In support of year-round bicycling, the City of Boston has prioritized resources toward the plowing and salting of its cycle tracks.
In the latest snowstorm, the Connect Historic Boston cycle track in downtown Boston and the North End was cleared before much of the roadway, city-owned sidewalks, corner curbs and parks. This tweet shows Boston Public Works plowing the cycle track on Staniford Street during last Thursday’s storm:
