Drainage Issue Slows Repair of Library Steps

The steps have been blocked off for months for safety purposes.

The front steps to the ’s main branch have been roped and coned off for months, but why?

Ann Howley, chair of the Wellesley Library Board of Trustees, e-mailed in to shed some light on the situation:

“The stone steps have come loose and are a hazard to walk on so they are roped off for safety,” she said. “It has been determined that they have come loose due to a drainage problem so the drainage issue will need to be dealt with along with resetting the steps to secure them. Planning is underway and work will begin as soon as possible and be completed as quickly as possible.”

Howley said she could not provide specifics as to when the steps may be fixed.

Since we now have centralized maintenance there is no telling how long this kind of thing will take.
