ANNUAL REPORT 

OF THE 

PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT 

FOR THE 

vi:ar ending December si, 1949. 



Boston - , January 3, 1950. 

Hon. John B. Hynes, 

Mayor of Boston. 
Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully submit the following report relating 
to the activities of the Public Works Department for 
the year ending December 31, 1949: 

During the year a particularly important and necessary 
job was done to strengthen and recondition the pier 
foundations of the Chariest own Bridge which, upon 
examination, were found to have deteriorated to an 
alarming degree. Under a contract awarded to the 
Crandall Engineering Company, this work is now in 
progress and will be completed early in the coming year. 

Much work of a maintenance nature has been done 
on the city-owned bridges. This work, of necessity, 
should not be curtailed. In fact, the time has come when 
larger sums should be made available for rebuilding 
many of our bridges which are in a dangerous condition, 
and for major repairs and maintenance. 

For the protection of motorists and 
bridges which carry highway traffic, a 
awarded in 1948 for the installation of 
flashers and reflectors on such of these 



others using 
contract was 
traffic signal 
structures as 
have center roadway obstructions. The work of

installation was completed in January of this year, 
and since these devices were considered as being more 
properly with the general control of vehicular traffic 
under the jurisdiction of the Boston Traffic Commission, 
negotiations were carried on with that department for 
taking over the operation and maintenance of that 
equipment on 25 bridges throughout the city, together 
with the care, control and maintenance of the standard 
push-button traffic control lights at Chelsea North 
Bridge, Chelsea Street Bridge, and Maiden Bridge. 
With the approval of the Mayor, the Boston Traffic 
Commission assumed complete jurisdiction for all of 
this equipment on March 15 of the current year. 

The operating machinery of the ferryboat " Daniel A. 
MacCormack" was completely overhauled and the 
superstructure painted under one contract. Under 
another contract the rudders, propellers and other 
underwater parts of the boat were repaired. The larger 
part of this work was done in accordance with the 
requirements of the Coast Guard Steamship Inspection 
Service. Repairs of a more or less general nature were 
made to the Ferry plant on both sides of the harbor. 

The department has had a problem where, because 
of freezing, the fire line water pipe originally installed 
in the Sumner Tunnel has at times been unavailable 
for use. From time to time minor repairs were made 
and, this year, it was decided to renew the pipe and 
encase it with an asphalt and sand mastic which 
will serve as an insulation and, it is expected, will 
prevent further trouble from freezing. The work, 
performed under contract, was completed in December. 

Although bids were received on the 30th of November, 
after public advertisement, for removing the drawspan 
and as much of the approaches on both sides of the 
Meridian Street Bridge as is necessary to comply with 
the requirements of the Secretary of the Army that a 
175-foot channel way be provided, a contract for doing 
the work has not, as yet, been awarded. The original 
order, modified several times, requires that the alter- 
ation must be made by January 31, 1950. Negotiations 
are now being carried on with officials of the Department 
of the Army for further time for carrying out this 
requirement. 

The plans prepared by the Crandall Engineering 
Company for a new structure to replace the existing 
Warren Bridge, over the Charles River, are completed 



Public Works Department. 3 

and ready for use when it appears advisable to proceed 
with the erection of a new bridge at that location. 

Proposals were received on November 23 for collecting 
and removing garbage, ashes and rubbish during the 
coming year. In the last remaining district — the South 
End — where this work has been done by day-labor 
forces heretofore, the collections, beginning on January 
1, will be made by contract, thereby completing the 
conversion of the entire city to the system of contract 
collection. 

The work of changing over from gas street lighting to 
electric street lighting, started last 3 T ear, has been 
continued in a very satisfactory manner. During the 
year, 979 gas lamps were eliminated and replaced by 
an equal number of electric lamps in the various sub- 
urban sections of the city. This program will be carried 
on without interruption in all sections where electric 
facilities are available and provided that the Boston 
Edison Company is able to procure the necessary supplies 
and equipment required for the new installations. 

A large and important program of street construction 
was prepared for the current year which included the 
reconstruction of a number of main arteries and of many 
streets in the residential sections. Considerable resur- 
facing of roadway areas was done in the downtown 
section of the city. A list of the major improvements is 
included in the Highway Division section of this report. 

The activities of the Sewer and Water Divisions 
included the maintenance of the systems and the exten- 
sion of facilities where required. Complete cooperation 
was given by these two divisions to developers of 
property who were erecting new homes, and the Boston 
Housing Authority was assisted in every way in con- 
nection with the construction of its projects. 

By its diligence in collecting current water charges 
as well as overdue accounts, the Water Division ended 
the year with a surplus of $632,547.10, a very credit- 
able record. 

Respectfully yours, 

Robert P. Curley, 
Commissioner of Public Works.

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

In an order from 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 1949. 

The city operates one ferry, the so-called "South 
Ferry," with the Boston terminus at Eastern avenue 
and the East Boston terminus at Lewis street. 

The more important works undertaken during the 
past year in the Bridge and Ferry Division were general 
repairs to the Bennington Street Bridge; resurfacing, 
painting, etc., the Brooks Street Bridge and Stairway, 
Brighton; emergency strengthening of piers of Charles- 
town Bridge; repairs to the Gove Street Footbridge; 
repairing fender piers of Meridian Street Bridge; 
guniting and painting Temple Street Bridge; repairing 
pile bents and roadway of Warren Bridge; rebuilding 
the superstructure of Walworth Street Bridge; resur- 
facing Winthrop Bridge; emergency repairs to ma- 
chinery of Summer Street Bridge; emergenc3 r repairs 
to machinery foundation of Summer Street Bridge; 
steel repairs to Allston and Boylston Street Bridges; 
repairing the pavement of the Sumner Traffic Tunnel; 
renewing water pipe, Sumner Traffic Tunnel; cleaning 



14 City Document No. 24. 

the surface drainage system of the Sumner Tunnel; 
cleaning exhaust duct and exhaust fan rooms of the 
Sumner Tunnel; renewing traffic signal control cables 
at the Sumner Tunnel; furnishing and installing two 
turnstiles at the South Ferry; cleaning and painting 
the hull of the ferryboat "Daniel A. MacCormack"; 
general repairs to the ferryboat "Daniel A. Mac- 
Cormack"; strengthening northerly pier of gallows 
frame foundation, South Ferry, East Boston, etc. 

Bridge Service. 

General Repairs to the Bennington Street Bridge, over the 
former Boston, Revere Beach & Lynn Railroad. 
Due to the very poor condition of the roadway plank 
and steel work of this bridge, extensive repairs were 
necessary and a contract was entered into with Martin 
J. Kelly Company, Inc., for doing this work. Work 
commenced October 3, 1949, and is now in progress. 
It is expected that the work will be completed early 
in 1950. Payments of $9,241.09 have been made to 
date. 

Resurfacing, Painting, Etc., the Brooks Street Bridge and 
Stairway in Brighton. 
Because of the defective condition of the roadway 
surface, which allowed water to leak through to the steel 
work, a contract was entered into with Charles A. 
Reynolds to remove the existing surface, grout the 
concrete underdeck, resurface, make necessary repairs 
and paint. The work commenced August 22, 1949, 
and was completed October 1, 1949, at a cost of 
$2,001.17. 

Emergency Repairs to the Charlestown Bridge Piers. 
An under water inspection of the pier foundations 
disclosed that seven of the piers had been undermined 
to an alarming degree. Test samples of the concrete 
removed showed very poor material for depths up to 
2 and 3 feet. Conditions indicated that immediate 
repairs were necessary and the city entered into a 
contract with the Crandall Engineering Company for 
strengthening the pier foundations by driving a short 
steel bulkhead at the most defective sections, in such a 
way as to allow the work to be continued, and then 



Public Works Department. 15 

filling between the sheeting and the pier with concrete 
placed by tremie method. The work commenced

t Including one military leave. 



Work Accomplished. — During the early part of the 
year 1949, while the motor sweepers were out of serv- 
ice, 200 temporary laborers were employed for three 
months on street cleaning. 



44 City Document No. 24. 

The servicing of the Dempster-Dumpster equipment 
has been performed by the South End day labor refuse 
collection force, because this system was largely used 
for the relay of refuse from the ends of the South End 
alleys. 

In 1950, the refuse collection will be done by con- 
tract, and the relay system for rubbish collection by 
city forces will then be discontinued. Therefore, a 
new street cleaning subdivision was created to service 
the Dempster-Dumpster system. Standard boxes were 
placed at strategic locations throughout the city, and 
are picked up by a crane designed for this purpose. 
It is a functional service, and has no district boundaries. 

On January 1, 1949, the North and West Ends 
(refuse removal) district was placed under contract, 
and the city day labor force of 76 men, thus released, 
were distributed among the various street-cleaning 
districts. 

On June 28, the cleaning of Columbia road, from 
Edward Everett square to Blue Hill avenue (at Frank- 
lin Park), was transferred from the Park Department 
to the Sanitary Division, and this area is now cleaned 
by District C-13, Dorchester. 

The following listed repairs and improvements have 
been accomplished: 

Repairs to Receiving Station at Albany street. 
Repairs to buildings at 650 Albany Street Yard. 
Repairs to Fort Hill Receiving Station, including painting. 
Repairs at Battery Street Yard Lavatory. 
Repairs at Victory Road Receiving Station. 

At the Albany Street Receiving Station, a bulkhead 
was constructed not only to retain the land area, which 
had fallen into the slip, but also to serve as a dust 
curtain. 

Extensive repairs were made at the Fort Hill Wharf 
Receiving Station, costing upwards of $40,000, and 
consisting chiefly of replacement of defective piling and 
underframing and decking. The dredging of the slips 
at this location was also accomplished. 

The following listed equipment was received under 
the Equipment Loan: 
1 Elgin sweeper. 

The following listed equipment was received under 
Item C-4, during the year 1949: 

Three Ford sedans, six pickup trucks, six Elgin sweepers, 
ten Ford dump trucks. 



Public Works Department. 45 

The quota of the Sanitary Division permanent em- 
ployees was reduced to 883, on account of the placing 
of the North and West Ends district under contract 
for refuse removal. 

Increases and Decreases. — The expenditures for the 
year 1949 show an increase over those of 1948 of 
$766,739.39. This increase is explained as follows: 

1. There was an increase in the contract prices for 
collecting and removing of waste material amounting 
to $111,882.60. 

2. The North and West Ends district was placed 
under contract for the first time at a price of $201,420. 

3. Extensive repairs to the disposal stations, par- 
ticularly the Fort Hill Station, account for an in- 
crease over 1948 amounting to $61,649.80. On ac- 
count of the closing of the Fort Hill Station for 
repairs for two and one-half months, the contractors 
using this station were awarded the sum of $20,310. 

4. There was an increase in the amount of the 
disposal contract amounting to $57,287. 

5. Street cleaning expenditures were increased in 
the amount of $458,691.05, chiefly on account of the 
transfer of the North and West Ends district laborers 
to this service. 

6. Against these increases, decreases should be 
noted in the following items: 

(a) Waste collection day labor $244,216 95 

(6) Indirect .... 42,187 39 

7. In the indirect item, there was an increase 
of $13,662.81 in pensions, $19,034.65 in preventive 
street cleaning, and $3,051.61 in miscellaneous items. 

Against these increases, there was a decrease of 
$1,895.06 in the injured roll, and there was no special 
spring clean-up expense, which in 1948 amounted to 
$76,041.40. 

8. Distributed throughout these expenditures is 
the full-year increase in wages and salaries of em- 
ployees, amounting to about $200,000 in 1949, as 
against $100,000 granted in 1948 for one-half year, 
or a net increase in this amount of about $100,000 
in 1949. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Adolph J. Post, 

Division Engineer.

APPENDIX D. 



REPORT OF THE DIVISION ENGINEER 
OF THE SEWER DIVISION. 



Boston, January 3, 1050. 

To the Commissioner of Public Works. 
Dear Sir: 

I submit herewith statement of the activities and ex- 
penditures of the Sewer Division for the vear ending 
December 31, 1949. 

During the fiscal year 1949, there were built by con- 
tractors and day labor 7.50 miles of common sewers and 
surface drains throughout the city. After deducting 
0.21 miles of sewers and surface drains, rebuilt or aban- 
doned, the net increase for 1949 is 7.29 miles, which 
added to the existing 1,241.14 miles of common sewers 
and surface drains and 30.93 miles of intercepting sewers, 
makes a grand total of 1,279.36 miles of all sewers be- 
longing to the City of Boston, and under the care of the 
Sewer Division on January 1, 1950. 

There were 125 catch basins built or rebuilt and 10 
abandoned or removed during the year, making a net 
gain of 115 catch basins and a grand total of 23,155 
catch basins under the care of the Sewer Division on 
January 1, 1950. 

Entrance fees to the amount of $3,019.38 have been 
deposited with the City Collector for collection from 
estates upon which no sewer assessments were ever paid, 
in accordance with Ordinances of 1925, chapter 27, 
section 10. 

Seven hundred and twenty-eight permits have been 
issued, viz., 240 to district foremen and contractors and 
488 to drainlayers for repairing or laying new house 
drains. Inspectors from this office have personally in- 
spected the work done under these drainlayers' permits. 

Two thousand nine hundred and three complaints 
have been investigated and inspectors are instructed to 
report in writing in each case. 



52 City Document No. 24. 

One thousand five hundred and sixty-seven catch 
basin complaints were received. 

Reported in writing on 2,402 municipal liens to the 
City Collector, in accordance with chapter 60, section 
25, of the General Laws. Reported orally on about 
2,600 requests for information on municipal liens. 

Notices have been mailed to abutters in conformity 
with the Ordinances of 1925, chapter 27, section 8, 
apprising them of the construction of new sewers or 
repairs to old sewers. 

During the year 1949, 4,170 catch basins were cleaned 
by day labor and 3,044 catch basins were cleaned by 
contract. 

Respectfully, 

Robert P. Shea, 
Division Engineer. 



Public Works Department.

To the Commissioner of Public Works. 
Dear Sir: 

I respectfully submit the following report of the 
activities of the Water Division, operations and ex- 
penditures for the fiscal year ending December 31, 1949. 

The shortage of critical materials having been les- 
sened, and new meters made available, the work of 
laying and relaying water mains and the replacement 
of obsolete meters, etc., was resumed. 

A total of 15,993 linear feet of pipe were either laid 
or relaid, varying in sizes from 6-inch to 12-inch, 
inclusive, as follows: 

Laid. Relaid. 

District. Linear Feet. Linear Feet. 

Roxbury 
East Boston 
City Proper

Due to the increased volume of work caused by 
applications for service pipes, etc., the department has 
engaged the services of contractors during the year. 

The regular work of this branch, consisting of in- 
stallation of new services and fire pipes, repairing of 
leaks, caring for complaints, shutting off and letting on

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

The machine shop and plumbing shop were forced 
to handle all the drilling and connecting of services in 
addition to the regular work carried on in these shops, 
such as the machining and assembling of gates, valves 
and hydrants, and the department assisted the other 
branches of the Public Works Department in perform- 
ing special jobs. 

Business Office. 
• In order to enforce the payment of outstanding water 
bills, 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 
sanitarv requirements. As a result, the Water Division 
ended the year 1949 with a surplus of $632,547.10, this 
surplus being due mainly to the collection of bills due 
and payable.

rendered prior to 1949 $677,795 33 

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 consumers and 
the city. 

The issuance of statements of outstanding water bills 
to the consumers before placing of liens on premises 
has been continued. The appreciation of the customers 
is shown by the fact that the number of liens placed 
on premises this year has been reduced. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Daniel M. Sullivan, 

Division Engineer.
