East Boston Savings Bank 5K
Brace yourself, Southie. Parking restrictions and road closures for the East Boston Savings Bank Road Race. To this we say, do we really need to remove all the cars from Day Blvd. for a 5K?
Sunday, October 2nd
On Sunday, October 2, 2016, the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) will close William J. Day Boulevard in South Boston to all traffic from Kosciuszko Circle to Farragut Road between the hours of 8:00AM-12:00PM, to accommodate the East Boston Savings Bank Charitable Foundation 5K. All lanes will be used for the race, and traffic will be detoured to adjacent roadways. East Broadway and Shore Road will serve as a route to and from Castle Island. Parking will also be prohibited along the water side of William J. Day Boulevard.
There will be no parking in this area from Saturday, October 1, 2016 starting at 10:00PM to Sunday, October 2, 2016 at 12:00PM.
Temporary overnight resident parking will be provided at the angled parking spots located between Shore Road and the Castle Island entrance beginning at 10:00PM on Saturday, October 1, 2016. This temporary parking area will be staffed and vehicles will be checked for resident parking stickers.
Good luck! Happy parking!

Does anyone else feel as though these road races should be held somewhere other than on neighborhood streets? This one seems particularly rediculous as far as putting people out. Thats a big chunck of street to block off for parking.
I retract my last comment–I beleive I misread the article. I thought they were closing East Broadway between I and Farragut. …nevermind :)
I wish when they restricted parking like this they made it resident stickers only those weekends. Every friday as soon as the resident parking sticker ban is lifted the same car with connecticut plates is parked on my block for the whole weekend
WHAT ABOUT THE PAAAAAAHKING!
So will this anomaly in traffic be used to in the phony bolonga "studies" the city is using to continue with the one ways? If the car count on Day Blvd. comes down (because it was closed) I am sure It will be an example of the new system working. No mention of the road closure. All runs should be held in Beacon Hill in the future, NO EXCEPTIONS!
What resident sticker parking lift? Every day between 6pm and 10am is resident parking. Non residents would be ticketed if they parked all weekend
how does this new post have 9 coments when other posts linger for weeks with no posts? Are we censoring comments we dont agree with?
