Bridges. 



The annual inspection of all highway and foot-bridges has 
been made, together with special examinations when notified 
by the Superintendent of Streets of the progress of repairs. 

The management of all the bridges and draws between 
Cambridge and Boston, by the Acts of 1898, chapter 467, is 
vested in a board of two commissioners, which has charge of 
the following eight bridges, viz. : Cambridge street, Canal, 
Essex street. Harvard, North Harvard street. Prison Point, 
West Boston, and Western avenue to Cambridge ; one-half 
the cost of the maintenance of these bridges is paid by each 
of these cities. 

In the list of bridges those marked with a star (*) are 
over navigable waters, and are each provided with a draw, 
the openings in which are shown in a table in Appendix A. 
The widths of the openings have been measured for this 
report.

Agassiz-road Bridge (in the Fens^. 

This bridge was built in 1887, of brick and stone masonry. 
It is maintained by the Park Department, and is in good 
condition. 

Albany-street Bridge (over the Boston ^ Albany R.R. Freight 

Ti'aeks}. 

The original structure was built in 1856-57, and rebuilt 
in 1867-68. The present bridge was built in 1886-87, and 
is maintained in part by the City of Boston, and in part by 
the Boston & Albany Railroad. Some patching of the road- 
way deck has been done during the year, but the whole 
lower planking is poor and should be examined carefully 
when the bridge is sheathed again. The sidewalk planking 
is very thin and should be renewed. 

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

This is an iron bridge, built in 1892. The bridge is in 
good condition. 

Arhorway Bridge (over Stony brook, iti Parkway, near Forest 
Hills 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 main- 



Engineering Department. 11 

tained by the Park Department. The sidewalk planking is 
poor and should be renewed and the fences painted. 

Ashland-street Bridge (over Providence Division, New York, 
Neiv Haven cf Hartford R.R., West Roxhury^. 

The present structure is of iron, and was built in 1875. 
The bridge has been sheathed during the year and a new 
fence built. 

Ashmont-street and Dorchester-avenue Bridge {over Old Colony 
Division, New York, New Haven ^ Hartford R.R.^. 

This is a wooden bridge, formerly maintained by the rail- 
road company. It was lengthened on the Boston side in 
1895, and now the city maintains 75 feet of the northerly 
part. The fencing needs painting, and some of the roadway 
planking needs renewal. 

Athens-street Bridge (^over Midland Division, New York, New 
Haven ^ Hartford R.R.^. 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1874. The sidewalk plank- 
ing has been renewed, the deck patched and the roadway 
sheathed. The ironwork is very rusty ; the deck planking 
and fences are in poor condition. The bridge should be 
stripped and painted. 

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

This is a steel-plate girder bridge, built in 1893-94, and 
is maintained by the Park Department. With the exception 
of the sheathing and sidewalk planking the bridge is in good 
condition. The sidewalk planking is thin, and should be 
renewed. 

Beacon-street Bridge (over Outlet of the Fens'). 

This iron bridge with a wooden roadway was built in 
1880-81. During the year the roadway portion of the 
bridge has been rebuilt in steel and concrete construction, 
consisting of 18-inch steel I-beams, filled between and encased 
with Portland cement concrete, strengthened with expanded 
metal, the old iron girders being left in place and included 
in the new construction. 

The street car rails on the bridge were laid on ties bedded 
in sand, trenches of suitable size for the tracks being pro- 
vided in the concrete filling over the steel beams. This 



12 City Document No. 15. 

construction has proved to be efficient in preventing the 
rumbling noise usually caused by street cars in crossing 
bridges. 

The roadway was paved with hard-pine blocks treated by 
the creo-resinate process, and the sidewalks were replanked 
with spruce. 

Beacon-street Bridge (over Boston ^ Albany R.R.^. 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1884-85, widened in 1887-88, 
and the central roadway further widened in 1890 for the con- 
venience and at the expense of the Street Railway Company. 
All the ironwork above the floor has been painted during the 
year ; the part below, however, is badly rusted and should be 
cleaned and painted when the deck is renewed. The facias 
are still in a poor condition. 

Bellevue-street Bridge (^over Muddy river, in Riverway^. 

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 maintained jointly by them. 

Bennington-street Bridge (over Boston, Revere Beach ^ Lynn 

R.R.-). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1889, and is in fair condi- 
tion. It will soon be replaced by a new and wider bridge, and 
a contract has been made for doing the work. (See page 86). 

Berkeley-street Bridge (over Boston ^ Albany R.R. and 
Providence Divisio7i, W. Y. N. H. ^ H. R.R.^. 

The bridge over the tracks of the Boston & Albany Rail- 
road, which is maintained by the city, was originally built 
for the Boston Water Power Company, and accepted by the 
city in 1869. The structure over these tracks is a through 
plate girder bridge, and was built in 1891. 

During the year new stringers and stringer seats were put 
under the street railway tracks, a new deck laid and the 
whole bridge cleaned and painted. 

Berkeley-street Bridge (over Providence Division, New York, 
New Haven ^ Hartford R.R.). 

This bridge was closed to travel in November, 1901, and 
has since been removed. 



Engineeeikg Depaetment. 13 



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

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

Bernier-street Foot-bridge (over Muddy river^. 

This is a segmental masonry arch of 52 feet span and 14 
feet rise. It was built in 1893 by the Park Departments of 
Boston and Brookline, and is maintained jointly by them. 

Berwick-park Foot-bridge (over Providence Division, New 
York, Neiv Haven ^ Bartford M.B.^. 

This is an iron foot-bridge, erected in 1894. The iron 
stairs and piers were new, but the trusses and floor-beams 
were those built for Franklin street in 1883. The ironwork 
has been painted during the year, and the bridge is in good 
condition. 

Blakemore-street Bridge (over Providence Division, New York, 
New Haven ^ Hartford R.R.^. 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1881-82. It is now in 
good condition, except sidewalk planking, which should be 
renewed. 

Bolton-street Bridge (over Midland Division, Neiv York, New 
Haven ^ Hartford R.RS). 

This is a wooden bridge, built in 1889. The fences 
should be repaired and painted ; the roadway planking is 
only in a fair condition, and will soon need renewal. 

Boston-street Bridge (over Old Colony Division, Neiv York, 
New Haven ^ Hartford R.RS). 

This is a new plate girder bridge, built in 1900. It has 
two roadways, each 18 feet 3 inches wide in the clear, and 
two sidewalks, each 7 feet mde ; the lower planking is 
4-inch hard pine, and the wearing surface is 2-inch spruce. 
The sidewalks are of 2-inch hard pine. The surface of the 
bridge is maintained by the city, and the rest of the struct- 
ure by the railroad company. The bridge is in good con- 
dition. 



14 City Document No. 15. 



Boylston-street Arch Bridge (in the Fens^. 

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

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

This is an iron bridge, built in 1886-88. The ironwork 
above the floor has been painted during the year with the 
exception of the fences ; these should be painted. The iron- 
work below the floor is very rusty, and should be cleaned 
and painted. 

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

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 1894, and is maintained by the 
Park Department. It is in good condition. 

Broadway Bridge (over Fort Point Channel). 

The draw and its foundation were rebuilt in 1874-75, and 
the woodwork on the draw was renewed in 1896. The 
bridge, with the exception of the draw-span, was closed to 
travel September 3, preparatory to rebuilding. A temporary 
foot-bridge was built outside the lines of the street, but util- 
izing the old draw-span to serve for foot travel during the 
construction of the new bridge, the foot-bridge being opened 
to travel September 7. The old bridge is now being removed. 

The wooden draw pier has been repaired, all portions not 
recently rebuilt, having been removed and replaced with new 
work, except a few piles which were in good condition. 

(See page 97). 

Broadway Bridge (over Boston ^ Albany R.R.^. 

The old bridge, built in 1880-1, was replaced in 1900 by 
the present bridge. The paint used on this bridge has not 
worn well, and it will be advisable to paint the whole struct- 
ure within a year to prevent its rusting. 

Brookline-avenue Bridge (over Boston ^ Albany R.R.^. 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1884. It is in good con- 
dition with exception of the ironwork below the floor, which 
should be painted. 



Engineering Department. 15 

Brookline-avenue Bridge (^over Muddy River ^ in the Riverway^. 

This is a semi-circular masonry arch of 15 feet span. It 
was built in 1892 by the Park Departments of Boston and 
Brookline, and is maintained by them jointly. 

Byron-street Bridge (over Boston, Revere Beach ^ 
Lynn R.R.^. 

This is a wooden bridge, built in 1889. The fences have 
been painted, and minor repairs made. The bridge is in poor 
condition. The bulkheads are somewhat rotten ; some of 
the filling beneath one of the sills has settled ; the deck 
planking is rotten at the butts ; the curb sticks and sidewalk 
planking are poor, and the iron rods need painting. 

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

This is a wooden pile bridge with a wooden leaf draw. It 
was rebuilt in 1884 ; the draw was rebuilt in 1891. The 
bridge is in the care of the Commissioners for the Boston and 
Cambridge bridges, and the city pays one-half the cost of 
maintenance. A few deck planks on the main bridge and 
draw have been renewed and the roadway sheathed ; the 
planking on the piers and waterway is in poor condition ; 
the fender-guard on the Cambridge side needs repairing ; the 
deck planking has been repaired in spots several times, and 
is only in fair condition ; that on the draw needs renewal ; 
the sidewalk planking needs repairs ; one draw arm on the 
Cambridge side should be renewed ; the draw needs adjust- 
ing ; both abutments need repairing ; new irons are needed on 
the waterway ; the bridge should be painted, and a boat 
should be provided.

The bridge was originally built in 1808, was rebuilt in 1852, 
and was again rebuilt and widened in 1874. The bridge is 
in the care of the Commissioners for the Boston and Cam- 
bridge bridges. The paving on the Cambridge end has been 
repaired, and the up-stream corner of the draw-pier has 
been partially rebuilt, oak piles and hard-pine timber being 
used ; a few deck planks on the draw have been renewed, 
and the remainder are in poor condition. The sidewalks, 
sidewalk bulkheads, roadway planking near the curbs, and 
fencing that have not recently been rebuilt are poor, and need 
rebuilding ; additional stringers are needed near the draw, 
and some pile work is needed near the ends of the bridge ; 
some of the spur-shores need refitting ; the roadway pave- 
ment on the Boston side of the draw should be repaired ; the 
up-stream fender-guards are in poor condition; the draw, 
track circle, and wharf need extensive repairs, and the bridge 
should be painted.

on the fence and planking, and the bridge should be painted ; 
otherwise the bridge is in fair condition. 

Central-avenue Bridge (over Neponset River, Dorchester 
Lower Mills'). 

This is an iron bridge, and was built in 1876. The city 
maintains the part within its limits. The woodwork of the

the year. 

CJiarlestown Bridge (from Boston to Charlestown}. 

This bridge was opened to public travel November 27, 1899. 
The bridge over the river consists of ten spans of deck-plate 
girders, each 85 feet long, resting on masonry piers, and 
a swing or turn-table draw 240 feet 6 inches long. The 
width of the bridge for its entire length is 100 feet, 
divided into two sidewalks, each 10 feet wide, two road- 
ways for street traffic, each 27 feet 9 inches wide, and a 
roadway for surface street cars 22 feet wide. Over the car 
space are the elevated tracks of the Boston Elevated Rail- 
way Company. There are two draw channels for the pas- 
sage of vessels, each 50 feet wide. The height of the under 
side of the draw above mean high water is 23 feet. 

The bridges over Water street and over the railroad 
tracks each consist of two spans of steel I-beams, with brick 
arches turned between the beams. The roadways of the 
fixed spans over the river and over Water street have granite 
block paving, and the sidewalks have asphalt wearing sur- 
faces. The roadway of the span over the railroad is paved 
with asphalt. The floorings of the draw, both for the road- 
way and sidewalks, have plank wearing surfaces. The entire 
structure is now in good condition.

This is an iron bridge, built by the Boston & Maine Rail- 
road Company in 1894, and is over the railroad location. 
The surface of the bridge is maintained by the city ; the 
remainder by the railroad company. The wheel-guard on 
the bridge is too low and narrow, the fences need repairing 
and painting, the sidewalk needs small repairs, and the 
northerly girders need painting ; otherwise the bridge is in 
good condition. 

Chelsea Bridge, North (over North Channel, Mystic River). 

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



18 City Document No. 15. 

the draw and draw foundations were built in 1895. The 
draw-way was widened to 60 feet in 1900, the draw founda- 
tion being enlarged, the draw lengthened, and the draw piers 
built. Ordinary repairs have been made ; the tops of some 
of the old piles have begun to decay ; the old fender-guards 
are in poor condition, and some of the sidewalk planking 
needs renewal ; otherwise the bridge is in good condition. 

Chelsea Bridge, South (over South Channel, Mystic Miver'). 

This is a pile bridge with an iron draw. The original 
bridge was built in 1802-3. The piles of the present bridge 
were driven and the draw was built in 1877. That part of 
the bridge above the girder caps was rebuilt at a higher 
grade, and the draw was raised in 1895. The upper part of 
the draw has been painted and ordinary repairs made. The 
fender-guards are in poor condition ; the top of the pier 
should be rebuilt ; the waterway should be repaired ; the 
woodwork on the sidewalks should be renewed ; two iron 
brackets and the latches should be repaired and reset on

Engineeking Department. . 19 

Commercial Point or Tenean Bridge (Dorchester^. 

This is a wooden pile bridge with a wooden leaf draw. 
The piles were driven in 1875. The westerly end of the 
north abutment was taken down and rebuilt; some of the 
caps, both leaves of the draw and all the woodwork above 
the caps that support the bridge were rebuilt last year; a 
few of the stringers outside the fence were not renewed. 
The bridge is in good condition. 

Commonwealth-avenue Bridge (in the Fens). 

This is an iron bridge, and was built in 1881-82. It is 
now 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. Only 
ordinary repairs have been made. Some of the fencing and 
sidewalk near the Boston end, part of the roadway flooring 
and the paving on the South Boston side of the draw are in 
very poor condition. The track circles are much worn, the 
fender-guards and wings on the waterway are in poor condi- 
tion. The draw should be provided with new tracks, the 
lower chord should be uncovered, examined, repaired if nec- 
essary, and be painted ; the centre of the bridge and part of 
the gutter and sidewalk should be uncovered, the poor 
timber and planking should be renewed, and the bridge 
repaved ; and repairs are needed on the cross-bracing, fender- 
guards, ends of draw and draw landings ; the roadway and 
sidewalk planking and four main piles need renewal. 

Cornwall-street Bridge (over Stony brook, West Roxbury). 

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

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

The present bridge was built in 1895-96. With the ex- 
ception of the plate girders on the outside lines of the bridge, 
and some special construction under the sidewalks, the su- 
perstructure is composed of twenty-inch steel beams filled 
between with brick arches and Portland cement concrete, on 
which is a wearing surface of Sicilian rock asphalt. The 
sheet lead on the lower flanges of the beams over the two 



20 City Document No. 15. 

tracks used for local traffic has been removed during the 
year. The cinders discharged with the exhaust from the 
locomotives had cut away the lead so badly in places that it 
was not deemed safe to allow it to remain longer in its 
ragged condition over these tracks. The paint on the flanges 
of these beams which had been protected by the lead was found 
to be in such excellent condition that there was no occasion 
for repainting. 

Cottage-street Foot-bridge (over flats, East Boston). 

This is a wooden pile bridge, built in 1889, for foot travel 
only. Repairs have been made on the fences, planking and 
braces. The bridge is in poor condition. The filling has 
been carried out 375 feet beside the southerly end of the 
bridge, and this length of bridge, which is in the worst con- 
dition, could be abandoned, and connection be made with the 
filled street. Some of the stringers should be renewed, the 
bridge should be replanked, the fences repaired and painted. 
Some of the piles have begun to decay, and the cross-bracing 
should be renewed where necessary. 

Dartmouth-street Bridges (over Boston ^ Albany B.R. and 
Providence Division, N. Y., N. H. ^ H. B.R.). 

The bridge over the Boston & Albany Railroad was built 
in 1878-79, and is maintained by the city. Very extensive 
changes were made in this bridge in 1899 by the railroad 
companies, necessitated by the new location of the tracks of 
the N. Y.,N. H. & H. R.R. leading to the South Station and 
the abandoning of the tracks connecting this road with the 
B. & A. R.R. The bridge is in good condition with the ex- 
ception of the lower planking. This should be renewed this 
year in order to maintain the bridge in a safe condition. 

The bridge over the tracks of the N. Y., N. H. & H. R.R. 
was built in 1899, and is maintained by the railroad company.

4-inch hard pine covered with a wearing surface of 2-inch 
spruce. The surface of the bridge is maintained by the city 
and the rest of the structure by the railroad company. It is 
in good condition. 



Engesteeelng Department. 21 

Dorcheste7'-sfreet Bridge (over Old Colony Division^ New 
Torhi New Saven ^ Hartford B.JR.^. 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1869. It is principally 
maintained by the railroad company, and was repaired and 
put in fair condition in 1893. The bridge is, however, too 
light a structure for the street-car traffic now passing over it, 
but as the railroad tracks are to be removed very soon and 
the bridge abandoned, it can be made to do service for a year 
or two longer if carefully looked after. The lower planking, 
should be patched at once. 

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 fences and roadway gates have been painted, 
the draw-piers have been repaired and general repairs have 
been made ; some new track is needed for the draw ; the rack 
should be realigned in order that the draw may be reversed ; 
the masonry piers need repointing. (See page 88.) 

Ellicott-arch Bridge (in Franklin ParTc). 

This is a semi-circular masonry arch of IT feet 6 inches 
span. It was built in 1889, and is maintained by the Park 
Department.

Boston and Cambridge bridges ; the city pays one-half the 
cost of maintenance. It is a wooden pile bridge, with a 
wooden leaf draw, and was originally built in 1850 ; the draw 
was rebuilt and the adjoining stringers renewed in 1891 ; the 
other woodwork above the piles was renewed and some piles 
on the Boston side were driven in 1896. The sidewalk on 
the Cambridge side has been repaired, and ordinary repairs 
made. Some of the stringers adjoining the draw-arms have 
begun to decay. 

The bridge should be painted ; one Samson post needs 
additional fastening; the curb irons on the Cambridge side 
need regulating, and the staging under the bridge on the 
Boston side needs strengthening.

draw, and was rebuilt in 1891-92. The trucks have been 
taken apart and cleaned ; the draw has a new deck of 4-inch 
spruce ; the tops of the floor -beams, portions of girders that 
were uncovered during repairs, and the machinery under the 
draw have been painted ; the Boston Elevated Railroad Com- 
pany has laid new rails on and adjacent to the draw, and 
general repairs have been made. The fence on the main 
bridge should be painted, the sidewalk resurfaced in part, 
the wharves and fender-guards repaired, and the middle 
rests for the draw reset. Some loose lumber has been 
caught in the piling, and should be removed; additional 
stops are needed for the draw, and a spare truck should be 
provided ; some of the spur-shoes have begun to decay, and 
should be refitted ; the irons on the waterway should be 
repaired. 

Fen Bridge (in the Fens). 

This bridge was rebuilt in 1891-93. It is in good condition. 

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

Harvard Bridge (from Boston to Cambridge^. 

This is an iron bridge, with an iron turntable draw, and 
was built in 1887-91. The bridge is in the care of two Com- 
missioners, one appointed from Boston and one from Cam- 
bridge, and the expense of maintenance is borne equally by 
each city. 

During the year the roadway of the fixed spans of the 
bridge has been repaired and paved with wooden blocks. 
New wooden stringers of sizes sufficient for the heaviest 
electric cars were laid by the Boston Elevated Railway Com- 
pany, and all other roadway stringers found to be decayed 
were replaced by sound timbers. 

New roadway planking of 3-inch thick hard pine was laid, 
and the entire surface of the roadway paved with hard-pine 
blocks 4 inches deep. The planking and paving blocks which 
were treated by the creo-resinate process were furnished and 
laid by the United States Wood Preserving Company of New 
York. 

The tops of the main girders of the bridge were well 
painted during the progress of the work. The sidewalks of 
the bridge are almost constantly under repair, and should 
be rebuilt in the near futare. The iron railings should 
be repainted. 

Harvard-street Bridge (over Midland Division, New York, 
New Haven ^ Hartford R.R., Dorchester^. 

The sidewalks are supported by the city, the roadway by

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; the sidewalks, draw landings, bracing 
on bents, roadway pavement and one of the fender-guards 
are in very poor condition ; the waterways are out of repair ; 
the foundation of the house is in poor condition. The bridge 
should be rebuilt. (See page 89.) 

Neponset Bridge (from Dorchester to Quiricg). 

The city maintains the part within its limits. The original 
structure was built in 1802, and the present one in 1877.

New Haven ^ Hartford R.R.^. 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1872. The lower phanking 
and stringers are very poor and should be renewed this season. 
The bridge should at the same time be thoroughly cleaned 
and pauited below the flooring. 

North Beacon-street Bridge (from Brighton to Watertown'). 

The city maintains the part within its limits. This is a 
wooden pile bridge with a wooden leaf draw. The original 
structure was built in 1822, and the present one in 1884. 
vThe draw fastenings have been repaired and the deck has 
been patched. As was reported last year, the bridge is in poor 
condition ; several of the draw arms, some of the piles, the 
deck planking, and the woodwork of the pier need renewal. 

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

The city maintains the part within its limits. This bridge 
was originally built in 1662, and was rebuilt, except the 
piling, in 1879; the draw was built in 1891. The bridge is 
in the care of the Commissioners for the Boston and Cam- 
bridge bridges ; the city pays one-half the cost of mainte- 
nance. The bridge has been redecked, 3-inch spruce being 
used on the draw and 4-inch plank on the main bridge ; a 
smajl amount of repairing has been done on the stringers and 
fence, and one pile has been spliced. The abutment, piling 
and fence are in poor condition ; the counterbalances need 
'additional rear strikers. This bridge should be replaced with 
a new and wider structure, more in keeping with the 
improvements recently made in the vicinity.

Shawmut-aveyiue Bridge (over Boston ^ Albany P.M. and 
Providence Division, N. Y., N. H. ^ H. R.R.). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1871, and although it was 
cleaned and painted in 1897, parts of it, particularly over the 
main tracks of the B. & A. R.R., are very rusty. The shelf 
angle seats over the main tracks are so badly eaten away by 
rust that the bridge should be stripped at once and some 
temporary means provided for supporting the stringers. It 
will be necessary to rebuild this bridge within the next two 
years if heavy street cars are to continue to run over it. 

Sixth-street Bridge (over Midland Division., Neio York, New 
Haven <f Hartford R.R.). 

The older portion of this bridge was built about 1891. 
During the past year the easterly abutment was removed and 
a new one built about 14 feet easterly ; the new portion of 
the bridge is stringered and planked, the adjoining ends of 
both portions are supported by a row of posts ; the fences 
have been rebuilt and painted. The bridge is in good con- 
dition.

Southampton-street Bridges {over South Bay Sluices'). 

These are wooden bridges, built in 1875, as temporary- 
structures. The easterly bridge needs three additional 
braces and some planking to retain the filling; the wing 
bulkheads are in poor condition, the main structure in fair 
condition. The westerly bridge is in poor condition; the 
upper, part of the piling is considerably rotten, and the 
northerly sidewalk needs renewal.

facings, built in 1891-92, and maintained by the Park De- 
partment. It is in good condition. 

Summer-street Bridges (over A, B^ and C streets). 

These bridges were built in connection with the abolition 
of the grade crossing on Congress street and were opened to 
travel in 1900. The bridge over A street is a steel deck- 
plate girder structure, with a paved roadway of granite 
blocks, and asphalt sidewalks. 

The bridge over B street is a through plate-girder struct- 
ure, with a paved roadway of granite blocks and asphalt 
sidewalks. During the past year a flight of iron stairs has 
been built from the northerly sidewalk to B street. 

The bridge over C street is a two-span steel-beam struct- 
ure, with brick and concrete arches turned between the 
beams ; the roadway is paved with granite blocks and the 
sidewalks with asphalt. 

All these bridges are in good condition.

track timbers have been repaired and ordinary repairs made. 
Some of the piles under the wharf supporting the draw- 
tender's house are broken ; the fender-guards are in poor con- 
dition ; the paving, planking on the Avaterway, the sidewalk 
near Lovejoy's Wharf, and one pile near the draw-way need 
repairing ; the deck of the draw and some of the stringers 
need renewal ; the landing shoes should be reset, and the 
curb should be realigned ; the sidewalk near the railroad 
tracks, city end, should be extended about twenty feet.

In 1893-94 the grade crossing of the Old Colony Railroad 
on this street was abolished, and an iron bridge built, extend- 
ing from the end of Dover-street bridge at the South Boston 
side of Fort Point channel to the easterly line of Foundry 
street. The surface is maintained by the city, the rest of 
the structure by the railroad company. The deck planking 
is in very poor condition, and should be renewed ; the plat- 
form over the middle girders should be replanked, and the 
bridge should be painted.

Boston end of the draw should be raised, and the centre 
taken out and adjusted ; the bearings should also be adjusted ; 
the angles of the up-stream pier and fender-guards are 
broken, and should be repaired, and scupper holes should be 
made in the flooring of the draw foundation inside the track 
circle. 



32 City Document No. 15. 

Winthrop Bridge Qfrom Breed's Island to Winthrop). 

This is a pile bridge without a draw. It was originally 
built in 1839 ; it was rebuilt in 1851, and was extensively 
repaired in 1870, and some of the piling was renewed last 
year. The abutment at the Winthrop end needs pinning up, 
as there has been some settlement; a few of the outside 
bolsters are not in good condition. Otherwise the bridge is 
in fair condition.

SURVEYING DIVISION. 



The work of the Surveying Division has consisted of making 
such surveys and plans as have been required by the several city 
departments ; also giving street lines and grades upon application 
of owners about to build upon public streets. 

The departments requiring the largest amount of service from 
this division being, as in former years, the Street Department 
and the Street Laying-Out Department, 

The Street Department, on account of the large amount of 
repair work performed, has made large demands upon this divi- 
sion. 

There has also been much new work which has required the 
marking of lines and grades of streets recently laid out. 

A new set of plans has been made for the construction of 
Columbia road, from Dorchester avenue to Marine park. 

Considerable work has been done on Blue Hill avenue at 
Mattapan. 

Plans have been made for the pur^^ose of revising the grades of 
streets affected by the chan,ge of location of the Providence 
Division of the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad, 
between Dartmouth street and the South Terminal. 

The abolition of the grade crossing at Charlestown, by the 
Boston and Maine Railroad and at Mattapan by the New Eng- 
land Railroad, have necessitated the revision of street grades, for 
which plans have been made. 

One hundred and twenty-one petitions to construct catch-basins 
have been received and reported upon to the Sewer Division. 

Seventy-six plans have been furnished the Sewer Division, 
showing proposed catch-basin locations, in addition to seventy- 
three plans of locations furnished at the request of the Street 
Commissioners. 

Two hundi'ed and fifteen plans were examined for the Permit 
Office, upon which the locations of proposed future catch-basins 
were shown. 

Four hundred and twenty- two catch-basin locations have been 
staked out, and duplicate sketches of the same sent to the Sewer 
Division. 

Two hundred and fifteen notices of contracts to lay artificial 
stone sidewalks were received and reported upon to the Paving 
Division. 



34 City Document No. 15. 

.In eighty-eight cases the Paving Division was notified that the 
edgestone should be reset. 

Twenty-nine petitions to make sidewalk openings were received 
and reported upon to the Paving Division. 

Seventy-five requests for edgestone were received, examined 
and reported upon to the Paving Division. 

The Street Department was furnished twenty-five plans for the 
purpose of making sidewalk assessments. 

The data was also furnished for sidewalk assessment in rela- 
tion to forty- two estates. 

The hues and grades of the following fifteen streets, for which 
the Street Commissioners were petitioned for authority to open 
as private ways, were examined and reported upon : 

Dunnell street^ West Roxbury. Baker street to Heldun street. 

Heldun street^ West Roxbury. Gardner street to Highland Ice 
Company railroad. 

Fiske Terrace^ Brighton. Southeast from Homes avenue.

Penhallow street, Dorchester. Mather street to Melville avenue. 

Soudan street extension, Dorchester. Sagamore street to Dor- 
chester avenue. 

Estimates of construction, land or grade damage were fur- 
nished the Street Commissioners in connection with forty-two 
streets. 

Two hundred and fifty-eight plans and profiles, representing a 
total length of nineteen and a quarter miles, showing 1,390 build- 
ings, property owners, names, established grades, areas of land 
taken, or to be taken, for street widenings or relocations, pubhc 
alleys, etc., were completed for the Street Laying-Out Depart- 
ment. 

Among the more important being an extension of Shawmut 
avenue to Washington street and Heath street, from Huntington 
avenue to South Huntington avenue at Roxbury ; Walter street,

from Centre street to South street and Gardner street, from 
Gardner street to High street, at West Roxbury. 

Plans have been made of eleven passageways for the purpose 
of laying them out as Public Alleys. 

Seventy-two plans have been made for the purpose of assess- 
ing benefits occasioned by the laying-out and construction of new 
streets. 

A plan showing the estates included in the territory bounded 
by "Washington street, Milk street, Atlantic avenue and Kneeland 
street, has been prepared for the purposes of assessing the bene- 
fits occasioned by the location of the South Terminal and reloca- 
tion and extension of Summer street and Atlantic avenue. 

Plans have been made for the Cemetery Commission of the 
Hawes Cemetery at South Boston and the Evergreen Cemetery 
at Brighton. 

The following plans of sites for new school-houses have been 
made for the Street Commissioners, upon request to purchase by 
the Schoolhouse Commission, viz., Horace street, corner of 
Byron street, at East Boston ; Huntington avenue, corner of Ken- 
wood road and Heath street, near Day street, at Roxbury ; West- 
ville street, between Head street and Bowdoin square and Colum- 
bia road, near Greenhalge street, at Dorchester ; and School 
street, between Washington street and Amory street, at West 
Roxbury. 

Plans of sites for other public buildings include a lot on 
Blossom street, Boston proper, for a ward-room ; and Columbia 
road, Dorchester, for a Municipal Building ; also a large addi- 
tion to the land occupied by the Boston Insane Asylum, on Can- 
terbury street, West Roxbury. 

In connection with the Surveying Division there have been 
2,325 titles examined, 1,899 deeds and 335 plans copied from 
the Registry of Deeds.

[B^ROM THE CITY ENGINEER'S REPORT TO THE 
WATER DEPARTMENT.] 



During the past year 18.9 miles of main pipe have been laid 
and 12.7 miles abandoned, making a total length in the system of 
719.6 miles. The following is some of the most important work 
done : 

The 30-inch H.S. main in Washington street, Dorchester, was 
extended from Talbot avenue to Walton street, a distance of 792 
feet. 

A 30-inch L. S. main and a 16-inch H. S. main were laid in 
Bowdoin street, from Beacon street to Ashburton place, after the 
grade of Bowdoin street had been lowered on account of the 
construction of the State House Park. 

The 24-inch H. S. main in Columbia road was connected be- 
tween Ceylon and Quincy streets, greatly re-enforcing the water 
supply in the H. S. districts of the northerly portion of Dorchester 
and of South Boston. 

Two 20-inch L. S. pipes were laid in Southampton street over 
the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad, to be connected 
at a later date with the 30-inch main when it is raised in the new 
street. 

Sixteen-inch mains were laid in Causeway, Lowell, Willard 
Spring and Allen streets, from Prince street to Charles street, 
and in Stamford street from Causeway street to Cambridge street, 
a total distance of 5,110 feet, connections being made with the 
30-inch L. S. main in Causeway street at Haverliill street and 
at Cambridge street ; the pipes relaid were old and in addition to 
being too small for present needs were, in many cases, dangerously 
weak. 

A 16-inch H. S. main, was laid in Blue Hill avenue, Roxbury, 
replacing an 8-inch main, from May wood street to Holburn 
street, a distance of 839 feet. 

A 16-inch L. S. main was laid in Mason street, Charlestown, 
from Front street to Bow street, replacing a 4-inch main. 

A 16-inch L. S. main, replacing a 6-inch main, was laid in 
Miller street, Charlestown, from Rutherford avenue to Main 
street, a distance of 675 feet, 

A 16-inch main was laid in Columbia road. South Boston, be- 
ween G street and Q street, a distance of 2,288 feet. 

The 16-inch main in Blue Hill avenue, Dorchester, was ex- 



ENGTNEERDfG DEPARTMENT, 83 

tended from Walkbill street to Collins street, a distance of 1,183 
feet. 

A large part of the work done during the year has been the re- 
placing of old mains with sizes that are adequate for present and 
estimated future needs ; this jjolicy has been consistently carried 
on for several years past, and the result has been a great improve- 
ment in the fire protection of the city. 

The only supply of South Boston east of Fort Point channel 
and north of West First street is from the low sei-vice through a 
single 30-inch main in D street ; this main should be extended 
across Fort Point channel at Congress street or Northern avenue, 
to afford a second main supply pipe in case of emergency. 

The high sei-vice should also be carried from the city proper 
into this territory, to supply adequate fire pipe and sprinkler ser- 
■s'ice. The main for this purpose would cross Fort Point channel 
in the same location as the 30 -inch low sers'ice, and would ulti- 
mately connect with the existing high service in the older portion 
of South Boston. The assessed valuation of buildings in this 
part of South Boston is S3, 712,500, an increase of $2,088,100 
in the past ten years. 

I recommend that the present siphons under Fort Point chan- 
nel at Dover street be widened to sixty feet at an early date.

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



Alfoed Steeet, WroENING. 

In May, 1901, plans were made for the widening of Alford 
street, north of Maiden bridge, by filling a strip twenty feet 
wide on the west side and protecting the slope with slope 
paving. 

Bennington Steeet. 

A contract for filling a part of Bennington street, East 
Boston, was awarded to Jones & Meehan, November 20, 

1899. Work under this contract was begun January 16, 

1900, and completed February 9, 1901. The total amount 
of filling furnished was 126,043 cubic yards. 

A second contract for furnishing and depositing additional 
filling in the vicinity of the bridge over the Boston, Revere 
Beach & Lynn R.R. was awarded to Jones & Meehan, March 
18, 1901, at the rate of sixty-three (63) cents per cubic yard 
measured in the cut. Work under this contract was begun 
March 19, 1901, and completed August 23, 1901, the total 
amount of filling furnished was 44,870 cubic yards. 

A temporary gravel roadway, a plank sidewalk, and a 
fence were constructed on the newly-filled part of Bennington 
street, between Leverett avenue and the Revere town line, 
about 1,330 feet in length. A contract for this work was 
awarded to Coleman Bros., July 10, 1901. Work under this 
contract was begun July 17, 1901, and completed August 
23, 1901, at a cost of 12,286.07. 

A contract for extending the abutments of the bridge on 
Bennington street (formerly Leyden-street bridge), over the 
Boston, Revere Beach & Lynn R.R., was awarded to John 



Engineering Department. 87 

Cashman, July 8, 1901. Work under this contract was 
begun August 3, 1901, and completed December 23, 1901, 
at a cost of $16,014.48. 

Broadway Bridge. 

Plans and specifications were made for repairing the 
up-stream end of the draw-pier, and a contract was made 
with William J. Lawler for doing the work. The work was 
done in March at a cost for contract work of $843, and 
consisted in driving and capping nineteen new oak piles, 
recapping one bent of piles, and building a new floor of 
stringers and plank for thirty feet. 

Brooks Street, Retaining Walls. 

Plans and specifications were prepared early in the year 
for building retaining walls on that part of Brooks street 
which is to be depressed so as to pass under the Boston & 
Albany Railroad. This depression is to occupy the central 
portion of the street for a width of 40 feet, and for a length 
of about 350 feet southerly from the railroad. The remain- 
ing width of the street on each side of the depressed portion 
is to be built at higher grades, and these two side roadways 
are to be connected at the ends adjoining the railroad by a 
bridge 35 feet wide over the sunken roadway. 

A contract was made on July 2 with John F. McBride 
and Jesse Moulton for building the retaining walls, and on 
November 22, with the American Bridge Company for build- 
ing the bridge superstructure. The work is not yet com- 
pleted. 

During the progress of the work a temporary foot-bridge 
has been maintained across the excavation for the central 
roadway. 

The sewer, water and gas pipes have been relocated and 
laid in the side roadways. 

Carleton Street, Retaining Wall. 

Plans and specifications were prepared for building a 
retaining wall along the westerly side line of Carleton street, 
adjoining the tracks of the Providence Division of the New 
York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad between Yarmouth 
and West Newton streets, and a contract was made with 
John Cashman for doing the work, dated October 19, 1901. 

Up to the date of this report the only work done has been 
the excavation of the trench for the foundation and the 
driving of a few piles. 



88 City Document No. 15. 



Columbia Road. 

The filling under the contract with Simon J. Donovan, 
dated October 25, 1898, is not yet completed, there having 
been deposited 123,044 cubic yards. 

The street work for the bridges over Old Colony avenue 
and the Plymouth Division of the New York, New Haven 
& Hartford Railroad, and over Shoreham street, is in place, 
but the floors of these bridges have not been finished. 

On March 12 a contract was made with John Cashman for 
building the abutments and pier for the bridge which is to 
carry Columbia road over Shoreham street, and also for build- 
ing a retaining wall on the southerly side of Mt. Vernon 
street where the grade of the latter is separated from that of 
Columbia road. This work is nearly finished. 

DOVEE-STKEET BkIDGE. 

The work of removing the old draw foundation and re- 
pairing the piers mentioned in the last report was completed 
by William J. Lawler in February at a cost of $3,629.87. 

All of the old draw foundation not being used in connec- 
tion with the water pipes was removed, and the remaining 
part was sheathed over. 

The piers (except the part built in 1894) were redecked, 
the stringers and caps found in poor condition were renewed, 
the water way of the up-stream pier was replanked and a 
new flight of stairs was built from the street to the pier. 

East Boston Ferries. 

South Ferry ^ JEast Boston Side. — Plans having been made 
and approved for a new head-house and other buildings, and 
a change in position of the drops, plans and specifications 
were prepared by this department for rebuilding the piers 
and wharves, and May 8, a contract was made with William 
J. Lawler for doing the work. A new middle pier was built, 
the outer piers were rebuilt in part, the drops were placed in 
new position, having new guide-piles and additions to the 
foundations; two new wharves were built, and the slips were 
dredged. The south roadway was rebuilt at a higher grade, 
using part of the old foundation. The work was completed 
December 13, at a cost of $19,975.35. 

The northerly drop foundation was raised at a cost of 
137.70. 

Lines and grades were given for building the coal elevator. 



Engineering Department. 89 

North Fer7'y^ Boston Side. — Specifications were made for 
renewing one pile in the head of each of the outer piers, the 
entire head and five other piles in the middle pier, and 
replanking 58 feet of the northerly face of the middle pier. 
The work was done by George Hayes & Co., and was 
completed July 11, at a cost of $1,986.71. 

Mount Washington-avenue Bridge, 

February 26 the steamer " Vizcaina " was stuck in the 
southerly draw-way of the bridge, and the capping of the 
bridge was cut away to release her. It being decided to 
widen the draw-way, plans were made for increasing its 
width from 42 feet 3 inches to 43 feet 9 inches ; the work 
was done by William J. Lawler at a cost of $1,900, and was 
completed April 6. 

Stairway from Suinevier-street Bridge to B Street. 

Plans were prepared for a flight of iron stairs leading from 
the bridge on Summer street, over B street, to the easterly 
sidewalk of the latter street, and a contract made with the 
New England Structural Company for building the same for 
the sum of $759. 

The foundations for the stairs were built by Joseph Ross, 
and the treads and landings were provided with safety treads 
furnished by the Universal Safety Tread Company. 

WiNTHROP Bridge. 

The work of renewing the piles damaged by the " Lim- 
noria" and making other repairs, mentioned in the last 
annual report, was completed March 13, 1901, by William 
L. Miller, contractor, at a cost for contract work of $1,990.22. 
Thirty-one new oak piles were driven, nine bents were 
recapped, the sidewalk was replanked, the northerly fence 
was rebuilt, and other miscellaneous work was done without 
closing the bridge to travel. 

Garbage Depot. 

An estimate and plans were made for establishing a 
garbage depot on Tenean street.

MISCELLANEOUS WORK AND CONSTRUCTION 

IN 1901. 



Atlantic Avenue Extension. 

On February 28, a contract was made with Joseph Ross for 
building a part of the northerly approach to the bridge over the 
tracks of the Boston Terminal Company. On June 6 a contract 
was made with Mr. Ross for a small addition to the work, to be 
done under the previous contract. The whole work under these 
contracts was completed on December o, at a cost of $40,990.42. 

The work consisted of building retaining walls and an abut- 
ment, and bacldilling the same with earth to the grade of the 
proposed street for the full width of the street, and for a distance 
southerly from Kneeland street of about 442 feet. From the 
abutment to point where the bridge over the tracks is to begin, a 
distance of 430 feet, foundations to Orade 15 were built for three 
longitudinal parallel walls ; these walls are intended for the support 
of a floor of steel beams and concrete or brick arches upon which 
will be laid the paving for the roadway and sidewalk. The walls 
are all supported on piles upon which there is a foundation of 
American cement concrete from Grade 5 to Grade 15. The walls 
built above the foundations are of granite ashlar masonry, capped 
with a cut granite coping. Considerable difficulty was found on 
this work in driving the pUes on account of the character of the 
material with which the land had been previously filled. 

On May 2, a contract was made with Joseph Ross for building 
that portion of the South Boston approach between the water 
and Foundry street. This work was completed, with the excep- 
tion of a httle pointing, on December 23, at a cost of $26,006. 
The work was of the same character as that on the solid psixt of 
the northerly approach, consisting of an abutment and retaining 
walls backfilled to the grade of the street. 

Nothing has been done as yet on either of these approaches 
towards laying the permanent paving. 

Land plans have been made showing the areas to be occupied 
by the piers on the land of the Boston Terminal Company.

Broadway Bridge Piers. 



See page 87. 



Broadway Bridge Rebuilding over Fort Point Channel. 

The first work done towards rebuilding this bridge was the 
building of a temporary bridge for foot travel. A contract was 
made with Miller & Ellis on June 1 for doing this work, which 
was finished on August 30, at a cost of $6,766.33. 

This bridge is entirely of wood; it is 15 feet wide, and con- 
sists of bents of piles 16 feet apart, except where longer spans 
are required at the crossing of the railroad tracks ; the piles 
are capped with 4-inch by 10-inch girder-caps ; stringers are of 
spruce and hard pine, and the floor is of 2-inch hard pine. 

The bridge extends from Foundry street, opposite Division 
street, across the land of the New York, New Haven & Hartford 
Railroad Company to the draw, and from the draw, on the north- 
erly side of the lb ridge and about ten feet away from it across 
Lehigh street, where it connects with the present street. The 
draw is maintained in a position diagonally with the hue of the 
street, so that it clears the sites of the proposed new draw land- 
ing-piers. The bridge starts at the grade of Foundry street, and 
rises to Grade 38.50, where it crosses the new location of the New 
York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad, thence falls to the grade 
of the draw, and from the draw falls to meet the grade of the 
street west of Lehigh street. 

The old bridge was closed to team and car traffic on September 
3, and the foot-bridge opened on September 7. 

The draw pier, a portion of which was in a dilapidated condi- 
tion, has been repaired, all portions which had not been recently 
rebuilt being entirely removed and replaced with new work. 
Much of the old work had been standing since the bridge was 
originally built in 1869. This work was done under a contract 
with George Hayes & Co., dated July 30, and was completed 
October 31, at a cost of $6,114.17. 

In order that the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad 
Company might not be delayed in building the road-bed on its new 
location, a portion of the old bridge, about 240 feet in length, was 
removed by A. A. Elston & Co. under a contract dated August 
19, the city receiving in payment from the contractor the sum of 
$525. 

On October 25 a contract was made with Patrick McGovern 
for building the permanent piers for the South Boston portion of 
the bridge, between the water and Foundry street. This work is 
now in progress.

City Hospital. 

A portion of the yard near the northerly entrance from Albany 
street was provided with drainage and surfaced with an asphalt 
roadway and artificial stone walks, under a contract with Simpson 
Brothers Corporation. The work was finished on September 9. 

On July 29, a contract was made with Joseph Ross for extend- 
ing the brick wall on the northerly line of Massachusetts avenue, 
westerly to Harrison avenue, and thence northerly on Harrison 
avenue to near the old building used for a Nurses' Home, and also 
for building drains and surfacing the grounds, drives and walks 
in the vicinity of the new Vose Building. This work was com- 
pleted on November 11, at a cost of $8,908.11. 

Portions of the old wall on Massachusetts avenue and Albany 
street which had settled out of line and grade were raised to 
grade and straightened.

Malden Bridge. 

This bridge, mentioned in the last annual report as under con- 
struction, is nearly completed. 

The bridge is 60 feet wide between fences for the greater part 
of its length, but is 67 feet 6 inches wide for a length of about 
160 feet on the Charlestown side. 

It is built of hard pine timber, supported by an oak pile foun- 
dation. There are two sidewalks, each 8 feet wide, covered with 
an asphalt compound on a base of coal-tar concrete. The road- 
way on the main bridge is 44 feet wide for the greater length, 
and 51 feet 6 inches in width for the remaining portion. At the 



ENGESrEERING DEPARTMENT. 99 

draw the roadway is divided into two parts, on account of a 
centre girder, each part being 19 feet 6 inches wide. 

The floor of the main bridge is covered with 6-inch hard pine, 
which was painted with t^o coats of Letteney's preservative 
compound ; it was then covered with four thicknesses of roofing 
felt, thoroughly mopped with pitch. This was then covered with 
a layer of coal-tar concrete, 1 inch in thickness, put on hot and 
thoroughly rolled. Upon this was laid the granite block paving 
in a bed of sand about 3 inches in depth, the joints being 
filled with pebbles, and run with hot paving road pitch. 

There are two draw piers and two wharves on the Charlestown 
side of the channel, and two fender-guards on the opposite side. 
There is one draw-way 50 feet wide, the sides of which and the 
faces of the piers along the waterway are planked vertically with 
4-inch hard pine. 

The piers and wharves are built of hard pine, the covering 
plank being o-inch kyanized spruce. The channel is spanned 
with one draw, 60 feet wide, of the retractile type, having thiee 
lines of girders. These girders are 23 feet on centres. There 
are two sidewalks on the draw, each 7 feet wide, supported by 
brackets on the outside of the girders. Each Une of girders is 
composed of two non-continuous plate-girder spans, one of which 
spans the channel, the other or rear span being supported on 
trucks running on tracks laid on the draw foundation. 

The contract for building the draw was awarded to the New 
England Structural Company, for 115,200, and their part of the 
work is completed. The contract for building the wooden pile 
bridge was awarded to William J. Lawler of Charlestown, for 
$66,079, and all but a small part of the down-stream pier is com- 
pleted. The ten trucks for the draw were built by the Coffin 
Valve Company, for $3,197.50. The motor and electrical work 
for operating the draw was installed by the General Electric Com- 
pany, for $862.91. The machinery was furnished by Miller & 
Shaw of Cambridge, for $.1,597.05. 

The bridge was opened to travel on November 23, 1901, and 
the removal of the temporary bridge was begun at once and it has 
been entirely removed. Plans have been made for a new draw- 
tender's house to be erected on the new wharf on the down- 
stream side of the bridge. The northerly abutment has been 
extended about 18^ feet and a retaining wall built about 49 feet 
long. 

Southampton-street Bridge. 

"Work was begun on October 21 on the erection of the steel 
superstructure of the bridge over the new location of the Old 
Colony Di\ision of the New York, New Haven & Hartford 
Railroad. The recent widening of this street made necessary 
alterations of the parapets of the abutments of the bridge. 
The work was in progress when winter began, and it was thought 
best to suspend operations until spring, when the work can be 
finished in a short time.

Voting Booths. 

Plans and specifications were made for building twenty voting 
booths for the Election Department ; they were built, under the 
supervision of this ofiice, by Alfred F. Kinney at a cost of 
$5,533.61. The work was done on the grounds of the Marcella- 
street Home, and a new gate to the grounds was built by CaMn 
Lamont. 

Winthrop Bridge. 
See page 89. 

Miscellaneous. 

Grades have been given for a driveway at Pierce Farm. 

A plan and estimate were made for grading the grounds 
around the Roger Wolcott School-house, on Morton and Norfolk 
streets, Dorchester. 

A plan and estimate have been made for extending Muddy 
river and Stony brook covered channels by a conduit along the 
embankment of Charles river, from Ashby street to a point below 
the proposed dam just above Leverett street.

APPENDIX K. 



Meridian Line. 

In 1870 an act was passed, by tlie Massachusetts Legislature requiring 
each land surveyor in the State at least once in every year to adjust 
and verify his compass by the meridian line established in the county 
wherein his surveys were to be made. 

A meridian was marked by stone monuments and a book of record 
kept by a custodian designated by the County Commissioners. 

The law compelling surveyors to test their compasses annually was 
modified in 1875, so that surveyors who did not use the compass in turn- 
ing angles were relieved from the penalty attaching to the violation of 
the original act. 

The meridian posts for the County of Suffolk were placed on the 
southerly portion of the "Parade Ground," on Boston Common. They 
are granite posts, three in number, placed 200 feet apart, are eighteen 
inches square at the base, one foot square at the top and eight feet 
long, being firmly set in a bed of concrete with their tops originally 
just below the surface of the ground. 

A stone curb was placed even with the surface of the ground over the 
top of each post, with a metallic composition cover. 

The surface of that part of the Common where the posts are set was 
raised several feet in 1897, the posts being protected by building a brick 
manhole around each stone. The posts being accessible by the removal 
of the manhole cover. 

As the cover and cap of the manholes are made of iron, it is now 
necessary to set up the compass in the production of the line marked 
by the monument to avoid local attraction. The point selected has 
been 290 feet north of the northerly stone. 

The following table gives the number of tests for each year with the 
average readings:
