Monumental Move Starts Construction Season

“The Hiker,” Everett’s long­standing monument to com­memorate the Spanish Ameri­can War was moved to a new home at Werner Park in North Everett to clear a path for the new 9/11 Memorial in Everett Square. Crews from Marchese Construction were on hand to move the bronze statue and the 10,000lb base.

With the move, the construc­tion season is set to begin in the City including many streets, sidewalks, plus major renova­tion work by National Grid to repair and replace gas lines. The city will also be wrapping up a number of projects includ­ing the rehabilitation of the Ev­erett Stadium main entrance, the construction of the Veter­ans Roll Call Board, and the completion of Air Force Road.
