For John, BLUF: It hasn't come to this in Lowell, but if it does, you are in charge of one of the teams. Nothing to see here; just move along.

My experience is that Lowell's Government is pretty responsive. Some may say that is because of where I live, but I do drive around the City and I don't see a proliferation of potholes. I was going to say that we couldn't say that about bridges in the City, but then I remembered the new Howe Bridge, connecting the North Campus (of UMass Lowell) and University Crossing, and yesterday morning I heard a report that work has started on the Lawrence Street Bridge across the Concord River at the Southwest Corner of the Lowell Cemetery.♠

♠ Which is not to say we don't need the Rourke Bridge replaced with a "four laner". And, I am still pushing my idea of a limited access highway off 495, going across the Merrimack River into Dracut and beyond. I would bring it off just this side of the Route 133 interchange and run it across the River just beyond Lenzi's. My name for this, as I told herself at the Saint Patrick's Day Dinner Thursday evening is "The Marie Sweeney Bridge". My estimate is $350 million. Since the new President is pushing infrastructure I think we should be ready to absorb some of that job creating investment.
