Details on Snow Emergency


To the Residents of South Boston:
 
A Winter Storm Warning has been issued throughout Massachusetts.  The City of Boston has also declared a Snow Emergency and Parking Ban that will go into effect at noon today.  Due to the Snow Emergency, parking is prohibited on all major roadways and arteries throughout Boston.  The purpose of the ban is to keep major roadways accessible for snowplows and emergency response vehicles.  Those found violating the ban will be subject to ticketing and towing.  As an alternative, parking garages will be made available for cars with resident stickers. 
 
In South Boston, the following roads are subject to the Parking Ban:
 
A St.
B St. (from West First St. to West Second St.)
Boston St.
Broadway (from Albany to Dorchester Ave.)
C St. (from West Broadway to West First St.)
Congress St.
D St.
Dorchester Ave.
Dorchester St.
East Broadway
East First St.
L St.
Northern Ave.
Old Colony Ave. (from Dorchester Ave. to Preble St.)
Old Colony Blvd.
Preble St.
Seaport Blvd. (from Atlantic Ave. to B St.)
Shore Drive
Southhampton St.
Summer Street
West Broadway
West First St. (from B St. to East First St.)
West Second St. (from B St. to Dorchester Ave.)
William J. Day Blvd.
 
Additionally, the Department of Conservation and Recreation closed Morrissey Boulevard earlier this morning and it will remain closed until further notice.
 
While parking on these roads is prohibited until the ban is lifted, those with resident stickers can park at the following garages:
 
12 Drydock Ave. 1766 spaces               
450 West Broadway 60 spaces
650-652 East Broadway 22 spaces
415 Summer St. (BCEC South Lot) 1300 spaces
 
A full list of the major South Boston roadways subject to the Parking Ban and information on garages open to residents can be found at the following link:
 
 
As a result of the Snow Emergency, Boston Public Schools will also be closed tomorrow, January 3, 2014.   
 
The Mayor's 24-Hour Hotline is open and those with weather-related questions or concerns, including icy conditions or downed power lines/trees, should call (617) 635-4500.
 
The City's Shelter Commission asks that any resident who sees a potential medical emergency involving a homeless person dial 9-1-1.  
 
Lastly, just a reminder to please check on any elderly neighbors or family members who may need help during the Snow Emergency.  
 
If you have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact my office.
 
Sincerely,
-Nick Collins
