City Readies Property Owners, Residents to Re-Enter Blast Zone

FBI investigators make another sweep of Boylston Street on Wednesday, April 17, 2013, as they search for evidence in the bombing of the Boston Marathon.

 

The blast zone along Boylston Street is still an active crime scene, but city officials are preparing a plan to let business owners and inspectors into the area on a “staggered schedule for limited access.”

The city emergency management team along with Mayor Thomas Menino met Sunday to devise a five-phase plan for re-entry to the Copley Square blast zone in the April 15 marathon bombings, according to a press statement April 21.

The phases include:

Phase 1:  Decontamination and Testing
Phase 2:  Structural Building Assessments and Utility Coordination
Phase 3:  Debris Removal
Phase 4:  Internal Building Assessments
Phase 5:  Re-Entry, Communications, and Counseling

The plan will be implemented once the FBI clears the zone, according to the statement.

Items at a memorial at the intersection of Boylston and Berkeley streets and other area memorials will be temporarily moved to Copley Square Park. Boston Police will return personal items left at the scene that has not been retained as evidence by the FBI, according to the statement. read more
