ANNUAL REPORT 



OF THE 



PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT 



YEAR ENDING DECEMBER 31, 1941. 



Boston, January 2, 1942. 

Hon. Maurice J. Tobin, 
Mayor of Boston. 

Dear AIr. 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, 1941. 

The total budgetary expenditures of the department 
for the year were $7,179,458.06 of which $875,401.94 
represents expenditures in connection with the Work 
Relief Program. The total revenue from all sources, 
except from the operation of the Sumner Tunnel and 
from the sale of water, totalled $148,155.73. The 
Sumner Tunnel revenue amounted to $1,110,452.22 and 
the revenue from the sale of water totalled $4,997,949.03. 
The resulting Sumner Tunnel deficit of $58,731.40, after 
deducting the $100,000 subsidy paid by the Common- 
wealth to the City of Boston out of the so-called High- 
way Fund, is the lowest in the history of the tunnel. 
The surplus resulting from the sale of water amounted 
to $639,584.02. 

This marks the fourth consecutive year of your ad- 
ministration that the Water Division has shown a sur- 



2 City Document No. 24. 

plus, vvhicii is a remarkal)le record when one considers 
that, prior to your administration, the Water Division 
had a deficit each year for seven successive years. 

There were 2,104 employees in the department as of 
Decem})er 31. This represents a loss of 102 employees 
during;- the year and a loss of 446 since the start of your 
administration in January of 1938. 

A thorough study is being made of the problems in- 
volving the disposal of garbage and refuse from the area 
of the city now included in the so-called ten-year Cole- 
man contract and I am confident that a satisfactory 
solution to this problem will be reached long before the 
termination date of the contract, which is June 30, 1942. 
Wliile, unquestionably, and as pointed out in my annual 
report for the year 1938, the city will, in the near future, 
have to dispose of its garbage and refuse by means of 
incineration, the declaration of war on December 8 will 
make it impossible to obtain the necessary materials 
and skilled labor to construct incinerators in 1942. 
Nevertheless, I feel that, upon the expiration date of the 
present ten-year contract, we will be able to put into 
effect a temporary disposal method that will be as 
sanitary as the present system and more economical for 
the city. 

The department continued to extend the districts of 
the city from which garbage and refuse is collected under 
the contract system, Back Bay, a section of Roxbury 
called the Dudley district and South Boston being 
added to the contract collection area this year. 

The department undertook its first activity of a 
Civilian Defense nature when it made a house to house 
collection for aluminum in July coincidental with the 
country-wide drive for this essential material. We col- 
lected in excess of 111,000 pounds which compared 
favorably with collections made in other large cities. 

Under date of January 25 a contract was awarded to 
the Pitometer Company, Inc., of New York, for the 
conducting of a so-called water waste survey in the 
Charlestown district. The contract stipulated that the 
city would pay only for the value of the water waste 
actually located to the limit of $4,900, although the 
survey would be completed even though the above- 
referenced maximum amount had been paid to the con- 
tractor. The work provided for was satisfactorily com- 
pleted in July and the value of the leaks uncovered was

far in excess of the $4,900 paid the contractor. Anothei 
contract was awarded therefor on September 19 to the 
same contractor for a water waste survey in the City 
Proper, involving iDoth the low and high service system. 
This contract provides for a maximum of $1,400 to he 
paid by tlie city for water waste actually uncovered. 
The work is proceeding satisfactorily and will be com- 
pleted sometime in 1942. 

The program of the Work Projects Administration 
was substantially curtailed during the year as compared 
with previous years with the result that the department 
constructed approximately fifty new streets under con- 
tract and also installed new sewerage facihties and 
effected sul^stantial bridge repairs unclei- the contract 
system. 

The resurfacing of Atlantic avenue and Commercial 
street was completed by W. P. A. forces. The new 
cement concrete surface is a big improvement over the 
old rough granite block surface and will be instrumental 
in expediting the movement of traffic on this busy water- 
front street. At this writing arrangements are being 
made for the removal of the elevated structure, the 
removal of which will further increase the vehicular 
carrying capacity of both Atlantic avenue and Com- 
mercial street and tend to revive this somewhat decadent 
area. 

Another notable improvement effected by W. P. A. 
was the completion of the pedestrian overpass wliich 
crosses Old Colony avenue and Columbia road, near 
Old Harbor Village. This structure, which was designed 
by department engineers, is one of the most modern of 
its kind and provides cantilever ramps for pedestrian 
use in place of the old style stairways. 

In accordance with recommendations submitted by 
the committee on snow removal in the previous year, 
the department constructed a new snow dump at the 
site of the abandoned North Ferry at the foot of Batterj^ 
street. This dump was used for the first time in 
February and it has lived up to our expectations. The 
lack of snow dumps is a problem continually facing the 
department and the acquisition therefor of this new one 
will be of lasting benefit to the department. 

A comprehensive and much needed bridge recon- 
struction program was started during the year, the 
necessary funds being provided under the provisions of 



4 City Document No. 24. 

an order that was passed in the City Council on June 30. 
This order authorized the issuance, under the provisions 
of section 7 of chapter 44 of the General Laws, of bonds 
in the total amount of 1500,000 for bridge construction 
work. 

A contract therefor was awarded to the contracting 
firm of Martin J. Kelly in September on reconditioning 
sixteen bridges located in various sections of the city. 
The work provided for has been practically completed 
and the structures included in the contract are now in 
a satisfactory condition. 

A contract was also awarded to Baker & Co. for the 
reconstruction of the Charlestown Bridge, including the 
installation of an open steel mesh type of decking. This 
decking not only reduces the cost of maintenance but is 
greatly superior to the old type wooden decking in that 
it eliminates the dangerous hazard always existing to 
motorists on slippery wooden decks caused by ice or 
accumulations of snow or rain. It is our intention to 
install this open grid type of steel decking on every 
bridge in Boston, where practicable, over a period of 
a few years, although the completion of this program 
wull be delayed because of conditions caused by the war. 
The progress of the Charlestown Bridge job is slow 
because of difficulty in obtaining the necessary steel. 
The latter material is getting very difficult to obtain 
because of the use being made of it in our National 
Defense program. 

Contracts were also aw^arcled late in the year for the 
reconstruction of the Longfellow Bridge, which is under 
the jurisdiction of the Boston and Cambridge Bridge 
Commission, the Meridian Street Bridge and the Sum- 
mer Street Bridge, over the Reserved Channel. The 
work on these structures is slow^ in starting because of 
the difficulty in getting the essential and critical ma- 
terials needed for the work. 

Appended hereto are complete and detailed reports 
submitted by the five division engineers of the depart- 
ment covering the activities of their respective divisions 
during the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

George G. Hyland, 
Commissioner of Public Works, 



Public Works Department. 5 

The records of the department show that there are 
now 2,104 persons ehgible for employment in the several 
(hvisions, and of that number 2,056 were upon the 
January, 1942, pay rolls.

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, 
between Boston Proper and East Boston, were approved, 
covering the year 1941. 

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 l)oat operations 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.

dail}'. A second boat starts from East Boston at 
7.15 a. m., permitting of a 15-minute schedule, and 
continues until 11 a. m. At 2 p. m. it resumes oper- 
ation and remains in operation until 6.15 p. m. The 
second boat does not operate on Sundays or holidays. 

City forces built a new ferry headhouse at the South 
Ferry, East Boston, to replace the one destroyed by 
fire on April 8, 1941. 

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

Works Progress Administration. 
Project 22323. 

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

Footbridge at Old Harbor Village. 
Work was started on the building of this footbridge 
on December 12, 1940, and was completed and dedicated 
by his Honor the Mavor on September 21, 1941, at a 
total cost to the city of $24,869.26. 

Reconstruction of Blue Hill Aveyiue Bridge. 
Work was started December 12, 1940, and completed 
September 8, 1941, at a total cost to the city of $11,- 
748.31. The original wood block surface was replaced 
with Type I, which to date has stood up very well. 

Reconstruction of Everett Street Bridge. 
Work was started December 12, 1940, and completed 
March 24, 1941, at a total cost to the city of $8,589.74. 
The wooden deck was entirely removed and replaced. 

Sumner Tunnel. 
Summary of Work During 191^1. 

W. P. A. Project No. 21966 — Renovate and Improve 
Sumner Tunnel. 

The following work was completed under this project: 

At East Boston Plaza. — Erected retaining wall and 

installed stone facing and capping. Installed concrete 

base and erected lighting standard. Raked and painted

with waterproofing the stone wall at plaza incline. 
Cleaned and painted fences around building. 

At East Boston Vent Building. — Raked and painted 
with waterproofing the walls of the high tension room. 
Erected walls and installed frames and doors for store- 
room and shop on the third and fourth floors. Cleaned 
and painted fans, air regulators and fences. 

At Boston Vent Building. — Raked and painted with 
waterproofing the walls of the high tension room. 
Erected walls and roof and installed frames and doors 
for shop on the fourth floor. Cleaned and painted fans, 
air regulators and fences. 

At Administration Building. — Installed night deposi- 
tory head in vault. Erected and painted grille parti- 
tions in basement. Cleaned and painted fences around 
building. 

At Boston Plaza. — Raked and painted with, water- 
proofing the stone wall on plaza incline. 

In Tunnel. — Cleaned and painted frames and covers 
of splicing chambers, doors of niches, baffle plates, hand 
rails, fire line on south wall curb and discharge pipe 
under roadway. 

Erected guards on fire line at hose niches, water- 
proofed and numbered hose niches, cut hole and in- 
stalled bulkhead door in west wall of water chamber. 

Installed four (4) new fire line connections and changed 
thirty-six (36) valves and hose connections from 1^ 
inches to 2h inches. 

Installed 'a loop of 20,909 feet of 300,000 C. M. cable, 
including cross ties and connections to station ground 
systems at the Boston and East Boston Ventilation 
Buildings. Unfinished work on this item included the 
installation of four (4) cross ties of 300,000 C. M. cable 
in the harbor section and ten (10) connections between 
the high and low tension splicing chambers and the 
tunnel steel rings. This work was not completed be- 
cause the electricians employed by the W. P. A. left 
the project for outside work other than W. P. A. and 
were not replaced by other electricians. 

The unfinished condition of this ground network 
leaves the conditions surrounding the lead sheathed 
cables about the same as before the cable was installed. 
The primary reason for installing this network of ground- 
ing was to lengthen the life of the present lead sheathed 
cables by picking up any electrolytic or stray currents 
off the cable sheaths and metal w^ork at solidlv bonded 



16 City Document No. 24. 

joints. The grounding system was designed to over- 
come the conditions mentioned above, which forced us 
to install a new telegraph cable in 1935 and a new 
metering cable in 1937. 

Unless the grounding system is completed as recom- 
mended, the purpose for which it was installed cannot 
be gained. 

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 in 1940. The work on the marine 
railway was completed this year with the exception of 
certain adjustments to the machinery. Plans were pre- 
pared and work supervised by this division for the Police 
Department. 

Proposed Project. 

South Ferry Drops, Headhouse and Meter Room, Boston 
and East Boston Sides. 

In October, 1939, a project w^as submitted to the 
W. P. A. for work at the South Ferry drops, headhouse 
and meter room, Boston and East Boston sides ; repairing 
fire damage, painting and repairing, rebuilding drop 
suspension and floor system. Work was started and 
continued, after approval of the project, until all avail- 
able money was expended. A supplementary project was 
written up in 1940 for the completion of this work, and 
the same was approved but never started due to shortage 
of skilled labor. 

The more important works undertaken during the 
past year in the Bridge and Ferry Di\dsion, in addition 
to W. P. A. projects, were constructing a snow dump 
at the North Ferry, Boston; removing snow and ice in 
area No. 3; removing snow and ice in area No. 10; 
redecking the drawspan of the Dover Street Bridge, 
over Fort Point Channel; bridge reconstruction work 
on various bridges; construction work on the Warren 
Bridge, over the Charles river; construction work on the 
Longfellow Bridge, over the Charles river; building a 
footway at Parsons street, Brighton; construction work 
on the draw^span of the Meridian Street Bridge; repair- 
ing hull, etc., of ferryboat "Ralph J. Palumbo"; repair- 



Public Works Department. 17 

ing hull, etc., of ferryboat "Daniel A. MacCormack " ; 
bridge construction work on Charlestown Bridge, over 
the Charles river. 

Bridge Service. 

Charlestown Bridge Draw. 

Since the whole of the deck system of roadways and 
sidewalks finally required renewing, due to wear and 
rotting of the wooden members, and also that the 
spruce sheathing of the roadways had been considered 
a tributory cause to skidding of automobiles in moist 
weather, some sort of grill deck for the roadways was 
suggested. After a study of various types of grill decks 
and the resulting effect on the ]:tridge trusses and ma- 
chinery had been completed a contract was publicly 
advertised for the removal of the whole of the present 
deck system, not including the steel stringers, and in- 
stalling grill decks in the side or principal roadways of 
the draw but retaining the original or wooden type 
decks in the center roadway; this last was deemed 
advisable since the street car tracks in the center road- 
way made the installation of the grill type decks 
impractical. 

On September 2, 1941, the Mayor approved a contract 
with the Baker Company, the low bidder, for accom- 
plisliing this work. However, due to the National 
Emergency the necessary materials for completing this 
contract were not allowed by the Office of Production 
Management. For this reason no work was started. 

Dover Street Draw. 

Due to normal wear and the age of the deck planking, 
stringers and wooden sidewalks, the rencAving of these 
members became necessary. 

The Mayor approved a contract on July 7, 1941, with 
A. Orlando, Inc., the low bidder, for doing this work. 
In order to interfere as little as possible with the move- 
ment of traffic, veliicular and waterborne, two require- 
ments of the contract were to keep the draw in operation 
and to maintain one line of vehicular traffic and one 
sidewalk at all times; while these requirements extended 
the number of working days to complete the contract 
the maintaining of the services justified the provisions 
noted above. As work progressed and the steel struc- 



18 City Document No. 24. 

tiirals were uncovered, necessary renewals and repairs 
to such steel meml)ers were completed. 

Work under this contract was completed on September 
22, 1941, at a cost of $17,016.66. 

Meridian Street Draw. 

Tliis draw, built in 1912, supposedly as a temporarj^ 
structure, has been l^y far the busiest bridge, so far as 
openings are concerned of any of the drawbridges; there 
have been several counts of more than 1,000 openings 
per month since this draw has been in operation. 

In the year gone by only emergency repairs and re- 
newals to machinery and structurals have been made. 
General conditions of the whole of the wiring installa- 
tion, control equipment, machinery, steel deck members 
and wooden decking and sidewalks became so bad that 
a general contract for this work was advertised and on 
November 8, 1941, the Mayor approved a contract with 
Alarinucci Brothers & Co., the low bidder, for making 
certain general repairs to the draw. 

Work was started at once, but by the end of the year 
only the removal of the wooden deck system had been 
accomplished. The nature of the work required under 
this contract is such that maintenance of deck traffic is 
impossible. 

Warren Bridge. 

This bridge, which is one of the oldest, is built on 
wooden trestle bents. At the draw there is a water pipe 
crossing and originally there was a storehouse used bj^ 
the department for keeping large spare parts for various 
drawbridges and some patterns for castings. On June 27 
a fire destroyed this storehouse, burned the pile and 
trestle support of the water pipe putting the water pipe 
out of commission and did some damage to the bridge; 
the fire apparently started on the pipe trestle where 
trespassers sometimes gather in numbers. 

For some time the deck of the fixed spans near the 
draw on the Charlestown side showed increasing weak- 
ness and the piling at the draw crack became so weak 
due to rotting that repairs and renewals were necessary 
to keep the draw in commission and to safeguard the 
vehicles crossing the bridge. 

After advertising, the Acting Mayor, William J. 
Galvin, approved a contract with Berke-Moore Com- 



Public Works Department. 19 

pany, the low bidder, for driving the necessary new piles, 
installing new timber work and repaying the roadway 
near the draw. 

Work under this contract was not completed at the 
end of the year. 

Various Bridges. 

Due to a general condition of the decks and wearing 
surfaces of a number of bridges it was deemed advisable 
to draw up a general project to make the needed repairs. 
The following bridges were included : 

AUston Bridge, Cambridge street, over the Boston & Albany 
Railroad, Allston. 

Boston Street, over New York, New Haven & Hartford Rail- 
road, South Boston. 

Broadway Bridge, over Boston & Albany Railroad, City 
Proper. 

Byron Street, over Boston, Revere Beach & Lynn Railroad, 
East Boston. 

Central Avenue, over Neponset river, Dorchester. 

Cummins Highway, over New York, New Haven & Hartford 
Railroad, Alattapan. 

Dorchester Avenue, over New York, New Haven & Hartford 
Railroad, South Boston. 

Dover Street, over Fort Point channel. South Boston. 

Jones Avenue, over New York, New Haven & Hartford Rail- 
road, Dorchester. 

Milton Lower Mills, over Neponset river, Ashmont. 

Milton Street, over New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad, 
Hyde Park. 

Northern Avenue, Bridge Draw House, over Fort Point 
channel. City Proper. 

Redfield Street, over New York, New Haven & Hartford Rail- 
read, Neponset. 

Southampton Street, over New York, New Haven & Hartford 
Railroad, South Boston. 

Toll Gate Way Footbridge, over New York, New Ha\^en & 
Hartford Railroad, Forest Hills. 

West Fourth Street, over New York, New Haven & Hartford 
Railroad, South Boston. 

On September 2, 1941, the Mayor approved a contract 
with Martin Kelly, the low bidder, for making the repairs 
to the deck systems of these bridges. Work started at 
once in the field but the contract was not completed at 
the end of the year. 



20 City Document No. 24. 

Boston and Cambridge Bridges Commission. 
Longfellow Bridge. 

For some time it was known that certain steel repairs 
to the structurals of this bridge were indicated due to 
local corrosion from surface drain of the bridge and 
from the junctures of the Boston Elevated Railway and 
the two outside roadways. 

Bids for this work were invited by the Boston and 
Cambridge Bridge Commissioners and on November 26, 
1941, the Acting Mayor of Boston, Mr. William J. 
Galvin, and the Mayor of Cambridge, Mr. Francis L. 
Sennott, approved a contract with the J. A. Singarella 
Company, the low bidder, to make the needed repairs. 

Work started at once on the contract, but at the end 
of the year only a small part of the wooden staging had 
been erected. 

Highway Division. 
Parsons Street Footway. 

Parsons street, Brighton, which is 50 feet wide, passes 
under the Boston & Albany Railroad tracks at its end 
near the Charles river. At this railroad bridge the 
street is constricted to 20 feet in width and without 
provisions for a sidewalk. While this condition has 
existed for many years it was relatively recently that 
the increase in the number of vehicles and pedestrians 
passing indicated the necessit}^ for making an effort to 
safeguard the latter. 

After a consideration of the condition generally, it 
was decided that a new bridge with 50 feet clear between 
abutments was not required but that a footway 7 feet 
in width would be sufficient. 

To build this footway along the back of the easterly 
abutment of the railroad bridge, the Mayor on October 
25, 1941, approved a contract with the V. J. Grande 
Company, the low bidder. One of the requirements of 
the contract is that the train service of the Boston & 
Albany Railroad must be maintained; this provision 
necessitated close cooperation between the excavating 
by the contractor and the bracing and supporting of the 
rails of the railroad which is entirely supervised and 
accomplished b}' the Boston & Albanj^ Railroad. 



Public Works Department. 21 

Work started under this contract at once but by the 
end of the year only the excavation and a small part of 
the concrete work had been completed. 

Snow Du7np. 

The contract with W. H. Ellis & Sons Company for 
building a wooden pier from the foot of Battery street 
out to the Old Harbor line as a snow dump was com- 
pleted February 17, 1941, at a cost of $27,362. 

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 
and painted drawhouses and shelter houses; made re- 
pairs 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; repaired 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 snow area No. 3, 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, cUd not require a considerable 
amount of time, the nature of the work was of an 
advisory and investigating nature.

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

Ferryboat '^Daniel A. MacCormack.'^ 

Follo"s\dng the policy of the city to clean, paint and 
complete general repairs to its boats at the time of the 
running out of the "ships papers," a contract was drawn 
up to do this work on the "MacCormack." After ad- 
vertising, the Mayor approved a contract with the 
Quincy Dry Dock and Yacht Corporation on October 7, 
1941, to clean and paint the ship and make specified 
repairs to the hull system and machinery. Included in 
the machinery repairs was the rebabbitting, scraping 
and fitting of four main crank pin boxes and four main 
bearings. After work had started, and as hidden con- 
ditions were opened up, the United States Steam Boat 
Inspection Service required the renewing of thirty-four 
boiler mounting studs, the installing of stack stiffeners 
and a new stack damper. At this time it may be noted 
that the increased cost of materials and labor have 
resulted in a sharp rise in contract quotations; it may be 
noted further that the obtaining of materials becomes 
more difficult, due to the National Emergency causing 
protracted delays in completing even small repairs. 

Work under this contract was completed on Novem- 
ber 25, 1941, at a cost of $13,275.97. 

Ferryboat '^ Ralph J. Palumbo.'^ 

With the expiration of the "ships papers," a contract 
was drawn up to clean and paint the hull and super- 
structure and to make necessary repairs to the ship, 
main engine and auxiliaries. 



Public Works Department. 23 

On April 28, 1941, the Mayor approved a contract 
with the Qiiincy Dry Dock and Yacht Corporation to 
make the necessary repairs, etc. Included in the work 
done on the machinery was the rebabbitting and fitting 
of the main engine crossheads, and new crosshead brasses, 
new 8-inch back pressure valve, reboring of one high 
and one low pressure cylinder, reboring of cages and 
fitting of new valves of the six piston valves, the re- 
babbitting of four crank pin boxes and four main bear- 
ings, the cleaning of the boilers for United States Steam 
Boat Inspection Service examination, new furnace front 
of boilers, furnishing of two new flue dampers, main 
stop and blow-down valves of boilers overhauled, the 
ventilating blower and turbine overhauled and a new 
hand fire pump installed. 

Work under this contract was completed on June 23, 
1941, at a cost of $13,856.90. 

Department Force. 

During the year machinists, carpenters, painters, rig- 
gers and electricians, who are included in the personnel 
of the Ferry Service, made all repairs possible to the 
plant to the extent of equipment at their disposal. 
This work consisted mainly of ixdnor repairs to the 
machinery on the boats, repairs to ferry bridge ma- 
chinery, ferry bridge roadways and headhouse repairs 
in general.

REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF 
THE HIGHWAY DIVISION. 



Boston, January 2, 1942. 

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, 1941. 

The Paving Service Maintenance Appropriation in 
the budget called for $897,553.60. There was an un- 
expended balance of S22,962.31 from 1940, making a 
total appropriation of $920,515.91. The amount ex- 
pended during the year was $879,575.44. During the 
year transfers amounting to $5,275 were made to this 
appropriation and transfers amounting to $44,913.59 
were made from this appropriation, leaving an unex- 
pended balance of $1,301.88 at the end of the year. 

The following is a summary of the appropriation for 
Work Relief Program for the year 1941 : 

Original appropriation in the budget . . $600,000 00 

Transfers from appropriation . $46,800 00 

Transfers to appropriation . 15,000 00 



Net transfers 31,800 00 



Total credits for 1941 $568,200 00 

Total amount expended in 1941 .... 557,868 89 



Unexpended balance $10,331 11 



As of January 1, 1941, the regular employees num- 
bered 475 and on December 31, 1941, our personnel had 
decreased to 467. 

The amount of money taken in through the Permit 
Office of the Pa\dng Service was $15,516.48. Of this 
amount $12,432.23 was deposited with the City Col- 



Public Works Department. 49 

lector, and $3,084.25 was billed to public service cor- 
porations. There are now on file in the Permit Office 
1,515 bonds in amounts of one, three, four and twenty 
thousand dollars, covering the city against claims for 
damages, etc., through the use of permits. 

The regular force of the Paving Service was em- 
ployed as usual in the maintenance of all public streets, 
resurfacing and patching macadam pavements, patch- 
ing all permanent pavements such as asphalt, granite 
block, etc., and taking care of all gravel, l^rick and 
artificial stone sidewalks. 

Work was continued this year by the Federal Works 
Progress forces in the construction and reconstruction 
of streets, sidewalks and retaining walls. 

Also the division has permanently constructed streets, 
with sidewalks, edgestones and roadway that were ac- 
cepted by the Board of Street Commissioners and an 
assessment was made on the abutting owners. Under 
this arrangement fifty new streets were constructed. 

Following is a statement of some of the more im- 
portant street work performed this year: 

Atlantic avenue. Causeway and Commercial streets 
were finished; the reconstruction of State street, from 
Merchants row to India street; the reconstruction of 
Boylston street and Huntington avenue, from Arlington 
to Exeter streets; the reconstruction of Berkeley street, 
from Tremont street to St. James avenue ; the resurfac- 
ing of the Summer Street Bridge, one half of which was 
completed during the year; the reconstruction of Tre- 
mont street, from Hammond street to Roxbury Crossing; 
the reconstruction of Morton street, from Fairmount 
street to the railroad bridge; the reconstruction of Ben- 
nington street, from Porter to Prescott streets, and the 
construction of a footpath and steps on Monastery path, 
from Warren street to the monastery. 

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

Comparison of 1940 Costs. — There were increases over 
last year in the old contract districts of S16,000, while 
the creation of new contract districts accounted for 
$187,000. Street cleaning increased $43,000. There 
was a decrease of $15,000 in the day labor waste collec- 
tion account, and a decrease of $13,000 in the indirect 
account, making a net increase of $77,000. 



Public Works Department. 57 

The increases in the contract districts were as follows: 



East Boston 
Charlestown . 
Brighton 
West Roxbin-y 
Dorchester 
Elm Hill . 
Hvclo Park 



S745 

6,624 

976 

1,742 

5,362 

646 

181 



Total $16,276 



Districts. — At the beginning of this year, two new 
contract districts were added, namely, Back Bay 
district and a section of Roxbury, called Dudley district. 
On March 17 the South Boston district was changed 
from day labor to contract, making ten contract districts 
in all. 

Welfare. — Welfare figures continued to decrease, and 
dropped from 2,084 man davs per week at the end of 
1940 to 439 at the end of 1941. 

W. P. A. — During the year a W. P. A. project was 
in progress, which employed nineteen workers. The 
work consisted of making field observations and measure- 
ments, and compiling, summarizing, tabulating, cor- 
relating and mapping data relating to street and alley 
cleaning from records of the Sanitary Division and from 
field ol:)servations. 

Aluminum Collection. — As a part of the National 
Defense Program, one week in August was set for the 
collection of discarded aluminum utensils. Collections 
were made from the houses. Boy and Girl Scouts made 
house-to-house collections and placed this material in 
city trucks. The aluminum collected was weighed and 
relayed to a central storehouse. 

The public responded patriotically, even going to such 
extremes as purchasing new pots and pans for the 
collection to show the depth of their cooperation, with 
the result that 111,286 pounds were collected. 

However, the plan, which was not conceived })y the 
city authorities, had serious defects. The regular junk 
collectors were excluded from participation. There was 
thus no provision for processing the material, l)ecause 
without separation of the iron handles and stiffeners in 
the rims, the material was useless. Also, the time 
chosen was during the vacation season and many people 
were not at home. Thus, the production was less than 
it should have been. 



58 City Document No. 24. 

Manpower. — The National Defense Program and the 
country's going to war in December caused separations 
from the service of the Sanitary Division for military 
leaves of absence so rapidly that we shall soon be faced 
with a serious shortage of manpower. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Adolph J. Post, 
Division Engineer. 



Public Works Department.

APPENDIX D. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF 
THE SEWER DIVISION. 



Boston, January 2, 1942. 

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, 1941. 

During the fiscal year 1941, there were built by con- 
tractors, day labor, private parties and by the city under 
W. R. P. supervision 9.96 miles of common sewers and 
surface drains throughout the city. After deducting 
0.95 miles of sewers and surface drains, rebuilt or 
abandoned, the net increase for 1941 is 9.01 miles, 
which added to the existing 1,210.40 miles of common 
sewers and surface drains and 30.93 miles of inter- 
cepting sewers, makes a grand total of 1,250.34 miles of 
all sewers belonging to the City of Boston, and under 
the care of the Sewer Division on January 1, 1942. 

There were 229 catch-basins built or rebuilt and eleven 
abandoned or removed during the year, making a net 
gain of 218 catch-basins and a grand total of 22,436 catch- 
basins under the care of the Sewer Division on January 
1, 1942. 

Entrance fees to the amount of $2,337 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. 

998 permits have been issued, viz.: 335 to district 
foremen and contractors and 663 to drainla3^ers for 
repairing or laying new house drains. Inspectors from 
this office have personally inspected tlie work done 
under these drainlayers' permits. 

Plans for the assessments of estates for sewer con- 
struction have been furnished the Board of Street 
Commissioners, representing 10,881.75 linear feet of 
sewers. 



66 City Document No. 24. 

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

700 catch-basin complaints were received. 

700 gasoline traps have been examined in garages 
and cleansing establishments. 

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

Reported in writing on 2,929 municipal liens to the 
City Collector, in accordance with chapter 60, section 
23, of the General Laws. Reported orally on about 
3,500 requests for information on municipal liens. 

243 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 1941, 3,729 catch-basins were cleaned 
by day labor and 928 by advertised contract.

APPENDIX E. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER OF 
THE WATER DIVISION. 



Boston, January 2, 1942. 

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, 1941: 

Engineering Branch. 

This branch of the Water Division was engaged in 
the extension and improvement of the distribution 
system. The extension of main pipe and the relaying 
work was done by contract and W. P. A. forces under 
the general supervision of the cUvision'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, 
hydrants, lead, boxes, etc. 

A total of 11,982 feet of pipe were either laid or 
relaid, varying in sizes from 3-inch to 24-inch, inclusive, 
of which the W. P. A. forces performed 2,874 feet or 
.544 miles.

Distribution Branch. 

The regular work of the Distribution Brancli, 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 delay and inconvenience 
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. 

The machine shop ancl plumbing shop were forced to 
handle all the drilling and connecting of services oc- 
casioned 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 relaying of service pipes. 

In order to check the leakage of water, a Pitometer 
Survey was started in the summer of 1941, and a con- 
tract was let for the Charlestown district, the contractor 
to be paid for the actual amount of leakage found, not 
to exceed a certain fixed sum. Upon completion of the 
Charlestown district another contract was entered into 
for the high and low service of the downtown section 
of the city on the same liasis. 

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 1941 with a surplus of 
$639,584.02, this surplus being due mainly to the 
collection of l)ills past due.

The Metropolitan assessment for 1941 amounted to 
$3,060,278.52, an increase of $381,113.20 over the 
assessment for 1930. 

Total amount billed, 1941 $4,892,269 11 

Total amount collected in 1941 bills as of 

December 31, 1941 $3,856,694 26 

Total amount abated for 1941 bills as of De- 
cember 31, 1941 $27,473 79 

Total amount collected in 1941 on bills ren- 
dered prior to 1941 $1,020,579 14 

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 
v^^ill between the customers and the employees has been 
brought about which is beneficial to the consumer and 
the city. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Daniel M. Sullivan, 

Division Engineer.

APPENDIX F. 



REPORT OF BOSTON AND CAMBRIDGE 
BRIDGES COMMISSION. 



Boston, January 2, 1942. 

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, 1941. 

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, 1941, under the regular appropriation, was $4,854.92. 

Bridges — Construction of Longfellow Bridge. 

Under a loan for "Bridges — Construction of," a con- 
tract was awarded to J. A. Singarella Company, ap- 
proved by the Mayor November 26, 1941, for strengthen- 
ing the transverse floor beams between arch ribs D 
and E, both sides of the bridge, where directed. The 
work also includes repairing sidewalk railings, repair- 
ing arch posts and repairing or renewing cross bracing, 
etc., where directed. The estimated cost is $38,580, of 
which amount Boston will pay one half and Cambridge 
one half. The work was started December 5, 1941, and 
will be completed in 1942. 

Respectfully submitted, 

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