Officials awaiting FBI to reopen the area

Police anticipate the public can return soon

City officials said they expect a barricaded stretch of Boylston Street in the heart of the Back Bay that was the site of a deadly bombing nearly one week ago will reopen to the public soon, likely early this week.

Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis said Sunday that investigators were making progress and had collected an “enormous” amount of evidence from the site, but noted that the area will not reopen to the public until FBI investigation officials signal that their work is complete, perhaps as soon as Tuesday.
