Sidewalk Patrol – Who is responsible for Commuter Rail overpasses?

Spread the love

From Stephanie Bartelt –

“Here are pics of those overpasses on Fayette and Chestnut streets, the block where I often walk my furry beast, but also a lot of kids and fellow humans walk here, too!”


The dog looks a little sad about it

“The city has never cleared these in the years that I have lived here.”


Here’s a few other examples from previous posts –


Commercial Street


Union Street at Central Square (it is clear in front of the stores)

Is it the responsibility of the MBTA / MBCR, the city, or another party? Any other entity abutting a public sidewalk is responsible for theirs.
