New parking restrictions apply ahead of Orange Line closure – Boston News, Weather, Sports

BOSTON (WHDH) — With the closure of the Orange Line beginning Friday, parking in Boston will become even more difficult as new restrictions emerge along the shuttle route.

“Significant parking restrictions along these streets allowing for safe and accessible bus loading,” Boston Chief of Streets Jascha Franklin-Hodge said.

Dartmouth Street long term parking signs were reversed and replaced with shuttle bus parking signs.

For those who live and work in the area, losing permits and parking meters is a big deal.

“They just have to park farther away or eat up the money for garage fees,” said downtown Boston worker Chad Abatiell of his employees.

Officials said the loss of parking spaces will make things safer as hundreds of shuttles hit Boston’s busy streets.

“To accommodate this, we will be temporarily removing some parking lots to widen these intersections,” Franklin-Hodge said.

However, many said the cost of parking their cars in garages weighs on them.

“A lot of my employees obviously don’t want to pay for the garage, it’s expensive for a monthly pass when you park them every day, so they want to park on the street and a lot of them have to, and you know, they can’t afford the garage ‘ said Abatiel.

The parking changes will come into effect on Friday. According to the city, anyone who violates the signs will be fined or towed away.
