The Boston Public Works Department (PWD) overnight removed 1,500 truck loads of snow from across Boston's neighborhoods. PWD crews have been working around the clock to remove what has been a historic amount of snow in the City of Boston. Since the first winter storm started at the end of January, the City has removed nearly 19,000 truckloads of snow. Boston received a total of 16 inches of snow in the most recent snow that ended on Monday, for a total of 7.5 feet since January 23. Boston is closing in on the most snow for a season in recorded history (107 inches). 

From the start of this snow season to today, Boston PWD has plowed 285,145 miles of roadway, put down over 74,862 tons tons of salt, and plowed for 174,248 hours.
