Boylston Street Still Closed as Police Process Scene

Twelve blocks around the scene of Monday's bombing still remain closed.

Police are still processing a 12 blocks of a 15-block crime scene around Copley Square, but gradually reopening areas. Here's what's open and closed as of Tuesday morning:


  • Copley Square T station
  • Boylston Street from Massachusetts Avenue to Arlington Street


  • The Prudential building is accessible through the Huntington Avenue entrance. 

Police have not indicated when Boylston will reopen. "The extended crime scene scope continues to be a crime scene and may be that for several days," Police Commissioner Ed Davis said at a Tuesday morning press conference.

"We want you to live your life. We want you to be vigilant. But we do have a presence. We want to reduce that threat," he said. "Give us a little room in the Copley Square area as we process the scene but we are trying to turn it back to the community as quickly as we can."

Police were called to the corner of Boylston and Dalton streets at 9:58 a.m. Tuesday for a report of a suspicious package. Initial reports, not from police, indicated that the package was found in front of Capital Grille and had packages sticking out of it. A police bomb squad is on the scene.
