Exit 4A project update on Derry Town Council agenda
In a meeting last month, Councilor Al Dimmock debated the need for the project with state Sen. James Rausch, while questions were raised regarding how much money the town owed for construction costs and the disappearance of some documents.
In some heated exchanges last month, Dimmock and Rausch debated the proposal during a presentation by the state Department of Transportation on the ongoing Interstate 93 widening project.
Instead of further harming the downtown and Derry, the project would help by reducing traffic congestion around Exit 4 on I-93 during the evening commute, Rausch said.
Derry’s cost for the project is capped at only $5 million because of a prior lawsuit that also involved Londonderry and Boston North, a development firm, according to Rausch and Londonderry Town Councilor John Farrell, who was also in attendance.Farrell pointed out that the paperwork for the lawsuit was lost around 2007.
