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.

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.B. Freight 

Tracks). 

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. The lower planking is in 
very poor condition, and should be renewed this year, and the 
sidewalk planking put in good condition. When this work 
is done the floor beams should be painted. 

Allston Bridge (over the Boston $> Albany R.R., Brighton'). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1892. The ironwork 
needs painting, and some of the woodwork around the 
trusses should be renewed. 

Arborivay Bridge (over Stony brook, in 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- 
tained by the Park Department. The sidewalk planking has 
been renewed during the year. The bridge should be 
sheathed. 

Ashland-street Bridge (over Providence Division, New York, 
New Haven $> Hartford B.B., West Roxbury).

road company. It was lengthened on the Boston side in 
1895, and now the city maintains 75 feet of the northerly 
part. Additional hard pine floor beams and new 3-inch deck 
planking have been placed under the part of the bridge occu- 
pied by the Boston Elevated Railroad, and one of the fences 
has been painted. The fence owned by the city should be 
painted. 

Athens-street Bridge {over Midland Division, New York, New 
Haven <f* Hartford R.R.). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1874. The ironwork is 
very rusty; the deck planking and fences are in poor condi- 
tion. The bridge should be stripped and painted.

painted. 

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

This bridge was built in 1880-81, and had, up to 1901, a 
wooden floor for the roadway. At the latter date the 
wooden stringers and planking were removed, and twelve 
lines of 18-inch steel I-beam stringers put in. The new 
stringers and the old plate girders were then encased in Port- 
land cement concrete, strengthened with expanded metal. 
The roadway was paved with hard-pine blocks, treated by the 
creo-resinate process. The bridge is now in good condition. 

Beacon-street Bridge (over Boston $■ Albany R.RS). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1884-85, widened in 
1887-88, and the central roadway further widened in 1890 
for the convenience and at the expense of the Street Rail- 
way Company. 

The ironwork below the floor is very rusty and should be 
painted. The sidewalk planking is poor and the wooden 
facias should be repaired.

R.R.). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1889. The northerly side- 
walk has been rebuilt. The deck-plank and the painting are 
in poor condition. The street is now being widened and a 
new bridge has been built on the part of widening. When 
the new part is opened to travel the old bridge should be 
repaired. 

Berkeley-street Bridge (over Boston $ Albany R.R. and 
Providence Division, N. 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. It is now in 
good condition. 

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

Bemier-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 
Department.

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. A 
temporary foot-bridge was built in 1891 outside the lines of 
the street, but utilizing the old draw-span, to serve for foot 
travel during the construction of the new bridge. 

(See page 86 .)

maintenance ; the Boston side of the bridge is in poor con- 
dition. A few deck planks on the main bridge and draw 
have been renewed and the roadway sheathed, and the bridge 
has been painted ; the planking on the piers and waterway is 
in poor condition ; the fender-guard on the Cambridge side 
neads repairing ; the deck planking on the Boston side has 
been repaired in spots many times, and should be entirely 
renewed and additional stringers added ; the deck planking 
on the draw also needs renewal ; the sidewalk planking needs 
repairs ; one draw arm on the Cambridge side should be 
renewed ; both abutments need repairing ; new irons are 
needed on the waterway, and a boat should be provided. 

Cambridge-street Bridge (over Boston $ Maine and 
Boston $■ Albany Railroads, Charlestowii) . 

This is a steel bridge of four spans, built in 1901 by the 
Boston & Maine Railroad. The surface is maintained by 
the city, the remainder by the railroad company. The 
bridge should be painted : otherwise it is in good condition. 

Canal or Craigie's Bridge. 

This is a wooden pile bridge, with a wooden turn-table 
draw. The city pays one-half the cost of maintenance. 
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. On the Cambridge end the down-stream 
sidewalk was repaired, and on the Boston end a new sidewalk 
was rebuilt on the down-stream side, and the fender-guard 
on the Cambridge side of the channel, up-stream side of the 
bridge, was rebuilt for a short distance, and part of the 
bridge was repaired ; 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 
draw, track circle, and wharf need extensive repairs, and the 
bridge should be painted. 

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 Marine park 



16 City Document No. 15. 

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 mainland. A small amount of replanking 
has been done. Repairs are needed on the fence and plank- 
ing, 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 
roadway is in poor condition ; the bridge should be stripped, 
the upper part of the floor-beams should be cleaned and 
painted, and the woodwork renewed. 

Charlesgate Bridge (in the Fens, over Boston <f Albany M.R.). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1881-82, and is maintained 
by the Park Department. The sidewalk planking is poor 
and should be renewed during the year; otherwise the bridge 
is in good condition. 

Charlesgate Bridge (in the Fens, over Ipswich Street). 

This is a deck-plate girder bridge with a buckle-plate iloor. 
The roadway is paved with asphalt and the sidewalks with 
artificial stone. It is in a good condition. 

Charlestown Bridge (from Boston to Charlestown). 

This bridge was opened to public travel November 27, 1899, 
and superseded the old Charles River bridge, which was built 
in 1785-86. 

The present bridge over the river consists of ten spans of 
the deck-plate type, each 85 feet long, and a swing or turn- 
table draw 240 feet 6 inches long. 

The bridges over Water street and over the railroad tracks 
each consist of two span steel I-beams, with brick arches 
turned between the beams. The entire structure is in good 
condition. 

Chelsea Bridge (over Boston <f* Maine R.R.). 

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. About two hundred 



Engineering Department. 17 

feet of fencing has been rebuilt eight feet high. The wheel- 
guard is too low and narrow, the fences need repairing, and 
the bridge needs 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, 
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. The fence has been painted and 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 ; some of 
the sidewalk planking needs renewal, and many palings on 
the fence need straightening ; otherwise the bridge is in good 
condition. 

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

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. Ordinary repairs 
have been 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 re- 
newed; two iron brackets on the draw should be repaired, 
and several pieces of track should be renewed. 

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

This is a wooden pile bridge, with an iron swing draw ; 
the original bridge was built in 1834; was rebuilt in 1848, 
1873, and again in 1894-95. A new wheel for operating 
the adjusting screw should be provided, and the draw should 
be painted. The bridge is in good condition.

(Columbia Road Bridge (over Shoreham street). 
(See page 78.) 

Columbus-avenue Bridges (over Boston $ Albany R.R. and 
Providence Division, New York, New Haven §■ Hart- 
ford R.R.). 

The bridge over the Boston & Albany Railroad was built 
in 1876-77, and is maintained by the city. In 1899 the 
bridge was shortened 11 feet at its south end, and a pier 
built in place of the old south abutment. 

During the year the bottom flanges of the floor beams 
over the main tracks were strengthened by the addition of 
new angles wherever the section had been materially reduced 
by corrosion. 

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

Commercial Point or Tenean Bridge (Dorchester). 

This is a wooden pile bridge with a wooden leaf draw.

of the bridge was rebuilt in 1901. 

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 in 
good condition with the exception of the sidewalk planking 
which should be renewed. 

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. 

About 80 feet of sidewalk and fencing and the up-stream 
wing of the waterway have been rebuilt, and miscellaneous 
repairs made. The roadway planking, the stone paving, 
fender-guards, track circle, and one draw landing are in poor 
condition. The Secretary of War has ordered the draw-way 
to be widened from its present width of 43 feet 9 inches to 
50 feet by December 31, 1903. When this work is under- 
taken the bridge should be rebuilt.

Corniv all-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 
exception of the plate girders on the outside lines of the 
bridge, and some special construction under the sidewalks, 
the superstructure is composed of 20-inch steel beams 
filled between with brick arches and Portland cement con- 
crete, on which is a wearing surface of Sicilian rock asphalt. 
It is in good condition. 

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

This is a wooden pile bridge, built in 1889, for foot travel 
only. About 300 feet of the Boston end of this bridge has 
been removed and connection made to the adjoining street, 
which has been carried out this distance by filling. The 
entire planking was removed ; the stringers that were in poor 
condition were either renewed or re-enforced by additional 
stringers, and the bridge replanked, and some repairs were 
made on the cross-bracing. The bridge is in fair condition. 

Dartmouth-street Bridges (over Boston $f Albany R.R. and 
Providence Division, Neiv York, Neiv Haven $ Hart- 
ford R.R.y 

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. 

During the year new lower planking has been put on and 
some new stringers put in. Some of the sidewalk planking 
is thin, but otherwise the bridge is in good 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. 

Dorchester-avenue Bridge (over Old Colony Division, New 
York, New Haven $• Hartford R.R.). 

This is a steel bridge built in 1900 over the new location 
of the N. Y., N. H. & H. R.R. The surface of the bridge is 



20 City Document No. 15. 

maintained by the city and the rest of the structure by the 
railroad company. It is in good condition. 

Dorchester-street Bridge (over Old Colony Division, New 
York, New Haven $ 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 fair condition in 1893. The bridge is too light a 
structure for street car traffic, but as the railroad has 
abandoned its location at this point, and the bridge is to be 
removed shortly, it is probably safe for the length of time 
it will remain in service. 

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. 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. The draw binds on the Boston end during hot 
weather. Repairs are needed on the waterway, and the 
platform and the steps to the float need rebuilding ; other- 
wise the bridge is in good condition. 

Mlicott-arch Bridge (in Franklin Park). 

This is a semi-circular masonry arch of 17 feet 6 inchss 
span. It was built in 1889, and is maintained by the Park 
Department. 

Essex-street Bridge (from Brighton to Cambridge). 

This bridge is in the care of the Commissioners for the 
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 
of the Boston side were driven in 1896. 

The bridge has been painted and ordinary repairs made. 
Some of the stringers adjoining the draw-arms have begun to 
decay, and should be renewed ; the planking needs repairing ; 
one Samson post needs additional fastening; the curb irons 
on the Cambridge side need regulating, and the staging 



Engineering Department. 21 

under the bridge on the Boston side needs strengthening. 
Estimates have been made of the cost of putting the bridge 
in condition for two lines of street cars. 

Everett-street Bridge (over Boston $ Albany R.R., Brighton). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1891, by the Boston & 
Albany Railroad Company. The recommendation made in 
these reports for the past five years is renewed this year, that 
the ironwork above and below the floor be thoroughly 
cleaned and painted and the sidewalks repaired. 

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 draw, fences and 
house have been painted and general repairs made. The 
sidewalks should be resurfaced in part, the wharves and 
fender-guards repaired, and the landing shoes for the draw 
reset. 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 planking and 
irons on the waterway should be repaired. 

Fen Bridge (in the Fens). 

This bridge was built in 1891-93. It is in good con- 
dition. 

Ferdinand-street Bridge (over Boston <f Albany R.R.). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1892. In 1899 this bridge 
was shortened about three feet at its southerly end, and the 
old south abutment replaced by a brick pier. As reported 
last year the lower planking is in poor condition. 

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. 

Gold-street Bridge (over Midland Division, New York, New 
Haven $ Hartford R.R.). 

This bridge was built in 1895, replacing a foot-bridge 
which was built in 1890 ; the sidewalk planking should be 
renewed ; the girders should be painted ; the fences should be 
repaired and painted, and the walls need some repointing ; 
otherwise the bridge is in good condition. 



22 City Document No. 15. 

G-ranite Bridge {from Dorchester to Milton'). 

This is a wooden pile bridge, with a wooden leaf draw. 
The city maintains the part within its limits. The bridge 
was originally built in 1837. It is in poor condition, and 
should be rebuilt ; the abutment should be repaired ; the 
piles are much worn ; several of the stringers show con- 
siderable rot ; the planking on the draw is decaying, and the 
tops of the piers are very poor. 

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 of the fixed spans was repaired in 1901-02 
and a wooden block paving laid. The roadway of these 
spans is now in good condition, but that of the draw span is 
in very poor condition. The lower planking and stringers 
have not been renewed since the draw was built in 1891, 
and they are now very rotten. Unless a new deck is put on 
at once it will be necessary to have it carefully watched and 
repairs made as soon as signs of breaking through appear. 
The asphalt sidewalks, which have been reported for a 
number of years to be in very poor condition, have grown 
much worse, and should be no longer tolerated on a bridge 
having so much foot travel. 

As reported last year the fences should be cleaned and 
painted, as they are very rusty. The planking of the draw 
piers is very rotten and dangerous in places ; both piers 
should be replanked. 

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

The sidewalks are supported by the city, the roadway by 
the railroad; the brickwork under one of the walks needs 
repairing, and the stringers under the roadway should be 
renewed. 

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, in conse- 



Engineering Department. 23 

quence of changes in the grade of the avenue, the floor was 
entirely rebuilt and new girders added for supporting the 
water-pipes. The lower planking of spruce which was put 
in at that time has now become very rotten, and has broken 
through in a number of places during the past year. It is 
recommended that a new deck be put on this year and the 
girders cleaned and painted. 

Huntington-avenue Bridge (over Muddy River~). 

This is a semi-circular masonry arch of fifteen feet span. 
It was built in 1893, and is maintained by the Park Depart-

planking is thin, but otherwise the bridge is in good condi- 
tion. 

L-street Bridge (over Reserved Channel, South Boston). 

This is a wooden pile bridge, with an iron retractile draw. 
It was built in 1892. The fences have been painted ; general 
repairs have been made ; some of the piling in the fender- 
guard and under the 6-foot walk needs renewal ; the side- 
walks need patching, the roadway deck plank on the draw 
has begun to decay and needs renewal ; some caps on the 
pier and a few low-water girders on the pier and bridge have 
been somewhat damaged by vessels ; more riprap should be 
placed in front of the east abutment. 

* Lever ett Pond Foot-bridge (in Lever ett Park).

Massachusetts-avenue Bridge (over Boston $■ Albany R.R.). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1876. It was thoroughly 
repaired in 1893, with the exception of the wooden fences. 
These fences are now in very poor condition, and should be 
rebuilt, and the sidewalks should be resurfaced. 

Massachusetts-avenue Bridge (over Providence Division, New 
York, New Haven 8$- Hartford B.B.). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1876. The woodwork was 
renewed in 1901, and the ironwork cleaned and painted. 
The bridge is now in good condition. 

Mattapan Bridge (from Dorchester to Milton). 

The Metropolitan Park Commission acquired the site of 
the old bridge in February, 1901, the city having previously 
maintained the part within its limits. The old iron bridge 
was removed during the past year, and it has been replaced 
by a three-arch bridge, built of concrete and steel beams, with 
granite facing. The arches are semi-circular, two spans 
being 14 feet and one 50 feet; the bridge has one 56-ft. 
roadway and two 1 2-ft. sidewalks ; it was built by the com- 
mission, and is completed with the exception of surfacing 
the roadway. 

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 in 1884, excepting the draw, which was built in 



Engineering Department. 25 

1875-76. The chords of the draw were rebuilt in 1896 ; 
few repairs have been made ; The waterways are in poor 
condition ; some of the piles should be replaced ; the ribbons, 
caps, planking and irons need renewal in places ; the wharf 
should be redecked ; the fascias on the sidewalks are getting 
poor; the stringers and bulkhead at the Boston end of the 
channel need strengthening ; the draw should be furnished 
with some new rack ; the track is getting much worn ; one 
pile under the sidewalk should be spliced ; one of the main 
truss-rods is broken, and a new one should be furnished ; the 
pier is in poor condition. 

Milton Bridge (from Dorchester to Milton"). 

The city maintains the part within its limits. The original 
structure is very old. It was widened in 1871-72. The 
older part of this bridge was built of stone, and the widening 
is an iron structure on stone columns. The westerly sidewalk 
was rebuilt on new iron girders and floor beams in 1900. 
The fences have been painted, and some repairs made on one 
sidewalk. The bridge should be painted, and the sidewalk 
planking on the down-stream side of the bridge should be 
renewed in part; one of the cap-stones over the first water- 
way is cracked. 

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 ; the sidewalks, draw landings, roadway 
planking on draw, bracing on bents, roadway pavement, and 
the fender-guards are in very poor condition ; the waterways 
are out of repair ; the foundation of the house is in poor con- 
dition. 

The Secretary of War has ordered the drawway to be 
widened from 43 feet 7 inches to 50 feet by December 31, 
1903. If this bridge is to be kept open it should be rebuilt. 

Neponset Bridge (from Dorchester to Quincy). 

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. General repairs have been 



26 City Document No. 15. 

made, including planking and capsills on the up-stream pier. 
The up-stream draw-arm is bent and should be repaired ; the 
piers and fender-guards need extensive repairs ; the blocking, 
planking, stringers near the gudgeons and gears, and the 
bearing-plate at the abutment are in poor condition, and 
should be renewed. 

Neptune-road Bridge (over Boston, Revere Beach $ Lynn

New Haven <f Hartford R.R.~). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1872. During the past 
year new stringers were put in where needed and an entire 
new deck put on. The ironwork was also thoroughly 
cleaned and painted. The bridge is now in good condition 
for a structure of its age. 

Norfolk-street Bridge (over Midland Division, New York, 
New Haven $ Hartford R.R.}. 

This is a new through lattice girder bridge built by the 
railroad company under the decree of the Superior Court 
abolishing the grade crossings at Blue Hill avenue and Oak- 
land street, and was opened to public travel in 1902. 

It consists of two riveted lattice girders of 130 feet span 
and 22 feet high between centres of chords. The roadway 
is 34 feet wide in the clear, and there are two sidewalks 
each about 6 feet wide. The floor beams are built steel 
beams, ranging from 20 inches to 30 inches in depth, and 
the roadway stringers are 6-inch by 14-inch hard pine resting 
on angle seats. The roadway planking is in two courses, the 
lower being 3-inch hard pine and the upper 2-inch spruce. 
The sidewalk stringers are 4-inch by 12-inch hard pine and 
the planking 2-inch hard pine. 

The surface of the bridge is maintained by the city, and 
the rest of the structure by the railroad company. The 
bridge is in good condition, but the approaches, especially 
that at the north end of the bridge, have not been put in 
satisfactory condition for public travel.

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. 
A new deck of 4-inch spruce was laid on the bridge, and new 
stringers were added where needed between the abutment 
and the draw arms, and a few piles that had begun to decay 
were strengthened. The bridge is in poor condition; the 
sidewalk planking, the draw planking, three draw arms, and 
some of the adjoining stringers should be renewed ; the draw 
pier is in very poor condition, and the upper part should be 
rebuilt, and many of the piles in the bridge have begun to 
decay. 

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. New rails were put on the draw fence, and the bridge 
has been painted. The bridge is in poor condition, and 
should be rebuilt and replaced with a wider structure, more 
in keeping with the improvements recently made in the 
vicinity. 

Oakland-street Bridge (over Midland Division, New York, 
New Haven $ Hartford R.R.}. 

This is a new steel plate girder bridge built under the 
decree of the Superior Court abolishing the grade crossing at

B. <f A. R.R. in Charlestown). 

This bridge was built in 1900, and opened to travel Feb- 
ruary 2, 1901 ; it has two spans of wooden stringers and one 
of steel Pratt trusses. The surface is maintained by the city, 
the rest of the structure by the railroad companies. It 
should be painted.

Prison-Point Bridge (Jrom Charlestown to Cambridge) . 

This bridge was originally built in 1833, and the present 
structure was built in 1876-77. It is a wooden pile bridge, 
with an iron leaf draw. The bridge is in the care of the 
Commissioners for the Boston and Cambridge bridges ; the 
city pays one-half the cost of maintenance. The bridge is in 
poor condition, and repairs have been made only when abso- 
lutely needed, as the bridge will soon be replaced by a new 
structure; the Boston & Maine R.R. have begun to build a 
temporary bridge around this one, to be used while the new 
bridge is being built. 

Public Garden Foot-bridge. 

This is an iron bridge. It was built in 1867, and was 
thoroughly repaired in 1887. It is now in good condition. 

Scarboro" 1 Pond Foot-bridge (in Franklin Parle). 

This is an elliptical masonry arch of 40 feet span and 8 
feet 3 inches rise. It was built in 1893, and is maintained 
by the Park Department. 

Shaivmut-avenue Bridge (over Boston $ Albany R.R. and 
Providence Division, N. Y., iV. H. $- H. R.R.). 

This is an iron bridge, built in 1871. A thorough exami- 
nation of this bridge was made in March, 1902, which showed 
that the ironwork over the main tracks of the Boston 
& Albany Railroad was so badly eaten away that it was not 
deemed safe for the traffic coming on it. A special report 
was made to the Superintendent of Streets under date of* 
March 22, 1902, calling attention to the condition of this 
bridge and recommending that certain repairs be made at 
once. In accordance with this recommendation the flooring 
over the main tracks of the B. & A. R.R. was removed and 
the angle iron seats for the stringers were reinforced by 
timber blocking resting on the bottom flanges of the girders. 
New stringers were put in where needed and the lower plank- 
ing renewed. 

These repairs can be considered as only putting the bridge 
temporarily in a safe condition, and the recommendation 
made at that time is here renewed, " that the bridge should 
be rebuilt within the next two years." At the time these 
repairs were made the cast-iron parapet was removed from 
the girder on the westerly street line. This girder was 
found to be so badly rusted that it was deemed prudent to 



Engineering Department. 29 

reduce the load coming upon it by fencing off a portion of 
the sidewalk. The girder on the easterly street line was 
not in as bad condition, and its parapet was allowed to 
remain. 

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

These are wooden bridges built in 1875 as temporary struct- 
ures. The easterly bridge has had some small repairs ; the 
westerly bridge was opened to put in a new water pipe, and 
in connection with this work new sidewalk planking and a 
new deck of 4-inch spruce was laid on the northerly half, 
leaving the old sidewalk bulkhead ; the remaining plank, 
sidewalk bulkhead and roadway bulkheads are in poor condi- 
tion and should be renewed. The wing bulkheads of both 
bridges are in poor condition, and the roadway bulkheads 
on the easterly bridge are in rather poor condition, and need 
repairing. 

Southampton-street Bridge (over Old Colony Division, N. !F., 
N. E. £ H. R.R.). 
(See page 79.) 

Spring-street Bridge (from West Roxbury to Bedham). 

This is a stone bridge. The city maintains the part within 
its limits. It is in good condition. 

Stony-brook Bridge (in the Fens). 

This is an ornamental brick arched bridge, with stone 
facings, built in 1891-92, and maintained by the Park 
Department. 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. 



30 City Document No. 15. 

Summer-street Bridge (over Fort Point Channel'). 

This bridge was built in 1899-1900, in connection with 
the abolition of the grade crossing on Congress street. It is 
a four-span, deck-plate girder bridge, resting on masonry 
piers, with two retractile draws, over a 50-foot channel way. 
The roadway of the fixed spans has a granite block paving, 
and the sidewalks have asphalt wearing surfaces. The 
whole structure is in good condition. 

Summer-street Bridge (over New York, New Haven Sf 
Hartford Railroad Freight Tracks'). 

This bridge was built in 1900, in connection with the 
abolition of the grade crossing on Congress street, and is 
maintained by the city and the railroad company, the former 
maintaining the wearing surface and the latter maintaining 
the rest of the structure. It has four spans, consisting of 
three through trusses each, and has a granite-paved roadway 
and asphalt sidewalks. It is in good condition. 

Warren Bridge (from Boston to Charlestoivn). 

This is a wooden pile bridge, with a double retractile iron 
draw. The present structure was built in 1883-84. The 
fences and the upper part and sides of the draw have been 
painted ; new 4-inch spruce decking has been laid on the draw, 
and most of the stringers under it were renewed, and the 
tops of the floor beams painted, and general repairs made. 
Some of the piles under the wharf supporting the draw- 
tender's house are broken; the fender-guards are in poor 
condition ; the paving, planking on the waterway, the 
sidewalk near Love joy's Wharf, and one pile near the draw- 
way need repairing ; the landing shoes should be reset, and 
the curb at the draw should be realigned ; the sidewalk near 
the railroad tracks, cit} r end, should be extended about 20 feet. 

West Boston Temporary Bridge (from Boston to Cambridge). 

This bridge was built in 1898-99 to accommodate the 
travel using West Boston bridge till the Cambridge bridge 
should be built ; it is in care of the Commissioners for the 
Boston and Cambridge bridges ; the city pays one-half the 
cost of maintenance ; some new hinges have been furnished on 
the flaps and other general repairs made ; the deck planking 
has begun to decay, and needs considerable renewing ; the 
bolting at the easterly draw needs some repairing, and minor 
repairs are needed on the pier. 



Engineering Department. 31 

West Fourth-street Bridge {over Old Colony Division, New 
York, New Haven $■ Hartford B.M.). 

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. 

West Rutland-square Foot-bridge (over Providence Division, 
New York, New Haven $• Hartford M.R.~). 

This is an iron foot-bridge, built in 1882. It is now in 
good condition. 

Western-avenue Bridge (from Brighton to Cambridge'). 

The present bridge was built in 1879-80, and the draw in 
1891. It is in the care of the Commissioners for the Boston 
and Cambridge bridges, and the city pays one-half the cost 
of maintenance. The bridge has been painted, most of the 
down-stream pier has been replanked, many roadway plank 
on the Boston side have been renewed, and minor repairs 
made ; the piers and waterway need repairing ; the deck 
planking on the draw should be renewed ; the fences on the 
Boston side should be put in good condition ; some of the 
piles on the Boston side of the channel are in poor condi- 
tion, and will soon need renewal; the staging under the 
bridge should be repaired. 

Western-avenue Bridge (Brighton to- Watertown). 

The city maintains the part within its limits. This is a 
wooden pile bridge, with an iron draw, and was rebuilt in 
1892-93. Only minor repairs have been made; the Boston 
end of the draw should be raised ; the draw and its bearings 
should also be adjusted ; the planking on the piers and along the 
waterways should be repaired ; some of the spurshores are 
broken and should be refitted ; the deck planking on draw 
and main bridge needs renewal. 

Winthrop Bridge (from 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 



32 City Document No. 15. 

repaired in 1870. 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. 

Wood Island Park Foot-bridge. 

This is a steel foot-bridge, built in 1898-99, and connects 
Prescott street, East Boston, with Wood Island Park, span- 
ning the tracks of the Boston, Revere Beach & Lynn Rail- 
road. The walls need pointing and the bridge should be 
painted. 

Bridges ivholly Supported by Railroad Corporations. 

The highway bridges maintained by the several railroad 
companies are in good or fair condition, with the exceptions 
noted. Norfolk-street bridge, near Dorchester station, has 
been redecked with 3-inch hard pine plank; the trusses are 
old and out of line. A new deck is needed on Second street 
bridge, and repairs are needed on Broadway, Fourth, Silver 
and Washington street bridges over the Midland Division, 
N. Y., N. H. & H. R.R.

SURVEYING DIVISION. 



The Surveying Division has been engaged largely in doing 
such surveying as required by the several city departments. 

The Paving and Sewer Divisions of the Street Department 
have made more demands upon this division than the other 
branches of the city service. 

The surveys and plans for the Street Laying-Out Depart- 
ment represent a large share of the year's work. 

One hundred and fifty-one petitions, requesting that catch- 
basins should be constructed, were reported upon to the 
Sewer Division. 

Catch-basin locations were furnished the Sewer Division 
for 183 streets advertised to be regulated by the Superintend- 
ent of Streets. 

On request of the Sewer Division, sixty plans of streets, 
showing proposed locations of future catch-basins, were 
furnished. 

Catch-basin locations were furnished the Sewer Division, 
of fifty-nine streets, which it was proposed to lay out, widen, 
or extend. 

Four hundred and eighty-one catch-basins were staked out, 
and duplicate sketches, showing the locations and ties, were 
sent to the Sewer Division. 

Two hundred and twenty-nine plans of underground pipes, 
conduits, etc., were examined, and proposed future catch- 
basins located for the permit office. 

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

In eighty-three cases the Paving Division was notified that 
the existing edgestone should be reset, preparatory to the 
laying of artificial stone. 

Forty petitions to make sidewalk openings were received 
from the Paving Division and reported upon. 

Eighty-seven requests for edgestone were examined, and 
amount of curb required reported to the Paving Division. 



34 City Document No. 15. 

Grade heights were furnished engineers and architects for 
thirty-three estates. 

Twenty-four plans of streets were made for sidewalk 
assessments on request of the Paving Division. Data was 
also furnished the Paving Division for sidewalk assessments 
on eighteen estates. 

Estimates for grade, land and building damages and cost 
of construction were furnished the Street Commissioners on 
twenty-five streets.

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



Some of the most important work done during the past 
year is as follows : 

The 40-inch low service main in Brookline avenue was 
originally laid in 1859, and for about 1,800 feet, where im- 
bedded in soft marsh mud, had become corroded so as to be 
dangerously weak. For a distance of 1,370 feet southerly 
from Butler street it has been relaid ; the new location is in 
clean earth, entirely above the mud. It is intended to finish 
the work during the coming year. 

The 30-inch high service main in Washington street, 
Dorchester, was extended from Talbot avenue to Burt street, 
a distance of 1,515 feet, connection being made with the 
local distribution system at Rockwell street. About 1,000 feet 
of 30-inch low service main was laid in Southampton street 
where the grade Of the street was raised over the tracks of 
the N. Y., N. H. & H. R.R., and a short length of 30-inch 
low service main was laid in Southampton street across the 
second waterway west of the N. Y., N. H. & H. R.R., replac- 
ing a 2-4-inch spiral steel pipe which had failed. 

A 16-inch low service main was laid in Bedford street 
from Summer to Washington street. 

A 16-inch low service main was laid in Harrison avenue, 
from Northampton to Dudley street, replacing a 6-inch 
main. 

A 16-inch low service main was laid in Dorchester avenue 
from Second to A street, replacing a 6-inch main. 

A 16-inch low service main was laid in Columbia road 
from Douglass to Vale street, completing the 16-inch line 
on the southerly side of South Boston. 

Changes in and additions to various underground systems 
are continually being made, and the question of the safe 
maintenance of our water mains under difficulties is ever 
present ; much time has been spent during the year on 
account of work of this kind. Some of the larger changes 



TO City Document No. 15. 

in water mains were made necessary in the case of subway 
construction on State street and the grade crossings at Blue 
Hill avenue and Oakland street. 

Since 1896 a consistent policy has been followed of relay- 
ing mains too small for present demands made upon them 
for fire protection, and mains whose strength have been 
impaired by the soil in which they were laid ; the result has 
been that a very great improvement in the fire service of the 
city has been made. The notably weak places in the system 
have already been strengthened, but much work of this kind 
still remains to be done to adequately meet the demands of 
the immediate future. 

The following statement shows the relaying which has 
been done since 1896 in the City Proper and South End, 
exclusive of a large amount of work in other portions of the 
city: 

28,000 feet 16 inch, replacing 6 inch, 8 inch and 12 inch. 
60,500 " 12 " " 4 inch, 6 inch, 8 inch and 12 inch. 

16,100 " 10 " " 4 inch and 6 inch. 

23,400 " 8 " " 4 inch and 6 inch. 

20,288 " 6 " " 4 inch and 6 inch. 



148,288 feet, or 28.1 miles. 

The accompanying map, at end of report, shows the work 
done in this line, and also the general distribution system 
of this portion of the city. 

A break occurred in the 30-inch main on Tremont street 
at West Newton, under conditions shown in cut opposite. 

The following are the results of tests made to determine the 
holding power of caps on ends of pipe : The caps and spigot 
ends used were of standard B.W.W. design, except in the 
cases mentioned, where pipes were used without beads ; the 
lead joints were 2 inches by \ inch (unless otherwise stated), 
and were made to correspond as closely as possible to the 
actual practice of the Water Department. Pressure was 
supplied by a small hand force-pump.

74 City Document No. 15. 

A test was made to determine the strength of the new 
style of 12-inch gate which was designed in this office, and is 
manufactured in the machine shop of the Water Department. 
The composition plug (made of 40 parts copper, 3i parts tin, 
li parts zinc, i part lead) was first tested by bolting a " test 
ing " head or cap to one bell of the gate, seating the plug 
and applying pressure to the space between cap and plug ; 
the elastic limit of the composition was reached at a pres- 
sure between 525 and 550 pounds per square inch; at 725 
pounds per square inch a leak developed in the body of the 
gate and the test was discontinued. The deflection at 
centre of plug was measured for each 25 pounds increase 
of pressure. The high pressure noticeably dished or curved 
the centre web of plug, but no crack developed. 

The cast-iron shell was tested with the plug open and 
with testing heads on each bell securely tied together by 
steel rods ; the deflection of the shell for each 25 pounds 
increase of pressure was measured on each side separately at 
the centre of the flanges between body and bonnet of gate. 
At a pressure of 775 pounds per square inch a crack devel- 
oped in the flange of the body, but did not extend into the 
body proper ; at 850 pounds per square inch three cracks 
developed in the flanges and two in the body of gate, at the 
same time one entire side of the bonnet was blown out, flying 
across the room with considerable force, the water falling to 
the floor quietly. The deflections of the iron shell were 
uniform until fracture occurred. Previous to applying 
the high pressure water was allowed to run freely through the 
stuffing-box in order to expel the air, and once during 
the test it was necessary to tighten up the stuffing-box in 
order to prevent leakage. 

There are decided indications of danger from electrolytic 
action in the vicinity of the new power house of the Boston 
Elevated Railway Company on Commercial street, and, also, 
in the vicinity of their other power stations. However, dur- 
ing the past year, the only damage by electrolysis which has 
been discovered has been to a few service pipes. The elec- 
trical surveys that have been made have not shown the con- 
ditions to be more alarming than for the past few years. A 
large number of observations and tests of the condition of 
old mains have failed to discover any evidence of serious 
damage. In view of the fact that serious damage has been 
done during the past year on the Metropolitan System and 
to pipes in surrounding towns, it is surprising that more evi- 
dence of damage from electrolysis has not been found.

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



Brooks Street, Ward 25. 

The work of building the retaining walls on each side of 
the depressed portion of the street, under the contract with 
John F. McBride and Jesse Moulton, dated July 2, 1901, 
was completed on May 20, 1902, at a cost of $24,444.17. 

The American Bridge Company, under its contract dated 
November 22, 1901, completed the steel work for the bridge 
over the depressed roadway at the ends of the side roadways 
in April, for which it was paid $2,800. 

The concrete and asphalt floor of this bridge was laid by 
the Boston Asphalt Company, under a contract dated April 
28, 1902, at a cost of $750. The work was completed on 
May 13. 

Railings were built on the bridge and retaining walls by 
W. A. Snow & Co., under a contract dated April 5, 1902, at 
a cost of $1,277. The work was finished on August 2. 

Carleton Street, Retaining Wall. 

The work of 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 & Hart- 
ford Railroad, between Yarmouth and West Newton streets, 
has been prosecuted during the year, and the entire wall was 
completed about October 10, 1902. 

The work was done under a contract with John Cashman, 
dated October 19, 1901. 

The portion of the wall as built between Yarmouth street 
and Berwick park has a pile and concrete foundation, the 
exposed face of the foundation towards the railroad tracks 
being of granite. Above the foundation the wall is of brick 
masonry 12 inches thick, with pilasters 16 inches square 
every six feet. Where this wall supports any portion of the 
street it is backed up with Portland cement concrete. The 
foundation for the whole wall was designed and built of such 



78 City Document No. 15. 

dimensions that it will support a wall of sufficient thickness 
to maintain the street if it should ever be filled to the grade 
of the adjoining streets. The brick wall is capped with an 
artificial stone coping, and an artificial stone curb is built for 
the entire length of the wall. 

The portion of the wall between Berwick park and West 
Newton street is built of granite, and rests on a pile and 
concrete foundation. The wall has a granite coping, the 
back of which serves for the street curb. The wall for its 
entire length has a wooden fence supported by iron standards 
set in the granite or artificial stone coping. 

Columbia Road Bridges over Shoreham Street and 
N. Y., N. H. & H. R.R. 

The flooring and surfaces of the bridges have been built 
with the exception of the asphalt sidewalk on the bridge 
over the railroad ; this is under contract and will be laid 
early in the summer. 

The flooring of the bridge over Shoreham street consists of 
brick and concrete arches turned between steel beams. This 
work was done by W. H. Ellis under a contract dated August 
13, 1902, and cost, including the artificial stone sidewalks, 
$2,700. The roadway of this bridge is paved with brick, and 
was done under a contract with W. H. Ellis at a cost of 
$2.45 per square yard. 

The flooring of the bridge over the railroad is of hard pine, 
and was laid by the Cahill Construction Company under a 
contract dated July 23, 1902, for the sum of $3,906. This 
bridge was paved with brick by W. H. Ellis. 

The iron fences for both bridges were built by P. J. Dinn 
& Co. under a contract dated July 9, 1902, at a cost of $848. 

Columbia Road. 

The filling done under the contract with Simon J. Donovan 
dated October 25, 1898, was completed May 27. The total 
amount of filling deposited was 136,348 cubic yards at 46£ 
cents per cubic yard. 

Mead Street, Charlestown, Artificial Stone 

Steps, Etc. 

A flight of artificial stone steps was built in Mead street, 
between Russell street and Bunker Hill street. These steps 
start at a point about 67 feet east of Russell street at eleva- 



Engineering Department. 79 

tion 57.50, and extend 94.5 feet to elevation 102.00 (a total 
rise of 44.5 feet) to a point about 115 feet west of Bunker 
Hill street. There are 7 flights of 10 steps each and 6 
platforms 5 feet wide. The steps are 12 feet wide in the 
clear with buttresses 1.5 feet wide. An iron fence was built 
on each buttress with a hand rail in the centre of the steps. 
A wing wall was built on the northerly street line extending 
32.5 feet from the top; two end walls were built from the 
sides of the steps to the street lines, each 7.5 feet long. The 
contract for building these steps was awarded to the W. A. 
Murtfeldt Co. on June 7, 1902. Work under this contract 
was begun June 18, 1902, and completed October 22, 1902, 
at the contract price of $4,975. 

Southampton-street Bridge. 

All work in connection with this bridge, including the 
erection of the steel superstructure and the alteration of the 
parapet walls to conform to the surface of the street after it 
was widened, was finished early in July. 

Paving Wharf No. 2, Albany Street. 

Plans and specifications have been begun for the recon- 
struction of this wharf.

MISCELLANEOUS WORK AND CONSTRUCTION 

IN 1902. 



Atlantic Avenue Extension. 

On June 6 a contract was made with Patrick McGovern 
of Boston for building three masonry piers for that portion 
of the bridge which is to extend across the yard of the 
Boston Terminal Company. 

Work was begun on June 16, and completed on November 
18, at a cost of $21,275.33. While the piers themselves 
were of simple construction the work of building them was 
of especial difficulty owing to the proximity of the railroad 
tracks, which were in constant use ; this caused slow progress 
and considerable danger, and necessitated great caution. 
One man, a foreman for the contractor, was run over by a 
locomotive and died a few days later. There were no other 
accidents. 

The piers all have foundations of piles driven to a depth 
not less than 30 feet below City base and cut off at grade 5 ; 
upon these piles, and extending from grade 4 to within 
about 3.5 feet of the surface of the ground, the piers are of 
Portland cement concrete ; upon this were laid two courses 
of granite, the tops of each pier being in three parts and only 
a few inches above the ground ; these will support steel 
columns carrying the superstructure of the bridge. 

Pier One, the most westerly pier, is divided at the bottom 
into three parts, each 12 feet wide on the bottom, the outside 
ones 14 feet long and the centre one 16 feet long; the top 
of the concrete is in each case 6 feet by 8 feet, and upon this 
are placed two courses of granite each 2 feet high, the upper 
course being of dressed stone 4 feet square. 

Pier Two has a continuous foundation of piles and con- 
crete, the latter being 14 feet 6 inches by 82 feet on the bot- 
tom and narrowing to a width of 10 feet at grade 13. Above 
this grade the concrete is continued to grade 16.25 at each 
end, and in the middle of the pier, in the form of frustums 
of rectangular pyramids, with the tops 8 feet by 10 feet ; these 



86 City Document No. 15. 

are surmounted by stone masonry 4 feet in height, the cap- 
stone being a single stone of dressed granite 6 feet square. 

Pier Three is of the same general character as Pier Two, 
except that the bottom dimensions are 19 feet 6 inches by 72 
feet, a portion being omitted on the northwest corner, as the 
intercepting sewer crosses the railroad grounds at this point ; 
the top of the concrete is at grade 18.50, divided into three 
parts at the top as in Pier Two, and each part finished 
with two courses of granite, the capstones being 6 feet 
square. As the width of the bottom of the foundation of 
this pier necessitated its construction under the main tracks 
of the railroad, the contractor was obliged to build only one- 
half of the foundation at a time, the division being length- 
wise of the pier, and one track being out of service at a time. 
The dead ends of these tracks were used for the delivery of 
material, there being no space on the side of the pier avail- 
able. The excavation for the westerly half of the pier was 
made, the piles driven, the concrete brought to its finished 
grade, the trench back-filled, and the main track restored and 
put into service ; then the easterly half of the pier was built 
in the same way, and the stone masonry laid upon the 
whole. 

On October 20 a contract was made with W. H. Ellis of 
Boston for building the remaining piers for this bridge, all 
of which are in Fort Point channel. 

Work was begun on November 11, and is progressing 
favorably. 

Broadway Bridge over Fort Point Channel. 

The work done by Patrick McGovern, under his contract 
dated October 25, 1901, was completed on June 19, 1902, 
and the amount paid for the work was $26,341.97. 

This work consisted of the construction of all the masonry 
piers between the South Boston end of the bridge and the 
old location of the Old Colony Railroad. All the masonry is 
supported on piles, cut off at grade 6. 

From grade 5 to within about 3.5 below the surface of the 
ground, the foundations are of Portland cement concrete, 
above which the piers are of granite ashlar masonry, the 
bridge seat or capstones having their top surfaces pean- 
hammered. 

Pier One is in the centre of Foundry street, and has only 
4 feet in height of stone masonry, upon which will rest a 
steel trestle. 

Pier Two is on the west line of Foundry street ; the founda- 
tion is 70 feet long by 8 feet wide, the top of the concrete 



Engineering Department. 87 

being at grade 13 ; the top of the bridge seat is at grade 
26.28, and is 58 feet long by 4 feet 6 inches wide. 

Piers Three to Nine are to be of steel columns above the 
ground ; the concrete foundation is in three divisions, the outer 
ones being 8 feet squaie and the centre one 8 feet by 1 2 feet on 
the bottom ; each is capped by a stone 3 feet square. 

Pier Ten has a foundation 62 feet by 10 feet, the top of the 
concrete being at grade 13 ; the top of the granite masonry 
is at grade 35.55, the bridge seat course being 55 feet 6 
inches long and 4 feet 6 inches wide. 

Pier Eleven is 68 feet long by 8 feet wide on the bottom, and 
the foundation is continuous to grade 14, where it divides 
into three parts ; the top of the concrete in each of these 
divisions is at grade 17.50, and each is capped by granite 
masonry of 3 feet 6 inches in depth, the end capstones being 
3 feet by 6 feet, and the middle one 3 feet square ; the top 
of this pier, being between the main tracks of the railroad, is 
but a few inches above the ground. 

Pier Twelve is 66 feet long and 16 feet wide on the 
bottom; the top of the concrete is at grade 14 and the top 
of the bridge seat at grade 36.62, the latter being 55 feet 6 
inches long by 6 feet wide. 

The work had progressed on December 20, 1901, so that 
the railroad company was able to move their main tracks to 
the new location. 

The fender guard on the west side of the channel was 
rebuilt in June at a cost of $925. 

On May 29, 1902, a contract was made with William L. 
Miller for building all the masonry required between the 
water and the Boston end of the bridge. Work was begun 
on June 16, and is practically completed, the amount of the 
final payment being $24,763. 

A sea-wall was built on the Harbor Commissioners' line in 
extension of the wall north of the bridge ; this wall is 
returned on the south line of Broadway a sufficient distance 
for retaining the slope of the filling behind the wall from 
running into the channel. 

The concrete at the northerly end of the wall is carried 
down to grade — 4, and at the southerly end to grade — 12, 
to provide for the possible deepening, at some future time, of 
the channel in front of the adjoining property : the concrete 
rests upon piles. The top of the concrete is at grade 0, 
above which is ashlar masonry laid in cement mortar. The 
top of the wall is at grade 16. 

The piers all have pile foundations with the piles cut off 
at grade 6. Concrete is used from grade 5 to grade 13, 



88 City Document No. 15. 

above which is ashlar masonry. The cement used for all 
work was Portland cement. 

Pier Seventeen is 58 feet long and 14 feet wide on the 
bottom; the bridge seat 52 feet 6 inches long and 6 feet 
wide, with the top at grade 29.63. 

Pier Eighteen is 58 feet long and 12 feet wide on the 
bottom. The bridge seat is 52 feet 6 inches long and 6 feet 
wide, with the top at grade 27.52. 

Pier Nineteen has the same dimensions as Pier Eighteen, 
except that the grade of the top is 25.40. 

Pier Twenty is 62 feet long and 10 feet wide on the bottom. 
The bridge seat is at grade 23.28, and is 60 feet long and 6 
feet wide. On the westerly side of the bridge seat a wall 2 
feet in thickness is carried up to grade 30.33 for the main 
portion of the pier, and grade 32.14 under the northerly side- 
walk for supporting the lighter superstructure over Lehigh 
street. 

Pier Twenty-one is 60 feet 8 inches long and 6 feet wide 
on the bottom. The granite masonry is only 3 feet high, 3 feet 
wide and 53 feet 2 inches long. This pier is in the centre 
of Lehigh street. 

The top of the abutment on Lehigh street was reconstructed 
to conform to the new grade of the bridge. 

In addition to the work done under the contract, the fol- 
lowing was done : 

The pier in Lehigh street having cut off the drainage 
from two catch-basins, new drains were laid at a cost of 
$215.70. 

A temporary foot-bridge was built from the Lehigh-street 
abutment to the entrance to the factory on the easterly corner 
of Broadway and Lehigh street at a cost of $350. 

A temporary fence closing Lehigh street on the southerly 
line of Broadway was built at a cost of $171.17. 

A foundation for a proposed fire wall on the southerly side 
of Broadway adjoining the wooden wharf was constructed at 
a cost of $594.47. 

The old masonry of the Lehigh-street abutment was re- 
pointed, costing $87.30. 

On August 28 a contract was made with Holbrook, Cabot 
& Rollins for building the three remaining piers of the 
bridge. But little work has been done as yet. 

On October 29 a contract was made with the Boston 
Bridge Works for constructing the steel work required for 
the fixed spans. No work has been done on the ground 
under this contract.

Deer Island Steamboat Wharf. 

Plans and specifications were made for repairing this 
wharf at the request of the Penal Institutions Commissioner, 
who made a contract January 20, 1903, with Benjamin 
Young for doing the work ; the contract sums were in items, 
the total cost estimated to be $4,704. 



East Boston Ferries. 
See page 79. 

Long Island Wharf. 

A plan and specifications were made for the Pauper Insti- 
tutions Department for building an addition to the easterly- 
wharf at Long Island. Bids for doing the work were 
received, and January 19, 1903, a contract was made with 
W. H. Ellis for doing the work for $7,458. 

Plans and specifications have been begun for a coal shed 
to be built on the wharf. 

Malden Bridge. 

The rebuilding of this bridge by Mr. W. J. Lawler, men- 
tioned in the last report as nearly finished, was completed in 
April; the cost of the contract work was $66,010.30. 

A contract was made with Mr. William T. Eaton, March 
20, for building a drawtender's house on the wharf under 
plans made by this department ; it was completed about 
August 25, at a cost of $2,218.01. The heating apparatus 
was installed by Jngalls & Kendricken at a cost of $355, and 
the house was furnished. 

Oakland Street. 

Under the decree of the Superior Court abolishing the 
grade crossing on Oakland street the city was required to 
" build the roadway or surface of the several streets, including 
sidewalks, curbs, gutters and catch-basins, and drains for sur- 
face water." The other work on the streets required to be 
done by the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad Com- 
pany had advanced so far that a contract was made by the 
city with Thomas F. Welch, dated September 11, 1902, for 
building a Telford macadam roadway on Oakland street 
and gravel roadways on the private ways leading into that 
street. The roadway north of the street railway tracks 
and one sidewalk has been completed and this portion has 



90 City Document No. 15. 



been opened to travel. The contract calls for the completion 
of the entire work on or before June 15, 1903. 

Paving Wharf No. 2, Roxbury Canal. 
See page 79. 

Rainsford Island Wharf. 

Plans and specifications for building an addition to the 
wharf, and erecting a coal shed thereon, and for building a 
drop, were made for the Children's Institutions Department. 
The work will soon be advertised. 

Parental School, West Roxbury. 

At the request of the Children's Institution Department 
plans and specifications have been prepared for a battery 
of two boilers at the Parental School for heating and electric 
lighting purposes. Plans and specifications were also pre- 
pared for the necessary settings and pile foundations for 
these boilers. 

A contract was made with the Hodge Boiler Works for 
one of these boilers for the sum of $1,072, and the boiler has 
been delivered. A contract was made with John W. Durham 
& Co., dated October 31, 1902, for putting in the foundations 
for the two boilers and for the brick setting of the boiler 
already delivered. The work under this contract is nearly 
completed. 

Miscellaneous. 

Several preliminary studies, plans and estimates have been 
made for the abolishment of the grade crossings on Dudley 
and Bird streets at the Midland Division of the New York, 
New Haven & Hartford Railroad. 

Plans and estimates have been made for a conduit along 
Charles river from Ashby street to near Craigie's bridge ; for 
a tunnel under Bunker Hill, between Main and Medford 
streets ; for a public boat landing at Chelsea bridge ; for 
drainage of a portion of Mount Hope Cemetery, and for 
grading around the Roger Wolcott School-house.

A very fine imprint in a volume of 24 maps and charts by John Thornton, bydro-

Fourteen maps bear Thornton's name. The others are similar in 6ize and work-

Fisher at the Postern on Tower hill and John Thornton at the

" At the time this edition was printed the plate was very much worn, thus showing 
that the date of the above plan must be earlier than 1689." The soundings agree with 
those on Southake, 1694 (in British Museum). 

This copy of the Pilot belonged to Nathaniel Green, Boston, in 1696, and was sold to 
Samuel Whitney in 1706 for 3s. 6d., which, as he truly adds, was " money .Littell 
aNough."

APPENDIX J. 



Meridian Line. 

In 1870 an act was passed by the 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 :
