Salem Street roadwork

A weary citizen filed a complaint at dawn today about overnight work outside his or her window on Salem Street in the North End:

All night LOUD work site was quite disruptive to sleep for my young family. Wish there would have been some more communication for the neighborhood. All I knew was that the water was going to be shut off...would suggest that next project like this communicate that water will be shut off and there will be all night construction noise such as pipe cutting saws, front end loaders hauling gravel and dragging metal street covers, hammering and generators.
