If you look at the link TheLieWeLive posted ( City of Boston ) you'll get a nice insight. The "emergency" they referred to is snow emergencies and seems they want cars off the road and parked in the garages during serious snowstorm emergencies.
The OP's sign is rather blitzed ... and is probably just on accidently or glitched ... like when they drop the "ice on roads" signs here in the middle Summer.

called MCCA and it's the parking garage. talked to a woman on the phone. she said that in the event of a flash thunderstorm, people will be directed to the garage for safety from hail and such. sounded very professional, and was quite nice.

regarding the blitzed picture.. not sure what you mean.. i think you mean its because the picture is not the full "words" ? if so, the full words were there on the sign. but the camera shutter works faster then the sign. so when looking at the sign through a camera, all the words do not show. it shows up on camera ( or phone camera) like blinking LEDS. i can video it tomorrow or tonight if i am in the area again. but trust me.. the sign was full on, easy to read...
and its been on all day...
