ANNUAL REPORT 

OF THE 

PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT 

FOR THE 
YEAR ENDING DECEMBER 31, 1928. 



Boston, January 1, 1929. 

Hon. ^Malcolm E. Nichols, 
Mayor of Boston. 
Dear Sir, — In compliance with the Revised Ordi- 
nances, the annual report of the operations and expenses 
of the Pubhc Works Department for the year ending 
December 31, 1928, is respectfully submitted. The 
Public Works Department, created by Ordinances 1910, 
chapter 9, now chapter 27 of the Revised Ordinances of 
1925, was formed by consohdating the Engineering, 
Water and Street Departments. 

Organization. 

The department is composed of six main divisions, 
viz. : 

Central Office. — The Central Office is composed of 
the accounting force of the entire department under the 
charge of the secretary and chief clerk. 



2 City Document No. 24. 

Bridge and Ferry Division. — This division, under a 
division engineer, has the charge and care of all bridges 
used as highways which are in whole, or in part, under 
the control of the city; the care and management of the 
ferries owned by the city, including boats, slips, drops 
and buildings. 

Note. — The Boston and Cambridge Division, so- 
called, is not, strictly speaking, a division of the Public 
Works Department, as this work is in charge of a 
committee of two, one member appointed by the 
Mayor of Boston and the other by the Mayor of Cam- 
bridge, under the provisions of chapter 412 of the Acts 
of 1904; but because of the fact that the present Com- 
missioner of Public Works is the Boston member of 
this commission and also because one half of the expense 
of this commission is defrayed by the Bridge Service, 
it is in this report treated as a division of this depart- 
ment. 

Highway Division. — • This division, under a division 
engineer, has the care of the construction, reconstruc- 
tion and maintenance of roadways and sidewalks, and 
the care of lamps and the hghting of streets, parks and 
alleys. 

Sanitary Division. — This division, under a division 
engineer, has charge of the collection and removal of 
ashes, garbage and refuse, street cleaning and the oiling 
and flushing of streets. 

Sewer Division. — This division, under a division 
engineer, has charge of the construction of sewers, 
catch-basins and waterways. 

Water Division. — This division, under a division 
engineer, has the care of water pipes, installation of 
meters, water service, laying and relaying of water 
mains and the high pressure fire service. 

General. 
The principal activities of the Bridge Service during 
the past year have been the widening of the Ashland 



Public Works Department. 3 

Street Bridge over the New York, New Haven & 
Hartford Railroad, and the rebuilding of the Columbus 
Avenue Bridge over the New York, New Haven & 
Hartford Railroad. 

The much discussed rebuilding of the Congress 
Street Bridge over Fort Point Channel is finally assum- 
ing a definite status. Plans are about ready for 
advertising for bids to extend the tunnel for the water 
pipes. The contract will be let early in 1929, and the 
contract for the bridge will follow the completion of 
the tunnel. 

The department is much concerned over the condition 
of the Chelsea North Bridge. The structure is gradually 
deteriorating and should be replaced with a more 
permanent and rigid structure. 

A contract was let for the rebuilding of the River 
Street Bridge to conform to the widening of the street, 
but due to legal informalities, the work was not started. 
It is expected that these matters will soon be adjusted 
and the work completed without further delay. 

Surveys of the Albany Street Bridge over the 
passenger tracks of the Boston & Albany Railroad 
and Shawmut Avenue Bridge over the tracks of the 
Boston & Albany and New York, New Haven & Hart- 
ford Railroads show conditions that call for immediate 
attention. 

In the Ferry Service there are two old wooden 
boats which are not equal to the traffic and should be 
replaced with steel boats; and steel landing bridges 
should be substituted for the present wooden approaches. 

Highway Division. — ■ Fifty-four streets were laid out 
by the Board of Street Commissioners, of which twenty- 
four were constructed this year, together with twenty- 
seven of the streets laid out in 1927. 

An improvement of great importance was the widen- 
ing and construction of Sullivan square, Charlestown. 
This location is a very congested area, which has been 
greatly relieved by the reconstruction. 



4 City Document No. 24. 

The following are some of the important streets 
reconstructed from the appropriation for repair and 
reconstruction of streets: 

D street, South Boston, West First street to Dor- 
chester avenue. 

Border street. East Boston, Central square to Condor 
street. 

Cambridge street, Charlestown, Sever street to Somer- 
ville line. 

Cambridge street, Brighton, Charles river to Harvard 
avenue. 

Boylston street, Roxbury, Ipswich street to Brookline 
avenue. 

Heath street, Roxbury, Columbus avenue to South 
Huntington avenue. 

Longwood avenue, Roxbury, Brookline avenue to 
Riverway. 

Hanover street, city proper, Washington street to 
Commercial street. 

Harrison avenue, city proper, Dover street to East 
Newton street. 

Providence street, city proper, Arhngton street to 
Church street. 

The department force has continued the erection 
of street signs on the most important thoroughfares of 
Dorchester, South Boston, Roxbury, West Roxbury, 
East Boston. 

Lighting Service. — One thousand, one hundred thirty- 
two street lamps of various types were installed during 
the year and 759 discontinued, including the sub- 
stitution of 570 Mazda lamps for magnetite arcs. 

At the close of the year we had 22,041 street lamps 
in operation, comprising 5,634 arcs, 6,338 incandescents, 
9,881 single mantle gas lamps and 188 single mantle 
fire alarm gas lamps. 

Sanitary Division. — In addition to the upkeep and 



Public Works Department. 5 

maintenance of the equipment, sev^eral new trucks have 
been purchased, and also pick up sweepers and collecto 
sanitary bodies. 

The snow storms were met with an efficient snow 
fighting force of plows, tractors and trucks opening the 
streets and removing the snow without delay. 

Street flushing has been general over the city this 
year, the flushers being assigned to all sections, which 
has been very favorably commented upon by the 
citizens. Six city and six contract flushers were 
employed during the summer and fall. 

A problem of importance is presenting itself for 
solution in the disposition of old automobile bodies 
which are abandoned in all sections of the city. It 
is assuming such proportions as to be a menace to travel 
and it has become necessary for the city forces to remove 
them from the public streets to prevent them being an 
obstruction to travel. They are abandoned on our 
streets mostly during the night, and not being able to 
estabhsh ownership, their removal devolves upon the 
city forces; the practice is assuming such proportions 
that drastic measures will be necessary to prohibit it. 

Sewer Division. — The laying out of new streets by 
the Board of Street Commissioners and property 
development in the outlying sections have provided an 
excess of work for this division, resulting in the building 
of twenty-one miles of sewers and 678 catch-basins. 

The petitions for sanitary sewers and surface drains 
result in a large amount of detail work preparing plans 
and estimates, to determine the extent of the work that 
can be considered within the limits of the appropri- 
ation. 

The construction of the Porter street outlet in East 
Boston is progressing rapidly and will be completed 
well within the time Hmit. 

There has been considerable agitation relative to 
the storm water overflows at Savin Hill Beach. After 
several hearings an appropriation of $450,000 outside 



6 City Document No. 24. 

the debt limit was provided. Plans are in preparation 
and construction will begin the coming season. 

Water Division. — During the year the activities 
of the Metropolitan District Commission in letting 
contracts for shafts and tunnels to provide additional 
water supply for the Metropolitan District made it 
necessary to increase the water rates, in order that the 
City of Boston might be able to meet the increased 
assessment levied by the Metropolitan District Com- 
mission to cover the interest and sinking fund require- 
ments of the loan provided for that purpose. The 
increased water rates went into effect July 1, 1928. 

Continued development of property and new street 
construction required the laying of over eight miles 
of water mains in the outlying sections, twenty-two 
contracts having been awarded for that purpose. 

Over 150,000 linear feet of 4-inch and 6-inch water 
pipe laid over fifty years was relaid with 8-inch and 
12-inch pipe, improving the fire protection by furnish- 
ing water in quantity as may be needed. 

Complying with the legislative act of 1907, all 
water services have been metered. On December 31, 
1928, the total number of services metered was 96,464, 
— there remaining about 500 services to municipal 
property to meter. 



Appropriations. 

The money assigned for the maintenance work of the 
Public Works Department during the year 1928 was 
derived from the income of the city raised by taxation. 
In December, 1927, the department estimates were 
submitted to the Mayor, in segregated form, who made 
such allowance for each item in the budget as he con- 
sidered necessary and submitted them to the City 
Council. The total maintenance appropriations as 
passed by the City Council and approved by the Mayor

REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF 
THE BRIDGE AND FERRY DIVISION. 



Boston-, January 1, 1929. 

AIr. James H. Sullivan, 

C ommissioner of Public Works. 

Dear Sir, — I respectfully submit the following report 
of the income, expenditures and operation of the Bridge 
and Ferry Division for the year ending December 31, 
1928. The expenditures of the division in the regular 
maintenance appropriations of the department were 
$1,024,944.70. Under a number of special appropria- 
tions $338,436.28 were expended, making the total 
expenditure for the year $1,363,380.98. 

The more important works undertaken during the 
past year in the Bridge Service were the widening of 
Ashland Street Bridge, over the New York, New Haven 
& Hartford Railroad, and the rebuilding of Columbus 
Avenue Bridge, over the New York, New Haven & 
Hartford Railroad. 

As noted in the reports for some years past. Congress 
Street Bridge is in very bad condition and should be 
rebuilt at once. Chapter 157 of the Acts 1926 author- 
ized the borrowing of $800,000 outside the debt limit 
for this work and the act has been accepted by the city. 

The pile approaches to the draw span of Chelsea 
Bridge over the North channel of the Mystic river are 
steadily deteriorating and should be rebuilt, preferably 
with a steel superstructure on masonry piers. 

In connection with the widening of River street, a 
contract was let for the rebuilding of the bridge and its 
approaches but owing to legal technicalities the work has 
been delayed. This trouble should be remedied as 
soon as possible and the work of reconstruction carried 
forward. 

In connection with the widening of Morton street, an 
appropriation should be made for the widening of the 
bridge over the New York, New Haven & Hartford 
Railroad. 



42 City Document No. 24. 

Albany Street Bridge, over the passenger tracks of the 
Boston & Albany Railroad and Shawmut Avenue 
Bridge, over the tracks of the New York, New Haven 
& Hartford Railroad and the Boston & Albany Railroad, 
are both deteriorating from rapid corrosion, and should 
be rebuilt. 

In the Ferry Service two new boats should be pro- 
vided in place of the old wooden vessels, which are 
unfit for traffic and the two old wooden ferry bridges 
should also be replaced by modern electrically operated 
steel bridges. 

Ashland Street Bridge. 

August 22, 1928, a contract was approved with the 
A. G. Tomasello and Son Company for the widening 
of this bridge. The bridge is of deck plate girder 
type with slab floor and granite block paving. The 
northerly side was widened 4 feet and the southerly 
side 6 feet. The abutments were extended to accom- 
modate the widening and a retaining wall was built 
from the parapet on the northeasterly side to the 
corner at Hyde Park avenue. Water, gas and other 
services were relocated on the bridge. 

The estimated cost based on the contractor's bid is 
$25,801. The work will be completed early in 1929. 

Chelsea Bridge South. 

January 20, 1929, a contract was approved with the 
Progressive Iron Works, Inc., to fabricate and erect 
four roadway gates with bumper posts, latches, counter- 
weights at this bridge. 

The work was completed March 16, 1928, at a cost of 
$2,975. 

Columbus Avenue Bridge, Over Boston & Albany 
Railroad. 

February 27, 1928, a contract was approved with 
J. A. Singarella for rebuilding this bridge; a new steel 
and concrete superstructure was built on the existing 
abutments and pier replacing the old superstructure 
which was in bad condition due to corrosion. The old 
pipe bridge was removed and the pipes relocated on the 
new bridge. 

The new bridge is of through plate girder type with 
two roadways and two sidewalks. 



Public Works Department. 43 

The roadway is of reinforced concrete slab construc- 
tion, waterproofed, with granite block paving. The 
sidewalks are granolithic. 

All steel below the floor is covered with concrete and 
protected over the center line of railroad tracks by 
cast-iron blast plates. 

A clearance of 15.40 feet between the under surface 
of the bridge and the top of rail was provided. 

The work was completed August 28, 1928, at a contract 
cost of $59,775.55. 

Cottage Farm Bridge at Commonwealth Avenue, 
Over Boston & Albamj Railroad. 

A contract was approved May 14, 1928, with Maurice 
M. Devine for repairing this bridge. 

All loose concrete on the under side of the jack arches 
and I-beams of the bridge was removed. Steel rein- 
forcing rods were then placed on the cleaned surfaces 
of the I-beams and the whole surface of the ceiling 
covered with gunite about one inch in thickness. The 
work under this contract was completed July 25, 1928, 
at a cost of $4,832.90. August 29 a second contract 
was approved with Maurice M. Devine for completing 
this work as it had been found that more area of the 
ceiling needed repairs than had been anticipated. The 
work under this second contract was completed Septem- 
ber 30 at a cost of $4,887.25. 

This work was done under the supervision of this 
division for the Park Department. 

Dorchester Avenue Bridge, Over Fort Point 
Channel. 
The C. & R. Construction Company was awarded a 
contract for repairing the fender pier, wharves and draw 
span supports of this bridge. New rails, ties and track 
stringers were provided where necessary on the draw 
foundations and both retractile draws adjusted to line 
and grade. This work was completed October 6, 1928, 
at a contract cost of $19,443. 

Dover Street Bridge, Over Fort Point Channel. 
August 7, 1928, a contract was approved with W. H. 
Ellis & Son Company for rebuilding the roadway flooring 
and sidewalks of spans 3 and 4 of this bridge. The 
entire paving, planking, curb sticks and sidewalks were 
rebuilt. 



44 City Document No. 24. 

The roadway was rebuilt with new wooden riders, 
planking and waterproofing similar to the old. The 
granite blocks of the paving were recut and relaid. 
The old wooden sidewalks were replaced with concrete. 

The work was completed January 5, 1929, at a contract 
cost of $9,954.34. 

In connection with the above-mentioned work it was 
found that the steel work of these spans was in a badly 
rusted condition. The Boston Elevated Railway Com- 
pany repaired the roadway floor beams with new flange 
angles, flange plates and new rivets where required. 

A contract was approved September 29, 1928, with 
the Progressive Iron Works, Inc., for similar repairs to 
the steel fascia beams, sidewalk brackets and post con- 
nections of these spans. This part of the work was 
completed December 14, 1928, at a contract cost of 
$2,825. 

Maiden Bridge, over Mystic River. 
Walsh & Co. repaired Charlestown approach of the 
Maiden Bridge under contract approved June 5, 1928. 
Unsound piles were posted or scabbed. New stringers, 
girder caps, braces, roadway and sidewalk planking, 
curb sticks were placed in the structure where necessary. 
The mastic sidewalks were replaced with granolithic 
and the granite block paving was recut and relaid on a 
mastic base with asphalt joints. This work was 
completed October 10, 1928, at a cost of $47,665.59. 

Market Street Bridge, Brighton, over Boston & Albany 
Railroad. 

This bridge, which was maintained by the Boston & 
Albany Railroad, was an old steel structure with a 
wooden floor. 

The railroad company rebuilt this structure with steel 
deck girders encased in concrete, with concrete floor 
and an asphalt wearing surface on the roadway and 
granolithic surface on the sidewalks. 

The new bridge is a much better structure than the 
old one. 

Meridian Street Bridge, East Bostori. 

October 28, 1928, a contract was approved with W. 

H. Ellis & Son Company, for repairing the fender 

guard of this bridge, the repairs being chiefly on the 

easterly side of the channel. New piling was placed 



Public Works Department. 45 

where required. New caps, bracing, waling and corner 
irons. This work was completed December 3, 1928, at 
a contract cost of $1,716.40. 

Xorthern Avenue Bridge. 

A contract was approved June 5, 1928, with the 
Atlantic Works for the removal of the operating engine 
and its piping. Two new double cylinder link motion 
reversing engines were installed and connected with the 
driving mechanism of the bridge. This work was 
completed August 30, 1928, at a contract price of 
$3,520. 

October 30, 1928, a contract was approved with 
^Maurice AI. Devine for pointing the granite masonry 
piers. The joints were raked out and all void spaces 
filled with mortar. A gunite machine was used on this 
work. The work will be completed early in 1929. 

Under a contract approved August 9, with the New 
England Construction & Maintenance Company, rail- 
ings of this bridge were repaired by replacing such parts 
of pipe, paling, bars, posts, bolts, etc., as were neces- 
sary to put them in good condition. This work was 
completed December 29, 1928, at a contract cost of 
$1,602.50. 

Prison Point Bridge. 
August 3, 1928, a contract was approved with John 
F. Shea & Co. for repairing the paving on this bridge. 
The roadway pavement was relaid with mastic joints 
on the Charlestown approach for a distance of about 
two hundred feet from the draw crack. This work was 
completed August 29, 1928, at a contract cost of 
$1,837.67. 

Warren Bridge, over Charles River. 
May 28, 1928, a contract was approved with V. (James) 
Grande, for repairing the paving on the approaches to 
the draw of this bridge. The granite block pavement 
along the rails was relaid with mastic joints for a width 
of about 3 feet to correct settlement along the rails. 
This work was completed August 3, 1928, at a contract 
cost of $1,715.70. 

Miscellaneous. 
In connection with some other important maintenance 
work the entire wooden floor of Chelsea Street Bridge, 



46 City Document No. 24. 

over Chelsea creek, was renewed and some new piles 
driven near the draw crack on the Chelsea side of the 
channel. 

The entire wooden floor of Freeport Street Bridge, 
which was in very bad condition, was completely 
renewed. 

On Boylston Street Bridge the Boston Elevated 
Railway Company abandoned its tracks and removed 
them so that in order to make a safe floor considerable 
reconstruction was done by the Bridge Service. This 
work required the installation of several complete lines 
of new wooden stringers and the removal of several 
lines of old badly corroded steel stringers. The bridge 
is now in fairly good condition. 

East Wharf, Long Island. 
July 17, 1928, a contract was approved with the 
Rendle Corporation for repairing this wharf. New 
piles were driven to replace those damaged, some old 
piles posted, a new deck built, the fences repaired and 
painted and additional bracing put on. The work was 
completed September 11, 1928, at a contract cost of 
$11,956.70 and was done by this division for the 
Institutions Department. 

Eastern Avenue Wharf. 

October 23, 1928, a contract was approved with the 
Rendle Corporation for repairing the piers and wharf 
at Eastern avenue for the Penal Institutions Depart- 
ment. All the existing oak piles in the dock were drawn 
and replaced with new oak piles. Part of the deck of 
the wharf was rebuilt and the drop adjusted. The 
inshore end of the dock was dredged to 8 feet below city 
base. 

The work was completed January 23, 1929, at a con- 
tract price of $23,291.80. 

Garbage Dump Station, South Street, Dorchester. 
November 21, 1928, a contract was approved with 
Walsh & Co. for repairing the supports of this station. 
Some of the old piles were posted up, new braces put on 
and new posts put in. This work was done for the 
Sanitary Division by this division. It will be completed 
early in 1929. The condition of this building is such 



Public Works Department. 47 

that more work will be required immediately both on 
the substructure and the walls and windows of the 
superstructure. 

North End Paving Yard Wharf. 

July 26, 1928, a contract was approved with W. H. 
Ellis '& Son Company for the rebuilding of this wharf. 
The entire deck of the wharf was removed and replaced 
with new material. New piles, pile caps, fender piles, 
braces and dump sticks were also provided, although 
some existing piles and pile caps in good condition 
were allowed to remain in the structure. 

This work was done under the direction of this division 
for the Highway Division at a contract cost of S15,988.37, 
and was completed November 17, 1928.

FERRY SERVICE. 



The following ferryboats are in commission: 

Xame. When Built. Length. Gross Tons. 

Noddle Island (rebuilt) 1921 174 ft. 5 in. 564 

General Sumner 1900 164 " 3 " 450 

John H. Sullivan 1912 172 " 3 " 527 

Lieutenant Flahertv 1921 174 " 727 

Ralph J. Palumbo 1921 174 " 755 

Charles C. Donoghue 1926 174 " 4 " 756 . 77 

Daniel A. MacCormack 1926 174 " 4" 756.77 

All boats are of the propeller type; the first two are 
wooden and the others are steel. 

Owing to the increasing weight of the trucks which 
use the ferries, the two wooden boats are not suited to 
continue in service; and the condition of these hulls is 
not very good. 

In the case of the "Noddle Island" the hull was in 
such condition in April, 1928, that extensive repairs 
were ordered by the United States Steamboat Inspection 
Service. The repairs required were of such a nature 
and so costly that it was inadvisable to make them and 
the boat was put out of commission. The boat should 
be sold as soon as possible to get rid of the maintenance 
costs. 

New steel boats should be provided to take the place 
of these two wooden boats. 

There are two of the old type wooden ferry bridges, 
supported on pontoons, still in service at the North 
Ferry. These are unfit for the present vehicular traffic 
and should be replaced by steel bridges, electrically 
operated, similar to the others installed in recent years. 

"Lieutenant Flaherty." 
A contract for the general overhauling, cleaning and 
painting of the boat was made with the Richard T. 
Green Company and approved on September 12, 1928. 
Included in the requirements of the contract was the 
installing of one new propeller to take the place of one 
from which a blade had been knocked off; the city 



Public Works Department. 49 

furnished the spare propeller. While the general re- 
pairs were being made, the ends of the roadways were 
fitted with S-inch by S-inch by |-inch forged angles 
for the better protection of roadways from damage 
caused by the landing of the electrically operated ferry 
bridges. The terms of this contract were completed on 
October 22, 1928, and cost $10,259. 

"Charles C. Donoghue." 
On November 7, 1928, a contract with the Bethlehem 
Shipbuilding Corporation was approved to clean and 
paint the boat and make miscellaneous repairs to the 
hull and machinery, all incidental to the annual inspec- 
tion as required by the United States Steamboat 
Inspection Service. On November 26, 1928, the work 
was completed at a cost of $4,855.50, of which $4,127.17 
has been paid to date. 

''Daniel A. MacCormack." 
On November 26, 1928, a contract with the Richard 
T. Green Company was approved to clean and paint 
the boat and make miscellaneous repairs to the hull 
and machinery, all incidental to the annual inspection 
of the United States Steamboat Inspection Service. 
On December 28, 1928, the work was completed at a cost 
of S7,539, of which $6,408.15 has been paid to date. 

''Ralph J. Palumbo." 
A contract with the Atlantic Works to generally over- 
haul and paint the boat was approved on June 5, 1928. 
The work done was of a nature to prepare the hull and 
machinery for continuous running until the boat again 
comes out for inspection. The work called for under 
the terms of the contract was completed June 23, 1928, 
and cost 89,170.50. 

"General Sumner." 
On August 14, 1928, a contract with the Bethlehem 
Shipbuilding Corporation was approved to make 
some general repairs to the hull of the boat and major 
repairs to the machinery. The usual items of cleaning 
and painting the hull were completed. Owing to the 
excessive deck loads and the inherent weakness of the 
hull, the main shafting was thrown out of line and one 
length of shaft, adjacent to one of the thrust bearings, 



50 City Document No. 24. 

was broken. The work originally called for under the 
contract required the lining up of the main shaft from 
outboard bearing to outboard bearing, but since the 
misalignment of the shaft at the ends was so great, 
the degree of the error becoming apparent only after 
the boat was on the railway, that to properly line up 
these tail shafts would require the rebuilding of the 
ends, it was deemed advisable to properly adjust the 
line and crank shaft only. This change in the con- 
tract was made since the sum of money necessary to 
rebuild the ends of the boat would be greater than 
the general condition of the boat would justify. In- 
cluded in this work on the shafting was the furnishing 
of one new thrust bearing complete, the overhauling 
and rebabbitting of the other thrust and the rebuilding 
of one loose coupling. The work on the boat was 
completed on November 2, 1928, and cost S8,278. 

''John H. Sullivan." 

Under a contract with the Richard T. Green Corpo- 
ration, approved on January 28, 1928, the boat was 
put on the marine railway incidental to the annual 
inspection. At this time the boat was cleaned, gen- 
eral repairs made to the hull and machinery and the 
boat painted throughout. The guards were repaired 
on either side; included in this work was the renewing 
of much of the ironwork backing up the wooden guards. 
In order to obviate the troubles incidental to the land- 
ing and lifting of the electrically operated ferry bridges 
at the ends of the boat, the ends of the roadways were 
fitted with 8-inch by 8-inch by f-inch forged angles; 
this treatment of the ends of the roadways, originally 
used on the "Donoghue" and ''MacCormack," has 
proved quite successful and has reduced maintenance 
and repairs to ends of roadways to a minimum. This 
work was completed on March 15, 1928, at a cost of 
$10,786. 

Remodeling Canopy, North Ferry, East Boston. 

In order to adapt the approach to the new electrically 
operated ferry bridges to the double roadway feature 
of the bridge, it was necessary to rebuild the existing 
canopy, roadway and sidewalks. To do this work a 
contract with Walter E. McEachern was approved on 
March 5, 1928. Included in the work was the fur- 



Public Works Department. 51 

nishing of new gates of structural steel filled with a 
heavy woven wire mesh, all essentially as furnished 
at the other electrically operated ferry bridges. The 
work called for under this contract was completed on 
April 9, 1928. and cost $1,845.81. 

Repairing Pier, North Ferry, East Boston. 

On June 13, 1928, a contract with the Rendle Cor- 
poration was approved to rebuild the North Pier. The 
work consisted of removing the old pier, pulling all 
old piles and stumps, clearing out submerged piling, 
walls, etc., depositing of gravel fill and the rebuilding 
of the entire pier. The exposed piling and the girders 
have been treated with preservative and the tops of 
the piles covered with canvas. Some of the piles 
under the coal wharf were also replaced and part of 
the center pier repaired. The work called for under 
this contract was completed on December 22, 1928, 
and cost $18,268.35. 

Heating System, South Ferry, Boston. 

The heating of this head house has been in the past 
few years rather unsatisfactory; the chief objection 
being the escape of products of combustion from the 
gas flame at each radiator, directly into the room to 
be heated. In October, 1928, the department force 
prepared to install a new heating system consisting of 
a gas-fired boiler, automatically controlled, with radi- 
ators distributed in various rooms. At the same time 
a false ceiling was built in the main waiting room in 
order to reduce the volume of air to be heated and to 
reduce the exposed area of the room, both to reduce 
the size of the heating system necessary to raise the 
temperature of the room to the desired degree. All 
the materials were purchased by the department and 
all the work was done by the department force to 
complete the installation in time for the first of the 
winter weather. 

Yours respectfully, 

John E. Carty, 

Division Engineer.

APPENDIX C. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF THE 
HIGHWAY DIVISION. 



Boston, January 2, 1929. 

Mr. James H. Sullivan, 

Commissioner oj Public Woi'ks. 

Dear Sir, — I submit herewith a statement of the 
activities and expenditures of the Lighting and the Pav- 
ing Services for the year ending December 31, 1928. 

The maintenance expenditures for the Highway 
Division for the year were as follows: 

Lighting Service $977,195 76 

Paving Service 1,698,978 94 



Total .$2,676,174 70 

Maintenance. 

The division forces were engaged during the year in 
resurfacing macadam roadways, patching and repairing 
defects in roadways and sidewalks. Altogether about 
sixty streets were resurfaced, nearly all of which were in 
the Roxbury, Dorchester, West Roxbury, South Boston 
and Brighton districts. 

The Brighton paving yard plant, after having been 
nearly destroyed by fire, has been rebuilt on a much 
larger and more efficient scale and has delivered a much 
larger output of hot and cold mixed asphalt and tar for 
the various parts of the city and the repair work on 
asphalt and bitulithic pavements out of guarantee. This 
work has been done by the division forces. 

The snow plowing of streets in the suburbs was done 
under the direction of the district foremen. A greater 
number of heavy duty hired trucks equipped with snow 
plows were engaged in keeping all streets open to travel. 
After each snow fall, in addition to the work of snow 
plowing, the district forces removed the snow from im- 
portant shopping centers in the suburban districts. 



Public Works Department. 75 

Construction. 

Diiiing- the year contracts were awarded to do work on 
about one liundred and twelve streets. There were 
about 52,000 square yards of recut granite block laid; 
211,000 square yards of sheet asphalt; 112,000 square 
yards of bituhthic, all laid on a concrete or macadam 
base; and 104,000 square yards of artificial stone side- 
walks. Fifty-one streets laid out under the "Highways 
making of," appropriation, were constructed. 

The following are important thoroughfares that were 
reconstructed: Border street, Central square to Condor 
street; Boylston street, Ipswich street to Brookline 
avenue; Cambridge street, Charles river to Harvard 
avenue; Cambridge street. Sever street to Somerville 
line; Condor street, Border street to Meridian street; 
D street, West First street to Dorchester avenue; Han- 
over street, Washington street to Commercial street; 
Harrison avenue, Dover street to East Newton street; 
Heath street, Columbus avenue to South Huntington 
avenue; Longwood avenue, Brookline avenue to River- 
way; Providence street, Arlington street to Church 
street. 

Street Signs. 

During the year the Paving Service has continued the 
erecting of new street signs principally on the most 
important thoroughfares of Dorchester, South Boston, 
Roxbury, East Boston, Hyde Park, and West Roxbury. 
All new streets constructed during the year were also 
supplied with the new signs. 

The blocking in of signs between the thoroughfare 
streets has begun and will be continued during the coming 
year. 

Street Lighting. 

The Lighting Service has installed twenty-two new 
fifteen hundred candle power Mazda lamps with 
Westinghouse hollow spun concrete posts on Common- 
wealth avenue, between Brighton avenue and Warren 
street, Brighton. Twelve pendant type arc lamps were 
changed to the new type and unit at original locations 
and nineteen pendant type arc lamps were changed to 
the new type and unit and shifted to new locations. 

On Blue Hill avenue, between Columbia road and 
Talbot avenue, Dorchester, four new arc lamps were 
installed, five arc lamps changed to the Mazda unit

APPENDIX D. 



REPORT OF THE DIVLSION ENGINEER OF THE 
SANITARY DIVISION. 



Boston, January 1, 1929. 

^1r. James H. Sullivan, 

Commissioner oj Public Works. 

Dear Sir, — I submit herewith a statement of the 
activities and expenditures of the Sanitary Division for 
the year ending December 31, 1928. 

The maintenance expenditures of the Sanitary Divi- 
sion follow: 

Sanitary Division $3,101,885 95 



Sanitary Service. 

^Yith the establishment of a follow-up system on 
complaints and the adoption of a routing system in the 
various districts, the number of complaints have re- 
duced very materially during the year. 

While the question of the long haul to the inland 
dumps reducing the number of loads is one of our great- 
est handicaps, nevertheless, this work of removal of 
ashes and garbage must be carried on without any delay, 
and this question of regular collections presents one of 
the greatest problems the department has to contend 
with. 

Street Cleaning Service. 

The shortage of men in the Street Cleaning Service 
presents a very serious problem in the cleaning of our 
suburban streets. While the motor-driven pick-up 
sweepers have helped very materially on the smooth 
surface streets, this is a very different problem on the 
paved streets where it is a hoe, broom and shovel 
proposition. 



104 City Document No. 24. 

This means an adequate force of street cleaning men 
available at all times to cover this large area of paved 
streets. 

The problem of taking care of the old abandoned 
automobile bodies left on pubUc streets and public 
alleys is growing more acute each year, and some means 
will have to be devised to handle this problem. 



Yours respectfully, 



D. J. Lynch, 

Assistant Engineer. 



Public Works Department. 105

During the fiscal year 1928, there were built by 
contractors, day labor and private parties, 21.55 miles

APPENDIX F. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF THE 
WATER DIVISION. 



Boston January 2, 1929. 
To the Com^nissioner oj Public Works: 

The following report of the operation, income and 
expenditures of the Water Division for the year ending 
December 31, 1928, is respectfully submitted. 

Building construction and continued property devel- 
opment in the West Roxbury, Dorchester and Brighton 
districts has called for the greater portion of the pipe 
laying during the year, 3.5 miles of water pipe was 
laid in West Roxbury, 2.6 miles in Dorchester and 
1.3 miles in Brighton. 

The total length of pipe laid for extension of the 
system was 8.6 miles and the work was executed under 
twenty- two contracts awarded at various times during 
the year. 

The more important pipe extension was the laying 
of 2,728 linear feet of 16-inch pipe in Harrison avenue 
between East Concord and Bristol streets, reinforcing 
the fire protection to the Boston City Hospital and the 
manufacturing district adjoining Harrison avenue. 

During the year 15,285 linear feet, or 2.9 miles of 
4-inch and 6-inch water pipe laid fifty years or more 
was relaid with 8-inch and 12-inch pipe, improving 
the fire protection in the more densely populated sec- 
tions of the city and furnishing the quantity of water 
demanded by the modern type of fire engines manned 
by the Boston Fire Department. 

Among the longer lengths were: 

City Proper. 

Hanover street, between Charter and Commercial 
streets, 760 hnear feet of 6-inch and 12-inch relaid with 
16-inch pipe. 

Hudson street, between Beach and Curve streets, 
1,467 hnear feet of 6-inch relaid with 12-inch pipe. 



170 City Document No. 24. 

Buckingham street, between Clarendon and Dart- 
mouth streets, 451 linear feet of 6-ineh relaid with 
12-inch pipe. 

ROXBURY. 

Alaska street, between Perrin street and Blue Hill 
avenue, 212 linear feet of 4-inch relaid with 8-inch pipe. 

Dorchester, 

Mill street, between Victory road and Freeport 
street, 1,717 linear feet of 6-inch relaid with 8-inch pipe. 

Ashland street, between Everdeen and Park streets, 
1,067 linear feet of 6-inch relaid with 8-inch pipe. 

Everett street, between Mill and Park streets, 407 
linear feet of 6-inch relaid with 8-inch pipe. 

Beach street, between Park and Freeport streets, 
834 linear feet of 6-inch relaid with 12-inch pipe. 

Avondale street, between St. Gregory and Richmond 
streets, 368 hnear feet of 6-inch relaid with 8-inch pipe. 

Brighton. 

Harriett street, between Hobart and Parsons streets, 
529 Hnear feet of 6-inch relaid with 8-inch pipe. 

West Roxbury. 

Ashland street, between Harvard and Sutton streets, 
979 linear feet of 8-inch relaid with 16-inch pipe. 

The widening and reconstruction of Oakland street. 
West Roxbury, between Rugby road and Harvard 
street, occasioned the relaying and relocating of 1,520 
linear feet of the 16-inch pipe in addition to regulating 
the pipes to the side streets, etc. 

In Morton street, Dorchester, between Washington 
and Manchester streets, 1,683 linear feet of 12-inch 
and 10-inch pipes were relocated, lowered, etc., for a 
similar reconstruction. 

Service pipes numbering 2,463 and varying in size 
from f-inch to 12-inch were installed and of this number 
118 were 4-inch pipes to furnish sprinkler protection. 

The regular w^ork of the Distribution Branch, con- 
sisting of repairing leaks, estabhshing fire and service 
pipes, freeing stoppages in the older service pipes, 
shutting off and letting on water, etc., was performed 
in such manner and at such times as to provide a min- 
imum of delay and discomfort to water apphcants, 



Public Works Department. 171 

water takers, and the general public; practically all 
the work in the business district is now done on Sundays 
to meet the above conditions. 

To comply with the Legislative Acts of 1907, 638 
meters were set on old services in existence previous 
to 1907, and on new service pipes 2,181 meters were 
estabhshed, making a total of 2,819 meters set during 
the year. On December 31, 1928, the total number 
of services metered were 96,464 and there remains 
about 500 miscellaneous services to municipal property, 
etc., in various sections of the city to meter. With 
99.0 per cent of Boston metered, the work of the Meter 
Branch has increased and in addition to the installation 
of meters on new and old services, 7,618 meters have 
been changed and reset and 2,058 meters have been 
repaired in service. 

The collections for all purposes in the Water Division 
were $4,314,789.54, and an important factor in the 
prompt payment of the water bills is the statute making 
water bills a lien on real estate. 

Very respectfully, 

C. J. Carven, 

Division Engineer.

* The completion of the metering of all services to within J per cent of the total number 
of live service pipes discloses the fact that the total number of service pipes will not exceed 
97,000. The large discrepancy is found to be due to the fact that previous to 1880 no 
deductions were made for pipes abandoned, etc.

The commission is composed of two members, one 
appointed by the Mayor of the City of Boston and the 
other by the ]\layor of the City of Cambridge, under 
provisions of chapter 467, Acts of 1898. 

The commission has charge of the maintenance of the 
following-named bridges between Boston and Cambridge. 

Anderson, Cottage Farm, Longfellow, Prison Point, 
River street and Western avenue to Cambridge. Cot- 
tage Farm Bridge was returned to the control of the 
commission on November 17, 1928, after being rebuilt 
by the AletropoHtan District Commission. 

As there is no separate appropriation made for the 
City of Boston's portion of the expenses of this commis- 
sion, the same is taken from the appropriation for the 
Bridge and Ferry Division, Bridge Service. The amount 
expended during the fiscal year ending December 31, 
1928, was §15,584.52. 

Anderson Bridge, over Charles River, between 
Boston and Cambridge. 

A contract was awarded to Walsh & Co., approved 
October 19, 1928, for repaving the surface of this bridge. 
The original wood block paving was removed and re- 
placed with reinforced cement concrete pavement six 
inches thick, laid on the concrete base with a layer of 
tar paper mopped with asphalt between the top and 
bottom slabs. A'elo quick-setting cement was used in 
the concrete so that traffic was turned on to the bridge 
within twenty-four hours after the pouring of the 
concrete. S17.53 was paid for advertising this contract

in 1928. The contract was finished on November 17, 
1928. When final payment is made the total cost to 
Boston for this work will be $2,781.50. A similar 
amount will be paid by the city of Cambridge. 

Cottage Farm Bridge. 

Cottage Farm Bridge, between Boston and Cam- 
bridge, has been reconstructed by the Metropolitan 
District Commission. No car tracks were provided for 
on the new bridge, which is of concrete and steel. 
The location of the Boston & Albany Railroad tracks 
under the bridge, was altered in order to make a better 
appearance and the Metropolitan District Commission 
reconstructed the railroad bridge in connection with the 
work of the highway bridge, the railroad company pay- 
ing toward the cost of construction $125,000. The 
apportionment of cost of the structure on the parties 
interested has not yet been made. 

Prison Point Bridge. 

The channelway under this bridge was blocked by the 
improvements being made by the Boston & Maine Rail- 
road and no more boats will pass through the channel- 
way. It is therefore advisable that the bridge be 
strengthened, a new flooring placed and a new type of 
surfacing laid, so that the constant repairs and patching 
of this structure may be eliminated.
