The mission of the Public Works Department is to provide a quality environment for the City of Boston and ensure that the City's roadways, streets and bridge infrastructures are safe, clean and attractive.
Improving Sidewalks for Bostonians
Through the end of the first quarter, the Public Works Department has brought into compliance 375 pedestrian ramps citywide. This reflects an increased commitment by the department to expand accessibility and improve sidewalk conditions for all residents.
PWD Responding Quickly to Streetlight Outages
During the first quarter of FY12, the Public Works Department responded to over 87 percent of street light outages within 10 business days. The Public Works Department’s ability to respond to outages has been positively impacted by the installation of over 10,000 LED streetlights which are more reliable and have longer lifespans than traditional street lights.
