Boston fire officials and police are asking people to avoid a block of Harrison Avenue after the cleaning of asbestos dust was unsuccessful.
Last week, crews working at the site of a steam pipe explosion used a U-Haul truck to carry away asbestos dust exposed debris. A fire inspector called the operations off because he believed something more secure was necessary to remove asbestos exposed debris.
As the cleanup of the explosion continues, traffic on Harrison Ave. will be closed. The cleanup will include washing building exteriors and sidewalks, and sweeping and double-bagging debris to be stored in secure containers at a nearby parking lot.
The block of Harrison Ave. that will be closed is between Traveler Street and William Mullins Way.
