City 'Snow Removal Strike Force' in Egleston

Crews have spread across the city to remove remaining snow piles.

The city is coordinating an effort to remove leftover - and abundant - snow piles.

Snow Strike Force teams, comprised of members from the Boston Public Works Department, Boston Transportation Department, Boston Police Department, and the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services, were in Egleston Square Monday afternoon, according to a press release from Mayor Thomas Menino's office Monday afternoon.

Jamaica Plain was buried in more than 2 feet of snow for what seemed like the duration of the storm and into Sunday and Monday.

Though the rain and warm weather has helped melt some of the snow, slush, water and snow drifts have made driving extremely difficult along the side streets.

Jamaica Plain residents can tweet at @NotifyBoston if your neighborhood still needs to be plowed.

Plows have finally come down Weld Hill st yesterday and salted last night. I did see a BPW plow driver get out and admire our huge mound of snow sitting in the street at Weld Hill and Wenhan! He spread lots of salt on the stree in front of it , but our "Monument to City Inefficiency" still stands tall. A neighbor kid has turned it into a huge igloo for kids to play inside. In the unlikely event that the City may remove it, check for kids inside first!
