Working hard or hardly working?

Back in September, fencing officially went up at Dorchester Heights/Thomas Park, signaling that construction started on this project.  This is a major renovation with some much-needed improvements coming to the Dorchester Heights Monument tower and surrounding park area.  As for the timeline of how long the park will be closed to the public, it is estimated to be roughly 18 months.

Wondering how the project is progressing? Well, you can get a bird’s eye view of it via a webcam sitting on top of the Marian Manor. 

You’ll be able to see if workers are hard at work or loafing on the job. 

If you’re curious about what’s going on on Boston Harbor, there are a few webcams on Boston Light/Little Brewster Island. You can keep on eye on things here!

    The National Park Service is in the process of extensive renovations of the entire site. When NPS takes on such projects you can be well assured that they are working within very carefully set out guidelines. The article barely covers the details of this work, but rest assured NPS has detailed it all on their own site. To see the full description of the history of the site and renovations go here:
