Two crews shoveled snow at Readville station, yet pedestrians are still having trouble

Jake could only marvel at the amazing shoveling job done by separate Keolis and DCR crews at the steps down from Readville station to the sidewalk below: One cleared the stairs and another cleared a path along the sidewalk and yet, somehow, neither thought to make it so pedestrians could actually get from one to the other.

Keolis did promise to send down a crew to finish the job.

Hyde Park Avenue fire

The Boston Fire Department posted this photo of the Hyde Park Avenue gas-main fire around 12:30 p.m., more than 18 hours after it began.

Dousing the fire would require shutting off the 10-inch gas main that's feeding it, which would force hundreds of homes to lose heat. Officials decided to monitor the fire as National Grid workers build a temporary bypass line around it. Once that's finished, the main will be shut for repairs and then turned back on.
