steel plate 
girder bridge resting on masonry piers and abutments and a 
double retractile draw, havmg a clear channel-way of fifty 
feet for the passage of vessels. 

On the South Boston side of the channel the new street 
will be filled solid, except where it crosses A street, the tracks 
of the New England Railroad, B and C streets ; at each of 
these crossings substantial steel bridges will be built having 
paved roadways of granite and asphalt sidewalks. The 
bridges will be supported by masonry abutments and steel 
piers resting on masonry foundations. 

The entire length of the new street will have a roadway 
of seventy-six feet wide between curb lines paved with 
granite and two sidewalks each twelve feet wide. The 
gradient of this new street ascends from the established 
grade of Summer-street extension on the westerly side of 
Fort Point channel at a rate not exceeding 1.75 feet per 
100 feet to A street, thence at a gradient of less than one 
foot per 100 feet to the raih'oad yard, thence level across the 



Engineering Department. 157 

railroad tracks allowing a clear head room of about nineteen 
feet, thence descending at a rate of less than nine inches per 
100 feet to C street and thence descending to the grade of 
L-streef bridge -with a gradient not exceeding 1.50 feet per 
100 feet. 

Three approaches to the new street are laid out by the 
decree ; the first approach calls for the widening of Congress 
street to a width of eighty feet, from Atlantic avenue to the 
harbor line on the westerly side of Fort Point channel, and 
the building of a new street eighty feet wdde along the 
harbor line from Congress street to Summer-street exten- 
sion ; the second approach calls for a new street sixty feet 
wide, from A street along substantially the present location 
of the New England Railroad to a junction with the new 
street near the harbor line on the easterly side of Fort 
Point Channel ; and the third approach calls for the build- 
ing of portions of three streets already planned on the land 
of the Commonwealth, part of D street eighty feet wide 
from its intersection with the new street to Fargo, part of 
Fargo street fifty feet wide between D and C streets and part 
of C street sixty feet wide between Fargo street and Con- 
gress street. The gradient of the first approach does not 
exceed 1.60 feet per 100 feet and the gradients of the 
second and third approaches do not exceed 1.70 feet per 100 
feet. All of the approaches are to have granite paved road- 
ways and brick or crushed stone sidewalks. 

The decree provides that the New England Railroad Com- 
pany shall build the bridge over its land, including the abut- 
ments, and that the City of Boston shall do all the other 
work required. 

The decree also provides that the expense of the whole 
work shall be borne jointly by the Commonwealth, the City 
of Boston, and the New England Railroad Company, in the 
following proportions : the Commonwealth 31 per cent., the 
city 80 per cent, and the railroad company 39 per cent. 

The necessarj^ authority for the construction of the bridge 
across Fort Point channel has been obtained from the Secre- 
tary of War, as given in the following license : 

Mayor's Office, City Hall, Boston, April 30, 1897. 
Hon. Russell A. Alger, Secretary of War: 

Dear Sir : In compliance with a decree of the Superior Court 
of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the City of Boston 
desires to build a steel girder bridge, on stone piers, with a double 
retractile draw on a pile foundation, across Fort Point channel;

struction, repair and preservation of certain pubUc works on rivers 
and harbors, and for other purposes, " it is declared that it shall 
not be lawful to construct by authority of the legislative act of a 
State any bridge, not already authorized by law, over a navigable 
water of the United States wholly within the limits of such State, 
without the approval by the Secretary of War of the location and 
plans of such bridge ; and that, without the permission of the 
Secretary of War, it shall not be lawful to build any wharf, pier, 
dolphin, boom, dam, weir, breakwater, bulkhead, jetty or 
structure of any kind outside established harbor lines, or where

Engineering Department. 159 

channel of any navigable watei' of the United States, unless 
approved and authorized by the Secretary of War. 

And irhereas, The City of Boston, Massachusetts, having 
autliority under an act of the Legislature of the State of Massa- 
chusetts to construct a bridge over Fort Point channel in said city 
and State, has applied for the approval of the locations and 
plans of the same, and for permission to build a sea-wall on the 
pier-head line, between Summer street and Congress street in 
said city, and along the line of widening of Congress street, and 
to fill back of said wall as shown on the attached blue-prints 
submitted by said city ; 

JVoic, therefore^ This is to certify that the Secretary of "War 
hereby approves the location and plans of said bridge, and hereby 
gives the said city permission to build a sea-wall, as described 
above, and to fill back of said wall ; all as shown on said blue- 
prints, subject to the conditions contained in license from the 
Board of Harbor and Land Commissioners of the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts to said city, dated September 7, 1897, and 
numbered 2,043, and to the following further condition: 

That the work herein permitted and required to be done shall 
be subject to the supervision and approval of the Engineer officer 
of the United States Army in charge of the locality. 

WITNESS my hand this 23d day of September, 1897. 
(Signed) G. L. Meiklejhon, 

Acting Secretary of War. 

The general plan for the bridge across Fort Point channel 
has also been apj)roved by the Board of Harbor and Land 
Commissioners. Surveys have been made for the entire 
length of the new street and borings have been taken to 
ascertain the character of the material upon which will rest 
the foundations of all the abutments and piers. 

A contract was made on October 7, 1897, with Ross & 
Fowler for building the abutment on the westerly line of 
Fort Point channel for the sum of $14,300, and the work is 
now nearly completed. 

The plans and specifications for the masonry piers in and 
the abutment on the westerly line of P^ort Point channel are 
all finished and bids for doing the work will be received 
early in INlarch, calling for the completion of the work before 
September 1, 1898. The plans for the other structures to 
be built by the city are well under way and it is expected that 
the whole work will be placed under contract during the 
summer. 

Dorchester avenue and Summer-street Extension. 
The work of building a sea-wall along the harbor line be- 
tween its intersection with Federal street and its intersection 



160 City Document No. 12. 

with the southerl}^ line of Summer-street extension has been 
carried on during the year under contracts made with W. L. 
Miller & W. H. Ellis dated April 6, June 23, and August 
10, 1897, and with W. J. Lawler dated January 14, 1898. 

For the remaining sections of the wall adjoining Federal- 
street bridge, bids will be received early in February requir- 
ing the work to be completed on or before April 1, 1898. 

At the present time about 1,500 feet of wall has been built 
extendmg f rom Summer street to a point about 450 feet south 
of Mount Washington-avenue bridge, excepting a short 
section at this bridge. Work on this section has been de- 
layed because of the necessary changes required to be made 
in the large sewer which discharges at this point. 

A large amount of the filling back of the wall has been 
deposited; part of this filling was dredged material from 
Mystic river and LjTin harbor, but the most of it has been 
obtained from excavations made in various parts of the city 
for the foundations of large buildings, notably the new 
Masonic Temple. 

Plans have been prepared for the widening of Federal- 
street bridge at the end adjoming Dorchester-avenue exten- 
sion and this work will be finished early in the summer. 

Dumping Wharf foe the Sanitary Division of the 
Street Department. 

Plans and estimates were prepared for strengthening Fort 
Hill Wharf ; the work was done by George H. Cavanagh. 
An estimate was made of the cost of converting a part of 
Snow's Arch Wharf into a dumping plant ; the work was not 
done. 

East Boston Ferries. 

NortJi Ferry. At the request of the Superintendent of 
Streets a report was made on the condition of the piers of 
the North Ferry. 

South Ferry^ Fast Boston side. Estimates were made for 
repairing the southerly drop, which was run into by a ferry- 
boat August 31, and badly damaged. Plans and specifica- 
tions were later made for replacing the drop with a new one, 
and the work was let to John M. Brooks for a contract price 
of $5,433.50 ; the new di'op was put in use December 31, 
1897. 

Plans and specifications were made for building a tank for 
the new drop ; the work was done under contract by John 
M. Brooks for $1,737.50. 



Engineering Department. 161 

Plans were made for rebuilding the foundation, and the 
work was done by W. H. Ellis Company. The flooring of 
the landings was raised to grade 13.50 by the Ferry Division 
of the Street Department, the extreme raise being 14 inches. 

Plans were made for a rearrangement of the landing and 
piers, using three drops in place of two. 

Harvard-street Bridge, over New England 
Railroad. 

Plans and specifications were made for building an 8-ft. 
sidewalk on this bridge ; the work was done by the Street 
Department. 

Hyde Park-avenue Bridge, over Stony Brook. 

Plans were prepared for building this bridge, and the work 
was done by the Street Department. 

Ipswich Street. 

Plans and specifications were completed in November for 
building the retain ing-wall and two bridges required for this 
street. One of the bridges will support the Parlcway on 
Charlesgate West, where it crosses the street, and the other 
bridge carries the street over the Fens water-way. 

On November 29 a contract was made with Messrs. Hol- 
brook, Cabot & Dailey for constructing all the masonry- 
required for the walls and bridges. The work is now in 
progress, and will be finished early in the coming season. 

Miscellaneous. 

Surveys have been made and plans are being prepared for 
building foundations for a bridge on Columbia road, over the 
Old Colony Division of the New York, New Haven and 
Hartford Railroad. 

Surve}-s have also been made for determining the amount 
of excavation from the hills on Story and Fifth streets, near 
H street, South Boston ; the earth is being used for filling on 
Columbia road, at the foot of Mercer street. 

Widths of Draw-Openings. 

The widtlis of draw-openings in the bridges over tide- 
water in this city have all been remeasured for tliis report.
