ANNUAL REPORT 



PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT 



YEAR ENDING DECEMBER 31, 1940. 



Boston, January 2, 1941. 

Hon. Maurice J. Tobin, 

Mayor of the City of Boston. 
Dear Mr. Mayor, — In compliance with the pro- 
visions of Section 24 of chapter 3 of the Revised Ordi- 
nances of 1925, I respectfully submit the Annual 
Report of the Public Works Department for the year 
ending December 31, 1940. 

Organization. 

The department, in existence since February 1, 1911, 
was created under the provisions of chapter 9 of the 
Ordinances of 1910. There are five divisions, namely, 
Bridge and Ferry, Highway, Sanitary, Sewer, and 
Water, each under the direct supervision of a division 
engineer. 

Receipts, Expenditures, Personnel. 

The total budgetary expenditures for the year were 
$7,315,477.26. The deficit resulting from the opera- 
tion of the Sumner Tunnel amounted to $255,525.23, 
which is §59,520.38 less than the deficit incurred in the 



2 City Document No. 24. 

previous year, and $182,343.68 less than the deficit for 
the year 1937, which was the last year of the previous 
administration. The total revenue collected at the 
tunnel was $960,384.66. 

The Water Division for the third successive year 
showed a surplus of $418,454.34, making a total sur- 
plus of $1,830,635.34 for the three years of the present 
administration. The deficit for the year 1937 amounted 
to $54,399.27 and the total deficit for the seven years 
previous to the start of the present administration was 
$702,390.94. The total water collections amounted to 
$4,781,638.74. 

The budgetary expenditure made in connection with 
the operation of the East Boston Ferry was $222,253.83, 
while the revenue receipts amounted to $24,862.07. 
The resulting deficit of $197,391.76 represents the 
lowest deficit of the past ten years. 

As the result of the issuance of street permits, the 
department received $17,306.64 in revenue and the 
total department revenue from all sources amounted to 
$6,019,268.45. 

As of December 31, there were 2,206 employees in 
the department. This represents a loss of 103 
employees during the year due to deaths, resignations, 
retirements, etc. 

Activities, Etc. 

The worst snow storm in the history of the depart- 
ment occurred on February 14 and 15. 

According to the official Weather Bureau report, 
the storm started at 3.18 p. m. on the 14th. At the 
outset, the storm had all the appearances of a blizzard; 
fine particles of snow driven by a wind of gale velocity. 
In view of this, the Weather Bureau at the East Boston 
airport was called at about 4 p. m. to find out if there 
was any change in the early forecasts, which did not 
predict a big storm. The attendant, even at that 
hour, reported that they did not expect over three or 
four inches of snow. Despite this report, however, all 
city employees, who normally finished their work day 
at 4.30, were told to report back at 7 p. m. Some of 
these employees operate the 45 city plows that are 
used for plowing in the City Proper and the others 
supervise the plowing work done by the 180 contractors' 
trucks that are used for plowing in the suburban areas. 

All contractors assigned to plowing work were ordered 



Public Works Department. 3 

out at 5 p. m. and 92 per cent of them had actually 
started to plow by 8 p. m., at which time there were 
only 3^ inches of snow on the ground. Ordinarily, this 
depth of snow would have presented no problem. The 
progress was most discouraging, however, due to parked 
cars on the sides of the streets and cars abandoned right 
in the centers of the roadways. Many of the cars that 
were abandoned were disabled, due to the driving snow 
sifting in through the radiator grilles and through the 
openings in the hood and wetting the ignition system. 
We had the same difficulty with our own trucks that 
were ploughing. At one time, 18 of the 45 city plows 
were disabled because of wet ignitions or because they 
were stuck in snow banks where they had to drive to 
pass stalled passenger cars and trucks. 

As stated before, only 3| inches of snow had fallen up 
to 8 p. m. The greatest depth of snow in any one hour, 
according to the Weather Bureau, fell between 10 and 
11 o'clock at night; the heaviest snowfall occurring be- 
tween the hours of 8 p. m. and midnight. The wind 
reached a maximum of 51 miles per hour at 8.54 p. m., 
with an average velocity of 40 miles per hour for the 
entire storm. 

It may be seen, therefore, that the storm was most 
severe during the busiest time of the day from a traffic 
standpoint. Motorists going home from work, to 
theatres, etc., were wholly unprepared for a storm of 
the intensity or severity of the one encountered. 

At no time during the storm did the wind abate to 
any marked degree and at no time during the storm did 
the type of flakes vary to any extent. Fine flakes driven 
by gale force made it impossible to make any headway 
plowing. According to the Weather Bureau, 10.6 inches 
of snow fell up to midnight, and 3.4 inches from midnight 
until 10.20 on the morning of the 15th, at which time the 
storm ended. 

The department officials realized at 10.30 p. m. that 
the storm was a most unusual one with a possibility of 
its developing, which it eventually did, into the worst 
storm in the history of the department. The truck 
plows were making but little headway in the suburban 
districts and in the intown district. The only piece of 
equipment that could plow was a bulldozer and we 
started calling up various contractors for the hire of 
tractor type bulldozers. We were not successful in get- 
ting bulldozers as the contractors were unable to trans- 



4 City Document No. 24. 

port them to the various locations and they were not 
keen on coming out on such a night. 

As it was impossible to make any headway in plowing 
the residential streets, the plows were assigned to the 
main highways throughout the night in an effort to keep 
them open. Some headway was made on those streets 
after all plowing operations were concentrated on them. 
At least, many of the main arteries were open to traffic 
on Thursday morning and they never would have been 
if we had not concentrated on them. 

One might reasonably say, "Well, the trouble was that 
your plows were not powerful enough for that type of a 
storm". In answer to such a statement, I submit the 
following: 

The Boston Elevated Railway Company owns fifty 
of the most powerful types of plows used in this state. 
They are attached to trucks of a 7 to 10- ton capacity 
which are a combination sanding and plowing unit. 
They cost from $12,000 to $14,000 apiece. An official 
of that company called me by telephone at 3.30 a. m. 
on Thursday morning and stated that his plows were 
all bogged and stuck in various locations throughout 
the city. They were unable to keep bus lines or street 
car lines opened. He told me that three of his plows 
were stuck in a traffic jam in Central square, Cam- 
bridge, caused, apparently, by disabled and abandoned 
passenger cars and trucks. He said, further, that it 
was the worst storm they ever encountered and that 
everything was at a standstill. He also told me that 
he received permission, that night, from the General 
Manager to purchase another Walter Snow Fighter 
(price approximately $14,000) and this truck also got 
stuck in Central square on the way from the showroom, 
making a total of four of their expensive, powerful 
plows stuck in Central square. If plows of this type 
were unable to make headway, one could not reason- 
ably expect this department, with its lighter plowing 
equipment, to have all streets opened for the flow of 
vehicular traffic in time for the opening of business on 
Thursday morning. It was a night full of insurmount- 
able obstacles and I am convinced that no matter what 
kind of plowing equipment we had working, the condi- 
tions on Thursday morning would not have been any 
better than they were. We put every available man 
and piece of equipment to work on Wednesday night 



Public Works Department. 5 

and Thursday morning in an effort to open the high- 
ways. No one could have done better, under the 
circumstances. 

At 11 o'clock Wednesday night, I personally called 
every snow removal contractor and told him to be 
ready to start to work the first thing in the morning. 
The time of the day, on Thursday, that each contractor 
dumped his first load of snow was as follows :

Ward General Contracting Company 

J. J. Deveney

3.12 p. m. 
7.30 p. m. 
4.00 p. m. 
3.15 p. m. 
1.30 p. m. 
5.00 p. m. 
3.12 p. m. 
2.55 p. m. 



These contractors were just as anxious to start early 
as we were anxious to have them start, but the fact 
remains that the average one did not start until ap- 
proximately 4 p. m., despite my notifying them the 
night before. There were several reasons for the late 
starting times, among them being that the contractors 
were unable to get trucks from outlying towns and the 
roads were impassable in the towns and cities adjacent 
to Boston. Many truck owners were unable to get 
their trucks out of their garages until late Thursday, 
and many of the contractors had trouble in arranging 
for the transportation of their mechanical snow loaders. 
In an ordinary storm, these loaders can be transported 
without any difficulty by means of a trailer but it was 
impossible, due to impassable roads caused by aban- 
doned cars and trucks, to use a trailer until Thursday 
afternoon. 

Although the contractors were delayed until Thurs- 
day afternoon on snow removal work, city forces were 
actually engaged on the removal work on Washington 
Street in front of the Boston Post building at 4 a. m., 
Thursday morning. A crew of laborers and three 
trucks were assigned to that location, in order to allow 
trucks to be loaded that carry copies of the Post to the 
distribution points. Two city-owned snow loaders, 
manned by city employees, left the Albany street 
yard at 3.30 a. m. and were assigned on Washington 
street at Summer to start on snow removal. They 



6 City Document No. 24. 

arrived at their destination at 5 a. m. and actual opera- 
tions started at that time, 1 loader working up Wash- 
ington street toward State and the other down Wash- 
ington street toward Summer. The operators of these 
loaders were fully exposed to the elements in their 
trip from Albany street to Washington street. In 
fact, I observed one of the operators still running the 
loader on Court street at 3 a. m. on Friday morning; 
having worked at least 24 hours steadily under the 
most adverse conditions imaginable. Incidents like 
this were common, however. I have the greatest 
respect and admiration for the foremen, supervisors, 
and the rank and file of the employees of this depart- 
ment for their devotion to public duty, as exemplified 
by the work they did to fight the overwhelming forces 
of nature which resulted in this severe snow storm. 
Many of the district foremen, some of whom are ad- 
vanced in years, worked tirelessly and to the point of 
exhaustion. They did everything that it was possible 
for men to do under the conditions that prevailed. 
Most of the foremen had the streets of their districts 
opened to vehicular traffic by Saturday night; in fact, 
all of the streets in the Hyde Park district were opened 
by Friday night and the streets in the city proper 
opened by Thursday night. All streets in the city 
were opened not later than Sunday night. To accom- 
plish this, it became necessary for us to hire every 
available bulldozer, not only in Metropolitan Boston, 
but in the state. We secured bulldozers from as far 
off as the town of Huntington, which is in the western 
part of the state. Others came from Framingham, 
Natick, and Weymouth. Through the cooperation of 
the Boston Post a news article was inserted asking all 
persons who had bulldozers for hire to contact the 
department. Besides this, we had two employees on 
the telephone all day Thursday and Friday, calling 
various contractors and owners of equipment for the 
purpose of hiring bulldozers. That we were successful 
in obtaining a sufficient number is attested to by the 
fact that we hired 36 of them varying in horse-power 
from 35 to 140. We had the largest bulldozers in 
the state plowing our streets. We obtained them as 
soon as it was possible to do so ; no expense being spared 
to open the streets. 



The policy, adopted by the present administration, 
of extending the contract system in districts where the 



Public Works Department. 7 

collection of rubbish and garbage was being done by 
City forces, was continued. Bids for the collection of 
the above-referenced waste materials in the Back Bay 
and part of the Roxbury district (called Dudley) were 
opened on December 23, and the contracts were awarded 
on December 30. A most progressive step was made 
by the department, insofar as the collection of waste 
materials is concerned, when contracts were awarded 
for the year 1941, without publicly advertising for bids, 
to the same contractors who did the collection work in 
the various districts in 1940; the contract prices being 
the same as those paid in 1940. In contracts of this 
kind, price is of secondary consideration, as the service 
rendered by the contractor to the general public should 
be of prime importance when considering awarding 
such contracts. The work of the contractors in 1940 
was most satisfactory and, in view of this, the depart- 
ment was justified, in the best interests of the public, 
to award the contracts for 1940 without publicly adver- 
tising for bids, particularly in view of the fact that the 
prices for which the collection contractors were doing 
the work were received, in December of 1939, as the 
result of publicly advertised bids. The department 
continued the policy, adopted by the present adminis- 
tration, of modernizing its street cleaning equipment, as 
evidenced by the purchase of 3 mechanical street 
sweeping machines. 

As a result of W. P. A. projects, the department con- 
structed 27 miles of streets, 43,649.38 feet of sewers and 
surface drains. A project was started providing for 
the demolition of the stable at the Highland street yard 
and the erection, in its place, of a modern garage suit- 
able for storing approximately 50 trucks. A project 
was also started which provides for the construction, at 
the Western avenue yard, of a modern office and storage 
building for the Water, Paving, Sanitary, and Sewer 
Services of the Brighton district. At the close of the 
year, satisfactory progress was being made on the two 
latter-referenced projects. A project was started in 
December for the construction of a pedestrian overpass 
across Old Colony avenue and Columbia road adjacent 
to the Old Harbor Village Housing Project. This over- 
pass will provide a safe means of access for the hundreds 
of mothers and children residing in Old Harbor Village 
who have occasion to go to and from the Columbus 
Stadium and the beaches that are located along the 
strandway. In order to provide for the safe passage of 



8 City Document No. 24. 

baby carriages, ramps, at a grade of approximately 10 
per cent, have been constructed instead of stairways. 
At the end of the year, satisfactory progress was being 
made, and it is anticipated that the overpass will be 
completed in the summer of 1941. 

After the American Legion parade, which was held 
on Tuesday, September 24, the department forces 
collected 208.4 tons of debris, consisting of ticker tape, 
torn telephone books, cardboard and manila boxes, etc., 
from the streets in the intown section. The employees 
of the Street Cleaning Service deserve special commen- 
dation for the efficient and expeditious job that they 
did in removing the debris from the streets. The 
parade was over at about 9.30 p. m. on Thursday, and 
the streets of the city were completely cleaned by "a.m., 
on Friday morning. 

For the first time in the history of the department a 
registration period for emergency snow shovelers was 
held during the week of November 18. During this 
week, all citizens and voters of the city who desired 
work during the winter on snow removal, were required 
to register at the district paving yards. That the 
registration system was a success is evidenced by the 
10,249 persons who registered during that week. After 
the registrant's name had been certified, a so-called 
work card was sent to his home, containing his name, 
address, and location to which he was to report if needed 
for snow shoveling work. This system, unquestionably, 
will eliminate all of the weaknesses of the so-called 
"button" system in effect heretofore. 

Among other improvements adopted by the depart- 
ment during the current year concerning snow removal 
and plowing work are the following: 

1. The establishing of a special contract snow 
removal area in the heart of the rental business 
section of the City Proper, which will include the 
so-called "ladder" streets. This area extends from 
Broadway to Brattle street and from Tremont 
street on the westerly side to Harrison avenue and 
Devonshire street on the easterly side. Formerly 
snow removal in this area was done almost entirely 
by day labor forces comprised of regular city 
employees and emergency workers. 

2. The insertion into the contract document of 
provisions with sufficient "teeth" in them to assure 
proper prosecution of the work by the contractor. 



Public Works Department. 9 

To this end, provisions were included that will 
require the contractor to pay liquidated damages in 
the event that he defaults on the contract or fails 
to do the work in accordance with its specifications. 

3. The insertion into the contract document of 
provisions which will give to the city better control 
of the contractors' operations, thereby allowing for 
the correlation of the activities of all the con- 
tractors. Hereafter, the contractor will not be 
allowed to remove snow from any street unless a 
written order to that effect has been issued to him 
by an authorized representative of the city. 

4. The drafting of a bill, to be acted on by the 
incoming Legislature, authorizing the city to award 
contracts for a five-year period for the removal of 
snow. 

5. The construction, at an estimated cost of 
$24,000, of a tidewater dump at the site of the 
abandoned wharf of the North Ferry, at the foot 
of Battery street. 

6. The use of city employees only on contract 
snow removal work in the capacity of inspectors 
and checkers. 

7. The requiring of all city employees assigned 
to the work to attend instruction classes that 
were held from November 1 to November 15. In 
addition to receiving verbal instructions, written 
instructions were also issued to each employee. 

8. The establishment in each contract area of 
an Accounting Unit to compile and summarize 
reports and to do all the office clerical work in 
connection with the contract specifications. 

9. The preparing of a bill, to be submitted to 
the incoming Legislature, providing the Police De- 
partment with authority to order taken off the 
streets and placed in storage, at the expense of the 
owners or operators, parked motor vehicles which 
interfere with snow removal activities. 

Appended hereto are reports submitted by the divi- 
sion engineers relative to the activities of their divisions, 
as well as tables containing financial and statistical 
information. 

Respectfully submitted, 

George G. Hyland, 
Commissioner of Public Works.

The above does not include certain expenditures for 
construction work for other divisions and departments, 
which work was supervised by the engineers of this 
division. 

Under orders of the Department of Public Utilities, 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts, schedules of tolls and 
charges for the use of the Sumner Traffic Tunnel, be- 
tween Boston Proper and East Boston, were approved, 
covering the year 1940. 

The city has been operating only one ferry, the 
so-called "South Ferry," since early in 1933, with the 
Boston terminus at Eastern avenue and the East Boston 
terminus at Lewis street. 

A change of boat operation was put into effect April 
29, 1938. This calls for a 30-minute boat schedule 
daily, starting from East Boston at 6 a. m and 6.15 a. m. 
from Boston; this boat continues to operate until 
10 p. m. daily. A second boat starts from East Boston 
at 7.15 a. m., permitting of a lo-minute schedule, and 
continues until 11 a. m. At 2 p. m. it resumes opera- 
tion and remains in operation until 6.15 p. m. The 
second boat does not operate on Sundays or holidays. 



20 City Document No. 24. 

The following Federal Relief Projects were sponsored 
by this division during the year: 

Works Progress Administration. 

Project 15778 (18869). 
Legal History and Cost Records of City of Boston Bridges. 
The reasons for this project were given in the 1938 
report. The work was supposed to be finished in 1939, 
but as the compiling of this histo^ involved con- 
siderable time and work, the project was extended under 
a new number (18869). The work was completed 
September 19, 1940. 

Highway Division Project. 
Acting under directions of his Honor the Mayor in a 
communication to the Commissioner of Public Works, 
dated May 21, 1938, a committee, consisting of Messrs. 
George G. Hyland of the Survey Committee (now Com- 
missioner of Public Works), Division Engineer William 
T. Morrissey of the Highway Division and Division 
Engineer Thomas H. Sexton of the Bridge and Ferry 
Division, was appointed by the Mayor to study all 
bridges in the city and make such recommendations 
as would tend to eliminate the hazards existing on 
bridges. Mr. Thomas H. Sexton was elected chairman 
of this committee. Safety curbs were installed on 
Dover Street Bridge in 1938; on Dorchester avenue, 
Chelsea South, Chelsea North, Chelsea Viaduct, in 1939, 
and on Prison Point, Warren, Charlestown and Broad- 
way Bridges in 1940. The city's share of this work is 
paid from Item H, Highway Division. 

Project 20603. 

Dorchester Avenue Bridge, Over Fort Point Channel, 
Paving District No. 8, Boston. Repairing and 
Redecking Two Draw Spans. 
This project was approved in 1939 and was for the 
removal of all timber of roadway, except that part 
maintained by the Boston Elevated Railway Company, 
replacing angle-iron seats, scaling and painting steel 
work and replacing deck with new lumber (except that 
part maintained by the Boston Elevated Railway Com- 
pany). The work was completed in September of this 
year. 



Public Works Department. 21 

Project 22323. 

Construction of a Footbridge at Old Harbor Village and 
Reconstruction of Blue Hill Avenue and Everett 
Street Bridges. 

Upon approval of this project by the W. P. A., work 
was started December 12, 1940. The average number 
of men employed is 50. In 1940 the city spent on this 
project $6,569.48. It is expected that all work under 
this project will be completed about August 1, 1941. 

Project 21966. 

Renovating ami Improving Sumner Tunnel. 

This project is for electrical wiring, painting, water- 
proofing and other rehabilitation work throughout the 
tunnel, approaches, and vent buildings. Upon approval 
of this project by the W. P. A., work started October 15, 
1940. The average number of employees is 52. Dur- 
ing this year the city spent $9,448.49 on this project. 
It is expected that all work will be completed about 
June 1, 1941. 

Police Department Project — Police Station 8. 

This project was for the building of a covered basin 
to house police launches and a marine railway to take 
out vessels when necessary. The work on the shelter 
basin was completed this year. The work on the 
marine railway was started this year and will be com- 
pleted in 1941. Plans were prepared and work super- 
vised by this division for the Police Department. 

Proposed Project. 

In October, 1939, a project was submitted to the 
W. P. A., for work at the South Ferry drops, headhouse 
and meter room, Boston and East Boston sides; repair- 
ing fire damage, painting and repairing, rebuilding drop 
suspension and floor system. This was approved and 
work started, which work continued until all available 
money was expended. A supplementary project was 
written up this year. We expect this supplementary 
project will be approved. Upon approval work will be 
resumed and will be completed in 1941. 

The more important works undertaken during the 
past year in the Bridge Service, in addition to W. P. A. 



22 City Document No. 24. 

projects, were the placing of high curbs on Summer 
Street Bridge, over Fort Point Channel; Summer Street 
Bridge, over Reserved Channel and Meridian Street 
Bridge, over Chelsea Creek; cleaning and scaling the 
Massachusetts Avenue Bridge, over the Boston & 
Albany Railroad; repairing Beacon Street, Dartmouth 
Street and Brookline Avenue Bridges; constructing a 
snow dump at the North Ferry, Boston; repairing hull, 
etc., of ferryboat " Daniel A. MacCormack " and 
"Charles C. Donoghue" and repairing machinery, etc., 
of ferryboat "Daniel A. MacCormack." 

Bridge Service. 

Beacon Street, Dartmouth Street and Brookline Avenue, 
over the Boston & Albany Railroad. 

Owing to the erosive action of the flue gases of loco- 
motives the steel and concrete of the under side of the 
decks of these bridges required minor renewals and 
repairs. For some time past, pieces of concrete mask- 
ing of the superstructures occasionally dropped to the 
roadbed. 

On September 27, 1940, the Mayor approved a 
contract with Maurice M. Devine Company, Inc., to 
make the necessary repairs. Under this contract, 169.1 
cubic feet of concrete masking was removed and 224 
pounds of rods and lugs and 231 square feet of wire- 
mesh secured in place, incidental to guniting; 119 
bags of cement were used for gunite. Additional 
blast guards of wrought iron were installed as directed. 
Work on this contract was completed on November 26, 
1940, at a cost of $2,417.18. 

Massachusetts Avenue Bridge, over Boston & Albany 
Railroad. 

Due to the natural deterioration of the steel of this 
bridge it was realized that extensive repairs would be 
necessary in the near future. In order to make a com- 
prehensive inspection so that a rational estimate of the 
necessary work to be done would be possible, a thorough 
cleaning of the steel work was required. 

On July 9, 1940, the Mayor approved a contract with 
Maurice M. Devine Company, to chip, scrape and 
wire brush all steel work. Work under this contract 
was completed on August 14, 1940, at a cost of $1,776. 



Public Works Department. 23 

Safety Curbs. 

Continuing the program for the installation of safety 
curbs on the city bridges, in an effort to reduce the 
number of automobile accidents involving the going 
overboard of the vehicle, the Mayor approved a con- 
tract on February 2, 1940, with Baker & Co., to install 
high curbs of various types on Summer Street Bridge 
over the Reserved Channel, Summer Street Bridge, 
over Fort Point Channel and Meridian Street Bridge, 
over Chelsea Creek. 

Under this contract 5,203.7 linear feet of curbs were 
installed, of which 4,636.3 feet are of wood, 544.4 feet 
are of a patented spring steel type and 23 feet are of 
concrete. Since the installation has been completed 
there have been incidents which have demonstrated 
the value of these curbs. 

Work under this contract was completed on April 18, 
1940, at a total cost of $9,668.49. 

Highway Division. 

Snow Dump. 

Since the discontinuance of the ferry service at the 
North Ferry on April 29, 1933, the headhouse and the 
north slip on the Boston side has remained idle except 
for a short time when the Police Department used the 
slip for some boats and maintained a small force of 
men in the headhouse. In 1939 a W. P. A. Project 
was started on the demolition of these wooden structures. 

With this wide and free approach to the water front 
it seemed that here was an excellent location for a 
snow dump to expedite the disposal of snow in con- 
nection with snow removal contracts in winter. On 
December 2, 1940, the Mayor approved a contract 
with the W. H. Ellis Company to build a wooden pier 
from the foot of Battery street out to the Old Harbor 
line. 

Work started at once but there was not much progress 
made before the end of the year. 

Day Labor Force. 

The day labor force patched and replaced deck 
sheathing, headers and sidewalk planking on the various 
bridges; repaired platforms, refastened treads; cleaned 



24 City Document No. 24. 

and painted drawhouses and shelter houses; made 
repairs to drawhouses and controller houses; added to 
and deducted from counterweights; repaired steps; 
removed snow and ice from bridges and sanded same; 
repaired piers, painted fences and gates; did general 
carpenter work and painting and made mechanical 
repairs, etc.; repaired wood block paving, refastened 
treads on various bridges; repaired and rebuilt gates 
at various bridges; repaired floats, built and repaired 
sand boxes, rebuilt coal bins at various bridges; re- 
paired boats, set glass at various drawhouses; painted 
lockers at drawhouses; made miscellaneous small repairs 
at various bridges, etc. 

The maintenance force, together with welfare men, 
cleaned the bridge sidewalks and steps in the intown 
areas of snow and other refuse during the entire year. 
Electrical and machinery maintenance was taken care 
of by the electricians and machinists. 

Another duty of this division during the winter 
months was the supervising and inspecting of snow 
loading and removal from Areas Nos. 3 and 10, in 
common with other divisions of the Department. This 
work was done under contract. 

In the course of the year part of the activities of the 
office force were taken up in work for other divisions 
and departments of the city. While these efforts, 
spread over the entire period, did not require a con- 
siderable amount of time, the nature of the work was 
of an advisory and investigating nature. 

Miscellaneous Work. 

Meridian Street Bridge. — As a result of a public 
hearing held in September 1939, the City of Boston 
was officially notified by the War Department, in a 
letter dated April 13, 1940, to provide a draw span 
at this bridge affording a horizontal clearance of 175 
feet; the work to be completed within three years from 
date of notice. The city protested this order and 
another public hearing was held by the War Depart- 
ment on December 17, 1940, to determine whether the 
above order should be modified. As yet no final action 
has been taken. 

Longfellow Bridge. — By order of the Commissioner 
of Public Works, plans were drawn up for the High- 
way Division, with the intention of widening both 



Public Works Department.

roadways on the Boston approach and it is expected 
that this work will be started and completed in 1941. 

Broadway Bridge, over Boston and Albany Railroad. — 
Studies were made and plans prepared for rebuilding 
this bridge. 

Parsons Street Bridge. — Plans were made for a foot- 
way under the railroad at this location. 

Tollgate Way Footbridge. — Studies were made for an 
underpass to replace the present overhead bridge at 
Tollgate Way, Forest Hills.

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 "Daniel A. MacCormaek." 
Incidental to the annual expiration of the United 
States Ship's papers, under which the boat is permitted 
to operate, it was necessary that the boat be taken out 
of water for an inspection of the under water body by 
the United States Steam Boat Inspection Service. 
While it has been the practice of the city under these 
circumstances, to let a general contract for repairs to 
the hull, superstructure and machinery, due to the 
few plants where the boat could be taken on a railway 
or dry dock compared with the many plants equipped 
to complete marine repairs, etc., it w r as deemed advis- 
able to call first for bids for such work as required 
having the hull out of water and later for such other 
work, including superstructure and machinery. 

On April 30, 1940, the Mayor approved a contract 
with the Quincy Dry Dock and Yacht Corporation, for 
repairing the hull and doing incidental work which 
required having the boat out of water. The work done 
included cleaning and painting the hull, repairing the 
rudders and main stuffing boxes, renewing certain 



26 City Document No. 24. 

plates and structural work inboard and repairing the 
propellers by electric welding. Work under this con- 
tract was completed on May 21, 1940, at a cost of 
$4,001.50. 

On June 14, 1940, the Mayor approved a contract 
with the Quincy Dry Dock and Yacht Corporation, to 
make repairs to the machinery and superstructure of 
the vessel. This work included the cleaning and paint- 
ing of the superstructure, general overhauling and 
adjusting of the main engines and auxiliaries, installing 
of a new water end of the condenser (the city furnished 
the new parts) the reboring of one high pressure cylinder 
of the main engines, the rebabbitting of four main 
crank-pin boxes and four main bearings and the truing 
up of four piston rods and valve stems of the main 
engines. Work under this contract was completed on 
July 12, 1940, at a cost of $6,060. 

Ferryboat " Charles C. Donoghue." 

To complete such repairs and work as might be 
required by the United States Steam Boat Inspection 
Service for the issuing of the necessar} r ship's papers, 
the Mayor on October 15, 1940, approved a contract 
with the Quincy Dry Dock and Yacht Corporation 
for making certain repairs to the hull and machinery. 

Under the contract the ship was cleaned and painted, 
two rudders and two main stuffing boxes were repaired, 
the pitted areas of the propellers were repaired by the 
arc welding process, three crank-pin boxes and four 
main bearing brasses were rebabitted and the main 
engines and auxiliaries were overhauled and adjusted. 

Work under this contract was completed on Novem- 
ber 22, 1940, at a cost of §9,354.50. 

Department Force. 

During the year machinists, carpenters, painters, 
riggers and electricians, who are included in the per- 
sonnel of the Ferry Service, made all repairs possible 
to the plant to the extent of equipment at their dis- 
posal. This work consisted mainly of minor repairs 
to the machinery on the boats, repairs to ferry bridge 
machinery, ferry bridge roadways and headhouse repairs 
in general.

is done after 12 o'clock midnight and with no inter- 
ference to traffic.

key boxes are in good working condition and are con- 
stantly under supervision at all times.

has been installed from the Boston Ventilation Building 
to the Boston Plaza and Administration Building.

replaced as needed. 

Personnel. — During 1940 there was the following 
changes in personnel:

One electrician-operator, appointed August 1940. 
One tollman-guard, transferred September 1940. 
One tollman-guard, resigned July 1940.

Yours respectfully, 

Thomas H. Sexton,

APPENDIX B. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF THE 
HIGHWAY DIVISION. 



Boston, January 2, 1941. 

To the Commissioner of Public Works: 

Dear Sir, — I submit the following report of the 
operations and expenditures of the Highway Division 
for the year ending December 31, 1940. 

The Paving Service Appropriation in the budget 
called for SI, 190, 321. There was an unexpended bal- 
ance of $24,707.10 from 1939, making a total appropria- 
tion of $1,215,028.10. The amount expended during 
the year was $1,634,608.28. During the year an ad- 
ditional appropriation of $445,314 was allowed, making 
a total appropriation for the year of $1,660,342.10, 
leaving an unexpended balance of $25,733.82. Of this 
unexpended balance, $22,962.31 belonged to Relief 
Projects, Item H, and will be used during the year 
1941. The following is a summary of the Item H 
appropriation for 1940: 



Unexpended balance from 1939

Balance unexpended, 1940 


$22,962 31 



As of January 1, 1940, the regular employees num- 
bered 492 and on December 31, 1940, our personnel 
had decreased to 475. 

The amount of money taken in through the Permit 
Office of the Paving Service amounted to $17,306.64. 
There are now on file in the Permit Office 1,800 bonds 
in the amounts of one, three, four and twenty thousand 
dollars, covering the city against claims for damages, 
etc., through the use of permits. 



48 City Document No. 24. 

The regular force of the Paving Service was employed 
as usual in the maintenance of all public streets, resur- 
facing and patching macadam pavements, patching all 
permanent pavements such as asphalt, granite block, 
etc., and taking care of all gravel, brick and artificial 
.stone sidewalks. 

The snowstorm on Valentine's Day was very large 
but, despite the intensity of same, the work progressed 
fairly well. Considerable information was gleaned from 
this storm and a discussion by the Snow Removal 
Committee during the year has resulted in a great 
many changes being made in the snow plowing and 
removing arrangements which will prove of great 
value in future storms. A new registration system for 
the employment of emergency men was put in effect 
and proved to be very satisfactory. 

Work was continued this year by the Federal Works 
Progress forces, which continued the work of construc- 
tion and reconstruction of streets, construction of 
retaining walls, erection of a new office building and a 
sand hopper. 

The Highway Division went into the construction of 
a more permanent nature of pavement which shows 
less yardage done, but the character of the work is 
much more durable. 

Also the division has permanently constructed streets, 
with sidewalks, edgestones and roadway that were 
accepted by the Board of Street Commissioners and an 
assessment was made on the abutting owners for the 
city's contribution. Under this arrangement thirty- 
two new streets were constructed. 

During the year there has been approximately 27,030 
square yards of sheet asphalt pavement laid; 421,074 
square yards of bituminous concrete pavement laid; 
42,079 square yards of concrete pavement laid, and 
37,270 square yards of bituminous macadam pavement 
laid, making approximately 27 miles of roadway built 
and rebuilt. 

The following is some of the more important streets 
and work performed this year: 

The reconstruction of Tremont street, from Scollay 
square to Boylston street; the narrowing of the reserva- 
tion and the reconstruction of Massachusetts avenue, 
from Albany street to Columbus avenue; the cutting of 
the width of the sidewalks and the covering of the 
abandoned elevated tracks in Boylston street, from 



Public Works Department. 49 

Hemenway street to Massachusetts avenue; the remov- 
ing of the car track reservation in Blue Hill avenue, 
from American Legion Highway to beyond Charlotte 
street, to the center of the roadway and the building of 
two separate roadways for the flow of traffic; the recon- 
struction of one side of Tremont street, from Prentiss 
street to Camden street; the completion of the widening 
of Bussey street, from Walter street to South street; 
the reconstruction of Amory street, from School street 
to Minton street; the reconstruction of West Milton 
street, from Sprague street to the Dedham line. 

The work on Atlantic avenue is still progressing and 
will, no doubt, be completed in 1941. These are a few 
of the major highways that work was done on this year 
and which will prove of great benefit to vehicular traffic 
throughout the city. Work is also progressing in the 
housing areas in the construction of perimeter streets 
in these areas. Also a number of safety islands were 
built throughout the city and have proved of great 
benefit to pedestrians. Work also went ahead in the 
placing of high curbs on various bridges throughout the 
city. 

A new paving office, together with a large sand hopper, 
was built in the Dorchester District. This sand hopper 
holds approximately 1,400 tons of sand. The sand can 
be loaded into the trucks and this will be of great benefit 
to the city in the sanding of streets. 

In order that an idea of money spent for the cost of 
this work may be had please be advised as follows: 

Highway Division Expenditures: 

Labor $64,943 14 

Materials, equipment, heat, light, etc. . . 705,277 25 

W. P. A. Expenditures: 

Labor 2,136,359 47 

Materials, equipment, heat, light, etc. . . 355,551 92 

Grand total $3,262,131 78 

There are also in operation two white collar projects 
which call for a description of the various types of 
sidewalks in the city limits and also maps being drawn 
for snow removal by districts showing the location in 
selected areas of all public buildings, such as, hospitals, 
schools, fire stations, welfare and health units, libraries, 
churches, police stations, freight markets, theatres, 



50 City Document No. 24. 

hotels and all other important public buildings, housing 
people, freight and foodstuffs that involve the life and 
sustenance of the human being. 

Lighting Service. 

The Lighting Service Appropriation of the Highway 
Division called for $929,708. Out of this amount 
$925,469.83 was expended and $3,700 was transferred 
to the Paving Service, leaving an unexpended balance 
of $538.17.

City Proper; Minot street (2), Dorchester; Fenway (1), 
Longwood avenue (1), Roxbury; West Broadway (1),

During the year we changed the remaining 357 arc 
lamps of 1,500 candle power to 1,000 candle power 
Mazda type resulting in a very substantial saving. 

Petitions and requests for new lamps received from 
citizens and officials, also complaints relative to the 
lighting service, have been investigated and attended 
to. All streets in the underground district prescribed 
for the year have been inspected and necessary changes 
and additions have been made. 

Respectfully, 

William T. Morrissey, 

Division Engineer.

APPENDIX C. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF 
THE SANITARY DIVISION. 



Boston, January 2, 1941. 

To the Commissioner of Public Works. 

Dear Sir, — I submit herewith a statement of the 
activities and expenditures of the Sanitary Division 
for the year ending December 31, 1940: 

Maintenance expenditures $1,996,008 22 

Motor deficiency 35,152 36

— 61 

Total personnel January 1, 1941 682 

The 1940 budget expenditures, after making allowance 
for motor deficiency, were $66,378 less than in 1939. 
The decreases are shown as follows: 



Public Works Department.

Injured roll 


759 


Unused stock 


3,932 


W. P. A. . 


6,961 


Preventive street cleaning . 


5,817 



On the other hand, there were increases in the con- 
tract waste collection account amounting to $4,174, 
and an increase of $918 in pensions. 

The Elm Hill district (Roxbury), which was pre- 
viously done by day labor, was done by contract this 
year, which accounts, in part, for the increase in the 
contract waste collection, and the corresponding de- 
crease in the day labor waste collection account. The 
total charges for this Elm Hill district, amounted to 
$20,617, which included the contract price of $15,600. 

There were increases in waste collection contracts in 
East Boston, Charlestown, West Roxbury and Hyde 
Park, and decreases in the Dorchester and Brighton 
districts, resulting in a net decrease in the price of all 
the contracts, other than Elm Hill, which amounted to 
$336 over the previous year. 

There was a decrease in the welfare men in 1940, as 
compared with 1939, amounting to 22,386 man-days. 
This assistance in May reached a high point of over 
850 men per day. From that point to the end of the 
year, the number dropped rapidly to a point, at the 
end of the year, of about 260 men per day. This rapid 
falling-off coincided with the international situation in 
that large numbers of these men were absorbed by 
W. P. A. projects and private industry. 

The population for the year 1940 has been computed 
in a manner which agrees with the United States Decen- 
nial Census. 

During the 1940 American Legion Convention, special 
problems arose in matters of street cleaning, particu- 
larly after the parade, and this work was done in a 
manner which earned the approbation of all. 

Further progress in back-yard improvement, in the 
South End, was made by enlisting the aid of the children 
in that section of the city. Local civic units also lent 
their assistance, resulting in an improvement in street 
conditions. 



56 City Document No. 24. 

The following work was done by the W. P. A. : 
Street and Public Alley Cleaning Survey Project 
opened on August 15, 1940, employing 12 men and 7 
women. This project is compiling and assembling 
worthwhile information relative to street cleaning activ- 
ities and a standardization system of reporting such 
activity. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Adolph J. Post, 

Division Engineer.

APPENDIX D. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF THE 
SEWER DIVISION. 



Boston, January 2, 1941. 

To the Commissioner of Public Works. 

I submit herewith statement of the activities and 
expenditures of the Sewer Division for the year ending 
December 31, 1940. 

During the fiscal year 1940, there were built by con- 
tractors, day labor, private parties and by the city under 
P. W. A. and W. P. A. supervision 10.81 miles of com- 
mon sewers and surface drains throughout the city. 
After deducting 3.48 miles of sewers and surface drains, 
rebuilt or abandoned, the net increase for 1940 is 7.33 
miles, which added to the existing 1,203.07 miles of 
common sewers and surface drains and 30.93 miles of 
intercepting sewers, makes a grand total of 1,241.33 
miles of all sewers belonging to the City of Boston, and 
under the care of the Sewer Division on January 1,1941. 

There were 315 catch-basins built or rebuilt and 146 
abandoned or removed during the year, making a net 
gain of 169 catch-basins and a grand total of 22,218 
catch-basins under the care of the Sewer Division on 
January 1, 1941. 

Entrance fees to the amount of $3,030.24 have been 
deposited with the City Collector for collection from 
estates upon which no sewer assessments were ever paid, 
in accordance with Ordinances of 1910, chapter 9, 
section 10. 

975 permits have been issued, viz.: 375 to district 
foremen and contractors and 619 to drainlayers for re- 
pairing or laying new house drains. Inspectors from 
this office have personally inspected the work done 
under these drainlayers' permits. 

Plans for the assessments for estates for sewer con- 
struction have been furnished the Board of Street Com- 
missioners, representing 15,425.14 linear feet of sewers. 



64 City Document No. 24. 

773 complaints have been investigated and inspectors 
are instructed to report in writing in each case. 

1,235 gasoline traps have been examined in garages 
and cleansing establishments. 

387 grease traps have been examined in hotels, res- 
taurants and commercial establishments. 

Reported in writing on 1,866 municipal liens to the 
City Collector, in accordance with chapter 60, section 23 
of the General Laws. Reported orally on about 4,000 
requests for information on municipal liens. 

189 notices have been mailed to abutters in con- 
formity with the Ordinances chapter 27, section 8, 
apprising them of the construction of new sewers or 
repairs to old sewers. 

During the year 1940, 5,209 catch-basins were cleaned 
by day labor and 1,154 by advertised contract. 

Work was started in July, 1940, on W. P. A. project 
21666. This project covers demolition of a three-story 
brick stable, 195 feet by 62 feet at the Highland Street 
Yard, and also the erection of a new modern one-story 
brick and steel frame garage to house about forty trucks. 
Demolition work was started in July, 1940, and com- 
pleted in October, 1940. Construction work on founda- 
tions for the new garage was started in October, 1940, 
and it is expected that the new garage will be completed 
during October, 1941. 

Work was started in August, 1940, on W. P. A. project 
21793. This project covers the erection of a new one- 
story and basement brick and concrete office and shop 
building in city yard at 315 Western avenue, Brighton. 
It is expected that work on this project will be completed 
during June, 1941.

Division Engineer.

APPENDIX E. 

REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF 
THE WATER DIVISION. 



Boston, January 2, 1941. 

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, 1940: 



Engineering Branch. 

This branch of the Water Division was engaged in 
the extension and improvement of the distribution 
system. The extension of main pipe in the system was 
performed by contract labor, and the main portion of 
the relaying work was done by W. P. A. forces under 
the general supervision of the division's regular engineer- 
ing and inspection forces. Funds were supplied by the 
Federal Relief Administration for the labor used by the 
so-called W. P. A. forces, and a portion of the material 
used on the work, and the funds of the Water Division, 
were used to supply cast-iron pipe specials, gates, hy- 
drants, lead, boxes, etc. 

A total of 31,774 feet of pipe were either laid or re- 
laid, varying in sizes from 8-inch to 48-inch, inclusive, 
of which the W. P. A. forces performed 18,671 feet, or 
3.54 miles.

Distribution Branch, 

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 water, freeing of stoppages in service pipes, 
etc., was performed in such a manner and at such 
periods as to cause a minimum of delay and incon- 
venience to applicants for water, water takers and the 
general public. 

A large increase in the amount of 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 connecting of services 
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. 

Due to the decreasing of the personnel, and no re- 
placements made in the repair gangs of the Water 
Division, it has been necessary to engage the services 
of contractors to assist the department at various times 
throughout the year in repairing of leaks and laying 
and relajdng of service pipes. 

Business Office. 

The campaign inaugurated in 1938 to enforce the 
payment of outstanding water bills is still in force. 
Customers in arrears are notified that the flow of water 
will be reduced, but yet enough water is left on the 
premises to provide a minimum for health and sanitary 
requirements. As a result of this campaign the Water 
Division ended the year 1940 with a surplus of 
$418,454.34, this surplus being due mainly to the 
collection of bills past due.

This department contacts the water consumers very 
frequently throughout the year, and the conduct of 
the office has been such that I believe a spirit of good 
will between the customers and the employees has been 
brought about which is beneficial to the consumer and 
the city.

APPENDIX F. 



REPORT OF BOSTON AND CAMBRIDGE 
BRIDGE COMMISSION. 

Boston, January 2, 1941. 

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 Bridge Commission for the year 
ending December 31, 1940. 

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, 1940, under the regular appropriation, was $4,962.78. 
Under the appropriation for " Bridges, Repairs, Etc.," 
$433.23 was paid the John McCourt Company for 
furnishing and placing sheet asphalt pavement on 
approach to Cottage Farm Bridge, northerly from 
Commonwealth avenue. 

Respectfully submitted, 

George G. Hyland, 
Commissioner for the City of Boston.
