BOSTON (AP) - Boston Mayor Marty Walsh says the city and organizers of Boston’s annual St. Patrick’s Day parade have agreed to alter the route for snow cleanup.

Walsh said Wednesday night the March 15 parade will start at Broadway Station and end at Farragut Road. He said the decision was made for safety of thousands of spectators and participants.

Boston has had more than 100 inches of snow, mostly falling since late January. Some streets and sidewalks are bordered by walls of plowed and shoveled snow.

Parade organizers and the city will coordinate volunteers to clear the new route this weekend.

Brian Mahoney, commander of the South Boston Allied War Veterans Council, has asked unions, businesses and residents to help. Organizers don’t want to postpone the parade because of the inconvenience to out-of-town participants.
