DCR, MassDOT and State Police say that since 2007, there have been 25 recorded storrowings on Storrow and Memorial drives and Soldiers Field Road on weekends during which students flow into and out of the city.
So naturally, they've asked Boston colleges and companies that rent trucks to students to remind them of the height restrictions on the three roads.
“The roads along the Charles River are a vital access point for the hundreds of thousands of students returning to Boston from around the world within the next few weeks,” said DCR Commissioner Carol Sanchez. “I urge all drivers, students and nonstudents alike, to remain constantly vigilant and heed posted height restrictions during this busy period.”
State Police Col. Richard D. McKeon also urged students to remember what red lights mean when they are walking across local roads.
