DCR resurfacing Blue Hills Parkway

| April 15, 2014

Milton, MA – Now through April 24, the Department of Conservation and Recreation will be resurfacing Blue Hills Parkway in both directions, according to a notice by the Department of Public Works. To help facilitate the resurfacing project, DCR will institute alternating lane closures on the roadway during this timeframe. The project is expected to continue weekdays between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., through Thursday, April 24.

In other DCR news, the department has begun its annual program of monthly street-sweeping along selected roadways to clean those roadways and improve the quality of stormwater runoff. The program runs through Nov. 30.

Roadways affected in Milton include Blue Hills Parkway, Brush Hill Road and Truman Highway. Parking will be prohibited on the second Tuesday of the month on Blue Hills Parkway between 8 a.m. and noon, and between noon and 3 p.m. on Brush Hill Road and Truman Highway.

“No parking” signs have been installed, noting the day and hours that parking is prohibited. State Police will enforce the restrictions, and cars in violation will be towed.

Under the federal Clean Water Act, certain ponds, lakes, streams and rivers in the state have been identified as “impaired” or polluted. DCR is targeting the sweeping program to roadways where stormwater runoff flows into those impaired waters, which include the Neponset, Mystic, Charles and Muddy rivers and Boston Harbor.
