If you’re hungering for a ride down the Beach, stay away from the Boulevard.
Work on the Boulevard from Kelly’s to the Point of Pines began last week. Right now, crews from D’Allesandro contractors have begun digging up the Boulevard, installing large drainpipes, catch basins, water lines and new fire hydrants. The work is welcomed, but pretty obtrusive. Driving up or down the Boulevard is like taking your vehicle through a backwoods country road in Georgia. The road is now mostly dirt and spotted with craters, gravel and large bumps.
So, if you decided to brave the cold and buff your car up for an early season ride down the Beach, turn at Revere Street.
