Kathy Curran of NBC10 Boston is reporting that a report from January shows the state and city were aware of the issues with the light poles on Moakley Bridge. Make sure to follow Kathy for the latest!
A woman was injured by a falling light pole on the Evelyn Moakley Bridge on Tuesday afternoon. BPD has shut down the sidewalks on the bridge between Atlantic Ave and Sleeper Street (both ways) to pedestrian traffic.
The woman was taken to an area hospital will serious – although not life-threatening – injuries. It is believed that the base of the light pole became rotted. City crews removed all light poles that appeared unsafe from the bridge as a precaution.

“UNACCEPTABLE “. The City “was aware”….??
Sorry, but “aware” is not the first word that springs to mind when we’re talking about City Hall.
“Woke””, maybe. But, no…..the unhinged, obstinate, obnoxious, developmentally-arrested Teenager-In-Chief has absolutely NO problem spending your hard-earned tax dollars on white paint for unnecessary “bike/bus lanes”, but…street lights? Nah.
Things like that are just not “tweet-worthy”.
Great job at the polls, Boston.
We’re doomed. We just are.
