Overlapping jurisdictions

Ken, who takes the commuter rail downtown from West Newton, is among those who are frustrated by the lack of clear sidewalks around the commuter rail station, particularly on the bridge over the Pike. (Mrs. NS&S is also a West Newton regular.)

Ken thinks the problem may be that it's the Turnpike Authority's responsibility to clear the sidewalks on the bridge. (It doesn't seem quite right. The city clears the streets on the bridges over the T.)

That would be something. Newton residents and MBTA customers at the mercy of the Turnpike authority for safe going.

I'm going to do a little digging.
