ANNUAL REPORT 



PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT 



YEAR ENDING DECEMBER 31, 1936. 



Boston, January 2, 1937. 

Hon. Frederick W. Mansfield, 
Mayor of Boston. 
Dear Sir, — In compliance with the Revised Ordi- 
nances, the annual report of the operations and expenses 
of the Public Works Department for the year ending 
December 31, 1936, 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 consolidating the Engineering, 
•Water and Street Departments. 

Organization. 

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

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; and the care and management 
of the ferries owned by the city, including boats, slips, 
drops and buildings, and the maintenance and opera- 
tion of the Sumner Tunnel. 



2 City Document No. 24. 

Note.— The Boston and Cambridge Bridges Division, 
so called, is not, strictly speaking, a division of the 
Public Works Department, as this work is in charge 
of a commission of two, one member appointed by the 
Mayor of Boston and one by the Mayor of Cambridge, 
under the provisions of chapter 467 of the Acts of 1898; 
but because of the fact that the present Commissioner 
of Public Works is the Boston member of this commis- 
sion, and also because one half of the expense of the 
commission is defrayed by the Bridge Service, it is 
in this report treated as a division of the department. 

Highway Division. — This division, under a division 
engineer, has charge of the construction, reconstruc- 
tion and maintenance of roadways and sidewalks, and 
the care of lamps and lighting 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 and mainte- 
nance of sewers, catch-basins and waterways. 

Water Division. — This division, under a division 
engineer, has the care of all water pipes in the water 
system, the laying and relaying of water mains and the 
care of the high pressure fire system. 

Water Income Division. — This division, under a divi- 
sion engineer, has charge of financial operations in 
connection with the sale of water, reading of water 
meter registrations, making out quarterly water bills 
for all consumers, forwarding said bills to City Collector's 
office, installation and maintenance of water meters 
and enforcement of payment of water bills. 

Bridge and Ferry Division. 
Considerable progress has been made on the con- 
struction of the new steel and concrete bridge at Chelsea 



Public Works Department. 3 

street, over Chelsea Creek, between East Boston and 
Chelsea. This bridge is being built under Federal 
Emergency Administration of Public Works Project, 
Mass. Docket 1086-R, and is in a new location parallel 
with the old structure. It will be completed and open 
for use next year. 

With the approval of the Department of Public 
Utilities the reduced toll rates of the Sumner Tunnel, 
which became effective on January 14, 1935, were 
continued in force during the present year. Following 
is a schedule of the reduced rates :

4 City Document No. 24. 

Highway Division. 

On March 31, 1936, your Honor approved contracts 
with the Boston ConsoHdated Gas Company for furnish- 
ing illuminating gas and for the equipment, lighting 
and extinguishing of gas street lamps during the period 
of five years beginning with said date. As required 
by the City Charter these contracts were also approved 
by the City Council. 

This year, following the recommendation of the 
Committee on Snow Removal appointed by your 
Honor, a large amount of equipment consisting of 
trucks, tractors, snow loaders, plows, etc., has been pur- 
chased, and the number of districts in which snow will 
be removed by contract has been reduced to four. 

Sanitary Division. 
In order that better service may be given in the Elm 
Hill section of Roxbury it is considered advisable that 
the collections of ashes and garbage in this section be 
carried on by contract, and arrangements are now being 
made for the establishment of this additional contract 
district. Men and equipment now working in this 
section can be concentrated in the Roxbury and other 
day labor districts. 

Sewer Division. 
The usual activities of this division were carried on 
during the year. A start has been made on the con- 
struction of sewerage works in the Government Housing 
Project in South Boston known as Old Harbor Village. 

Water Division. 
This division, during the year 1936, has carried on its 
policy of replacing with larger sizes the mains which 
have been in service for years and which had outlived 
their usefulness. Much of this work was done by 
W. P. A. forces.

various divisions are respectfully submitted.

C. J. Carven,

APPENDIX A. 



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



Boston, January 2, 1937. 
To the Commissioner 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, 1936. The expenditures of the division in the 
regular maintenance appropriations of the department 
were $970,128.33. Under a number of special appro- 
priations $631,272.84 was expended, making the total 
expenditures for the year $1,601,401.17. This does not 
include certain expenditures for construction work for 
other departments, which work was supervised by the 
engineers of this division. 

Under orders of the Department of Public Utilities, 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts, a new schedule of 
tolls and charges for the use of the Sumner Traffic 
Tunnel, between Boston proper and East Boston, was 
approved, covering this year (1936). 

Under the provisions of House Bill No. 1625, pro- 
viding for the repair and strengthening of Chelsea 
Bridge North, over the Mystic river, by the City of 
Boston, this bridge was closed to traffic at midnight, 
January 13, 1935. A contract was awarded to Cole- 
man Brothers, Inc., for repairing and strengthening 
this bridge and work was started January 22, 1935. 
The bridge was opened to travel December 23, 1935. 
The entire work was completed July 15, 1936, at a total 
cost of $264,982.18. A detailed statement of this work 
appears further on in this report. 

A contract was awarded to T. Stuart & Son Company, 
Watertown, Mass., approved January 15, 1936, for 
Rebuilding Chelsea Street Bridge, over Chelsea Creek, 
at a contract price of $629,446.50. This is a Federal 
Emergency Administration of Public Works Project, 
Mass. Docket 1086-R. The cost of this rebuilding will 
be paid for as follows: 



Public Works Department. 21 

55 per cent by the City of Boston. 

45 per cent by the Federal Emergency Administration of PubHc 
AVorks. 

It is expected that work will be completed about June 
1, 1937. A detailed statement appears further on in 
this report. 

This division had no Federal Relief Projects outside 
of the rebuilding of Chelsea Street Bridge. 

The more important works undertaken during the 
past year in the Bridge Service were the repairs, altera- 
tion and painting of AUston Bridge; the rebuilding of 
Chelsea Street Bridge, over Chelsea Creek; repairing 
foundations of Alericlian Street Bridge; repairs to floor- 
ing of Milton Street Bridge, and repairing the draw 
span of Northern Avenue Bridge. 

Bridge Service. 

AUston Bridge. — A contract with the John F. Shea 
Company, Inc., was approved by the Mayor on Novem- 
ber 4, 1936, to clean, paint, repair steel members, install 
blast guards and do certain other incidental work to 
the deck system. Before the close of year only a small 
part of the work was completed. 

Chelsea Bridge North. 

The work called for under a contract entered into 
with the Coleman Brothers Corporation, of Boston, 
approved on January 21, 1934, was not completed 
until July 15, 1936. The extension of time necessary 
to complete the work was caused by severe weather 
and the loss in transit by fire of about one-third of the 
piles required to do the work. The total cost of the 
work under this contract was $264,982.18, 

To repair damage done to the fascia, fence and side- 
walk of the draw, due to fouling by the M. S. "Cali- 
fornia, " a contract with the Progressive Iron Works 
was approved by the Mayor on May 13, 1936. This 
work was completed on May 21, at a cost of $1,085. 

Chelsea Street Bridge. 
On January 15, 1936, the Mayor approved a contract 
with the T. Stuart & Son Company for the rebuilding 
of this bridge. This work is a Federal Emergency 
Administration of Public Works Project, Mass. Docket 
1086-R, and calls for an entirely new bridge, paralleling 



22 City Document No. 24. 

approximately the present wooden structure. The 
new bridge will be a steel and concrete structure, the 
spans supported on masonry piers and the draw cross- 
ing a 100-foot waterway, will be a heel trunnion type, 
built under Strauss patents. 

At the close of the year the piers and fixed spans 
exclusive of the surfacing were completed and the draw 
leaf, which is being erected in the raised position, was 
about 50 per cent completed. 

Due to the great area over which materials and 
equipment were supplied for this contract, proper 
inspection by the regular personnel in the employ of 
the city would have been too expensive. For this 
reason a contract was entered into with the Robert W. 
Hunt Company of New York, to conduct such tests 
and inspections as will be required. 

Meridian Street Bridge. 

The normal aging and disintegrating of the landing 
piers and foundations of the draw of this bridge pro- 
gressed to such a degree that on September 3, 1936, 
the Mayor approved a contract with W. H. Ellis & Son 
Compan}^ to make such renewals and repairs to pile 
and timber work as were necessary to keep the draw 
in commission. At the same time the concrete base of 
the draw foundation was repaired by freeing the old 
forms from the sides adjacent to the waterways which 
were left in place originally to protect the concrete, 
clearing loose and disintegrated concrete from the base, 
building new side forms the same as the originals in all 
details and pouring a rich concrete to replace all that 
had been removed from the original. 

Work was completed on November 20, 1936, at a cost 
of $4,211.26. 

Milton Street Bridge (Hyde Park). 

On July 23, 1936, a contract with M. Solimando of 
Boston was approved by the Mayor to renew the deck- 
ing entirely. The new deck is of 4-inch yellow pine; 
on this deck there was laid a 2-inch bituminous concrete. 
Type E surface on the westerly span and on the easterly 
span a wearing surface of 2-inch spruce was laid. 

Work under this contract was completed on August 
19, 1936, at a cost of $5,528.72. 



Public Works Department. 23 

Northern Avenue Bridge. 

Owing to a fouling of two end lifts and two pedestals 
during an opening of the draw on February 7, 1936, 
emergency repairs were necessary to get the draw in 
commission again in the shortest time. The Boston 
Bridge Works were called in to reset two pedestals, 
overhaul two air cylinders and end lift elements, make 
two new piston rods for the cylinders, make repairs and 
renewals to end of chord of outside truss and make 
incidental adjustments to the diagonals and counters 
of the trusses. 

Work completed on February 19, 1936, at a cost of 
Sl,786.46. 

Day Labor Force. 
The Day Labor Force patched and replaced deck 
sheathing, headers and sidewalk planking on various 
bridges; repaired platforms, refastened treads, repaired 
draw headers, cleaned and painted draw houses and 
shelter houses; made repairs to draw houses and con- 
troller houses, added to counterweights, repaired steps; 
removed snow and ice from bridges and sanded same;

Miscellaneous. 
Aside from the purely divisional activities there was 
an appreciable amount of time and effort spent in other 
departmental work and work outside of the depart- 
ment itself. It should be noted in every case that 
work was deemed by the Commissioner to be of an 
emergency nature that required immediate attention of 
the personnel of this division. 

Sanitary Division. 
Albany Street Garbage Dump Station. 
A contract was approved January 29, 1936, with the 
Bay State Dredging and Contracting Company, for 
dredging dock at Albany Street Garbage Dump Sta- 
tion. The work was completed February 27, 1936, 
at a cost of $1,850. 

Ferry Service. 
The following ferryboats are in commission :

All these boats are of the propeller type and are all 
steel boats. 

The work of this service for the year consisted of the 
following : 

Ferryboat ^^ Charles C. Donoghue.'' 

On May 13, 1936, the Mayor approved a contract 
with the Quincy Dry Dock and Yacht Corporation, to 



Public Works Department. 25 

make annual repairs. Besides the routine cleaning 
and painting of the hull and superstructure and mis- 
cellaneous repairs, the crank and shaft of the main 
engines was lined up with all necessary rebabbitting of 
main bearings, all cjdinders of the main engines rebored, 
the high pressure piston valves were renewed, the inter- 
mediate wheel guards of the main deck remodelled, four 
crank pin boxes were rebabbitted, and foin- new main 
engine valve steams were renewed. All w^ork was 
completed on July 3, 1936, at a cost of $8,138.01. 

Ferryboat "Lieutenant Flaherty. '^ 
Due to the age and natural deterioration of the ma- 
terials of the hull and superstructure, considerable 
renewals were required to put the vessel in acceptable 
condition to the United States Steamboat Inspection 
Service when papers of this ship expired. On September 
3, 1936, the Mayor approved a contract with the Beth- 
lehem Shipbuilding Corporation, Limited, to do the 
necessary annual cleaning, painting and repairs. Other 
work than regular repairs included rebabbitting and 
machining of the horse-shoe thrust bearings of the main 
engines, the renewing of the wooden staving at the ends 
of the main deck, and the removal of never used emer- 
gency exits, toilets, and locker closets in the cabins; 
these last in no degree ever justified their original 
installation. Work under this contract was completed 
October 21, 1936, at a cost of $13,849.77. 

Ferryboat "Daniel A. MacCormack.'^ 
The annual repairs to the hull, etc., incidental to the 
United States Steamboat Inspection Service, which 
were started last December, were completed on March 
20, 1936. Included in the repairs and renewals was 
the reboring of the four cylinders of the main engines, 
rebabbitting of four main bearings and three crank 
pin boxes, fitting of two new high pressure piston valves, 
and the remodelling of the intermediate wheel guards 
on the main deck. The total cost of w^ork under this 
contract was $9,618.36. 

Ferryboat "Ralph J. Palumho.'^ 
A contract with the Quincy Dry Dock and Yacht 
Corporation was approved by the Maj^or for the annual 
overhauling and repairs on this ship. At the close 
of the year work had not been completed.

Department Force. 

During the year machinists, carpenters, painters, 
riggers and electricians, who make up the personnel of 
the Ferry Service, made all repairs possible to the plant 
to the extent of equipment at their disposal. This 
work was made up mainly of minor repairs to the 
machinery on the boats, repairs to ferry bridge machin- 
ery, ferry bridge roadways and headhouse repairs in 
general. 

Sumner Tunnel. 
Summary of Work During 1936. 

In January of 1936, a rotating schedule for mainte- 
nance work was put into effect. In this plan, the various 
items of work was divided into a number of groups and 
as each man finished his shift of work as operator and 
inspector on the operation of the tunnel he was assigned 
to one of these groups for a given period. For the next 
maintenance period, the man was shifted to a different 
group so that over a period of about a year all the men 
would work on all the different types of equipment. 
The object of this schedule was primarily for the pur- 
pose of performing "preventative maintenance," that 
is to check equipment and make adjustments and repairs 
before trouble developed and thus avoid shutting down 
of any equipment for trouble. 

During the year, in addition to the general main- 
tenance of equipment, there was considerable work 
done of a special nature which really amounted to addi- 
tions, changes and new construction. A summary of 
these main items is given. 

1. Toll Indicators. — Sidewalk toll indicators were 
installed on all the traffic lanes at the booths on each 
end. The traffic signals were relocated on the front 
side of the booths and the toll indicators were located 
on the pedestal of the traffic signals. When the col- 
lector registers the fare a bell rings and the indicator 
lights up the section, which shows the fare registered. 
The section remains lighted for about four seconds and 
then automatically goes out. This gives the driver of 
the car sufficient opportunity to read the amount 
registered. 

2. Traffic Signal Systern. — Traffic signal indicators 
have been located on the outside of the toll booth doors 



Public Works Department. 27 

so that the indicators are visible to the collectors at 
all times. The traffic signal control equipment has been 
tested regularly. Signal units have been cleaned and 
repaired as needed. 

The bells on the Booth-Red alarm at the toll booths 
have been replaced by a horn. A relay has been in- 
stalled which starts the horn blowing immediately 
after the button is pushed, and then the relay causes 
the horn to blow intermittently with a time interval of 
about 1-2 seconds ON and about 3-4 seconds OFF. 
The Booth-Red alarm is tested regularly to make sure 
that it is operating properly. Even after the horn 
stops blowing and the red signal light goes off, the toll 
collectors are not permitted to start traffic into the 
tunnel until the operator calls the booths and gives 
the OK. 

3. Telephone System. — Telephones were relocated in 
the toil booths so that the collectors can answer the 
telephone and continue collecting fares. This change 
in location will reduce the breakage of handsets. 

Additional telephones were installed; one in each 
ventilation shaft near the exhaust air regulator door; 
one in each 13.8 KV. switch room; and one in the base- 
ment of the Boston ventilation building. 

During the year, 2,020 feet of 16-pair, 1,500 feet of 
11-pair and 750 feet of 5-pair of Anhydrex rubber- 
jacketed telephone cables were pulled in to replace the 
old lead-covered telephone cables. This completes the 
work started in 1935, so that now all telephone cables 
in the tunnel to the east of the Boston ventilation shaft 
have been replaced, and all connections to telephone 
stations have been completed. All telephone stations 
in the tunnel have been overhauled and rubber cords 
installed on the handsets. Connections have been 
arranged so that the jack circuits can be thrown on the 
telephone switchboard. This makes it possible to use 
handsets with plugs instead of portable telephone sets. 

4. Static Eliminators. — There has been considerable 
trouble and many complaints from shocks received by 
persons when paying the fare due to the discharge of 
the static potential on the car to the collector. A 
study was made of this trouble and a device has been 
installed on all lanes for eliminating this static. This 
device consists of a spring steel leaf mounted on a rubber 



28 City Document No. 24. 

flapper and with the steel leaf grounded to the anchor 
bolt. This device is mounted in the roadway just 
before the car reaches the door of the toll booth. The 
striking of this spring leaf by any part of the car dis- 
charges the static potential of the car. 

5. Tunnel Fire Line. — To replace the old 6-inch 
water line that froze and broke during the winter of 
1934-35, a 4-inch water line has been installed on the 
curb on the south side of the tunnel. This line was 
installed between the two portal pumps rooms, with 
the connections made through the portal pump rooms 
to the city water mains under Richmond street and 
INIeridian street. Main cut-off valves and check valves 
were installed in the portal pump rooms. Unit type 
electric heaters with thermostat control have been in- 
stalled in the portal pump rooms so that all danger of 
freezing has been eliminated. Connections were brought 
up from this 4-inch water line to hose outlets in the 
original hose niches along the south wall of the tunnel. 
All doors have been removed from these hose niches, 
the inside of the niches have been painted and labelled, 
''B. F. D." or ''T. F. D." There are nineteen 2i-inch 
hose connections for the Boston Fire Department and 
thirty-six l|-inch hose connections for first-aid hose of 
the Sumner Tunnel. 

Near the center of the tunnel at the lowest point in 
the tunnel, a l|-inch drain line connects to a motor- 
operated valve located in the harbor pump room. The 
control for this drain valve has been temporarily located 
on the sidewalk at Station No. 31. It is planned to 
have motor-operated valves on the supply end in each 
pump room and these valves will be interlocked with the 
control of the drain valve, and all these valves will be 
operated from the control room. Only the drain valve 
has been installed as motor-operated. 

This water line will be kept dry during the winter 
months to prevent any freezing. During the summer 
months the line will be kept filled with water but not 
under pressure. The main valves at each end will be 
kept closed to prevent flooding the tunnel in case of 
an accident which breaks the pipe line in the tunnel. 

6. Harbor Pump Room. — New, larger and heavier 
foot valves have been installed in the pumps. Lights 
have been installed over the foot-valves. A unit type 



Public Works Department. 29 

electric heater with thermostat control has been in- 
stalled in the pump room. This heater prevents any 
freezing in the winter and also reduces the moisture 
condensation in the pump room and thereby reduces 
corrosion and rust on the equipment. 

7. Tunnel — General. — All covers of splicing cham- 
bers have been painted. Drains have been cut in 
various niches in the tunnel to prevent water standing 
in the niches. The catch-basins and sumps have been 
cleaned as needed, and the roadway repaired as required. 
Tunnel lighting fixtures have been cleaned regularly 
and repaired. The exhaust air duct above the tunnel 
roadway was cleaned in the spring and again in the fall 
by a vacuum cleaner. A door was installed in the 
bulkhead in the exhaust air duct at the center of the 
tunnel so that the vacuum cleaner can be taken through 
from one section of the tunnel to the other section. 

All cable manholes were pumped twice during the 
year. 

8. Ventilation Buildings. — General. — Considerable 
trouble has been caused by persons (mainly children) 
climbing over the fence at the Boston ventilation build- 
ing, so barb wires were installed on top of the iron paling 
fence. The floors in both ventilation buildings were 
painted during the year. The exhaust fan rooms were 
cleaned regularly. The 14-blower fans were painted 
and also the 28-fan motor controllers. 

9. Ventilation Buildings. — Ventilation Equipment. — 
All ventilation fan motors were thoroughly overhauled, 
cleaned and sprayed with insulating varnish. Grease 
fittings and drain plugs were installed on the motor 
bearings and a felt-retaining ring was installed in the 
bearings. The control equipment for the fan motors 
was regularly cleaned, adjusted and repaired. Faults 
occurred in tachometer cables on fans E20 and W20. 
The lead cables on the tachometers were replaced by 
rubber- jacketed cables. Metal housings were installed 
over the blower damper motors to protect these motors 
from the weather. The damper on fan E12 is the verti- 
cal sliding type and much trouble has been experienced 
with this damper failing to open. Alterations were made 
on this damper to overcome the trouble. 

10. Ventilation Buildings. — • Elevators. — Alterations 
were made on the various door switches of the elevators. 



30 City Document No. 24. 

The elevators and the control equipment were checked 
regularly, adjusted and repaired. The annual load test 
and inspection was made by the Portland Elevator 
Company. 

11. Ventilation Buildings. — Switching Equipment. — 
At specified regular intervals all switches and oil circuit 
breakers have been tested for operation. Adjustments 
and repairs were made to keep all equipment in proper 
operating condition. For the first time since the tunnel 
opened, the oil was tested and the contacts and operat- 
ing mechanism was checked for the 10-13,800 volt and 
the 8-2,300 volt oil circuit breakers. 

12. Ventilation Buildings. — • Miscellaneous Equip- 
ment. — The oil level on all the transformers was checked 
and oil was added as required. The oil in all the trans- 
formers was tested for dielectric strength and acidity. 
The oil in transformer ET2 had a low^ dielectric strength 
and the oil was changed. All induction regulators were 
regularly tested and adjusted. 

All the graphic voltmeter ground detectors were 
checked, adjusted and repaired. 

In order to maintain proper ventilation and to prevent 
drawing in of smoke from adjacent chimneys, the ope- 
rator must know the direction of the wind. For this 
purpose, a weather vane was made and installed on the 
roof of the Boston ventilation building, with a remote 
indicator in the control room. A light also indicates 
when the temperature drops to freezing. 

Very careful maintenance has been given to the 
carbon monoxide recording equipment to keep this 
apparatus in perfect operating condition. The equip- 
ment has been checked and calibrated at regular inter- 
vals. The alarm on the carbon monoxide recorders has 
been changed from 3.0 to 2.5 parts of CO in 10,000 parts 
of air, and the operators have been instructed to keep 
the dilution of the air below 1.5 parts during certain 
periods of heavy traffic. In order to further better the 
air conditions in the tunnel, experimental work is now 
being done on a smoke detector and indication equip- 
ment. It is possible for the carbon monoxide content 
to be low^, and still there may be smoke in the tunnel. 
This apparatus will indicate to the operator the presence 
of smoke in the tunnel and the ventilation can be changed 
to remove the smoke. Since carbon monoxide is color- 
less, the presence of smoke in the tunnel does not indicate 



Public Works Department. 31 

carbon monoxide, but smoke is unpleasant to users of 
the tunnel. Thus, the indication of smoke in the tunnel 
and the proper change in ventilation to remove the 
smoke will make for better air conditions in the tunnel 
and more satisfied users. 

Tests were made on the metering cable which trans- 
fers meter readings from the East Boston ventilation 
building to the Boston ventilation building. Trouble 
was experienced by the Edison Electric Illuminating 
Company in the failure to record the totalized demand 
readings from East Boston. Changes were made in the 
power for these readings from 36 volts D. C. to 110 
volts A. C. to prevent continued discharge on the storage 
batteries. Forty-three of the seventy-six conductors in 
the cable were tested and only six conductors were 
found to be in good condition. It is planned to 
replace this cable with an Anhydrex rubber-jacketed 
cable in 1937. 

13. Poiver Consumption. — Electrical power is sup- 
plied by the Edison Electric Illuminating Company, at 
13,800 volts by two cables to each ventilation building. 
This power is used not only for ventilation but all 
lighting of the tunnel and buildings and also electric 
heating.

14. Booth-Red. — In case of a fire, wreck, or any 
other serious trouble in the tunnel, the guards on duty 
push an emergency button which sets the "red" traffic 
lights and starts a horn to blowing at each entrance to 
the tunnel. All traffic is stopped from entering the 
tunnel. During the year, the booth-red was put on 
17 times for an average duration of 6.3 minutes. 
(In 1935, the booth-red was put on 38 times for an 
average time duration of 8.7 minutes.) Of the 17 times 
the BOOTH-RED was put on, 12 times it was put on by 
mistake. Thus the booth-red was put on only 5 
times for some trouble for a total time duration of 76 
minutes. 



32 City Document No. 24. 

15. Toiv Jobs. — During 1936 there were 268 tow 
jobs reported as compared to 456 tow jobs in 1935. 
There were 96 trucks and buses and 172 passenger cars 
towed out of the tunnel. 

16. Miscellaneous. — On July 17, between 1.30 and 
4.30 a. m., 68 trucks and 16 cars for a circus passed 
through the tunnel. 

On June 8, at 10.50 p. m. the fire alarm was pulled 
for a fire on the third floor of the Administration Build- 
ing, which floor is occupied by the Traffic Commission. 

Tunnel Administration Building — Repairs. 

A contract with the Codman Hill Construction Com- 
pany was approved by the Mayor on June 24, 1936, to 
repair damage caused by fire at the tunnel Adminis- 
tration Building. The fire caused extensive damage 
and necessitated removing the old ceiling of the entire 
third floor and replacing with new metal lathing and 
three-coat plaster. 

New glass partitions, doors, hardware, window frames, 
glass, electrical fixtures and some new flooring and all 
new painting and finishing were required. 

It was necessary that the work be carried on at night 
and on Sundays and holidays, so as not to interfere 
with the activities of the Traffic Division, which occupies 
the floor. 

Work under this contract was completed July 28, 
1936, at a cost of $5,350. 

Yours respectfully, 

Thomas H. Sexton, 
Division E^igineer.

APPENDIX B. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF 
THE HIGHWAY DIVISION. 



January 2, 1937. 

To the Comrnissioner of Public Works. 

Dear Sir, — I submit the following report of the 
operations and expenditures of the Street Lighting 
and Paving Services of the Highway Division for the 
year ending December 31, 1936. 

The maintenance expenditures of the division for 
the year are as follows: 

Lighting Service $977,117 00 

Paving Service 1,486,533 80 



Total $2,463,650 80 



Paving Service. 

Under the Public Works Program, chapter 464 of 
the Acts of 1935, the sum of $381,342.49 was expended. 
This work consisted of the resurfacing of fifty-five 
streets with "Type E" pavement in the various dis- 
tricts of the city. 

From the "Highways, Making of," loans there was 
expended $36,592.03. The work done under this ap- 
propriation consisted of the construction of three 
streets built by contract. 

In addition to the regular work of the Paving Service 
in connection with construction and maintenance of 
the public streets throughout the city a very consider- 
able amount of work was done by the Works Progress 
Administration. 

The work undertaken, completed and now under way 
by the Works Progress Administration Forces covers 
street surfacing, the designing and construction of 
retaining walls, city lot grading, the grading of two 



50 City Document No. 24. 

hundred and twenty-four streets, and the laying of 
macadam penetration in these streets, paving of public 
alleys, the grading of sidewalks, and a protection for 
the sidewalks by laying a so-called hip gutter at the 
curb. 

A field survey of the city is still under way whereby 
the private ways of the city are to be located, de- 
scribed and listed for charting and marking, and the 
erection of private way street signs has been done by 
the Federal Forces. 

In connection with the Federal Work, projects have 
been carried out for the care and sharpening of tools, 
and the maintenance of yards for storage and distribu- 
tion of materials. 

For snow removal during the season of 1936 the sum. 
of $798,734.45 was expended. 

Lighting Service. 

On Bennington street. East Boston, forty-three 1,000 
candle power lamps were installed, and on Huntington 
Avenue Overpass in Roxbury twenty-two 1,000 candle 
power lamps were installed. All posts on both these 
installations were of the concrete type. 

A total of twenty-three arc and 1,500 candle power 
lamps were installed throughout the various sections 
of the city. 

The following installation of smaller types of lamps 
was made in addition to the above : 

Fifteen 600 candle power lamps. 
Fifteen 250 candle power lamps. 
Thirty-three 80 candle power lamps. 



Respectfully, 



Joshua Atwood, 
Division Engineer. 



Public Works Department.

Man Power. 

The graph shows the decrease in the number of 
city laborers employed in the Sanitary Division, 
which fell during the year 1936 from 519 to 483. 

We are still trying to operate with the assistance of 
Welfare men, but as can be seen from the chart the 
year 1936 shows no improvement. 

At the beginning of the year these men averaged 800 
per week but by the middle of the year the number 
had fallen to about 500 per week. Then by requiring 
an extra day's work from these men the figure rose to 
about 775. It fell to an all-time low in November of 
470, rising to 540 at the end of the year. 

This shortage of man power, unless augmented by a 
reasonable increase in the number of city laborers, 
together with a considerable increase in the number of 
Welfare laborers furnished, will result in street con- 
ditions becoming steadily worse. 

On account of the widely fluctuating man power 
comparisons of performance as well as of costs continue 
to be without value. 

The 1936 expenditures show a decrease from 1935 of 
$114,788.61 ; S21,660 of this decrease is due to lower prices 
of the contracts. 

The pay rolls on account of loss in personnel show a 
drop of about $56,000. 

The remainder of this decrease is due to miscellaneous 
savings. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Adolph J. Post, 

Division Engineer.

APPENDIX D. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF 
THE SEWER DIVISION. 



Boston, January 2, 1937. 

To the Commissioner of Public Works. 

Dear Sir, — I submit herewith statement of the 
activities and expenditures of the Sewer Division for 
the year ending December 31, 1936. 

There were built by contract, day labor, private 
parties and by the city under P. W. A. and W. P. A. 
supervision, 4.93 miles of common sewers and surface 
drains throughout the city. 

After deducting 0.23 mile of sewers and surface drains, 
rebuilt or abandoned, the net increase for 1936 is 4.70 
miles, which, added to the existing 1,172.17 miles of 
common sewers and surface drains and 30.93 miles of 
intercepting sewers, makes a grand total of 1,207.80 miles 
of common and intercepting sewers (and surface drains) 
belonging to the City of Boston and under the care of 
the Sewer Division on January 1, 1937. 

There were 280 catch-basins built or rebuilt and 54 
abandoned or removed during the year, making a net 
gain of 226 catch-basins and a grand total of 21,484 
catch-basins under the care of the Sewer Division on 
January 1, 1937. 

The sewerage works built during 1936 are listed in 
detail on the subsequent pages of this report. 

Respectfully, 

George W. Dakin, 
Division Engineer, Sewer Division.

APPENDIX E. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF 
THE WATER DIVISION. 



Boston, January 2, 1937. 
To the Commissioner of Public Works: 

I respectfully submit the following report of the 
activities of the Water Division, operations and expend- 
itures, for the fiscal year ending December 31, 1936: 

The Engineering Branch of the division was engaged 
in the extension and improvement of the distribution 
system, most of the work being 
W. P. A. forces under the general 
division's regular engineering and 
Pipe was purchased mainly with money supplied by the 
Federal Emergency Relief Administration and the funds 
of the Water Division were used to supply cast-iron 
specials, gates, hydrants, lead, boxes, etc. A total of 
49,938 feet of pipe were either laid or relaid, of which 
the W. P. A. forces performed 44,700 feet of pipe laying 
varying in size from 6-inch to 24-inch, inclusive, the 
remainder being performed by the department forces 
or private contractors engaged by the Water Division. 

In district the extension of water mains laid were: 



performed by the 
supervision of the 
inspection forces.

8-inch and 12-inch pipe. 



90 City Document No. 24. 

Larch street, Brighton, 417 feet 12-inch relaid with 12-inch pipe. 
Academy Hill road, Hobart street and Parsons street, Brighton, 
1,085 feet 6-inch relaid with 12-inch pipe. 

The regular work of the Distribution Branch, con- 
sisting of installation of new services and fire pipes, 
repairing of leaks, caring for complaints, shutting off 
and letting on of water, freeing of stoppages in service 
pipes, etc., was performed in such a manner and at 
such periods as to cause minimum delay and incon- 
venience to applicants for water, water takers and the 
general public. 

A tremendous increase in the amount of the work 
performed was occasioned by the laying out of new 
streets with the resultant regulating of gate boxes, 
shut-off frames and covers, hydrants, services and the 
installation of new services on the relaying work by 
the W. P. A. forces. The machine shop and plumbing 
shop were forced to handle all the drilling and connect- 
ing of service pipes occasioned by the above-mentioned 
forces in addition to the regular work carried on in 
these shops, such as the assembling and machining of 
gates, valves and hydrants. 

Respectfully submitted, 

D. M. Sullivan, 

Division Engineer.

REPORT OF THE BOSTON AND CAMBRIDGE 
BRIDGES COMMISSION. 



Boston, January 2, 1937. 
To the Honorable the Mayor. 

Sir, — As Commissioner for the City of Boston, I 
respectfully submit herewith the annual report of the 
Boston and Cambridge Bridges Commission for the 
year ending December 31, 1936. 

The commission is composed of two members, one 
appointed by the Mayor of the City of Boston and the 
other by the Mayor 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 : 

Cottage Farm, Longfellow and Prison Point. 

As there is no separate appropriation made for the 
City of Boston's portion of the expenses of this com- 
mission, 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, 1936, was $5,069.28. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. J. Carven, 
Commissioner for the City of Boston.
