What’s The 311? Exposed Bolts, Cycle Track Parking and Rodent Sightings

Welcome back to our weekly update that highlights some of the cases appearing on 311 in the North End/Waterfront neighborhoods. All 311 cases are public information and can be found at 311.boston.gov.

Exposed Bolts on Cross Street and Salem Street

“Exposed bolts in sidewalk area at the corner of Cross & Salem streets, North End. Very dangerous. I saw 2 people walk into them with one person toppling. If the DPW or whatever department was responsible could get a saw or grinder and take those things out no one would get hurt. Thank you.”
