MassDOT and MBTA collaborated with the Friends of Leo Lydon and City of Boston to install a four post Howard clock in Lydon's name in front of the Savin Hill MBTA Station. MassDOT installed the clock this week. It will begin functioning when the MBTA completes electrical wiring.
In 2007, residents of the Savin Hill community joined together to organize a fundraising effort in memory of The Honorable Leo J. Lydon.
Lydon was raised in Dorchester and was appointed in 1999 as an Associate Justice of the Massachusetts Trial Court assigned to the Norfolk County Juvenile Court after several years of work in the Juvenile Court system. He was dedicated to the kids of Dorchester, including coaching various sports. He died in 2000 in an automobile accident on his way to work.
After years of hard work by his supporters, MassDOT, MBTA and the City of Boston, the clock has been installed as a new Savin Hill landmark and permanent reminder of Lydon's commitment to his community. The Friends of Leo Lydon plan to hold a dedication ceremony for the clock later this year.
