It has been confirmed that the $15 million dollars “announced” by Manager Murphy yesterday on WCAP’s Merrimack radio in the Morning show (available for replay here) is in fact the same $15M that Sen. Donoghue secured back in January for the Lord Overpass project. This includes the extension of Jackson Street to meet a new intersection with Dutton, Thorndike and Fletcher Streets at the gateway to downtown and provide access to the proposed Lowell Trial Court site.

The formal groundbreaking ceremony is tentatively scheduled for Monday October 14th with Governor Patrick in attendance. (Wonder if Councilor Belanger will also be on hand?)
